I can always count on Sweet Tomatoes

Everything is always so fresh and so very clean. The staff is great and because most of what they serve is on the healthier side of things, I don't typically see the sort of all-you-can-eat crowd typical of places like Cici's. I love how they rotate the soups and stews and the bakery staff is... read more

This is a family favorite. We live in the area and have been dropping by on Sunday's for lunch for years. They have a good selection of freshly prepared salads and build-your-own salads; both our teenage sons love the salads. Its the only restaurant in town where they pile on healthy food, so we return in large part just for... More

If you are a salad lover, stay away. The selections are very minimal even though this is supposed to be a salad bar.

Good food. It is a all you can eat buffet. Many Many healthy selections. VERY good soups. Energetic workers who keep food on buffet and tables clean. Nothing fancy, but worth the trip. Cost about $13./each but you can get discount tickets online and scan off phone at register.

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
