This is one healthy place we all agree upon and with a Family Deal coupon of either $29.99 or $24.99, there's no better value than that. We can spend the same for eating fast food, but here, we leave feeling good about what we ate and we each have our favorite. What's offered in fresh vegetables is simple, uncomplicated which works better for our kids than Mariano's salad bar, Jewel-Osco, and Whole Foods. Sure, we parents could prefer something more gourmet, but this is our sure bet on a weeknight when there's nothing to eat at home and it's too late to cook. We often run into other families with children we know here too.

I'm not a fan. Good for those who like buffets of salads, pasta, pizza. Needless to say, lots of kids. You get lots of food, but the quality is just fair. Anytime someone suggests this place, I vote to go elsewhere. My rating: just meh.

The prices have slowly crept up over the years, but there are coupons available -- and the senior late-afternoon special is a bargain since it includes beverages and/or coffee.
At other times there is a 10% discount for seniors.

This place is really wonderful for families with young children. Between all-you-can-eat mac and cheese -- and the do-it-yourself soft serve ice cream station -- it's a kids' dining paradise.

If you are gong to Sweet Tomatoes, you are afforded the ability to make a salad entirely up to your specifications. There are more than enough ingredients to load your salad exactly the way you want. They also have focaccia, mini muffins, bread and cornbread. They have about eight different types of soups, a baked potato counter where you can choose your baked potato and then you can also load up the baked potato. This month - April - they are also doing something with Asian flavors, so watch for the stir fry and other items that are a bit more Asian oriented. The cashiers are friendly as are the table people. For the number of people that come through here, it is kept remarkably clean.

When most people think of Sweet Tomatoes they think of a soup and salad place. While it is true that the place focuses on those two commodities, they also serve pizza, mac and cheese, as well as various breads and desserts. The food looks and tastes fresh. My wife loves the place as she feels that we are doing our bodies a favor when we eat here.
I have found the staff to be very helpful as well as friendly.
Great location near O'Hare.
Fair prices.
