Always good. Always consistent. Just don't go when everyone else goes to the place! It can get very crowded at peak times.

The food here is not the problem. The seating is the problem. Simply put, the restaurant is 50% too small. On a weekend, you can wait 20-30 minutes for a table, AFTER you already made your salad. So, you are left standing at the cafeteria line, while people all around you are already eating their meals standing next to you.... More

Your typical Soup Plantation place. Didn't have cucumbers for some reason, mac and cheese was a little old. Everything else was very good including the pizza bread.

We stopped here for lunch and were familiar with the format. This was almost identical to a Florida chain called Sweet Tomatoes, but I liked this location better than the one I went to in south FL. (I since learned that they are the same company.) The price of about $10 for lunch and $12 for dinner included unlimited salads,... More

This was surprisingly a bit below even our expectations for "Not bad".. The food was generally fresh, but the staff didn't quite keep up with the messy Customers. Customers were rather "colorful", but the meal IS quick and, if you choose well, healthy.

It's a great buffet, with multiple types of lettuce and just about everything imaginable to put on your salad. There's also freshly made soups, garlic/Italian breads and desserts. They will help seat you if you have a large group or handicapped people with you, which is nice and not really expected with a buffet restaurant. The salad is fresh and... More

This unusual restaurant specializes in an unlimited salad and soup bar. There are about 4 dozen selections on the very fresh salad bar and about 8 soups. These are supplemented by baked potatoes and rice and a variety of breads and muffins as well as a few desserts like fat free chocolate mousse, soft serve ice cream, and others. You... More

As you walk into this restaurant you grab a tray and head down one of two lines with an abundant selection of fresh veggies and fruit along with plenty of greens. There are some pre-made salads as well, but usually by this point your plate is full. There's also an area for breads as well as one for soups. We... More

We went on a Saturday night around 8 pm and the line at the salad bar was about half an hour. This place is fun-there is so much food to try. The salad bar has a wide variety of veggies to choose from. The soups are all delicious. One trick for meat lovers is to take the chicken from the... More
