Chicken Caesar Review: The Loop

The Loop Pizza Grill is a very popular chain here in the southeast and is best known in Jacksonville for their cheeseburgers. Today we'll be looking at their Classic Chicken Caesar, which costs $7.49 and is made up of romaine lettuce, Parmesan cheese, grilled chicken strips and croutons tossed in their classic Caesar dressing. 
The lettuce was a healthy green and plentiful. It was coated with a standard Caesar dressing that must have overpowered any Parmesan cheese as I don't recall tasting any. The chicken was decent tasting grilled strips, though many pieces were quite chewy. Finally, the croutons were of the cut-up garlic toast variety and were delicious. They had a buttery taste that lingered after you swallowed. They weren't stingy with these croutons, either, and they were easily the best part of the salad.
In the end, The Loop gives you a nice big salad with top-of-the-line croutons, but they need to work on their chicken a little bit.
