great wraps – For under $7 the chicken wraps are solid and tasty. The wraps come with your choice of wheat or white bread. The only downside to this place is that the parking lot is crammed, but this is worth all the inconvenience. The red salsa is to die for. If you have not tried the BBQ sauce with the wings you need to. For 50 cents a wing you cannot beat this price. Although they are very busy during the day, I highly recommend this restaurant.
Great healthy food – The food is healthy if you order properly, it tastes good and is always fresh. The atmosphere is cafeteria style, it's a casual place. The prices have gotten a bit high for what it is, but I guess that's the price you pay for fresh food, so it's worth it. Their fresh brewed iced tea is particularly good. I'm guessing they filter their water because at some restaurants, iced tea tastes like chemicals, but not here. The wraps and salads are delicious. The rotisserie chicken is very good. I haven't ordered anything I didn't enjoy. I recommend.
There's much more than chicken at this healthy, quick-serve cafe. – In Short
At midday this simple, counter-service eatery draws a business-lunch crowd, but come evening local gym rats, police officers and firemen line up for the non-greasy grub. Patrons place orders at the register and wait for their orders of the signature rotisserie chicken and sides like sweet butternut squash and slightly spicy red potatoes. The menu also offers huge, crisp salads and fresh wrap sandwiches, including a popular vegetarian pita stuffed with rice, vegetables and ranch dressing.
Great tasting healthier food – The food is great and if you make sure to order the right thing its actually pretty healthy as well. The call ahead for pickup is the best way to go even if you plan on eating in because the lines can get pretty long. Their pricing would be my only complaint but its worth the premium for good food and service. The counter staff is always cheerful and happy and will get to know you by name or order if you go often enough. They also surprise you every now and then with a free small side in your to-go bag. Great place.
Delicious chicken – I love going to CCC for their rotisserrie chicken meal. The chicken pasta salad ( a penne pasta w/chunks of chicken in a creamy russian dressing) and the hot potato (w/grilled onions) are soooo good. I also like their wraps. i've had the Combo and the Chinese chicken, both which i would recommend. Their Chinese Chicken salad is good but I recommend getting the small unless you are a strong eater.
I avoid the lunch rush because it can get really crowded and parking becomes a nightmare.
fresh, no frill food – I LOVE this place... everything is freshly made, the place is super clean and the food is consistently good. They will change any thing as you like (i.e., dressing on the side, no noodles, add Chinese dressing to any wrap, etc.). They are super friendly and helpful. The Chinese chicken salad dressing is great. I highly recommend this place for a pretty quick and casual dinner. Great for lunch. Or call ahead and have them make it and bypass the line.
