Long lines, bland terrible food, unfilled stations, and screaming children are all reasons I will never be back.

I came here for lunch with a work colleague. This is self-serve, buffet style. They had different types of soups, all kinds of salad items, breads, rolls. You can't go wrong, it's quick and healthy

The food was really fresh, and there was a wide variety of items. Lots of great, healthy toppings in the salad bar, and several delicious soups. They had a delicious pasta bar, good muffins and breads, and a tasty ice cream dessert area to top it all off. Delicious!

Great place to get something on the healthier side when you have been eat junk! Place is very busy and the food is fresh. Service is great, parking is a hassle.

good bargain if you want to stuff yourself with many repeating selections veggies are usually fresh soups are on the bland side (they offer jalapeños) go on the off hours to avoid the hoards

Cheap gross food, but it is a good cost for unlimited food. Lemonades are pretty good. Long lines at prime dinner time.

Huge soup and salad bar. Nice, but nothing to write home about. Good for a quick lunch/dinner after a day of travel if you don't want to bet back in the car.

I've been to lots of Souplantation restaurants and when traveling I gravitate to them since the food is healthier than most places, the service instant and the staff plesant.
