I love this place and frequent it quite often. They're open for lunch and dinner. There is a pretty generous salad bar and they also offer prepared salads. There is also soup and chili, although only 2 soup choices.

mmmmmmm.....Super tasty, fresh produce and generous with chicken. Comes with shredded cheese, chicken, salad, cucumbers, tomatoes and crispy pieces of bacon. Great lunch treat from the boss. Salad shoppe is always good. To eat in out take out is the real question :)

With the demise of Fresh Choice, it's been hard to find a replacement. This small, local salad restaurant isn't it. On the night I was here-a Saturday I ordered some tuna salad to go on top of my regular salad. After paying for my regular...More
