If you are trying to eat a healthy salad then go here. They have a buffet style setting, salad bar, 8 different soups, 2-3 kinds of cheesy bread, blueberry corn muffins and brownie muffins, baked potatoes and a ice cream machine.

They even had biscuits that you could dip into the soup. I am not sure if they had a pumpkin puree soup during Halloween.... More

I have been to this location several times and they are always very busy. The service is good and the changing salad menu and other additions are always a delight.

I love this place. It´s easy to get there, you pay 8 bucks for a salad and eat ALL YOU WANT from their menu. They have the best chocolate brownies I have ever had!!
