Huge fan of tropical smoothie. Was a customer of the original location. The pomegranate plunge is my favorite. Always consistently good. The staff at this location is excellent. The only issue I have is the smell. It's quite bad when you first walk in. I informed the staff. Hopefully they can resolve the issue. Will definitely return.

The place smells bad every time I go in. They are not set up to use the app. My chipotle chicken flatbread was half cold and didn't taste right. I usually get the avacolada smoothie no sugar/extra pineapple, but it never tastes right from this location.

I love to stop by when I'm close by and looking for a healthy option. They have delicious salad and wraps. Their smoothie options are many and very yummy. They are also very well marked so that you know what selections are healthier.

First time visiting this restaurant and I will be back. A veggie & chicken feta flatbread with Apple kale salad was so delicious!!!! And I had my meal in under 10 minutes, even better!!! Food was fresh and healthy. Customer service was pretty good, though the guys in the back couldn't stop talking about working out. Only complaints: 1) bathroom... More

I went here on lunch today and waited an hour in the drive thru! I have no idea what took so long. There were maybe 3 cars in the parking lot and 1 car in front of me in the drive thru. After waiting forever, they gave me the wrong smoothie and then acted disgruntled when I said something about... More

My smoothie no matter how many times I order it is never EVER made right. I ordered a smoothie with lots of coconut...couldn't taste any coconut, surprise! It was very sour and watered down. The quality since the new owner came has gone down! I have never had a problem with my smoothies until then...maybe they just need to clean... More

The place is dirty and it was the worst wrap I've had -- and coming from Florida, I've had a few. Also waited fifteen minutes for my food. Skip this one.
