Noodles shouldn't be so expensive

Noodles Inc is pretty expensive for what you get. I do love the food, but I can go to the store and get more for my $.

Our son takes us to dinner at Noodles and everyone including our three granddaughters come away pleased. We are vegetarian and have many delicious choices. It take awhile to learn to navigate the menu but now we have settled on our favorites. Or we can decide to try something new.

I stopped in for a quick lunch and the place was swarming with people. So I decided on a carry out. When I arrived to pick it up, it was waiting. But the waiter/check out clerk ignored me. When I finally got his attention, he grabbed my bag, handed it to me, and forgot to put an item in it... More

Good place for lunch or a quick dinner. Very good options and something different from the "usual" chains. More often than not a very good meal depending on who's adding the final touches. As a bonus we like that they serve Dreaming Tree wines. Parking can be difficult and tight at this location.

Staff was friendly however it was very cramped in here. I had the mushroom and steak stroganoff and I wasn't at all impressed. It was overloaded with parmesean cheese and had a nasty texture to it and barely any steak which was the best part of it. My girlfriend had the spicy spaghetti and she really enjoyed it. Which basically... More

I know this is part of a chain and their standardized process makes them all "about the same" but I always enjoy this place. I was in Madison for Ironman and needed my carbs, maybe not as many as I got but the food was just so good! We ate here twice and loved it both times. The building is... More

This was my first experience with this restaurant. I thought at first I'd have the mac & cheese, but then decided on the Japanese noodles. Wise choice. Wasn't sure which size plate to go with. But fortunately the gal taking my money suggested a large, when I told her I was hungry. Well, the plate wasn't all that large, but... More

99% of the time I ask my nieces where they would like to go for lunch/dinner it's Noodles & Company. Luckily they have a great selection besides their ordered mac and cheese to keep me agreeable. The spicy dishes truly have a kick!

This is a fast-casual eatery but one of my favorites when I'm in WI. They offer a variety of noodle dishes including Pad Thai and spicy Indonesian style that I always favor. Their prices are very fair and the quality always seems consistently good which makes visiting any of their locations a consistently good experience. Their staff are always well-trained... More
