I frequently get smoothies from here and I would say they are the best! All the employees are very knowledgeable and will answer any questions you have. I would highly recommend them!

The folks at Smoothie King are the most helpful smoothie makers I have ever encountered. They are always more than willing to recommend a flavor, and explain what goes in to their smoothies! They make a positive effort to use ingredients that are pure and good for you! A great place to get a great smoothie!

its a little too creamy and powderyish for me but it depends who makes it!

Gmar85, one of the things unique to Smoothie King is majority of our smoothies are thick, rich and creamy. I do not know about the powderyish part as SK has spent years of reasearch before any of our smoothies come out. Did you get one of the protein smoothies? Also, as we are a franchise the smoothies should be same if you go here or if you go clear across to New York. I shall look into this and make sure we as a staff are all on the same page. We invite your comments and look forward to coming back.
The only reason I still go to jamba juice is because it's closer to where I live and work. They don't have yogurt as a filler so you dont get that unpleasant plain yogurt taste when you get down to the bottom of the cup. I ususally have have one of these as a meal and it keeps me satisfied. Wish they would expand a bit more in San Diego.

This is the first smoothie store I've really liked. The staff are very knowledgeable about the smoothies they carry, as well as the vitamins and supplements. They carry a good variety of smoothies and many carry exotic ingredients. I can go in, and tell the guys what i'm looking for (preworkout, postworkout, something fruity, locarb, etc..) and they'll tailor a smoothie to my liking. This is my favorite place in downtown for a quick, healthy drink.

Thank you for your comments. We pride ourselves in our staff and of course in what we sell. As you already know, what sets us apart from the "other guys" is our ability to tailor any smoothie to your specific dietary needs: whether you need energy, trim down, build up or just to stay healthy we have a wide variety of smoothies.
I've tried this place as my friends and I just passed by the neighborhood yesterday. It tasted too much of a coconut ice-cream (? - which I am alergic to such ingredients) and powder because when we did not finish the whole cup, the smoothie portion was still completely blending well... I am done a lot of smoothies at home during summer time, if it was using real fruits, the water part would be sinked down at the bottom and the blend fruit part would be floated on top of the cup...

Hello SDFoodCritic, thank you for your comments. First, I would like to know what smoothie you tried as we do not have any smoothies that have coconut and ice cream together. All of our ingredients our listed on our menu board so guests can know if there is something in their smoothie that they might be allergic too, best thing always is to ask the Team Member. I did not get whether you were trying to say your smoothie was not blended correctly yesterday. I can assure you that many years of research go into each smoothie before it goes onto our menu board. We are known as having thick, rich, and creamy smoothies. Our research team makes sure of that. I invite you back into our store; you can get a FREE 20oz smoothie at www.smoothieking.com/beactive.
I have always gone to Jamba Juice . An employee of mine introduced me to Smoothie King and how much more nutritious it was , They are Great ! The staff is informative with all thier drinks.
