It’s been a long summer of renovations for Nicole Tufts and Sonia Gillies-da Mota but they’re finally ready to debut their farm-to-table fast-food joint, Riot Snack Bar.

This weekend the restaurant will open at a barely recognizable 6293 Quinpool Road (the former Garden of Eat’n, which has undergone some major TLC) serving up quick but healthy meals and craft beer via casual counter service. Tufts is turning the traditional, greasy snack bar menu on its head, with a focus on fresh, local and organic ingredients in every dish—from burgers, to wings to hot boxes and salads— as well as vegan-friendly options aplenty.

Peep the menu, complete with pictures, here.
