If you were to trace the origin of one of Jamba Juice?s freshly squeezed juices, it wouldn?t take long before you ended up face to face with its most important supplier: Mother Nature. Whole fruits and vegetables from her gardens, groves, and orchards fill Jamba Juice's stores: kale, apples, pineapple, carrots, beets, and other produce. Although it?s serious about filling cups with wholesome, natural ingredients, the company is a little more playful when it comes to the palate.

Their commitment to simplifying healthy eating can be found throughout the Jamba Juice menu, from its Fruit and Veggie smoothies to its Artisan Flatbreads. Customers can also kick-start their days with six varieties of Energy Bowls?antioxidant-packed blends of fresh fruit, Greek yogurt or soy milk, and an assortment of dry toppings and fresh fruits like acai berries and strawberries?all made to order and packaged in a convenient portable bowl.

In addition to providing healthy options to customers, Jamba Juice sponsors Team Up for a Healthy America. The initiative is focused on improving childhood nutrition and fitness by encouraging fans to join the Team Up community of celebrities, athletes and other leaders committed to helping the nation stay fit?which you can do by visiting the main Jamba Juice website.

Of course there are also the classic juices on the juice menu. Purely Carrot, for instance, which is as elemental and straightforward as it sounds. But there?s also the Tropical Greens, which combines apple juice and pineapple with super greens and chia seeds. And there?s Kale Orange Power, loaded with kale, bananas, and orange juice?all of which are packed with a serious helping of vitamins and manganese. Regardless of which flavor you choose, each 12-ounce juice packs in at least 1.5 servings of fruits and veggies, making it a convenient way to restore energy and get nutrition on the go.

With nearly 600 stores serving Energy Bowels, Jamba Juice is the perfect way to blend in the good.

The culinary artists at Tortilla Flats serenade palates with an eclectic mix of both inventive and regionally authentic Mexican dishes. Tacos jaliscienses sweeten a beef-and-chorizo blend with pineapple and cabbage, and the molcajete flats ignite a flavor explosion of steak, grilled chicken, shrimp, and cactus in a housemade sauce. Early risers can sate morning cravings with breakfast specialties such as chorizo omelets or eggs with cactus and onions. Like a robot assembly manual written in invisible ink, the menu also presents a daunting challenge: the 2.5-pound burrito supreme stuffed with chicken, beans, rice, and lettuce, all buried under a generous helping of sauce, cheese, olives, guacamole, and sour cream. Tortilla Flats’ shareable Iguana margarita loosens inhibitions with 12 ounces of tequila and two Coronas.

It is not just the pastas, sandwiches, and pizzas that keep guests coming back to Pete's Restaurant and Brewhouse and Original Pete's—the handcrafted beers also play a major role, quenching thirsts with flavors ranging from the Uptown blonde’s light layers of honey to the highly hoppy profile of the Skinner’s Horse IPA. Pete’s team keeps meals in balance by offering food-and-beer-pairing suggestions, assuring diners that the Midtown ale harmonizes with fish tacos and that the Old Town red—a malty, medium-bodied amber ale—improves coordination for slam-dunking meatballs.

Sushi King and Boba Tea Zone's name perfectly encompasses the shop's main draw: classic sushi rolls and sweet, chilly cups of tea laden with tapioca pearls. But there are other menu items worth the trip, including snacks such as popcorn chicken or sweet potato fries. Particularly famous is the Sushi Burrito, a giant handheld sushi roll with ingredients such as soft shell crab or panko chicken wrapped in a nori "tortilla."
