Fresh Choice is a great choice

Melanie Gonzalez

Chicago is known as a city with great restaurants.  Every neighborhood has a wide selection of places to eat.  Old Town is no different.  However, if you're looking for a healthy lunch then Fresh Choice is a great choice for you.

I recently stopped in the restaurant located at 1534 North Wells Chicago, IL. 60610.  It is a convenient spot right next to the Old Town aquarium.  They have a huge selection of foods to choose from.  Even your pickiest friends will be able to find something they will want to try. 

They're most popular foods are their hot subs.  These come with the meat of your choice along with two types of cheese, pickles, brown mustard, mayonnaise, Italian seasoning, lettuce and tomatoes.  Trust me, they are delicious.

You can basically make your own sandwich with whatever ingredients you want.  There's even BBQ and teriyaki as options.

All of their food is fresh and tastes as such.  Their avocado sandwiches and pizza subs are two of their more unique items on the menu. 

Perhaps the best thing that I tried at Fresh Choice was the turkey chili.  My friend got the veggie chili and that was pretty good too.  Their soups and chilis are homemade and include a large variety.

I also got a glass of fresh squeezed orange juice.  I do not come across fresh squeezed orange juice in the city very often so I have to say I was extremely excited to try it.

It definitely lived up to my high expectations.  I also tried their fresh squeezed lemonade as well as their iced tea.  After the orange juice I had to try my luck, they were all delicious and just as they promised- fresh.

The restaurant was not busy the day I was there, but I was told that during regular lunch hours (noon to two) a line does develop.  However, service is pretty fast and the people who are serving you are both friendly and efficient.

The only things I haven't tried, but I want to as soon as the weather is warmer, are the smoothies and frozen yogurt.  One patron told me that they are the best smoothies in the city while her son drank one called a "king smoothie."

All in all, the place doesn't immediately grab your eye when you're walking by, but it proves to be a healthy, delicious and great place to grab lunch from in Old Town.
