This is the best salad bar in the entire world! They have thought of everything and it is there waiting for you and fresh, besides. Between 2 and 5, seniors get a special deal that includes your beverage! They keep everything very full and clean! I love this place.

I am so happy I decided to stop by for lunch this week with my sister and her girls, ages 6 and 8, WOW - so much to choose from and so much more healthy as compared to many of the other "buffet" type places in the area !!! Everything was fresh, clean, and it was very easy to put... More

Don't eat here if you are looking for protein. There is none. Carbs & salads is what you'll find. Definitely overpriced for what you get even if it is a buffet.

My husband and I had a wedding to plan in under four months and everything was going smoothly until choosing what to have for food. My mouth dropped every time i spoke with a cater. The amount of money they wanted was insane for dry chicken and beef with gravy. No thank you. One my husband didn't like the food,... More

I first encountered Sweet Tomatoes when working in Southern California over 20 years ago. When they opened their first store in Chicago, I was happy to drive over an hour to get to it. The food is fresh and tasty with new offerings every time I go. Make certain to try the soup offerings and leave room for making your... More

Lots of fresh veggies on the salad bar and interesting options including soup, pasta, baked potatoes, and pizza bread. There is a lack of any type of meat on the salad bar, some grilled chicken or cubed ham would be perfect. The soft serve ice cream and fresh muffins & desserts are always good too.

My family visits probably once or twice a month. I love the 45 feet of salad options and unusual soups! My children (4 and 7) like picking out veggies and eat them before plowing into the endless mac-n-cheese. My husband loves the chili and blueberry muffins. It gets 4 stars because of a serious lack of reliable PROTEIN. There are... More

It's a buffet, but it's not the old style grandma's table type buffet. The opening line forces you through the enormous salad buffet. You can load up on most every conceivable green and salad topping, potato and pasta salads, etc. That's where I like to put my emphasis. But there are changing specials, and five daily soups. There is pizza,... More
