Now that meal will cost you closer to $40 and that's with a... More

We were looking for a healthier option and stumbled upon this place. It's an all you can eat with salad for starters. Most of the veggies are locally grown. There's also soup, build your own sweet potato, pizza, and dessert. It was very tasty!

We enjoying going to these restaurants while on holidays as the salads and fresh vegetables are plenty and the hot items are good as well. Its a great choice with a family. The service at this location seemed better than many of the Sweet Tomatoes and Souplantations we have been to before. They kept checking on us, offered us cookies,... More

We got to the restaurant about 11;10 am. I thought it had just opened for lunch, but they were open for breakfast as well! What a surprise. They had their salad bar, which is awesome, the soups, very good, and then breakfast foods. Eggs, a breakfast pasta which was great, chiliquiles, waffles and more! I enjoyed it, but my dad... More

I'd never been to one of these buffets before. We went for dinner at 6 pm on a Sunday night and it was beyond crowded, even when we left. We did have to wait to be seated, maybe 5 minutes. But even with the crowd, they did a very good job of keeping the buffet items refreshed and everything clean.... More

Dropped by for lunch and found it to be quite like a soup and salad place here. Lunch was $9.99 which includes soup, salads, some sides and ice cream. Good variety of soups to choose from, but nothing really special. Tried the pasta, very bland and not much taste. Over all just average.

Food was fresh and tasty. A variety of salads and soups as well as pasta dishes, chili, flat bread pizzas, and more. Don't forget to finish with the ice cream desserts and toppings. Great place for families and kids.

Met here with friends when I was in town briefly. I'm not a health nut, but I appreciate that it's a buffet with some healthy options, but still lots of good food. It was also conducive to a group get together even though it was pretty crowded on a Friday evening.

These eateries recently added beer and wine to the menu. This wasn't necessary as they were crowded without it. All of them have basically the same choices so you are never disappointed at this all you can eat restaurant that even includes dessert
