Chicken Caesar Salad

Who doesn’t love this classic, refreshing salad? In our take on this zesty dish, our team combines romaine and iceberg lettuce to provide that fresh crunch you’re craving, then we top it with tender grilled chicken, Parmesan cheese, and Caesar dressing. For added protein and heartiness, we also top the salad with a hard-boiled egg.

Cobb Chicken Salad

If you’ve got a hankering for a salad that delivers the perfect combination of fresh lettuce and vegetables, rich cheese, and hearty bacon and chicken, our Cobb Chicken Salad is right up your alley. Topped with a hard-boiled egg and your choice of dressing, you can’t go wrong with this dish. Try it with our homemade Stella® Blue Cheese dressing!

Wedge Salad

On a hot summer day, nothing is more refreshing than a nice crisp wedge salad. This simple, delicious salad comes topped with crumbled blue cheese and bacon on top and is served with our famous Stella Blue Cheese dressing. Not a fan of blue cheese? No problem! Choose from one of our other salad dressings.

Grilled or Blackened Chicken Salad

Craving a classic salad complete with chicken and vegetables? This salad leads the pack with its combination of iceberg and romaine lettuce, plum tomatoes, sweet red onions, and shredded Swiss cheese. Order it to your specifications with either grilled or blackened chicken breast and the salad dressing of your choice!

Pair Your Salad with a Drink!

While you’re relaxing out on our covered patio, why not pair your salad with a light and hoppy beer or other refreshing drink prepared fresh by our expert bartenders? With more than 15 craft beers, we’re sure to have the perfect drink to complement your meal. Not sure what might go best with your meal? Ask your server for drink recommendations the next time you stop in!

In addition to these four satisfying salads, we also offer a great dinner salad. If you’re looking for a lighter bite to eat, or something to have before you enjoy some of our delicious buffalo wings, ribs, or a burger, our dinner salad might be just what you’re looking for. With daily drink and dinner specials and online ordering, there’s something for everyone at Crossroads.
