b.good, the chain of healthy fast food restaurants, has been around for a while and I’ve certainly been a fan. Now that its newest location is a hop skip away from me, I wanted to share a quick review. This place just makes me happy. It helps that this particular branch sits next to my two favorite athletic stores, Lululemon and Lucy, adding to its aura of health. I know I can walk into this very family friendly eatery and get food I really like, cheap. Pseudo fast food that’s entirely satisfying without all the grease and salt that usually leaves me bloated and tired. One of my ultimate noshes is French fries, and there are two great varieties here, both oven-baked with the skins left on and lightly seasoned: the regular version that my son loves more than McDonald’s fries, and a sweet potato version that offers thick-cut deep orange strips (ahh, all that vitamin A, my eyes feel better already!). There are four kinds of burgers (beef, turkey, veggie, and grilled chicken) made to order six different ways. My favorite is the West Side with avocado, tomato, and chipotle salsa. There are also not-your-run-of-the-mill salads, steamed seasoned veggies, and delicious fruity shakes or milkshakes thickened with nonfat frozen yogurt.
If you sign up for the e-newsletter, you’ll get coupons and info on store events (like their garlicky-greens eating world championship where the winner downed 7 pounds of sautéed spinach!). I also learned that they’re adding back eggs into their veggie burger recipe—a welcome change that should help alleviate the dryness. I even get a 10% discount on all orders because of b.good’s partnership with my health club. Now they just need delivery! Visit b.good.
