Similar to Urban Plates, this is a cafeteria style restaurant. However, it is much quicker than Urban Plates (maybe due to fewer choices) and it is a much cleaner restaurant. Urban Plates was strewn with dirty trays, chairs and food all over the place when...More

Good place to have lighter and healthier meals. They have refreshing healthy salads, soups, sandwiches, and even desserts that we always enjoy. Parking is either on the street or the nearby public parking one block away. Don't miss this unique style of good simple eats.

This is actually a really good restaurant. First you choose your protein, then you add your greens plus many different interesting healthy side dishes. It’s a cafeteria type style for a quick and easy healthy food.

We came here for take out. The food is pretty good and the service is pretty quick. I had the Happy Vegan Salad that seems really healthy, but’s actually 980 calories so just watch out!

This was our sixth time at Tender Greens and each time I found the Steak Salad extremely good. The last time in I saw a lady sitting at the table next to our table with a plate of fried chicken with salad and mashed potatoes....More

Tender Greens is fast food done right: line up, pick your choices, and the counter folks will put it together. Lots of healthy options here (and more than a few temptations to keep from being too healthy.) Great choice of fine craft brews. Fairly priced...More
