Proclaiming itself to be the Cheers of Lakewood, Chad's Grill has dedicated nearly 30 years to the quelling of rumbling bellies with a savory menu of classic, scratch-made comfort dishes crafted with ingredients sourced from Colorado farms. Diners can anchor incisors into a juicy, fresh, fire-roasted rotisserie chicken ($9.99/quarter, $12.99/half). A savory selection of steaks includes the thinly sliced london broil served with buttermilk chive mashers ($12.99), while a half-pound burger furnishes protein patties with a pair of bread-mittens ($8.79). A heaping helping of grown up mac ‘n’ cheese ($9.99) foils ravenous fork-wielding toddlers by sealing smoked gouda, asparagus, sundried tomatoes, and penne pasta beneath a formidable parmesan crust. Stock up on greens with a Santa Fe barbecue chicken salad drizzled in a chipotle ranch dressing ($9.99/full, $7.99/half), or browse Chad's gluten-free menu for a wide selection of breadless options.
On average, it takes one year to invent a sandwich that meets the standards of Jason's Deli—countless combinations of breads and filling won't ever leave the test kitchen. Those that do follow a strict set of rules: no artificial trans fat, no high-fructose corn syrup, and flavors that come from freshness rather than additives. The results can be bitten into at hundreds of locations across America. At each, difficult choices abound between reubens and spicy-ranchero chicken wraps, or between a turkey club and a New Orleans-inspired muffaletta, spread with a family-recipe olive mix. Even those who don't want a sandwich still have to make tough decisions when they approach the salad bar brimming with organic fixings.
Despite the difficulties of selection, Jason's Deli prioritizes convenience. Its stores have organized a list of gluten-sensitive selections as well as healthy kids' meals, which come with sides of organic carrots or apples as opposed to other restaurants' deep-fried lard balls. The company also advocates for emotional health as fervently as it does nutrition—its Leadership Institute hosts workshops for employees on topics ranging from conflict resolution to finances to ethics.
