Quality Salad Buffet - Reasonable Price

Good variety of salad choices, quality tasting salads including soups and pastas are part of the buffet menu. The price per person is reasonable when you search the internet for a current Sweet Tomatoes coupon.

Soup and salad. to say the salad bar is complete is an understatement. soups good and hot if most are a little bland. Nice assortment of breads. The night we went was busy and seriously LOUD. Great to take the kids but not very relaxing.

Choices of tastes are broad enough to satisfy most palates. This is not fine dining, but a buffet of selections centered around healthy veges, fruits and soups. Lots of families patronize this store. Decent senior value offered, but is limited to certain times of the day.

Very nice hostess/cashier with a robust salad buffet. In addition pizza, soups and soft serve ice cream were offered. All you can eat salad and pasta buffet for a reasonable price. Very similar to other similar establishments. Clean facility and outdoor seating.

This place is usually busy, but you get a table always. The service is excellent and they cleanup the place always very quickly. Of course they send so many coupons once you sign up for the veg club

They always have a great selection of salads. Typically Caesar, Chinese Chicken Salad, and the specialty salad. Sometimes the specialties are really good other times less so. But you can make your own salad with a long table full of fresh ingredients. Plus good soups, muffins, pasta, baked potatoes, and desserts.

Its great for lunch or dinner. Healthy salads and fast moving crowds. They have a good array of comfort soups and breads. I love their baked potatoes. Its bit noisy, but hey.. its family and kids friendly!

I love a good buffet. This place never lets me down. Great food, they keep the place clean. I wish they could expand the place. It's always packed, but they still seem to get you thru the line in under 10 minutes.

Eating here is similar to eating at a cafeteria, but food is decent for the price and there are so many options! Went on a Thursday at 2 p.m. and they were very busy but there is plenty of seating and much room for patrons to move about. Recommend!
