I was the only person in my family who has ever been to Sweet Tomatoes. It is one of my favorite places to eat. The other 13 people who went with me were totally amazed at this place. With all the food choices and the quality of the food, children and adults both want to come with me again!!

I loved this place for a quick meal. Their To Go containers were huge for $6.99, not by weight. It was enough for over two meals for me. Unfortunately, this and all Illinois locations have closed. Hope they open again soon. RIP garlic dressing

Being away from home, you are tempted to make poor food choices. With Sweet Tomatoes, we were able to have lots and lots of veg. We went to one in Florida and I was disappointed to discover they didn't have meat. This time, i was happy to have so many veg options. You walk in and start with plate to... More

It's a buffet of salad. With soup. And some bread. And an ice cream machine for dessert. The kids loved it. I found it just ok. It is pretty expensive so beware of that.

It's confusing when you enter the place, no hostess. I had to ask an employee that was filing the trays where to go. I walk in and see people around a salad bar, like a buffet and you pay at the end after making your salad.

Oh,I loved this place especially because of my love for Italian food particularly salads and dressings ! I am a vegetarian and there were plenty of options to choose from which cheered me ! The desserts were yummy so was the pizza and the breads. Would definitely visit once again .

I was a big fan of Sweet Tomatoes and especially I loved this location. However, my visit yesterday (7/10/2016) frustrated me a lot. There are no spoons I can use. They are completely not clean. So I have to clean by myself to eat something. I cannot imagine how come they initially put those spoons to serve people. I've checked... More
