Got a Baja Chicken salad with no chicken. During this time of pick up we need to get what we order. The staff did not seem to have my internet order and I had to show it to them on my phone and then -...no chickenMore

Along with smoothies, a selection of wraps, salads and sandwiches. Careful selection from the menu can make this a healthier than average fast food stop.

I guess it's a popular place for take out so everyone crowds around the register. They do deliver if within a certain radius, so if visiting and staying at a hotel, might be worth the service. The smoothies were huge and a good value, but...didn't have the punch of flavor I was hoping for. Felt like I was just drinking a bunch of shaved ice with a splash of strawberry for the strawberry limeade. My kids seemed very pleased with theirs and the food menu looked enticing. I would give it another try.More

Perfect spot for lunch on the run or a quick healthy bite/drink. I'm always down for some korean tacos and an acai smoothie. Staff is chill, service is fast and its a great location next to my building and a prime spot in Arlington.

Tropical Smoothie Cafe is a nice place to eat at for a small meal. I had one of their wraps and it was good.

I ate there a week ago when this guy comes in yelling on his cell phone so loud and just stood at the door using colorful metaphors. My chicken salad sandwich came and I noticed it was light on the chicken. So I went to...the counter to show them how little chicken they put on it. Mean while Mr. Cell Phone was still yelling so loud it was terribly annoying and he started pacing back and forth in front of the front door making people coming in to place have walk around him. The counter clerk told me that that was all I get on my sandwich. I went back to my table still having my ears ringing when finally Mr. Cell Phone walked out. Ah quiet at last, for 5 minutes when he walks back in with a bag from the deli across the street. He promptly sits down at a table next to me and starts eating his bagel and then gets back on the phone at starts his ranting again at a high volume and again continues using very explicit colorful metaphors. By this time I finished my bread sandwich, chips and smoothie so I went back up to the counter again and this time I tell manager the loud guy was back with food from the deli and he was sitting at a table eating. He didn't seem to care so I told him to have a great day and I won't be back.More
