To heck with Souper Salad!.
Okay...we all can pretty much agree that the prices for a salad bar can be pretty steep. More often than not, when I would go to Souper Salads I had a hard time justifying the price I was paying for the quality of food (which IS NOT BAD; it just could be better in my opinion).
So let's just say someone out there had this same experience but said to themselves, I wonder if this healthy self-serve experience might could be improved? Well, that's basically what Sweet Tomatoes is. Gone are the dingy carpets, pizza pies of questionable age and the overstuffed booth-style seats that surely hold upwards of an entire meal within their folds we usually associate with humdrum locales! Instead you will find attractive, CLEAN metal-and-wood style flooring and seats that feel like a hybrid between hippieland and the industrial age. Your salad bar looks and feels a similar fashion, complete with easy-to-read signs and descriptions of what is before you (so if you're a vegetarian or have a specific diet regimen, you can cut out the guessing game). There's also a better dessert bar and more drink varieties, including fantastic fresh lemonade. Can YOU say that, mr. Souper Salad? I think not.
Warning: May cause individuals to vommit in their mouth.. Do not be fooled by the reviews underneath this one...the only thing good at this salad bar is the soups and the mac and cheese...so if you are 8 yrs old you are set. the salad bar options are WEAK and the TUNA SURPRISE leaves your stomach feeling extremely awkward and unsatisfied. The only thing that I returned to the buffet bar for was the STRAWBERRY LEMONADE....yum...but other than that I lost my appetite. The name of this restaurant should be changed to "Unripe Tomatoes". thats just my two cents
mmmmmm SOUP!. This place is so awesome, I love going here when I'm too busy to cook. great for kids, and super healthy! Thank you mom for showing me this place!!!
Great salad, not enough parking. I love this restaurant. I have introduced tons of people and they all love it too. Make sure you get their early or you will not find parking and if you park in the empty lot behind them you will be towed.
When I first saw Sweet Tomatoes I didn't know really what to expect, so I decided to go in and try it out. Mind you I was a big fan of Souper Salad at the time. Well, on my first dining experience there was someone at the door to greet me and tell how the whole process worked (this was impressive). Once I started fixing my salad, I realized that they have signs to let you know what the benefits are of eating the different ingredients used to make a salad (also a good thing). Lastly, Everything is spread out and continually replenished so that it is always fresh.
I have taken many friends to eat here and they loved it. So I would recommend this any day whether you just want a salad or in the mood for something different. If you check their website on the day you are going you can also get a copy of the menu for the day (it changes everyday). Don't forget to buy you some of their chocolate chip cookies they are baked fresh everyday and are just delicious.
everyone can get what they want, even voracious carnivores.
great salad bar, soup selection and bakery items. staff is friendly and location is spotless.
they need to build more in the north dallas suburbs as it is always packed!
Best Freshest Healthiest and Tastiest Salads! Absolutely Scrumptious!.
I go there 2-3 times a week and have introduced it to my friends, family, and co-workers. They were all amazed at how fresh and tasty their salads are always prepared. They now go very often and are dedicated Sweet Tomatoe goers. Word-of-mouth is the best recommendation any restaurant can inspire.
Their menus are always changing and fun to look forward too.
I hear they're going to add more organic and healthier foods to differentiate themselves more from SouperSalad.
They are great!
The Best Salad Bar In Town. I love eating at a good salad bar. I used to live in Orlando, FL and they had a Sweet Tomatoes there. I used to eat there all the time. I am so happy that we have one here in Addison, TX. The food is always fresh and they staff is always nice and friendly. The restaurant is always clean. I rate the place 10 stars!!! If you have not eaten at Sweet Tomatoes yet then you should. You will also fall in love with the food.
My All-Time Favorite Lunch Spot.
A tip for first-timers---pace yourself! Don't be tempted to load up on all those gorgeous greens and tantalizing tidbits as you walk the entry salad bar. You can always go back for more.
Besides, there are those scrumptous soups---a whole soup bar full of 'em and they change and rotate the kinds of soups served all the time---so much so that my all-time favorite, the cream of tomato soup, isn't available as often as I would like to enjoy it. Pace yourself there, too, taking smaller portions so you can sample two or three at a time.
Be creative! mix 'n match the different bars. I enjoy mixing the hot, sauteed veggies (a daily offering at the hot bar) with nuts, cheeses (the cheese gets all melty) and olive oil from the salad bar.
But that's not all! The selection of tempting teas is unmatched at any other lunch spot I've visited and as an added bonus they actually offer caffeine-free diet cola (really!), an impossible dream at most eateries around town.
But now for the dark side of this fair and balanced review. The dessert bar is a bit ho-hum (thank goodness). Oh sure, they have fresh fruit---but I consider that part of a well-structured salad, not dessert---and, um, that tasty tapioca---but if you've wisely and systematically sampled the all the real food, you can shun that and the ubiquitous frozen custard, cookie crumbles, multi-colored sprinkles, gooey toppings...uh they do have larger bowls (use the soup bowls!).
Oh, and as a previous reviewer mentioned, the parking lot tends to fill up at the peak lunch hour, but just a short walk to the north is an open parking lot---at least until they build something there---just don't park in the immediate neighbors' lots.
Best salad bar around..... When I lived in San Diego I used to go to Souplantation. This was back in the eighties. I always had hoped that they would move east because of the quality of food I would always get there. Come to find out that they did move east and are now in several locations within the DFW area. They go by Sweet Tomatoes in this area, but it is indeed the same company. When I first found out about this my wife and I drove 40 miles one way to go to the one in Addison. It was just as good as I remembered. Obviously prices have changed since the eighties so I was surprised to be paying nearly $25 for two salads and two drinks, but it is all you can eat. I would reccommend getting on their email list and they send 2 for 1 deals that you can use throughout the week. The one place that comes close to this is SouperSalad. The price is less there, but the quality is not as good. If anyone knows a better place I would like to know.
