Each time I enter WF it's my trip to Schlaraffenland. Get inspired, pulled away and drawn into the world of culinary delight, taste butts heaven and flavor galore. You name it they have it or can get it for you. The service is impecable. Love-love-love you.

Too crowded - lots of people to navigate - lots of choices which can be good or bad. I'm glad people love whole foods, and as a grocery store it's top notch - as a restaurant it is not.

Whole foods breakfast tacos used to be a Saturday morning ritual for our family. It was so easy, you stood at the bar, told the person what you wanted, they made it in front of you wrapped it up and put a price on it. You paid for it and ate it and it tasted great. The new process is... More

The entire staff is well informed on products and offer advice as to direction one could pursue to help remedy a concern. I recommend trying their onsite food as well. Everything is freshly prepared and delicious. They also have a juicing station that can give you a... More

I will be honest, I do a lot of my major shopping at HEB, but when it comes to meat, fish and specialty cheese, Whole Foods is my spot. I am never let down by the quality of their steaks, and fish. The sausages, made in house, are fantastic and always make my Italian gravy taste better. Never met a... More

My kids are picky eaters. I know that Whole Foods will have something hot and ready that we can eat. Stopped yesterday at this location while sightseeing in downtown Austin. Kids needed dinner. Rotisserie chicken, mac & cheese, and broccoli was easy to find and a yummy, familiar meal. Beautiful store with many cool features. Great place to sit and... More
