Why go? Billing itself as the first USDA–certified organic fast-food restaurant in America, The Organic Coup is staging its revolution from a humble Pleasanton strip mall.

What’s the atmosphere like? The bright and airy dining room, with mostly communal tables, proclaims its mission on wall signs and logo T-shirts: “This Ain’t Old McDonald’s Farm” and “Organically Cocky.”

What to order? The limited menu offers fried Mary’s spicy organic air-chilled chicken breast served three ways: sandwiched in an artisanal bun; wrapped in a multigrain tortilla; or in a bowl atop shredded cabbage, carrot, and onion. Choose from four sauces: mustard vinaigrette, ranch, spicy BBQ ranch, or sesame ginger. (We loved the zip of the sesame ginger with the veggies.) Grab a bag of chocolate-striped caramel corn for later.

How much? All the chicken dishes are $8.99. Add $2 for organic fountain soda in familiar (cola, root beer) and not-so-familiar (coconut, lemongrass) flavors.

When is it open? Lunch and dinner Mon.–Sat.

Where is it? 4825 Hopyard Rd., Pleasanton, (925) 399-6719, theorganiccoup.com.
