It's a nice concept....just overpriced.We have eaten from there twice.
First time was carryout and 2nd time was Drive-thru. Both times we ate
there because they had a "grand opening special" with $5.00
discount coupons. In a nutshell we think that they are definitely overpriced.
The salads are presented in nice sturdy plastic containers for carryout
& Drivethru and we saw the presentation for those eating in...it was
nice as well. Portions are the right size for lunch, however the prices
are not inline with what you get. Also: The amount of chicken on the salads
is miniscule - just a couple of small pieces/barely a small tong or spoonful.
I ordered the chicken ceasear both times.My significant other ordered
the Fire Roasted Cabo Jack and then the Buffalo Blue. With our first trip
the restaurant we received the salads in a fairly quick amount of time
and the included our choice of white or wheat roll. (Each salad comes
with a free roll.) We also received butter and salt/pepper in the bag.
On our 2nd trip through the Drive thru, there was not salt/pepper nor
butter in the bag. Also we both noticed that our Drive thru salads seemed
smaller than when we got them as carryout. We didn't order any drinks
either time as we felt that 1.99 for any of their drinks was a little
steep.All told, when you are dropping $8.99 on chicken ceasar salad and
$1.99 on a drink...an $11.00 lunch is more than myself and many of my
co-workers want to spend. Based upon the salads, they are more like a
$5-$6 salad and I think if they want to stay in business in our town,
then they need to reduce prices and add a promotion with a "salad
of the day" or "week" that is reduced in price to that
level. Now onto the TASTE - they tasted fine. The ceasar was like any
normal ceasar. The buffalo and the cabo were fine...nothing to write rave
reviews over, but fine. One minor complaint is that they didn't have any
kind of SPICY salad dressing, but they did have a LOT of dressings. It
seemed a little odd. Will we go back? The answer is a NO...at least not
at these prices. If they run specials/sales/promo's...then yes, we would
go back. The way we see it, when you can go 1 more block down the road
and get a salad YOU make at the Giant Salad bar for MUCH less, why wouldn't
