    The Millennium Perk smoothie is really good. Also try the chicken chili

    Hey Protein Bar, you should join Freebie! It’s pretty rad and the benefits are great for both you and me. Check it out!

    Serving size continues to get smaller. That bowl of pesto is barely half full...

    There's always a line out the door. Don't be discouraged; it doesn't take that long.

    A little pricey, but love the vegan original

    The spinach & pesto quinoa bowl with tofu instead of chicken is amazing!

    Abi Worthington · June 26, 2013

    Go for the original barrito if you're looking for a clean, heavy meal. Tons of protein and carbs.

    Vegan options

    The Buffalo bar-rito, with its standard all-natural chicken, like all menu items that come with meat, can easily be made vegetarian by asking for tofu instead.

    Serious Eats · May 13, 2013
  • Erica M.

    Please be mindful -- we do NOT have the scrambled egg whites (we have egg patties with yolk included instead) or the raw juices (noted on menu). This location is small but IT IS the original! :)

    Erica McKeehen · April 27, 2013

    Try the meat smoothies.

    This is the original store. All the others were built upon the experimentation done here.

    Healthy options—try the quinoa chili—are the rule, rather than the exception at this quickie spot Read more

    The best bar-ritos and chili bowls. A great option for eating healthy in the loop. Armando is excellent, great service and quick with recommendations!

    When you order a shake be sure you tell them what size. They don't ask and assume you want the large one. (tell them at the register too!)

    The line in the morning can be long. Employees sometimes seem more concerned with other things than the customers waiting in line. The smoothies are pretty good and there are not any alternatives.

    The sweet potato tortilla chips are a must
