We love coming here for Linner(lunch/dinner). They always have at least 5-6 soups and a lot of choices for salad toppings. Their breads are great and you will always have room for their ice cream. I really like their pizza breads too. A great value before 4 pm.

Look for coupons in them mail and it is an even BETTER deal. You pay one price per adult (or child) and then you can help yourself to all the salad, soup, potatoes and dessert you can eat. I really like their salad bar. Everything is really fresh and easy to customize. The soup bar is good because you can... More

The service is friendly. The salads are not only nutritious, but really yummy and so are there pastas if you are not allergic to dairy or gluten. They have a chocolate like lava brownie-cake type dessert on and off that is so heavenly that words cannot accurately begin to describe it (for all chocolate lovers!) However, as I said, this...

This restaurant isn't fancy and it is definitely family friendly and casual, but it has the best salad bar. Everything you can think of, plus soaps, breads, pasta, and even an ice cream bar. It was a fun evening out and we left very full and happy.

Once in awhile. I'd just have to have a lot of vegi. Raw vegi. And, this IS the PLACE for it It will be super noisy. Sometime, if you happened to line right after a young couple with 1+ kids, you might spend 20 minutes behind them for their kid/s to decide what they wants....... Last time I was there... More

My ninety-two year old aunt suggested we eat at this resturant during our recent visit. We went at 3 pm so things were relatively quiet. I had all of the soup, salad and bread I desired. Others in my group also enjoyed pasta and desert items. There seems to be a large variety of different things to try. We enjoyed... More

Good selection of salad items. Together with a variety of soups and muffins, this place has become my family's go-to place for easy and healthy dinners.

The base of this buffet is its salad bar, but it has some interesting pre-mixed salads as well as a make-it-yourself option. I prefer to do both! Aside from the salad options- and there are a lot- there is an assortment of freshly made soups, chili, pizza, focaccia and corn breads, muffins, pasta; a potato bar with topping center, and...

I wish we had one in our hometown. I enjoy the healthy options and the fresh made comfort food as well. Our family enjoys the food and good customer service when we visit this chain.
