Being a full time student and part time employee is really tough schedule-wise. Especially the days when i have class until 3:30 then have to be at work by 5. And with my dining hall being closed from 4 to 5, its really hard for me to grab dinner before work, and I cant always cook. So I went on the hunt for any fast food place that had healthy options, and I found my new, all time favorite food joint. It’s called Start: Real Food Fast, and they’re dedicated to reinventing drive-thru fast food to be made from scratch using clean ingredients.
After learning about their from scratch cooking and clean, fresh ingredients, I was expecting to spend a lot more than fast food would be worth, I was expecting restaurant prices. However, their prices are pretty reasonable. You can get a full meal for less than 10 dollars, which is much less than if you were to pick up the same healthy fast food from a Whole Foods or Central Market. The price definitely isn’t bad for the great ingredients and laborious cooking they offer. And since it’s drive through, you don’t even have to leave your car. It’s the easiest, most convenient, guilt free meal you can get. So far I’ve tried their Turkey and Raspberry Chipotle Wrap and their Quinoa Salad, both of which were some of the most delicious things I’ve ever tasted. This definitely wasn’t what I expected from a fast food joint. The food was restaurant quality with more convenience and a decent, affordable price. To see more of their delicious, healthy food options, you can check out their menu here.
And if my word isn’t enough, Start has been featured in numerous articles by well known companies, blogs, and magazines, like D Magazine, Eater, and the Dallas Observer, all of which you can read here. So if you’re short on time and looking for an affordable, drive-thru, healthy, delicious meal, go to Start: Real Food Fast located on Greenville and University. It’s restaurant quality food at fast food speed. And it’ll be the best fast food you ever eat.
