What you’re getting: Grilled steak salad
Tasty and reasonably priced salads, sandwiches, and plates round out the menu at this casual restaurant at The Forum shopping center in Carlsbad. The parking lot can be busy during the lunch rush, but you won’t wait long to get your food, so it evens out in the end. Bonus: if you want to get a little grocery shopping done on your lunch break, there’s a Jimbo’s next door.
Protein-heavy salads, like the grilled steak with pineapple-mango salsa, jicama, cashews, and jalapeño lime dressing, are a smart option for lunch. Salads come with a thick slice of grilled focaccia. It’s just the right amount of carbs, protein, and veggies.
