“Great Eats”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

We came here for our New Year Eve's dinner. The place was filled but still could find tables. Upon entering was the line for the salads. I loved the variety of salad fixings and the ingredients looked very fresh. The cashier was courteous and not rushing us. IN the middle of the meal a server came out with fresh baked cookies and served anyone who wanted them. What a treat!!!! The soups were delicious, especially the mushroom soup. I must have eaten 4 bowls of it. There wasn't much variety of fruits though. But overall, my family had a good time catching up and relaxed while we reminisced the blessings we shared in 2012 and looked forward to a great 2013. Right across the restaurant is Walmart so you can walk off the food in your stomach.

“Soups, Salad Bar, Pastas, Hot Breads, Deserts & Beverage Buffet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

Great place to eat. Casual, clean environment. Friendly staff. Reasonably priced. Join Club Veggie and receive great discounts / coupons monthly via email. Excellent variety of foods.
I travel to SanDiego quite often..............and in a 2 week trip, will visit Soup Plantation 3 or 4 times. Mushroom Monday is my favorite day! (The only day cream of mushroom soup is on the menu)
People always thank us for letting them know about Soup Plantation once they go. Well worth the visit!

“Always good eats”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

We ate here with our group with many families and kids. You cant beat the price for the kids. The soups are always hot and tasty. The salads are good too, but you cant forget the muffins and soft serve. If you are looking for a good affordable place to take the famliy and kids, you cant go wrong with this place.

“Great buffet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2012

Great buffet with lots of variety from salad bar to soup and potato bar to dessert bar. Great for vegetarians and even gluten-free diets.

“RB Soup Plantation - Consistently good.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2012

We frequent the RB Soup Plantation at least several times a month. We have never been disappointed. There are times however when the ingredients seem a little fresher on certain days. We enjoy the fact that this location is sort of a 'test' kitchen for other Soup Plantations. We get to try 'new soups' before they make it to the other restaurants.... My favorites are the chicken noodle and when they have it the chicken tortilla soup.

My one and only disappointment is the chili. Just a bit too watery for me. And at times just lacks any kind of flavor that you would would expect from a well made chili.

People are friendly. A nice relaxing place to visit. A place you can depend on.
