I did not come here for steak so I really enjoyed my lunch. I did not expect silver or china so I was not disappointed. I expected good flavor so I went away happy. Sometimes it is just what you needed for lunch at the price you will not wince at. I am heading back soon.

Excellent chicken tortilla soup. We also had the lentil soup which was pronounced 'very good,' but not better than the office cafeteria (a tough comparison, believe it or not). Note that the soups here are relatively expensive for the serving size. Not sure who is paying for what in a college town like this... (mom/dad? alums? visitors?) Also interesting is... More

Looking for fine dining? Go someplace else. Looking for an extensive menu? Go someplace else. Looking for some excellent soup? THIS IS THE PLACE. I don't know how many different soups they have in their repertoire but on the day we visited, they were serving ten different ones. The staff was friendly and helpful - showing us each one and...

Always a range of soups, all reasonably priced. All come with a choice of wheat or white roll. Very limited seating.

Great grab and go place. Excellent in winter! Love their Chicken Pot Pie and Chicken Tortilla soups. And it is so inexpensive, that picking some up is always a reasonable dinner option.

A good selection of soups - I wish they had some kind of sampler flight like a brewery. We had a chicken stew (Calabacitas) and the Italian wedding soup. The chicken was a tasty melange of flavors & ingedients, primarily chicken & squash. The wedding soup was loaded with meatballs. Great lunch on a rainy day.

Not much to say here, really. It was just like the name suggests: darn good soup! I had a bowl of the gumbo, and it was delicious.

We've been to most every restaurant in Bloomington, and this is my absolute favorite casual stop for food in town. The soups are original and just plain delicious!!! They're a bit stingy on the bread--really my only complaint. Last time I got a cookie too and was very impressed. I'll miss this place when I leave Bloomington. Thanks for the... More

The soup here is the best in town. No frills interior, and a bit expensive for the portion, but the reason you come here is for delicious soup. And it does not disappoint!

My girlfriend and I frequently stop by Darn Good Soup, especially when their Facebook page posts a new or interesting style that we have not tried. I would recommend this place to any person travelling to Bloomington. There are meat, vegetarian and vegan options. From personal experience, the meat options are amazing. My boss (a vegetarian) swears by their vegetarian... More
