My husband and I stopped here for lunch for the first time recently. What a pleasant surprise! Jacksonville is heavy on chain restaurants and fast food and I am really looking for a more unique experience and I found it here at Forkful.
It is a casual seating restaurant, you order your main dish at the counter and pick your toppings similar to a Subway line style then you pay and sit down. You can choose a wrap, salad, pasta as your main style of dish. There might have been more options but I was sold on the wrap. You then walk down the line and pick as many toppings as you want to add after picking your main theme of either chicken (they had two styles), chimchurri beef, tofu, the list goes on. The selection of toppings was fresh, diverse and plentiful and mostly organic. I would have picked more but my wrap was getting too huge. You end with a dressing of some type. I tried a lemon vinaigrette and my husband likes spicy so he had a southwest theme.
For the wrap that was too large for me to finish, a bag of pita chips and hummus and also a drink with free refills it was $8.35. I could be off by a penny or two. For me this value can not be beat. The veggies and toppings were all fresh and tasty and most of all.... Healthy. The hummus tasted homemade too. For you vegan people out there the menu had vegan options and also gluten free. I never expected to be able to order a vegan dish in Jacksonville, not that I would.
If I had to pick something to critique at all I would only say that based on my particular experience it was a little confusing at first. I didn't know the concept or what my options were and although the gentleman making my wrap was super polite and nice he wasn't overly helpful when I got a little confused over what I was supposed to say or do. He just smiled at me. That's okay though. I like smiles and I quickly figured it out. It would be really helpful though to have a sign with guidance on what the process is OR have employees ask if it is your first time and if so walk you through it just once. "First you pick one of these options, then add this or any of these" type of thing.
I am happy to have found this place and would recommend it to everyone! I plan on taking my son next! Thanks Forkful!
