Lunch can’t always be a luxurious, drawn out, enjoyable time. Sometimes in the working world you need to eat and you need to do it fast. If you’re on a lunch crunch and need to make sure you get some food in your tummy real fast, here are some of the best places in Grand Junction to snag a quick (and healthy) lunch.

City Market Deli

City Market always has a great selection of salads, wraps, sushi, and sandwiches. You can snag a quick bite, a canned iced tea or gatorade, and even snag something from the bakery for dessert. Or, you can grab yourself a protein bar or Naked juice. With the self checkout feature, you can be in and out in a matter of minutes. Boom, quick lunch solved.


Of all of the chain food restaurants, Subway has some of the quickest turnaround times. If you know what you want ahead of time, you can really speed up the process. There are Subways all over Grand Junction, so I’m sure there is at least one Subway close to your current location.

Costa Vida

Costa Vida is a super tasty and fast option for lunch in Grand Junction. The Grand Junction Costa Vida has some really fast turnaround times. My favorite part about Costa Vida, is that if you have the time to plan out a bit, they have a nutrition calculator on their website where you can plan out your meals there.

Del Taco

Del Taco is definitely fast food, but they have some pretty healthy options. Their grilled chicken tacos are definitely a healthy option, and they can bang them out pretty darn quick. This is one of my favorite “quick” lunch options in Grand Junction.

Cafe Rio

Cafe Rio has so many tasty options, and my favorite part is the Horchata, and Mint Limeade. The Pork Barbacoa Tostada is definitely one of my favorites. However, when I want to be even healthier I get the grilled chicken instead of pork. Cafe Rio is another great, speedy, and tasty option for a quick Grand Junction Lunch.

Either way, the more you plan the less stressful (and probably more healthy) your quick lunch in Grand Junction can be. These are just some of my favorite options, I’m sure there are plenty of great options in Grand Junction for a healthy, and fast lunch. Feel free to share some of your favorites in the comments!
