Not as good as it used to be

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

I can't wait for Protein Bar to come to NYC. What amazing healthy yummy fast food concept. I had breakfast there. Would eat there everyday if I could. Egg whites over spinach with chopped tomatoes and just a touch of hot sauce. My mouth is watering as I write this. Don't miss it.

I am sick and tired of McDonald's and Burger King. Protein bar has good healthy food. I ordered quinoa with beans and vegetables, not greasy or fatty at all and it is vegetarian! Good vegan choices too! I'll be coming to this place again for lunch and breakfast.

Went to Protein Bar before we left Chicago in the morning and their bfast burrito was amazing. The pesto and egg burrito was cooked to perfection. The egg whites were light and fluffy. My eggs were not runny and the wheat wrap was grilled perfectly. If I ever return to Chicago, I will be back here for bfast.

Healthy food with a ton of protein. Most sandwiches and salad have at least 30 grams of protein. I had the original roll-up with fresh chicken, quinoa, and black beans in a grilled rolled tortilla. Absolutely delicious I recommend this restaurant highly and will definitely return.

Super healthy and delicious food at this very quick place. Had a chicken quinoa bowl for lunch. Was totally satisfying. They also have tasty snacks like "skinny popcorn", bananas, nuts. They have good signature drinks that I would describe as protein shakes. Love the breakfast bowls too. Good place for someone who is health conscious and needs food fast. Chicken... More
