Ranked #102 of 372 Restaurants in Roseville
Cuisines: American
Description: This place has been called "an upscale cafeteria," but it's the healthiest, most fun "fast food" you'll find anywhere. Approach the salad bar and you're greeted by your personal salad builder armed with a stainless steel bowl and a pair of tongs. First name your type of salad greens, then call out your seven choices of additional items (for example: onions, beets, sunflower seeds, croutons, sprouts, bacon bits, edamame, corn, etc., all fresh and cold). Add a half or whole sandwich (they usually have three specials per day), or move down the counter to the hot table where you'll find roast meats, potatoes and vegetables or hot soups. It all happens very fast but you never feel rushed. Order your drink, pay, and find a seat. It's always crowded but somehow there's always an open table. Portions are very generous, so if you're with someone, consider sharing. This is our forst choice for lunch when we're in the Roseville area (in The Galleria shopping mall 20 miles east of Sacramento at I-80 and Highway 65).

“Reliable, simple, solid”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

Our first visit to Pluto's generates 3 stars. We split a large salad and a big roast turkey sandwich. Both were good and the quantity was just right. We watched as they prepared both the salad and sandwich. Easy to select ingredients and garnishes.

It's cafeteria style. You line up, read the paper menu or glance at the menu boards and make choices that the server immediately begins to assemble as you watch. The acoustics in Roseville are not so good in the cavernous room, so we had to ask the server to repeat himself a few times.

We'll go back for decent food at a fair price. Our meal set us back $18 with two drinks. Not as inexpensive as fast food, but the meal justified the small added cost.

“Fresh Food Alternative!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

Seeking a healthier dinner than the usual I landed at Pluto’s at the Galleria Mall Promenade for the first time. Three people went in just ahead of me, but before I even finished looking at everything they were ready to take my order and getting food was very fast. Ordered a half salad with Turkey and a side of Brussels sprouts which was served on a separate plate. The half salad was huge, lots of romaine, plenty of toppings to chose from and you can order up to seven included in the price. I kept it simple with red peppers and red onions, in addition to the Turkey, no dressing. Included was a slice of bread on the side. The Turkey was cut fresh off the bird and just the right amount. The half salad alone would have been more than enough as it is huge and I did end up saving almost half for later. The Brussels sprouts were good, they came with a lot of bacon which was weird and unnecessary for me, I usually steam them plain and like them that way. Anyone who orders Brussels sprouts isn’t going to be afraid of them, no need to hide under bacon. The romaine lettuce was dryer than I’m used to at home, but fresh enough, and for those who like dressing probably a good thing. If you are eating vegetarian a half salad would probably still be enough for a meal, but a whole would ensure it. Total cost of side salad and side dish with tax was $9.30. Once you start ordering and figure out the system it is pretty simple. Restaurant has a nice setup and cool décor. Plentiful indoor seating and outdoor seating available when the weather is nice. Nice heavy plates and real tableware, not plastic, unless you are getting your meal to go, then it is a sturdy plastic fork. Pluto’s also makes sandwiches for those not into a salad. I highly recommend Pluto’s!
