The menu at Noodles & Company restaurants is divided into three major sections – Asian, Mediterranean and American. The menu also offers several appetizers, such as potstickers, flat bread (pita bread), and ciabatta rolls. Customers are also offered an array of domestic and imported beer, as well as several different kinds of wine.

Dishes can be ordered in one of three varieties. Customers can either opt for a small size, a regular size, or a Trio. A Trio consists of a small-sized portion of either pasta, soup, or salad, topped with chicken, beef, shrimp, or tofu, and served with a side salad or side of soup.
