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

    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.

    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! :)

    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.
