Going to go to a place called Sweet Tomatoes tonight. It's a buffet that mostly consist of salad and soups. Lol, guess it's slightly healthier than other buffets :/

We have a place called Sweet Tomato by us. It's also mostly soups, salads, and sandwiches, but it's not a buffet.

It is really delicious, though.

My mother and I went to Sweet Tomatoes once or twice in Dallas and honestly we where not all that impressed.

Their soups had very little flavor and it seemed like they offered very little food. It was my understanding they where meant to be an all-organic kind of self-serve restaurant and that's well and good but they had barely any food there. When you entered it had a salad 'buffet' that leads to the register and I always got a Cesar salad mix with chicken which was pretty good, but nothing fantastic. Then you pay and go self-serve the rest of the meal. About the only thing I ever got was the salad, a baked sweet potato and maybe some minestrone or chicken noodle soup because they never had anything else. Ever. It was all salad, like 6 vats of soup, and a small front line that had some biscuits and baked potatoes and that was it.

I am not sure if it was just a small size compared to other franchise locations but it was like $12.99 for everything per person and their salads where not worth spending $25 for.

I agree it's not my favorite buffet, and it's overpriced. I had a free meal coupon though, and figured why not. Their selection is lacking when there's a Golden Corral right nearby that's about the same price and offers so much more ^.^

Don't fret; it's not meant to be enjoyed by anyone under 65+
My grandmother and all of her friends adore Sweet Potatoes.
My parents and I do not share the same love of the elementary school wannabe food. At least the salad bar is edible though.

Thinking of "grandma's food", am I the only one who doesn't like my grandmother's cooking? Her BAKING is good. Her COOKING? UGH. She always cooks her chicken by just tossing it in a pressure cooker, unseasoned, and the way it cooks always makes it seem slimy. She never flavours her potatoes, just boils them, drains them and calls it done. She rarely uses spices/seasonings. She repeatedly made me eat liver and kidneys when I was a kid and DAMN was that gross every time. She uses a kind of bread I can't stand. When she makes beef or pork it too has pretty well no flavour added into it and often gets slimily-cooked in a pressure cooker. She certainly never experiments with less-westernized foodstuffs. Oh, and TURNIPS. GOD AWFUL GROSS-ASS TURNIPS.

We got a place like that near us. It's called Souper Salad.
