“Chipotle for Mediterranean...but better!”

Cava Grill Dobbin Station
Ranked #65 of 269 Restaurants in Columbia
Restaurant details
Reviewed 13 February 2017

First time there was delicious! Follows the Chipotle concept with a Mediterranean theme, and almost all the the ingredients are gluten free, as are the preparations. Different kinds of bowls and salads, most of the proteins are GF. Big flavors such as Siracha tahini and the vegetarian with us loved his rice and Lentil bowl. Also amazing drinks. Loved it!

Food is so good and once you try it, you will keep coming back! You should get the super greens with white rice and then for protein get half of the roasted veggies and then another protein of your choice! Crazy feta is good! There are so many combinations!

The Chipotle of Middle Eastern food. Really good spicy lamb meatballs- I am addicted. There are so many options from salads to grains to rice as a base. Multiple toppings. They advertise that there are millions of different combinations. I have never had the same meal twice and they have all been good

Some reviews describe Cava as "fast food." Those folks simply should not write reviews. Cava Grill is a healthy and tasty alternative to the fast food plague. Like Chipotle, Cava offers a wide range of ingredient choices, but Cava has a much more diverse menu including both meat and vegetarian choices. We enjoyed greens & grain. Choose one of 4 fresh greens and select a type of rice. Then the fun begins. Next choose up to 3 dips or spreads (6 choices!) including crazy feta or eggplant + red pepper. After that, move to protein. I had felafel; others had roasted seasonal veggies. Choices here also included chicken, lamb, beef and grilled meatballs.

But wait! There's more! 14 toppings are offered including pickled banana peppers, raw beet + dill salad, kalamata olives, cauliflower quinoa, and pita crisps. 6 dressings are offered to top your creation. I had lemon herb tahini. Others had the sriracha greek yogurt.

Beverages are WAY beyond fast food places. Cava offers interesting teas as well as fresh seasonal juices. An exceptional meal. The restaurant was filled with a line to the door. Service was quick. The staff was helpful with choices.

Acoustics are rather noisy.

This place is so good I hesitate to tell people or I won't get in the door. This food is so fresh, so clean, so healthy, so delicious. For someone who eats gluten free this place is heaven. Have the lamb meatballs and be sure to try an amazing tea like green apple fennel. Been here four times in a month. Took my 8 yr old grandson and he loved the pita with chicken and the hummus with carrot sticks. I always have leftovers from my meal.
