Nitrates and phosphates have no place at Grilla Bites. As a former organic farmer, Fred Marken founded Grilla Bites to serve and support his community with natural foods from local farmers. Free of hormones, growth stimulants, and other additives, his cornerstone all-natural sandwiches include chicken breast smothered in chipotle aioli and turkey layered atop avocado and soy bacon. The soy bacon strips also top burgers, which come with four patty options: veggie, organic tempeh, natural beef, and local, grass-fed bison. Vegetarian- and vegan-friendly options abound, including curried tofu sandwiches, a salad bar rife with locally grown fixings, and cheese quesadillas. To wash down organic feasts, the staff serves up organic juices, smoothies, and coffees.
