Tasty jerk, probably not the 'healthiest'.
I stopped in and tried some Jerk Fish, and it was authentic caribbean with rice & beans, plantains, and plenty of kick. Tasty, but loaded with sauce and I'm sure not the healthiest option.
Great service, and the owners were very friendly and stopped by the table to check on things.
Enjoyed listening to some boisterous locals who were clearly from the caribbean themselves based on the accents.
I was a bit put off though when I put my arms down on the table and had to peel them off the sticky surface. Not the cleanest of places, but perhaps that's part of the caribbean atmosphere ;-)

Good food, lousy service :-(
I was working at my companies Chandler campus, so I checked HappyCow for a nearby restaurant. I gave 24 Carrots a try, and sadly it will likely be my last visit. Overall, the food was good, but the service was unbeleivable lousy; it seems they are just way understaffed.
I ordered the Mediteranean with a water, which the water is self-service and was empty, so the clerk said he would refill it. 15 minutes later it was still empty, so I went to the counter and asked for a water.
There aren't too many tables in the place, so I grabbed one that was open. It was coated with some sticky mess, and none of the other tables looked much better, which makes me question the overall cleanliness of the place.
So, on the way out I decided to try a smoothie to go. I'm handed the smoothy in a cup and then informed they are out of straws, and maybe I could stop next door at Subway and get one. Seriously???
Anyone, the sandwhich was pretty good and the smoothy too, so it's a shame the customer experience is so lousy.

Tasty and Healthy Drive-thru in Tempe. Grab-n-go
Drove thru D'lish for the first time today, and I'm glad I did. I live out in Gilbert and love the Salad-n Go drive-thru at Gilbert/Guadelupe, and was looking for something similar by my work in Tempe.
I ordered the 'Humanitarian Wrap' with hummus and quinoa, and it was tasty. Next time I go back I'll give the Veggie D'lite a try.
If you're looking for a quick grab-n-go some healthy food, then this is your place. Located on the SW corner of Apache / Terrace (on Apache between Rural and McClintock).

Cute litte Deli in Tempe. Tasty food, daily menu.
Being a recent vegetarian, I'm always looking for new diggs to eat. I saw Desert Roots popup on HappyCow, and thought I'd give it a try. Overall, a cute little down-to-earth deli on Mill, with a small but tasty made-from-scratch menu which changes daily. No in-house seating, but there is a sizable outdoor seating area; there are cooling mist-ers, but in the summer you may want to just grab-n-go.
I had the Thai wrap with honey mustard potato salad, and I wasn't disappointed. The wrap was loaded with rice, beans, greens, and a touch of peanut sauce. The potato salad was not your run-of-the-mill either, with tasty bits of carrot and celery mixed in.
Since the website is still under construction, I was told to check them out on Facebook for the current menu: https://www.facebook.com/DesertRootsKitchen
Overall, a win for us vegetarians/vegans, with gluten and dairy free choices as well. Thumbs up!

Fast, healthy, and tasty!
Some tasty mediterranean grub, quick and easy. Walk in, choose a plate or pita, pick your fillings, and your done. In and out in 3 minutes, or there's a small seating area to dine-in. And a very nice spread of authentic mediterranean ingredients.

Tasty lunch buffet
I've been here a couple times now. It's close to the Autoplex, so I stop in when I'm bringing my car in for service.
Nice little lunch buffet with plenty of veggie options.

Good, but what's in it?
Eh, any place that doesn't disclose its ingredients makes me think they are hiding something.
Decent 'za and calzones, but I want to make sure I'm not eating yoga mats in the bread before I go back for more...

Delish! Italian ristorante serving up organic
I had the mi shu chicken and it was amazing. Lunch combo specials come with salad and a drink.
I came in on a Thursday lunchtime and the place was packed. There is outside seating which there was still plenty available.

Drive-thru healthy food. Love It! Salads/Wraps.
We're finally starting to see the emergence of 'healthy' fast food, a market that was tradionally monopolized by the McCrap food factories.
I've been to Salad and GO several times now, and love this place! The 'autumn harvest' wrap was amazing, and the 'santa fe' had enough kick that I've ordered it several times now. The Gardein chik'n is tasty too, and a nice addition to the sante fe. They also do NOT server the cancer inducing regimen of mainstream soda's, and instead have their own offering of healthy beverages such as real sugar cane colas, organic shakes, organic coffee and teas, and wellness drinks.
Now I've got Jason's Deli if I want a healthy sit down joint in Gilbert, and I've got Salad and GO when I want something quick and tasty on the run!

Great juices and smoothies, salad bar, and meals.
This is my lunch spot at least once a week. In the deli area they have a huge salad bar, a soup bar with 4-5 different seasonal soups, and hot dishes with delicious vegetarian choices like vegetarian lasagna, enchiladas, meatballs, samosas, and more. On the way out they have a fantastic juice bar where you can get fresh-squeezed fruit AND/OR veggie juices. Other than the carrot juice at Jamba, I haven't found another juice bar with fresh squeezed veggie blends like spinach, kale, cucumber, celery, etc...
The place is a vegetarian/vegan mecca, and a raw foodies dream!
