Granny Feelgood's

|

Healthy (but not insane vegan) nuveau fast/casual but with a menu style eatery in Aventura.

What we had:

I had a grilled chicken sandwich with some sort of sweet but not heavy glaze, avocados, red pepper with a side of tortilla chips. It wasn't bad. I think it was called the Bahama Chicken Panini.


My DH had a chicken quesadilla. Although it had a lot of cheese like any quesadilla, this one at least wasn't greasy.


D├ęcor:

Modern-ish, nice, mild, safe.

Service:

Not bad. More attentive than usual at this type of place.

Overall impressions:

It was pretty good. My sandwich, while nothing special, was tasty and I didn't leave feeling bogged down with grease or 16 tons of meat, so that was nice. The menu here is rather large--they have the obligatory smooties, salads, wraps, paninis, burgers, etc. but also some pretty good looking entrees as well. Most items are health in disguise style--non-threatening dishes with small substitutions on the side of low fat/low sodium. They even have a raw foods salad, and a few vegan dishes. No bacon in sight (at least no pig bacon, they do have the turkey variety). I appreciate where they're going with the menu, but I do think it's a tad overpriced. I don't want to pay as much for a sandwich as an entree.

The main sandwich side is store-bught tortilla chips (non-greasy, of course) and for an extra $2.50 you can get sweet potato fries. On top of your $10 sandwich. I would like to see the sandwiches go down a buck or so, and the side-switching price be dropped to $1.00 on the outside, then this place won't feel like quite so much of a gyp.


The company website is a creepy franchise information only page that says something about another location being closed; what Google says
