Healthy quick lunch!

I have been going a few times a month for lunch and I love the pressed juices and the bowls, with quinoa ! Really tasty and fast service.

We were in Chicago for a convention and wanted a quick and nutritious breakfast. We got both at The Protein Bar on Wabash. We ordered Protein Scramble with spinach, tomatoes, and spicy choloulu sauce. It was delicious. We did not intially see the coffee, so got some of their bottled juice combinations. They were good but very pricey ($6.99), more... More

Lots of healthy choices for breakfast, although half the items in our order were messed up or incomplete. Oatmeal was only lukewarm. Once we notified the staff of some issues, they did fix it to the best of their ability.

Fast. Delicious all 5 meals. Proportions not gimoungous. I love the quinoa,HMO free protein, black beans , veggies and fresh ingredients in my burrito. Seating is tight but opens up fast. In your face McDonalds. This is the new model that will eat your lunch. Packed but brisk line. These are everywhere downtown. Texas is callin y'all down south.

I visit this place when visiting Chicago for work. it's the perfect place for truly healthy food on the go. They're doing things right, this isn't pseudo-health food. I really hope that this brand expands to some other states. I would love to have one in St. Louis. This is the ideal spot for the health-minded that are on the... More

Highly recommend the Guac and Roll Wrap. It has grilled chicken, guacamole and quinoa along with dressing. Very satisfying.

We arrived shortly before close and received a warm welcome after a long day in the museums. The manager helped us sort through the best menu options for kids and explained all of the spices, servicing sizes, and choices. The menu options cater to healthy choices through out and there are not really any bad choices. If you like spice... More

Protein bar is such a great place for healthy food and smoothies and juices. Their food items are very tasty and healthy as well. Even if you aren't a health food fan, you can't help but love the Protein Bar. My only complaint is that they need to offer some special juices and smoothies as they have not changed the... More

Hi Cheryl, Good news! On 3/23, we will offer our spring Avo-Matcha blend: Avocado, matcha green tea, raw honey, almond milk, and vanilla protein. Super delicious and refreshing! I'd love for you to give it a try on us - shoot us a note to hq@theproteinbar.com! More

Food is still good but prices have risen and specials disappeared. Not as busy as they used to be so I may not be the only one who is thinking like this
