This chain (Souplantation in the West Sweet Tomatoes in the South) has some of the highest standards in the soup/salad buffet biz. Some vary, but the Katy FWY location subscribes to the highest standards. When in Houston, I never miss the Sunday Breakfast.

Got bowled over by their salads, vegan soup, breads & other bakery products served during lunch. This place was truly a delight for a vegetarian like me. Super value for money & most importantly very very healthy & tasty. A coupon made my visit even more beneficial as I could have my lunch in Houston under $10. I paid the... More

The name attracted me as I love tomatoes in any form. I was so pleased with the buffet format. Just enough selection of hot foods to go with the fantastic salad bar. Loved it all.

Just off Texas 249 at Houston’s Willowbrook Mall, this restaurant had to have one of the very best all-you-can eat buffet salad bars we’d ever found! There’s lots of free onsite parking. Service at the cashier’s station was down-home friendly. Our dining table and utensils were clean. Even though we’d arrived within two hours of closing, all the berries, fruits,... More

This place is always a good experience. The staff is friendly, the food is fresh and it's more than salad. I take my wife here to lunch and my kids here for dinner. Everyone in the family likes the variety from the salad to soups and even the great choice of bread. It's pretty pricey so make sur you bring... More

For a salad bar this place is pretty good with a nice choice and is always pretty busy. Been a few times now and will go back, always fresh and good value for money.

Don't get me wrong, the salads and other offerings have been tasty on my last visits. But, I've become aware of the relationships between staff and that many of the management are terribly sub par. We visit this restaurant often when we are in the Houston area, about 5 times a year. It is always one of our stops. We... More

The salad bar is generally well stocked and very fresh, especially when the place is busy. Good variety, but the add-on charges for 'protein' on the salad bar put me off a bit. The dressings are varied and quite tasty. The soups and pasta dishes are exceptional! Good matching of breads and pastries, so overall a good dining experience. If... More

4/23/2012 My family of three and I visited for lunch and we had a coupon for $7.99 each so our bill came to be $33.38. The ceasar salad was very good even my college aged daughter complimented how great the salad was. I also love the potatoe andbarley soup, a greatplace for vegetarians like myself. I really enjoy coming here... More
