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.

Ate here for my first time after walking by a million times. The Comiskey Cocoa Smoothie is unreal. Such a great taste!! I also ordered the Super Original BarRito. Simply excellent. I will come back for sure!

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

I have to say, when I first heard about The Protein Bar I was NOT inclined to try it. I'm not a super health-food freak, and it just sounded kind of gross. I stand corrected. You can enjoy this place even if you aren't obsessed with super healthy food. The original "bar-rito" is my go-to. I've been to Protein Bar... More

They only seem to think of using ingredients that sound healthy,, with little thought to making them taste good. My wife described one shake as tasting like medicine.

So glad this place was recommended to me for a good lunch spot in Chicago. I'm here for a couple days and staying in tourist central but wanted a good spot for lunch. I got the southwest salad and it was great! The service was really helpful and very quick to get you what you ordered. I'll probably come back... More

We came here to meet someone, not knowing if we'd eat here, but we did, and I'm glad for that. The food was outstanding. The selection was wide enough for anyone to enjoy, and the inclusion of all ingredients and fat and calories allowed for careful selection if you wished. My quinoa bowl was really good and the smoothie I... More
