When it's time to fill-up on fresh green salads, soups, chili, and a little bread nothing can beat this "all-you-can-eat" buffet style chain of restaurants. A nice senior discount and self serve means a minimal tip to which I must state the table cleaner was very attentive. This chain touts that their food is made fresh on site and even... More

It is getting more expensive to eat here. They stopped the email coupon. But you can still find some online. The coupon requires you to bring the family and buy a drink. The soups are getting worse. The clam chowder has less clams and lots of potatoes. The chili is still okay.

My son and his family took me to Sweet Tomatoes because it is one of their favorite fast food restaurants. A person can hardly call it fast food however! The salad items are all fresh and the offerings are always filled. Really good selection of dressings and salad toppings. But wait...there's more! They have chili, soup selections, corn bread, rolls,... More

After the Awesome Highlands Games we had late dinner (8:30). It's buffet style with an abundance of fresh veggies to make a salad. Then you move on to the soup station with 8-10 different soups plus spaghetti and mac & cheese, rolls and a large dessert bar.

Friends took us to this large restaurant when we stayed with them In San Jose C.A. I was really impressed with the enormous salad bar and variety of other freshly made food. I enjoyed soup, large salad and a small bowl of chilli topped off with ice cream...delicious. All on offer was at a fixed price which made this exceptional... More

They have a plethora of items - salads, soups, cutlets, patties, breads and the dessert. Much much more than you can possibly eat even if you were to take only tiny portions. Loved it.

We stopped here for lunch while on a trip and were pleasantly surprised by the quality and range of food available. I tried 3 of the soups and really enjoyed both the potato and clam chowder offerings. The chicken tortilla soup was a little spicy for me. The sour dough bread was tasty and each of the salad items I... More

Enjoyed the lavish spread of salads with avocado ranch and thousand island. Had a lavish treat of delicious soup. Cream of mushroom and potatoe chowder were extremely tasty. We enjoyed blueberry muffins, baked potatoes, brownie bites and cheesy garlic focaccia. It was an extremely enjoyable experience. No wonder why we preferred to have dinner with family soon after landing in... More

Our friends suggested this restaurant and when I looked it up on the web, they had introduced a new Taco Fajita Bar during only Dinner effective that day which I thought was neat considering I am a non-vegetarian but not disliking salads at the same time. We enjoyed the Salad Bar offerings but I did not find any special items... More
