Noodles on Evans hopes to dish up dinners by month’s end

Colorado’s 38th Noodles & Company restaurant hopes to open Sept. 25 at the former Blockbuster video store at 1737 E. Evans Ave.

The opening is part of an expansion for the Broomfield-based company, which has more than 200 stores nationwide. The restaurant near DU will be on the northwest corner of Williams Street and Evans Avenue. It will include a 16-seat outdoor patio of chairs and umbrellas in addition to interior dining.

Menu items will be similar to those in the chain’s other stores, which offer Asian, American and Mediterranean-style dishes for about $6 or $7. The restaurant has applied for permission to sell wine, beer and liquor; a decision on the application is expected this week. The location will provide free WiFi, according to a company spokeswoman.

The opening, which could be delayed depending on the pace of renovations already under way, will be one of two new additions to the Evans-Williams dining scene. Illegal Pete’s, which is on the intersection’s southwest corner, plans to open early in October, giving restaurant-goers two new options for meals in the fall.

“We’re really excited about expanding in our home state of Colorado and near the DU campus,” says president, chairman and CEO Kevin Reddy, whose daughter is a student at DU. “It’s a great location.”
