Went here with 7 family members for the first time. Everyone raved about the food. Other than the upstairs restroom needing a little cleaning attention everything was great. The food is by far is the best for the price anywhere. Love the menu. Can't wait...More

Delicious, healthy meal choices! We stopped here looking for gluten-free options and were not disappointed. The service was very fast, and the meals all sounded good - it was hard to choose. Would definitely eat here again.

Fresh, healthy, fast, delicious! The menu is well enough to cover different diets. As a Mediterranean coast person, I can tell this is the best Mediterranean-ish fast food so far. I tried The Apollo dish. Recommend!

I you like salads, their "salad bowl" is monstrous and has tangy dressing. Got mine as take-away. Not expensive and good service.

Great healthy, hearty salads. Interesting choices and delicious dressings. I loved that they only had water and didn't bother with soda. They are true to themselves.

Wow, everything was so fresh! We both ordered salad bowls. Nice variety of greens and toppings, inhouse dressings, and the grilled chicken was excellent. Don't be concerned about going away hungry, the salads are huge. Very friendly people working the counter.

I don't know if they have different utensils to serve gluten free if you are following a strict diet.
