First time here. Love that they give you the option to create your own with 8 toppings! They chop everything small and lots of Gluten free dressings to choose from! There was only 1 GF soup to choose from and I didn't notice if they had a GF wrap or bread option for the sandwiches. But the salad and the... More

good value for the price, love their large salads (and they are excellent about asking for "light on the dressing)

You can get a better salad at McDonald's than at this (relatively) expensive salad place! When I visited this place I didn't feel like the greens were especially fresh and I don't like the fact that all the ingredients are chopped up after the salad is created.

Employee greeted us but I felt like we were interrupting her from something else. Antipasto salad had no big flavors and tasted blah. Two salads and two waters was $22.

I was curious about this place and stopped for dinner one night. It's really expensive. I could have driven over to Kroger, bought all the salad ingredients for half the price and put it together myself. I would have saved time and not gotten the attitude from the lady making my salad.

This newer establishment was a great addition to the Plymouth Road area. I enjoyed the options of having "pre-designed" salads, as well as the option to "build your own". The soup and salad options also both looked very appealing. With everything made more or less right in front of you, the salads are pretty fresh. The salads (especially my Cobb... More

I love going here when I am in town. I wish they would open up a store in Chicago and Chicagoland areas. I love you can design your own salad and/or add onto the selections they create. They also have sandwiches and soups to eat. If you need a small adventure, chips are available too.

I am a regular here. I'm both a salad lover and a vegetarian, so a take-out meal at The Big Salad is convenient on my way home from work if I'm too tired to cook. I generally order a custom salad. These come in three sizes with different numbers of toppings. The Big size allows for 7 different toppings (though... More

I have been here for lunch several times and really enjoy the food and service. The salads are good but my favorite thing is the caprese sandwich. They also have very good soups.
