The Missus likes it-I think it is awful. I like salad and I like the competitor, Souper Salad, but have been to about 4 Sweet Tomatoes restaurants over the last decade or so and consistently find it overpriced and totally unsatisfying. Salads are okay but nothing very special and everything else is really BAD. Save your money and eat a peanut butter sandwich so you can save up and have some real food. Almost $10 for lettuce is absurd!

Once again, Fresh Tomatoes did not disappoint us!! We had so many choices of salads and many choices of additions that it was hard to choose. We also had our choice of soups, pasta, muffins, and great desserts. The food and drink costs included free refills of everything. The restaurant was light, bright, cheerful and clean with pleasant staff available but not intrusive. Loved this place!

This is a buffet full of fresh, tasty salad fixings - but wait - there's more! There are also baked regular and sweet potatoes, pastas and a huge variety of soups. Basically this was a vegiatarians dream but there were plenty of meat choices as well. Pasta with meat, chilli, and salads with chicken were all great options. The problems are few - the biggest is that you can eat until you bust so the "healthy" part of the equation is basically lost if you don't contain yourself (oh, did I mention the self-serve ice cream bar with fixin's?).
Definately a good deal financially (with special prices for seniors, among others). $44 for 6 and we didn't really have to eat another meal that day. Take your time, pace yourself and consider all options. Enjoy.

We love Sweet Tomatoes at home and it was just as great in Phoenix. Great salad buffet, with many soups and pasta, plus bread and fruit and ice cream...clean and great food!

Everything to choose from was absolutely fresh and delicious. Great place for a family to get together after church as there is something for everyone to choose from.
