I'd never been to Noodles and Company before. They offer a variety of different style noodles including gluten free with different sauces. Then you can add the type of meat of your choice, shrimp or tofu. They also offer a small or regular portion so if you are watching calories you can add soup or salad with the smaller portion of noodles. Calories are listed for all the menu items, though nutritional values are not on the menu. I tried the Japanese Pan Noodles without meat along with a Tomato Cucumber salad and both were very flavorful. There were a number of salad options available too. Prices are OK for a restaurant that isn't full service. You order at the counter & they bring the food to your table but soft drinks are serve yourself. There is outdoor seating but we did not use the patio.
