Awesome produce selection! There was a huge sale going on, so prices of some items were more affordable.

Actually the whole thing was a bit too nice to be true. Everyone I bumped into said hi and smiled. Food was colourful and pretty. I particularly like the juice bar at the entrance and the sit down area at the exit. If you like food shopping you'll love this supermarket. No wonder they've expanded this concept into all kinds...

This Whole Food is amazing! They have about 4 restaurants inside, where you can eat very tasteful dishes. I had a Risotto in the Bistro at dinner and really enjoyed.

Whole Foods is awesome wherever you are. But the best thing about them is each place sources locally. This whole foods has that Texas flavour to it and you can tell in the prepared food section. Thats on of the best things about whole foods. Funny though, people stand in the middle of aisle in Whole Foods in Texas too,... More

I would love to have this supermarket back home in Brisbane. This is a large and full line supermarket with thousands of healthy or organic food lines to choose from. There are lots of non-food options as well such as natural beauty products. I wasn't there to do my grocery shopping so the bit I liked the most was the... More

Good place to go for really good food at a wonderful price. My wife and I were visiting Austin. After a long walk on Town Lake we decided to have dinner at Whole Foods – yes Whole Foods on Lamar. We ate at the fish bar. Service was slow, but I think the servers were new. Fish was cooked to... More

They do not call it Whole paycheck for nothing, but even WF is bowing to competition somewhat and lowering some prices on standard items. I like the take out section when I dont want to sit in a restaurant. Overall the quality of food at WF is good, one star off for prices and propylene glocol in the cheese I... More

There is BBQ, sushi, breakfast, drinks, wines, salads and prepackaged items for sale. We had BBQ brisket and coleslaw which was very good. You can order the brisket lean too. The place was very crowded but the lines moved quickly. Employees here were very helpful and very pleasant too. Have fun, eat, shop and enjoy!
