So many restaurants, so little time. Lunchtime is a chance to break free from your desk and gives you and your favorite coworker an excuse to venture away from the office and discover your inner “foodie”.With a crunch on time, the key is finding a place not too far from the office but not so close that you run into everyone that you work with. With that, I’ve put together a list of five places that offer several delicious dishes. Bon appétit!
1. La Panadería
La Panadería has two locations, one located off of 410 and Broadway and one located downtown. They offer delicious bread and pastries that are made onsite, hot Sandwiches and fresh salads. This is the perfect place for lunch but arrive early because parking is limited.
2. SoBro Pizza Co.
I’m always on the lookout for a good pizza, and SoBro is definitely on my list! Located in the downtown Pearl area SoBro offers a great lunch special, and really incorporates the New York style using fresh mozzarella on every pizza pie! Did I mention that they also offer a gelato bar? This place is a must for lunch time.
3. Walk-On’s Bistreaux and Bar
If you are a sports fan then you’ll love Walk-On’s. This not so typical sports bar is Located off of 281 in Hollywood Park. Walk On’s offers great sports views with big tv’s everywhere and has a huge menu offering various foods and drinks. My all-time favorite thing to order here is the veggie burger. It’s honestly the best veggie burger I’ve ever had! With its high energy happy waitstaff, Walk On’s is a great location to go to for lunch.
4. Kona Grill
Kona Grill has two locations, one at Northstar Mall, and one at La Cantera Mall. Both offer quick service and have a posh restaurant environment. They are well known for their killer happy-hour prices on appetizers and drinks, but also have awesome lunch specials such as the bistro box. Pop into Kona for very filling and well-rounded lunch.
5. Garbanzo Mediterranean Grill
Garbanzo is a great healthy lunch option without a long line. You can choose your own style from a plate, wrap, or salad with your choice of protein (including portobello mushroom), rice, hummus, cucumber salad and many more. The pita bread is always warm and they offer fresh flavored teas such as lemongrass green tea. Did I mention it’s vegan friendly too? If you’re looking for something fast but yet health Garbanzo is your best option for lunch.
