The salads were fresh and there was a large choice. Unfortunately the person who served me was rude, unlike the one who served my husband so that put me off - it was like he was doing me a favor

My goodness! I have probably eaten here a thousand times. I love their fresh made-to-order salads topped with fresh roasted turkey; I always ask for dark meat. Very moist and delicious! At lunch there can be quite a line so I always went as soon as they opened. Sometimes I got take-out. Very reasonable prices, too. Open air during the... More

I was working next door at Hanna House. My business partner took me to Pluto for a quick salad. This was exactly what I wanted. Fresh and full of flavour. I would definitively recommend

The salad is great, but you have to queue a while. Sandwiches are faster, so if you are In a group and some have salad, some sandwich those with the salad will have their meal later. If you have a sandwich, go for the turkey. This is fresh roasted and cut to order.

I've been in Pluto's several times. For me is one of those perfect spots for a daily lunch, it's a very big salad, very good and for $10. You can select seven ingredients additional to the lettuce in your salad. What I don't like this store specifically is that it doesn't look that clean, and the bathroom was terrible.

The salads are HUGE! Choosing 7 add-on's from 50 is a torture! But enjoyed the results. Did add chicken for some protein... We were there at around 2PM, and there is still a decent crowd. It is popular for a reason.

I went to Pluto's this week with some coworkers and was very impressed with their salads. It was a great size and had a large selection of different options to choose from. On top of that the price was very reasonable for the area and the size of the meal. Definitely recommend!
