When I heard MAD Greens was setting up shop in Austin, I knew things were about to get really delicious. And they opened their first, of what will be seven reported locations in the Austin area, in the Rock Rose of the Domain.
Me and salad have a mixed relationship. It’s not that I don’t like it, it’s that I generally don’t have the time to whip up the yummy combinations and dressings that I would like to top on my salad of choice. So I either opt for a bag of lettuce with store-bought dressing, or I don’t eat salad. And everybody should eat salad! I think I utter the words “If only there was a X restaurant like Chipotle…” at least once a day, I love the quick convenience I get and the ability to build my dream meal.
MAD Greens hails from Colorado, their tagline is “MAD Greens, Eat Better”, and they believe healthy, local, and scratch made ingredients should be accessible to everyone. They prepare all 21 of their salad dressings fresh daily in-house, and offer a variety of fresh toppings (Like pears, sun-dried tomatoes, feta cheese, and grilled citrus chicken) for you to build yourself the perfect custom salad.
When you walk through the line you can see every single ingredient that is going to go into your salad. You can build a salad from scratch, or choose from some of their pre inspired combinations. From there your salad maker will follow the line with you as you pick and choose what you want to add to your salad.
If you’re not in the mood for a salad, you can also get fresh squeezed juices, paninis, wraps, pasta salads, soups, and hummus. So when we went, we were sure to try a few things and take pictures so you could see how yummy everything looks!
I was so impressed with the freshness, the ease of ordering, and the overall flavor with everything, MAD Greens really is making it easy to eat healthy! Can’t wait to see where they pop up next around town, we’re hoping one in Cedar Park.
