Noodles & Company: Made. Different

Made. Different. What does that mean? It means the dishes served by Noodles & Company, a fast-casual restaurant with seven area locations that serve classic noodle and pasta dishes inspired by cuisines from around the world, are free of artificial colors, flavors, preservatives, and sweeteners.

It means that you can feel good about bringing your family to Noodles & Company because they don’t own a microwave, a can opener, or a freezer.

It means you can trust that you are eating really great food, made from really fresh ingredients, that is cooked to order exactly how you like it. Every time.

Noodles & Company opened its first restaurant in the area nearly 10 years ago. Since, the fast-casual chain has been committed to creating a warm, welcoming, comfortable atmosphere where families can feel at home and feel good about the food they are eating.

Every dish is cooked-to-order, served on stoneware, and features quality ingredients like cage-free eggs, naturally-raised and antibiotic-free pork, organic tofu, more than a dozen vegetables prepared and chopped daily, and a range of colorful herbs like coriander, lemongrass, and basil.

The menu is as extensive as it is diverse, which makes it ideal for busy families who need to appease a wide range of taste preferences and palates. From appetizers, soups and salads like the Potstickers, Tomato Basil Bisque, or the Chinese Chicken Chop Salad to main courses such as the Wisconsin Mac & Cheese, Spaghetti and Meatballs, or the Bangkok Curry, there are plenty of options to suit even the most discerning 5-year-old (or 35-year-old, including an assortment of wine and beer).

Though “noodles” is in the name, Noodles & Company offers plenty of vegetarian and noodle-free options available, such as its BUFF Bowls, which feature a double portion of protein and veggies served over a bed of spinach. And, with more than 120 menu combinations that are 500 calories or less as well as gluten-free alternatives like rice noodles and gluten-free fusilli, choosing healthier options for your family is simple.

The average cost of a meal is a budget-friendly $8 but dine in the restaurant on “Family Nights,” which are held every Thursday evening between 4 to 8 pm, and kids eat free with the purchase of an adult entrée. In addition, the restaurant also offers online ordering with in-store pick up and catering for 20 to 200, with 24-hour notice, which helps make birthday parties or celebrations a snap.
