Protein Bar

Protein Bar has recently exploded in Chicago and I couldn't be happier about it! Each dish is packed with protein while providing the right amounts of carbs, fats, and calories.  Plus, they incorporate quinoa!  Reach for a Protein Bar-rito instead of a Chipotle burrito and your body will thank you later.  Be prepared to wait during lunch hour or pre-order your meal online and have it ready for pick up.
