Don't be put off by all the kids and seniors eating here. This popular Spring Branch location of the modest restaurant chain is the ne plus ultra of salad-and-soup buffets. Nothing in the salad line ever looks the least bit wilted or desiccated, and the soups taste like a fantasy mom's finest, with at least one vegetarian selection always available. The made-to-order pasta bar is only passable, but the bakery offers a delightful variety of bread, rolls and muffins. Baked potatoes of a manageable size and even baked sweet potatoes are available for those fearless of carbohydrates.
