I couldn't believe the quality of the food on my first couple of visits at this (now small chain) restaurant. Despite the casualness of it all, the salads, and plates are just simply great. You can pair a protein with mashed potatoes and a simple salad, or have one of the big salads or try the soup and a simple salad, and you won't believe how it all comes together for a hearty and delicious meal. On this 5th visit, I find the quality to be as good, and no fluke, and the hangar steak and chipotle chicken were excellent yesterday as was the simple kale salad. Who can't resist some ice cream to finish off the meal for just $2 or a choice of good local brews to complement the meal? Nicely done again - good service and good food!

My favorite is the hot plate with mashed potatoes with steak or tuna & side caesar. Always good & healthy! Proteins cooked perfectly. The balance of protein, salad and carbs is perfect.

We enjoyed it so much that we actually went back twice during our visit. The food is all made fresh, portions are good, and the ingredients are healthy yet indulgent at the same time. Prices are a little steep for a counter-service restaurant - without beverages we spent about $15 per person on each visit.

We were in SD recently for the Indiefest and this Tender Greens was near the hotel. Based on Yelp reviews we decided to give it a try. Boy are we glad we did! We had to wait in line just a few minutes, but once we had ordered the food came very quickly. And the food was just great! And inexpensive, which is always nice. I had the Backyard Marinated Steak - delicious - and hubby had the Salt & Pepper Chicken, which he loved. The only con at this place is that it has a very high ceiling, so noise just bounces around - it can be a little difficult to carry on a conversation. But for great grub at a reasonable price, I highly recommend.
