I wouldn’t normally pick a franchised restaurant as one of my favorites but Pokeworks does it right. If you’re a fan of sushi, or specifically poke bowls, this place is absolutely worth checking out.
When you walk in you’ll notice the layout and ordering process mimics Chipotle. They have a menu of poke bowls that you can choose from or you can build your own. You can choose between a poke bowl, a poke salad, or a sushi burrito. Then you pick your fish or if you don’t want seafood they also have chicken and tofu. They have a lot of great toppings to choose from such as corn, cucumber, jalapeno, cilantro, ogo seaweed, rice puffs, garlic crisps, shiso leaf, etc. There are quite a few different sauces to choose from as well.
One of the most important aspects of sushi is the fish and from my experience their varieties have always tasted fresh. The staff is friendly and the dining room and kitchen are always very clean.
I can’t speak for the entire franchise but the location in Town Center in Peachtree Corners does it right! Highly recommend!
What I usually order: Poke Bowl with Spicy Tuna & Salmon with a ton of toppings (many of which are mentioned above) and a medium amount of Ponzu Sauce. They also have a great selection of organic juice drinks and I often go with the Orange & Cardamom.
What you should know: Parking can be a pain on the weekends. One loaded poke bowl with a drink runs about $16.
