This past week I wanted a salad for lunch and after listing off a dozen places - my coworker chose the Squirrel just off 4th & Walnut. I know their specialty is double deckers but I seemed to remember salads on the menu as well - so why not?! (They also have Empress Chili.)
The Cobb Salad was really good - the chicken was tender and not dry, the bacon crispy and the ranch homemade. While it was homemade - it wasn't really thick like I like it - but still good. I think the salad was a little small - but for under $7 - full of toppings. It's one of those things - I think we've been programmed to expect BIG - but really this was the perfect amount for lunch and any more would have left me too full.
Why Should You Go? The rating on Urbanspoon isn't that great - but I have never had anything but quality food, served quickly by a friendly face. I like the Squirrel and will definitely go back! Next time - I might have to cave and get that chicken salad double decker. Also - if you're one that works downtown - they deliver over $30 - so think of them for your next working lunch!
