“loved the salad!!”
Reviewed April 21, 2012

This was a fun place to visit. I ordered a large salad (full size) with 7 toppings. Next time I will probably order a side salad as the full size was huge. All the toppings were very fresh and good. They had a good selection with some unusual items available. The grilled fennel was a first for me. The food must be consistenly good as the place was packed!!

“Love this place!”
Reviewed February 21, 2012

Great food for all types of diners. Want one of the best salads you'll ever have? Comes in several sizes and you get to choose seven toppings included: my favorite, candied walnuts. Want a comfort food dinner with hot turkey, homemade mashers and amore? Plus it's self-serve and priced great. Only complaint is they need more tables.

“Great food! Great value!”
Reviewed January 7, 2012

Salads and sandwiches, with a good selection of meats and vegetables. We've been several times on trips to San Francisco and have never been disappointed.

“great place for a fresh meal!”
Reviewed December 28, 2011

I was new to San Fran and a mail woman told me about this place that consistently served great, economical lunch. The food was delicious and clearly fresh. Even better was the warmly welcoming staff that were able to accommodate any alteration to the menu.

“Starving student place with fresh food”
Reviewed November 16, 2011

Pluto is in the U C S F neighborhood . We were looking for a salad place for lunch. Clientele is interesting and furtive people watching
makes up for the bare bones decor and sticky tables.

Service is a cafeteria style line. Offerings are hot lunch meat dishes and sandwiches in addition to excellent fresh salads. You build your own salad by ordering size , type of greens, and choosing among a wide selection of toppings. Not a salad bar, staff mixrd it for you. For what is offers,Pluto does it well .
