Roxberry Juice Co.

Growing up in California, I thought that smoothie joints were as common as gas stations.  Turns out once I moved out of that sunny state, I was in for a big surprise here in the Midwest.  Hardly. Any. Smoothie places!  Roxberry to the rescue! This place is nuzzled in the massive Summit Woods shopping center and it’s easy to miss.  So look for them and you will be glad you did.

Blendin’ it all Together

Taste: I’m gonna be real- I’m kind of a smoothie snob.  After being sorely disappointed with the likes of Smoothie King (not sure why people like that place) I was very happy with Roxberry.  They are the best I have been able to find in this area, not the best ever, but the best that you’ll find in these parts.

Presentation: Ok so, it’s just a smoothie in a cup so how amazing can it be? But they blend it all together well and present a wide variety of options.

Originality: Nothing really original about a smoothie stand but they do it very well.

Service: I have had mixed experiences here.  Their staff is a little young and at times, have taken a while to acknowledge that they need to take my order.  Other times, I have been in and out with my bev in less than 5 minutes.

Appearance: It’s a small place and hard to find, but they keep the inside cheerful and fun.  The kids love hanging out here.

Value: I can’t remember the prices and they aren’t listed on the Roxberry website but I remember them being around $5.  I have found the 16oz size to be plenty of smoothie for me.

Restrooms: n/a

Smoothies aren’t just a thing for the summer.  We all need to have healthy food  in all the seasons!  Let us know when you check them out!
