Reaction to Noodle and Co. Spaghetti and Meatballs

In this case, I think the picture sums it up nicely.  Marv’s reaction is “Where is the rest of it?”  He also felt the decor was more like a school cafeteria than a restaurant and overall it is more of cafeteria as just like at Subway, you can select options from a menu board, go up to the counter and order it and then like Fazoli’s, they give you number and you take it your table and they bring it out when it is ready.

I had a buy one Noodle bowl – get one free coupon and we had never been to Noodle and Company before so decided to try it out.  Before going I read off some of the noodle bowl options from their site and he winced until I mentioned Spaghetti and Meatballs and he liked that idea.

While the concept is inviting with fresh, organic ingredients and ethically sourced meats, in the end, it comes down to taste and value and for $8.75 for a half bowl of spaghetti and meatballs with bland sauce and meatball that are a little rubbery and look and taste like they have been frozen it is was disappointing.  Also, no garlic bread or breadsticks.

We decided this is really more of a place for hipster millennials as it is the direction that restaurants seem to be going with a more minimalistic approach and putting portions in large serving ware with a lot of white space.  Guess they think it makes portions look larger, but to us it makes portions seem smaller.
