St. Charles welcomes Muscle Maker Grill
Muscle Maker Grill, a health-conscious restaurant, recently opened in downtown St. Charles with lifelong resident Jose Venegas and Jeff Cade at the helm. Catering to active lifestyles, the restaurant's menu boasts many lean, protein-based options. For instance, the Mona Lisa comes with grilled chicken breast, reduced-fat cheddar cheese, romaine, tomatoes and onions with a low-carb signature sauce in a whole wheat wrap; it weighs in at less than 400 calories and costs $5.99. Or, try the Godfather, a grilled chicken breast, portabella mushrooms, red roasted peppers, reduced fat mozzarella and a gluten- and fat-free balsamic vinaigrette for $9.99.
Muscle Maker Grill is at 1840 W. Main St., St. Charles. facebook.com/mmgstcharles.
