The Fazoli's menu is filled with carb heavy options, as well as some healthier choices. We've rounded up the best and worst menu items to choose from, whether you're a regular or a first time visitor.
The Best Fazoli's Menu Items
1.Primo Submarino: Turkey Club Classico
This is definitely the healthiest of the sub choices, but packs a lot of sodium. We suggest splitting the sandwich and ordering a house side salad.
2. Spicy Italian Breadstick Slider
Fazoli's is known for their delicious and pillow-y breadsticks. These are fewer in calories than the original and pack a lot of protein into a small bite.
3. Baked Lasagna
Lasagna isn't often thought as synonymous with health. However, this lasagna packs a ton of fiber, making it a better choice than some of the other pastas.
The Worst Fazoli's Menu Items
4. Ultimate Fettuccine Alfredo
Arguably the worst, and possibly most delicious entree is the Ultimate fettuccine alfredo. Loaded with chicken, bacon, parmesan, broccoli, and mushrooms, it packs a punch with flavor and with calories.
5. Pepperoni Pizza Double Slice
What makes this dish unique is that it's actually 2 slices of pizza stacked on top of one another. It's topped with pizza sauce, mozzarella, and provolone cheese.
6. New York Style Cheesecake With Strawberry
This cheesecake has more sugar than an entire can of soda. It is delicious, so if you really can't resist, we suggest sharing with a friend.
