If you’re recovering from the weekend or just need to eat something that’s green-ish, Jugo is a healthy spot in town that we actually endorse. With plenty of smoothie and juice options, plus salads and snacks, you’ll feel like all those people who outrun you on the Town Lake trail. You can go back to things in taco form soon, but in the meantime this is a good place to get some nutrients on your lunch break. It’s open for breakfast too.
