Having an extremely stressful job working 24/7 and travelling worldwide I ended up with blockages in my heart that needed surgery. In preparation for my impending Heart Surgery, I started a strict regimen of daily cardio workout biking combined with high intake of anti-oxidants for weight reduction and immunity system boosting. The ALL FRUIT 24 Oz Acai Energizer was part of my daily 5 meal plan along with lots of water for 6 weeks before the operation. It was the healthiest and energy boosting smoothie I have ever had anywhere and combined with my workout routine I was in incredible shape for the operation. The operation was successful and I received a 100% recovery evaluation by my cardiologist two weeks later! I can continue to bike 24 to 45 miles in a day and strength train. What was really funny was that since I could not drive there for a few weeks (prohibited by my doctors), I walked from my home to the store in Promenade Park in the heat to have my favorite smoothie. Bob, the owner and the entire staff, were always friendly and professional to me as I was one of the regulars. I had become good friends with Bob by this time and then one day in the afternoon I revealed to Bob that I had Heart Surgery a few weeks ago. Bob’s reaction was of shock and utter disbelief. He said that it was simply impossible to make out if I had Heart surgery as I am in such good shape. LOL! Now, a few months later, I still have my favorite smoothie very day and it is an essential part of the day. Everyone reading this should realize our health is our wealthiest asset … it is given to us for free. It is our responsibility to treat it well and preserve it for the marathon of life. Along that way … supplementing with Acai Energizer is the best thing you can do for yourself! One more point – Bob’s store has to be the cleanest food store I have ever been too anywhere. It’s a constant 99.5 to 100 rating by the health inspector too. Thanks Bob for providing a great health food establishment!!

It's hard for a health freak like me to find a nice healthy place to eat in Charlotte. But I found Robeks to be the perfect place for me! All the smoothies Ive had (especially the Acai blends are my favorite), frozen yogurt and their other treats always seem to be worth the money expense when you know how long these things will keep your stomach content and save you from snaking throughout the day. I bring many friends to try Robeks and they have always been very satisfied, whether they like to eat healthy or not. Some even say there "addicted" now! The employees are always nice and fun to talk too, plus you might even get a few free samples! The store itself is always clean no matter what time of day, and if you sit down and enjoy your smoothie, frozen yogurt, juice, cookie, etc. in the store the giant plasma screen TV always has allot of interesting facts to keep you entertained whether your with friends or by yourself. 5 stars! I dont think I will ever be content eating at a different smoothie joint ever again!
I'm a personal chef, and I skipped breakfast this morning. Bob knew exactly what I needed when I asked for a suggestion for a meal replacement. My smoothie, made with the Acai "wonderberries" was awesome. It was delicious and very satisfying, yet I wasn't stuffed. It held me very evenly until mid afternoon. I didn't feel all jacked-up on sugar and then crash later. I found myself back in their neighborhood mid afternoon, so I swung by for a little afternoon "pick me up". It was just as clean as it was first thing in the morning. Since I had to do a lot of tasting at work, I got a shot of wheat grass juice to make sure I was getting a good balance in my diet. I noticed that they even have orange juice chasers for the less brave. I like the stuff. I hate to sound all artsy, but it feels like drinking...life. The not only have great smoothies, but they have my fruit/veggie juices that I like so much. It's great to have a smoothie bar that carries a wide variety of the good for you stuff. See you there!
I started going to Robek's juice regulary for the last 5 months after the birth of my son. My favorite drink is the ACAI energizer and I would drink this every day to help lose the "baby bulge" and to get back into shape (plus, I combined good nutrition with exercise). After 2 months I was back to my pre-pregnancy weight and at 6 months I am a size smaller (size 8 to a size 6) than I was before I was pregnant! The owners are SUPER nice and informative. Now that I am back at work I go every weekend and get an organic wheat grass shot (you feel so energized after drinking this shot!) and I chase it down with my Acai energizer drink. I bought a bottle of their GREEN TEA (I use the atioxidant blend) that I drink a 1 oz. shot every morning before work. All the drinks and foods are super healthy and my 6 year old daughter loves to order the triple berry yogurt! Everyone who needs a "jump start" in making changes to their diet needs to go to ROBEK'S JUICE!
Robeks is the best smoothie place in the Queen City. I have always been very skeptical of smoothie places, since most are just full of sugary candy like smoothies with no real nutrition. Then I found Robeks and it is the real deal!!! Their stuff is made with just real natural fresh fruit, none of that frozen in simple syrup stuff. You know you are doing something good for your body when you go in there. My fav is a wheat grass shot & acai bowl (natural acai sorbet topped with sliced bananas & their homemade granola) this makes a great breakfast or just an afternoon snack, but everything eles is delish too!! Not only are the products great, but the customer service is exceptional!!! Everytime I go in they great me by name and always know what I want. They are always smiling, very freindly, and knowledgeable. I recomend this place to everyone who is looking for something good for their bodys or even just for their taste buds!!!
I'm from the west coast when it's hot and dry depends on the weather their times when you just want a nice cold drink or maybe a healthy smoothie with really fresh fruits. I'am really suprised that it's located here in the east enjoying a little of the west life style. All I can say is Robeks is the place! Try it and you will love it. The owner there is tremendous helpful and knowledgeable about the product selections and supplements just like having your own personal nutritionist. My top choice always the acai energizer make that large to go. Now a regular customer. The owner knows who I'am(Cali boy)
If you haven't been to Robek's in Promenade Shopping Center then you have no idea what you are missing! Robek's is a staple for me. I love the fact that I am putting something healthy in my body, it's affordable and I am supporting one of our local Charlotte area businesses! Every time I goto Robek's, they know me by name and I typically order the same smoothie, The Acai Energizer! The service is GREAT and one of the Owner's, Bob, always is getting me to try something new! I can always find parking and am NEVER disappointed by the service or quality of product!
Robek's is located in the Promenade (Ballantyne Commons Pkwy and Providence Road) near Wolfgang Puck's and serves the best quality smoothies, juices etc. The quality of the ingredients and the focus on health make this a great alternative. They serve it quickly and have a nice atmosphere. I have gone about 5-6 times and choose a different drink each time and have always come away happy. They also have other food items and I am sure they are equally as good, but for a great smoothie with great ingredients and options, this is a winner.
While all smoothies are supposed to be made from fruit and other natural ingredients, not all smoothies are created equal!! Robeks' are the only smoothies we have found that are 100% natural and simply delicious! So much so that my kids would easily opt for a smoothie over ice cream! (My kids are 4 and 6- so that is huge!) The clean store and friendly owners/employees are just an added bonus! Thanks guys for making the best smoothies around and making the entire Robeks experience so enjoyable! :-)
during the summer and when ever its hot, i basicly live off robeks. it is very refreshing on a hot summer day. their smoothies taste great too. all the workers are very friendly too. whenever i go there i always ended up joking around with the manger and we're always cracking jokes. the smoothies taste great and are great for you. they also have power cookies which are equally as good. so next time you're in south charlotte i highly recommend stopping by robeks to try a smoothie.
