Fast-food review: Start on Greenville Avenue has healthy food, quick
The new restaurant on Greenville Avenue offers menu items to "start" getting healthy, even if you don't have time to stop and sit down.
DALLAS Are you sick of going through greasy fast food places?
Do you hate not knowing what exactly you are eating from a drive-thru?
How often do you wonder where your food is coming from and how it is prepared?
Would you love to have a quick spot to grab lunch without worrying whether or not it is nutritious?
Now, you are in luck.
Owner Erin McKool’s entire concept was to create a place that is “out of the box” where customers can get a healthy meal fast.
“There was not a restaurant doing this kind of food that is quick, natural, and organic,” McKool said.
“I really love food [and] love to entertain and cook. It has always been a dream of mine to own a restaurant,” she said.
What makes this place so special? It is homemade wholesome food that you can eat there or grab to go.
Serving everything from breakfast to desserts, all of the food that is offered is as clean as it comes.
All it takes is a quick glance at the menu or, even better, a look inside the kitchen to realize that Start only uses mostly organic and all healthy products.
According to McKool, all of the meals are “very, very clean with high quality ingredients.”
If you have a gluten allergy, this place may be your dream come true: A lot of the meals are gluten-free, with a large selection of gluten free items.
Another attraction about this place is that they offer wine and beer -- and even that's healthy. The wine comes from “vineyards using sustainable practices” and the beers are “Texas beers as well as gluten-free options,” McKool said.
As a student who is always on the go, Start would be an awesome go-to spot to grab a healthy meal.
Senior Christie Devine tried Start a couple of weeks ago. “I got the quinoa salad and loved it,” she said. “It is so nice to get a fresh and healthy salad when you are short on time.”
If you do not live near Greenville Avenue, don’t worry. This will not be the only Start.
McKool said that once they have established this one, they plan on expanding to other locations.
Breakfast is served until 11 a.m. and lunch and dinner is served until 9 p.m.
