Noodles and Company

Surprisingly, Noodles and Company (“Noodles”) offers a variety of paleo and/or low carb options, including zoodles (zucchini noodles)! You can substitute them (or gluten-free pasta if preferred) in almost any dish. You can also add your choice of proteins – even shrimp. See menu for other options. The nutrition calculator on their website even has paleo and keto checkboxes. Delivery is available in many locations.

Chipotle

Considering that it’s basically a burrito place, Chipotle gets major props for trying to do things right! To start with, the web site lists paleo options by name. They use mostly simple, natural ingredients that you would expect, many of them natural and organic. Most locations offer grass-fed beef. They enforce minimum standards for animals and prominently disclose any exceptions. They cook mostly with rice bran oil and sunflower oil – not perfectly paleo, but in my opinion much better than the soy and canola found elsewhere. They’re very close to completely eliminating GMO ingredients too.

You can design your own naked burrito bowl (or salad), and unlike some competitors most of the options contain only the ingredients you’d expect. Meat choices include steak, chicken, carnitas, and barbacoa. See menu on web site for more details. Catering available. Some locations deliver.

That BBQ Joint

You choose how much (if any) sauce you want on your meat. Excellent collard greens. They do have sweet potato fries and fried okra, but I’m pretty sure they’re fried in oil that’s shared with gluten products. Both kinds of cole slaw. Unsweet tea available.

Willy Street Co-op Deli

All locations have grass-fed roast beef and pastured ham among the sliced deli meat options, and the Middleton store even has grass-fed hamburgers. Any sandwich can be customized, and lettuce-wrapped on request. Produce is often local and/or organic when possible. Great salad bar & hot bar. Check web site for daily specials: The grain-free chicken curry is excellent, as is the grain-free jambalaya. The seasoned meats on Taco Tuesday are good on lettuce, but even better on the roasted sweet potatoes. Breakfast is served in the morning, featuring local pastured meats and eggs. House-made bone broth from the meat case is occasionally found in the hot soup well. Paleo Mama desserts are available. Full service juice and coffee bar stocks house-made almond milk. As long as you’re there, check out the 90% organic produce dept, mostly local meat dept, and good selection of paleo staples. Indoor and outdoor seating.  Paleo catering available.
