We go to Fresh City 2-3 times a month for lunch or dinner. The salad bar is always fresh, with many choices. The stir fry dishes and sandwiches are made to order, so even if a particular combo isn't on the menu board, they'll make it for you. Lines can be long at times, but they go fast. The atmosphere...

Best Salad bar around! The bottomless salad bar at just under nine dollars is a deal that is hard to beat. Must be 40-50 items, all fresh. The wraps are great, the smoothies are fresh and varied...Amazing that Fresh City hasn't expanded faster (if they're all like this!). They used to serve beer, but no longer offer it...too bad, out...

I ordered a buffalo chicken wrap for lunch. Not only was there almost no chicken in it, it was full of super-salty generic blue cheese dressing. Not worth the price.

The staff are ridiculous as they never take responsibility for a new customer coming in. This usually takes place around 12-2 PM when most people are getting lunch. You walk in and you go over to the burrito line and they usually say that it's not their responsibility. They never ask what you want on the food and then when... More

If you like plastic in your food, and burritos that taste the way old library books smell, then check out Fresh City. *choking*

Fresh city is about as generic as it gets. Their salad bar is an ok deal.

If I had posted this review yesterday it would have been a "5" but I went in last night and their self-serve bowls are now about 20% smaller. I wouldn't have minded a 20% price increase but this just seemed underhanded. And when I asked, the server replied:"I think they're still about the same size." But I checked with several... More

I love being able to stop by during work -and get a yummy black bean burrito with all of the things I want in it. Put a smoothie with it and for under 8.00 you have yourself a consistently fabulous lunch.

It was my first time getting Fresh City for lunch. Ordering online made it easy. Great options. You can get bowls sans breads, and switch out the white wraps for wheat. There are a lot of vegetarian options as well. The roasted veggie burrito was good and filling. The mushroom soup was a little bit salty, but not horrible. I'd... More

Not much to say about this place. Nothing stands out in any way. Their portions are large and everything is fresh but if it wasn't near my office I wouldn't go.
