    sub par air fries

    French fries were soggy, white & pasty, flavorless. They needed like 30 more minutes in the oven and/or an extra 100 degrees.

    Decent

    I've tried it a few times, some items I've enjoyed while some have been pretty bland. I liked the bison cheesesteak a lot (w/ the bbq sauce). Is it just me or is a 24 oz smoothie for $2.90 an excellent deal? I'll definitely be back for more of these

    not so great

    I always wanted to try this place but the reviews aren't so great but they were having a special buy 1 drink and get a free lunch. I figured this would be the best time to try it. the line was long as always for free food. the staff was friendly and super fast. i got the bison cheesteak wrap. okay so it was covered in oil! it was mostly tortilla. now the taste ---not good. i ate 2/3 and threw the rest away. it didn't really have a flavor. whatever it tastes like was not appealing. glad i didn't want waste my money.

    great, healthful food

    I live right near here but didn't try it until recently. I was hesitant because it is supposed to be healthy. I wish I had tried it sooner though, since I was actually really happy with the dishes I've tried. It seems like it is mostly a takeout place, but they do have seating available. So far I've eaten the bison wrap (kind of like a burrito) and the bison philly. Both were really good. It is a little more expensive than a normal sandwich, but not that much more. Plus, it is a hearty meal that I don't regret after I eat it. I will be back!

    Trade offs - healthy so it ain't a Big Mac

    I got a coupon in the mail - $5 off any purchase over $10. That's more or less half off! I was working from home around the corner, so when lunch time came around, coupon in hand I checked it out in search of a well priced, but more importantly healthy lunch. The place has had a recent facelift, and they now heavily advertise no menu item over 500 calories. This all sounded good to me. I ordered the kitchen wrap (ground turkey, peppers, tomatoes, onions, lettuce, low-fat mozzarella), and to drive my tab to over $10 I did the 2 sides for $3.99 and picked the home fries (baked with peppers and onion) and a garden salad which was fresh lettuce, cucumbers, and some lovely ripe cherry tomatoes. The sides would have been about $6 ordered independently (and they were small so that would have been a little excessive), so this seemed like a decent deal. So - the important part - how was the food? It was decent. I got hot sauce as a condiment (they offer a few options) which made the wrap tastier, but it still seemed a little bland. The salad and the potatoes were fine. The manager and staff were super friendly and the place was spotless. If I worked around here, I might very well come back often because it was reasonably tasty and absolutely healthy. A no brainer really. Would I come back for a craving? No. Would I come back to be healthy and for something decent? Sure. Check it out if you are healthy minded and have been interested. It is a little pricier than your deli or fast food options (just a little) but you are assured fresh low calorie food.

    healthy should be good

    I ordered delivery from here 3 times in the last month. I got the italian chicken wrap with sides, quesadilla wrap, chopped salad and tuna wrap with eggwhites. italian chicken wrap was decent, although last time i got it as an entree and it wasn't very good. the tuna with eggwhites were mushy with no vegetable flavors and i dont even know if they remembered the eggwhites. Sides are ok, lentil soup isnt that good and veggie chilli is passable. It is a little pricey and healthy food is not an excuse to lower quality, freshness and taste.

    A necessary evil, I suppose

    I'm grateful for the existence of these places, as they come in handy when you want to get something healthy and/or just to lose weight. Nothing in the store has more than 500 calories; in fact, most items come in between 300 and 450. Unfortunately, most of it is mediocre-tasting at best. Predictably, the items higher in fat taste better: the bison burger is better than the chicken burger, which is better than the ostrich burger, which is only slighly better than eating cardboard. The two soups -- the veggie chili and the lentil -- are both decent. The build-your-own-salad option is OK, but other places do the same thing, and with fresher produce. Value isn't great -- it's possible to spend over $20.00 in here and not even get 600 calories. But it certainly does take some of the thought out of dieting.
