Located conveniently across from the mall, Noodles is always busy. During lunch time and especially on the weekends, it can be overbearingly busy. This small chain has exploded in the Madison area, and for good reason - their food is well-priced, tasty, and the generous portions ensure you'll be full. During the last renovation at this location, they changed the booths from regular booths to these strange out-facing booths that seem to take up more space and seat fewer people. Wish they would change it back!
