After visiting the cemetery in Santa Nella we decided to try Pea Soup from Anderson's. We had the best experience. Walked in to there gift area and delicious looking Danish pastry. We came for soup and our waitress was so helpful, patient and efficient. We only wanted to split a sandwich (patty melt) and have their famous pea soup. To... More

It's been a long time since my last visit to Pea Soup Anderson's. The soup is the same, the coffee coffee cup stayed full and the bread rolls were plenty. It was just as I remembered which made my trip a bit more enjoyable. You can miss with a cup of soup at Pea Soup Andersons.

Ordered a bowl of their famous Split Pea Soup. It had good flavor, but it was very thin (soupy). I have been there many times and the Pea Soup was always a lot thicker. I guess they have to skimp to save money. We did like the gift shop and their great Cheddar Cheese tub. Bought some to bring home.

Stopped in at Pea Soup Andersen's, Santa Nella Outlet while working in the area and found the menu and quality to be just as it was 20 years ago. As an infrequent visitor; I always have to go with the Pea soup and the tuna sand was also very good. PSA may be a bit on the high side, but... More

This place is always busy! The Split Pea soup is all we've ever tried. Or the soup and salad choice which is also very good. The salad has red cabbage and carrot shreds plus croutons. You can order toppings such as diced ham, green onions, cheddar cheese, bacon crumbs for the soup, so good! The onion rolls are also very... More

This place has negative ambience. It's tired and thoroughly depressing. The menu is eclectic but extremely limited. When our food arrived one of us had the wrong thing and it became clear that the next table had also got the wrong meals but the mix up could not be resolved as the meals were totally wrong. We tried to overlook... More

We ordered a tuna sandwich with a bowl of pea soup and a Coke to drink. The food tasted good and the staff were friendly and helpful during our visit. The atmosphere was nice and comfortable. Prices are reasonable for what you get.

I can remember eating in the Buellton, CA branch when I was a teenager with my parents, I'm now a septuagenarian, so you can say these restaurants have been here a while (established 1924).. I've been eating at this location since it opened in the 60's or 70's. I like their soup and other food. Soup, salad, and a burger...... More

See title, they do have other food but I have never tried AZ anything else but the pea soup. They do have souvenir type items for sale.

Had always heard about "Pea Soup Andersen's" - so had to stop when driving by. So glad we did! Wonderful food, reasonable prices and speedy (not super friendly, but speedy) service! Enjoyed the soup, but was honestly surprised at how "thin" it is... it's not the kind of soup where you stick your spoon in and it stands up -... More
