Dropped in there for lunch after two weeks travelling around California. Was a welcome surprise to be able to build your own Salad or order one of a number of suggested options. I went with the chicken COB and while it was tasty, I should have asked for dressing on the side as unfortunately it was very heavily coated in... More

The food here is high quality. The mix not exactly great if you are seeking a non inflammatory diet (yes organic can still give you heart disease) and it seems pricey for a place with no waitstaff.

This place offers a great array of healthy options. They have large salads as well as main entrees. They offer vegan, vegetarian and gluten free options that are really tasty. The service is good and the brownies were really good!

I have visited Tender Greens since it opened here in Pasadena. The food is fresh and tasty although the assembly-line ordering leaves a lot to be desired. This bothered me so much that now I order for home delivery and am quite happy. The food is the same as eating in-house and the delivery quick.

This is a modest chain, cafeteria style place, with good food, ample portions, plentiful portions, and modest $. Great for a quick, easy lunch or dinner. You choose from the posted menu, then slide your tray along the line, picking up whatever you ordered, pay at the end and find your table. Some items, that required prep will be brought... More

This is a restaurant we walk by every time we go to Roy's and each time I say we should try it. We finally did. The restaurant is above other salad restaurants because you can build your own salad, plate, or sandwich and you can choose a number of different proteins. Protein to go with your salad steak, chicken (BBQ,... More
