I think it’s apparent that we have a deep love for HEB. I believe that the company makes quality items, especially their chef prepared and Central Market items. Unfortunately, the widest selection of these items is about 45 minutes away from my home. Thankfully when I drive to Austin Community College, I cross paths with the HEB in Bee Caves. I try to plan my shopping trips after school at this HEB and occasionally stop by for some sushi for lunch.
The other day I decided to be adventurous and try this HEB’s Cafe on the Run. I’ve passed by it many times, only giving quick glances as I continued on with my shopping. I figured what they had was good since I am already a pretty big fan of HEB and Central Market brand goods.
The crazy Texas weather was almost freezing when I stopped by, so I wanted something filling, but with good ingredients. As I looked around the varied selection, my eyes kept coming back to the chicken pesto wrap. It was absolutely huge, which is great for those of us wanting to get the best bang for our buck. I had time to kill between my classes, so I decided to dine at Cafe on the Run.
The area was mostly clean, but it could have used a bit more elbow grease. I don’t know when the cleaning hours are for that area, but they could have done a better job cleaning the tables since mine had dried food stuck to it. I ordered a fountain drink and the lemonade was pure water, which was disappointing. This knocked my opinion down a bit and will most likely leave me buying a drink from another source since I rarely drink soda. Otherwise, the Cafe workers were nice and weren’t overbearing while I was deciding what to order.
The chicken pesto wrap came with lettuce, tomatoes, shredded mozzarella, pesto, and chicken. I heated the wrap up a little in the microwave and it absolutely rocked. The veggies tasted fresh and the wrap was very filling. You could easily share this wrap with someone else. It may look small in the box, but believe me, it was enough food to fill me up.
