“Best Fresh Salad every Day”

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013 NEW


I eat at Sweet Tomatoes on Katy Freeway three to four times a week. Why, Because the food if always fresh and they have a large selections.. With a 45-foot salad bar having the most colorful display of fruits and vegetables, grab just one plate to make a monstrous. Then grab a second plate just to enjoy the prepared tossed salads. After completing the salad line, pay for your meal and proceed to the house-made soups (8 every day), hot pastas (3), fresh bakery and warm desserts. Another plate is required for the baked sweet potato, then Blue Berry Muffin, then go ahead and have a slice of the garlic asiago focaccia. For dessert they offer a delicious chocolate brownie muffin that I recommend you putting in a soup bowl and filling with soft-serve vanilla yogurt.
...and remember, this is a buffet. New clean plate and repeat

“Good and Fast”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Co-worker and I had lunch at this location while visiting Houston for business. The salad bar, soup, pasta, and dessert bar was good and offered a great variety. This was my first time eating here however my co-worker had. The food was fresh and hot when appropriate. The decor is simple and casual. A great place for a quick lunch.

“"Great Food, Service Good"”
Reviewed May 22, 2013

The food here is great. The Ceasar salad is the best I ever had. The service is not the best. There were lots of dirty tables and the turnover is quick. It is like there are not enough staff to keep up with keeping the restaurant clean and ready for the next guest. However it is a great place to eat and the soups are fantastic too.
