Attention drive-thru window junkies: A healthier new option is landing on Lemmon Avenue near Oak Lawn. The second location of Start opens Wednesday with fast-casual options like organic breakfast sandwiches, salads with housemade dressings, grass-fed burgers, stuffed sweet potatoes, housemade hummus, and plenty of kid-friendly options like baked "chicken bites." There's also fresh-squeezed juices and smoothies, as well as beer and wine for the adults.

Owner Erin McKool debuted the first Start on upper Greenville Avenue back in 2012; this second outpost will largely mirror the first with a few notable additions including "roomier parking," "a dedicated exit lane for drive-through traffic," and a new menu item that toes the line between healthy and indulgent: sweet potato cinnamon rolls.

Start will be open daily from 7 a.m.-9 p.m. Scope out the full menu below:
