Is this mini chain any good? Why? Why not?
I like their turkey sandwiches. Fresh roasted turkey with cranberry sauce, roasted onions on grilled foccacia bread.
I usually get it to-go, I don't think I've had a sit down meal there.
I think they are good for basic eats.
Funny you should ask - I recently searched for "Plutos" on Chowhound, and didn't see many posts. I really love this place - food is tasty and fresh, with a decent variety to choose from. Love the flank steak salad with 7 topping choices! I think the concept is great, too, altho the lines can get a bit outrageous in the Roseville store. I'm amazed they can turn a profit with as inexpensive as they are.
I think this is a decent alternative to a lot of fast-food places and nice if you're on a budget. They generally use fresh ingredients and the portions are nice size, but it's not like a restaurant.
i just tried it for the first time last nite. (palo alto location.) i got the mixed greens with plenty of crunchy fililngs and italian dressing. it wasn't the best salad i've had, but i like that you can customize it to your own likes and desires. i agree that it's a good alternative to fast-food places. the hot dishes look great and i hope to try it sometime soon!
Pluto's = updated, redux Hoffbrau. Essentially healthier comfort food with salads. Decent quality, casual, add-ons jack the bill up pretty fast.
