Healthy salads 11/1/2007

sfgoodgurl Provided by Partner
I love the salads here... you can make your own, they are very fresh ingredients, and VERY reasonably priced. If you get a main salad with meat and add extra meat, it is easily a great, healthy meal for two for $10!! Though very noisy, the turn-around is quick so you are apt to find a place to sit. The one thing I can't stand is the language barrier from the order takers, they can never understand that I want all the salads MIXED together (romaine, spring, and spinach)... it's very simple to do, but they never get it. They always want to give me the spring mix. Pros: cheap, healthy, quick Cons: language barrier with salad makers more

salads! 8/6/2007

Best place for salads since all made to order and can get everything one wants ? even topped with meat! Narcissists go crazy! Everything is fresh. The sandwiches are hearty & filling. Beware of the onion rings & fried potatoes, which prove addicting. Bummer the frequent dining card disappeared. Pros: salads Cons: closes @ 10pm more

The best salads ever! 2/25/2007

sonyacrowley Provided by Partner
I'm not generally a fan of this sort of establishment- it's small, the lines are long, it's in a busy part of the Sunset- but Pluto's salads are amazing. Completely worth trecking to that side of the city, even! You choose 7 additions and dressing, they toss it all together, you pay for it. They have sandwiches too, but they don't look very interesting. I like their sides, but they can be salty. Pros: Scads of choices for salads. Cons: hard to find a place to sit (yourself or your car). more

Good Value...Inconsistent Service & Portions 9/22/2006

hungrysf Provided by Partner
No doubt the value at Pluto's is present. However, the degree of value and service sways on each and every visit. The cooks and cashier RARELY smile and often seem upset. On top of that portion size is extremely inconsistent. One night you get a HUGE salad, loaded with ingredients. The next night you get half that amount...all depending on the cook you get and whether or not they like you. I'd advise them to train their staff to smile and set up a consistent portion size. In any case the concept is a good one and your dollar still goes a long way. Pros: Overall Value, Freshness Cons: INCONSISTENT Service & Portions, DAMN Slow Water Dispenser, No Smiles :( more

Poor service and inconsistent amounts 9/15/2005

dyj48 Provided by Partner
Just came back from Plutos and was taken aback at the inconsistencies in terms of salads. I ordered a Main salad and when it was done, it was about the same as a side amount. I aksed if that was really a main and then compared it to other salads that were sides and it was very slightly more. I looked over the side and saw another customer with a main salad and it was twice the amount of mine, but my server insisted what I had was a main. He was not inclinded to add any more and I left. I won't be back ever again. Don't recommend it, poor service and very inconsistent in terms of what you get. more

Cheap, Fast, Fresh, and Tasty 8/18/2004

vassariggy Provided by Partner
Visited 8/19/04. The wait was very short, but a bit confused about how one gets "servied": just walk up with your blank ticket to the station of interest (Salad, Sandwiches, or Sides), tell the order, and they punch it for you. I had the grilled flank steak sandwich, which was a good size and very tasty. The garlic fries were piled high, but aside from being seasoned curley frieds with mounds of diced garlic piled on, it was nothing special. My friend had a salad, which was huge, and she liked it very much. I think for Pluto's, keep it simple and stick with salads and sandwiches. Pros: Cheap Fresh Food, Fast Service, Easy to Get to (N) Cons: , Glorified Cafeteria more

Down to Earth food from Pluto 6/8/2004

howudoinsf Provided by Partner
Popped in for a quick bite tonight... You grab a meal ticket and order your food, the card gets punched out and totalled at the register. Had the Sonoma turkey/gravy, Galaxy veggies, onion rings and a root beer for $10. Everything was decent, veggies were a bit spicy as was the bbq sauce for the rings. Decor is casual college, with some wood tables, stools and a tv for dining entertainment. I liked the place but maybe expected too much. Either way, it's a good deal for the $$$ Pros: Inexpensive more

Out of this world! 5/19/2004

Great food, great prices, what can go wrong?? Only negaitve is lack of parking. BIG portions, great garlic fries....two of the best combinations imaginable ... garlic and potato. Good flank steak, salads, spuds, and did I mention garlic fries?? Plus, Pluto's is a no tip restaurant, but they all work had to deserve it. And Thomas Kemper root beer ON TAP! Just go with an empty stomach... you will leave satisfied. Pros: Good food, Great value more

The BIG Salad!!! 7/2/2003

sk_chan Provided by Partner
What a great place for a BIG salad ala Seinfeld. Don't miss the garlic potato rings (curly fries). Get ice for your water from the cashier. Serves all the traditional American staples in a new and hip way. Spuds, salads, sandwiches, etc. Check it out. Pros: Fresh, Economical, Good for Kids Cons: Parking, Noisy more
