Review: Noodles and Co.

I hadn’t seen my friend Dave in a long time, so we decided to meet for lunch last Thursday, right after the first snowstorm. Since he works in Clifton, and I work in Mason, we tried to meet somewhere in the middle. He suggested Noodles in Kenwood, and I said “Sure!” Though you know me and chains, Noodles is a small-ish one, and specializes in fresh food. I’m down with that.

I got there a little early, and thus got to peruse the menu. They have a “Pick 3” combo– one salad or pasta dish, one side dish, and one protein. I chose Pad Thai with chicken and a side Asian salad. It was a fairly solid Pad Thai– it had two little peppers next to it, so I expected it to be fairly spicy, but it wasn’t– it just packed a little heat. It wasn’t too The chicken was freshly grilled, and pretty tasty, and the side salad was simple but hit the spot, even though the fat free Asian dressing was a little too vinegar-y.

The price was right, too– less than $10 for lunch is always great for me. I’d definitely go back and try some other dishes.

  • This is a semi-surprising family favorite. Typically, my daughter gets a salad, and we all get extra red peppers. A nice, quick option for a meal.

  • My family has been to several locations, but the Hyde Park restaurant takes the cake. By far the most friendly and accomodating and it may be all in my head, but it seems to make the food taste even better there. Everytime we’ve visited the Hyde Park location, they’ve either given us our drinks free or a couple cookies free for no reason! We all found things we love there including my extremely picky 6 year old. The menu isn’t extensive, but what they do have they do it right. A family of three can dine for about $20-25. Their mac-n-cheese is to die for! We enjoy the butter noodles with chicken and the chicken noodle soup. Before you leave make sure you get one of their large cookies (preferrably the cinnamon) – so good! Definitely one of our family’s favorites and definitely worth the trip to Hyde Park. I’ve recommended it to all my family and friends.
