I got a decent sandwich and a GREAT bowl of soup here. I believe I got the corn chowder, and an avocado BLT or something like that. My boyfriend got a different sandwich and his was amazing. Mine just kept falling apart and it was annoying. The food was good, the location is central, and the atmosphere was nice/trendy.

Note to self: If it's late at night and I want soup, just make it myself. Soup should not look like it's a cup of rice pudding. I thought I had received the wrong order. It appears that they put everything through some sort of press or blender so you're essentially getting a cup of mush.

Apparently, this place has switched over owners. The sandwiches, etc., now just seem to be ok (though maybe it was a fluke?), but the frozen yogurt is still great. You can pick your own mix-ins and toppings and they have a tofu version as well as a sugar-free version, I believe. (Side note: Delivery was very slow when I ordered... More

The frozen yogurt was amazing. I love the build it yourself style and there are plenty of options. The staff was great and orders were made quickly.

So disappointed since it came highly recommended. But I found out after the fact that new owners took over. My husband order a chicken gyro wrap, and he asked how the chicken was cooked, and was told it was "grilled". NOT! It was microwaved, he barely ate it. I order a prosciutto sandwich, and I did like the bread, but... More

Prices were awesome! Bathrooms were so clean. Service was fast and friendly. The cost of 3 frozen yogurt and 3 drinks was around $13. Really great place.

As I opened the door I was struck by the fantastic aroma of the foods they were preparing. The second thing that impressed was the menu selection, I found it hard too choose because so many things appealed to me. The people working there were very friendly and the service was great. I ordered the "Patriot"; Pastrami, Corn beef, Swiss,... More

Driving through Salem around noon needing a place to eat. Happened to walk by this restaurant and saw the Tripadvisor badge on the door. Saw the menu for sandwiches, salads and soup. After looking at menu and lots of options that sounded good, we each picked a half sandwich and a salad. Both of our meals were GREAT, and they... More

While seeing the sites in Salem one day with out of town guests, I ventured into Kushco for a quick lunch. That decision proved to be one of the best ones of the day! The menu is extensive and very eclectic. There were so many intriguing soup/salad/sandwich/wrap selections to choose from! The sandwiches and salads that we finally decided upon... More

I was in Salem for a wedding, and rented a condo across the street from Kushco. Went there for a quick lunch, ordered the chicken portobello mushroom sandwich and chicken lemon soup. The soup was delicious and the sandwich was the best sandwich I've ever eaten. I went back the next day and had the same thing, and it was... More
