With two locations and more on the way, SkinnyFats has the formula to expand to even greater heights — healthy and not-so-healthy versions of classics plus some creative dishes thrown into the mix in a fast-casual, affordable, hip setting.
The larger interior is a welcomed change from their first location and I’m a big fan of their outdoor patio when the weather is nice. After many visits to both locations, the food may not seem as innovative as it once was, but it’s still some of the best for a fast meal.
The sweet cheese us ($12) is always overflowing with shaved NY strip, peppers, onions and mushrooms. It’s one of my favorite steak and cheese sandwiches when I need a fix. For something healthier, the skinny Q flatbread ($7) was decent with it’s crispy crust and moderate amount of grilled chicken, cheddar and red onions covered with an agave BBQ sauce.
They’ve got a kid’s menu too, but my son prefers a side of grilled chicken ($4) over their chicken tenders. Their chocolate chip cookies are pretty good. Served warm, the edges were slightly crispy, with a chewy and moist interior.
This location always seems to be busy during peak hours so it’s best to hit it up at other times. Still, for a quick meal there are few places that are better.
