This restaurant is by far one of my favorite, I love there Acai Berry Boost smoothie. It's healthy and nutritious just what I need, when I'm getting off of work. I like this place so much that I even turned my parents onto it.

I visited Smoothie King a couple days ago because I like their buffalo chicken wrap. Upon waiting my husband and I looked around and noticed the place is in need of repair, which made us wonder if I should've ordered in the first place.

Huge fan of tropical smoothie. Was a customer of the original location. The pomegranate plunge is my favorite. Always consistently good. The staff at this location is excellent. The only issue I have is the smell. It's quite bad when you first walk in. I informed the staff. Hopefully they can resolve the issue. Will definitely return.

The place smells bad every time I go in. They are not set up to use the app. My chipotle chicken flatbread was half cold and didn't taste right. I usually get the avacolada smoothie no sugar/extra pineapple, but it never tastes right from this location.

I love to stop by when I'm close by and looking for a healthy option. They have delicious salad and wraps. Their smoothie options are many and very yummy. They are also very well marked so that you know what selections are healthier.

First time visiting this restaurant and I will be back. A veggie & chicken feta flatbread with Apple kale salad was so delicious!!!! And I had my meal in under 10 minutes, even better!!! Food was fresh and healthy. Customer service was pretty good, though the guys in the back couldn't stop talking about working out. Only complaints: 1) bathroom... More

I went here on lunch today and waited an hour in the drive thru! I have no idea what took so long. There were maybe 3 cars in the parking lot and 1 car in front of me in the drive thru. After waiting forever, they gave me the wrong smoothie and then acted disgruntled when I said something about... More
