We have been visiting Bloomington every December for years and have always headed straight to Mother Bear's pizza. Next year, our first stop will be this little dive. Best soup I've EVER tasted!!! EVER!!! I can't stop thinking about it. Between the 6 of us, we ordered 4 soups and each was just as good as the next. There were... More

Every Friday, my daughter and I hit Darn Good Soup. There is something for everyone here-Vegetarians, Vegans, and Meat lovers can find something tasty. They keep it simple here-Two sizes of soups, two types of bread, and salads. My favorite? Chicken Tortilla-hands down

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.
