I ordered the peanut butter açai oatmeal. It's freaking delicious... and fairly inexpensive. Some items like their juices are a bit expensive, but good quality. Staff were friendly and served up our food very quickly! The perfect place for healthy people on the go!!!

Plenty of options and very quick. We stopped here this morning on our way to a convention. All 4 of us got something different but it was all very good and filling.

great juices, and really good salads. Going back shortly to try the harissa lentils, which looked good.

No need to tell, locals who are into fitness and healthy eats know about Protein Bar's in town. Sure, it's a bit pricier than some other quick-eat options, but there is a lot of thought and effort going into these fantastic bowls and wraps.

I had the Green Colada which was very tasty and healthy. Also, a pretty reasonable price. I would definitely come back to this place for a healthy meal or snack.

Ive been to this place a million times. Been here for breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner and everything in between. Who says fast food can't be healthy? Yes the price is higher than Mc Donalds but isn't your health worth it? The food is delicious and it won't break the bank.

We stopped in for a quick bite and wasn't sure what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised with the flavor of my Bar-rito. Everyone in our group enjoyed their food, but there isn't much more to say than that. It is an order at the counter and go pick up your stuff kind of place. So not much to say... More

We visited Chicago for three days and everyday we ate here. I'm vegan so can find it hard sometimes to find fast healthy and tasty food. The protein bar blew me away. The flavours, colours, variety, tastes were all amazing. The tofu was the best I've ever had, I don't what they do with it but it was divine. The... More

We stopped in for lunch on the 4th of July. Everything else near Navy Pier and the park was packed. We were delighted with the healthy choices and prices. It was quick and delicious. Wish we had one in our town!
