My husband is a man who enjoys his McDs, I asked him to try Noodles just once, well he is hooked.Great food, nice environment and quick without being fast food. We love it!

Not my first choice. Staff is somewhat slow so be weary if you are in a rush. I ordered the pad Thai with shrimp and it tasted wonderful!

Noodles offers a nice chance from a fast food burger place. The food here is decent for fast food. There is a nice variety and choices for us all. It was clean when we visited and food arrived quickly.

We have dined here several times, it's average franchise food and the employees are college students that turn over every semester. On this particular evening meal we had the Idonesian Peanut and the Pad Thai both with Chicken. Both entrees were good, but not authentic from an Asian restaurant. They do have several gluten free items which my girlfriend appreciates.

The new buff bowls are a delicious way to get your vegies in. They are full of flavor and you'll never miss the noodles or the carbs!

Another great location on ISU's campus with quality noodle cuisines and the like. My personal favorite is the House Marinara with Beef.

I ordered the pad Thai and my hubby ordered the Mac and cheese. Both dishes were disappointing. My pad Thai was not very good I tried to eat it but only could choke down a few bites so I thought I'd eat my hubby Mac and cheese and that wasn't very good either so I probably won't be going here...

Noodles serves a wide variety of pasta dishes from Italian spaghetti to pad thai with rice noodles. Lots of options including soup. Mac & cheese is popular. We recently took a large group of people here and everyone found something that they liked. This Noodles franchise is directly across the street from Illinois State University so there's always a mix... More

Average atmosphere, average food, and bad service add up to an average place and probably not worth the trip when Avanti's is a block away. Their noodles tend to be over-cooked and pasty.
