Salad Bars in Arlington?

sarahkt99 Jul 7, 2008 10:01 AM

My husband and I were curious if there are any salad bars in Arlington besides ithe ones in the grocery stores. Sometimes we just crave a salad bar, ever since the Orleans House closed we don't know where to go. Any suggestions?

    This may not be what your looking for but Ruby Tuesday's has a salad bar nonetheless.

      does 7 corners count? pistone's is the awesome.

      otherwsie, there are some pay by the pounds in ballston (in the mall and at the corner of randolph and fairfax) and at least one pay by the pound in rosslyn (cucu cafe)

        Joe's Pizza and Pasta on Lee Highway has a good lunch buffet that includes a nice salad bar and some pretty good minestrone.

          joe's salad bar is quite limited, however the tuna fish on there is so tuna-y tasty. fresh spinach, peppers, olives, mushrooms, etc. pretty good value.

          where is pistone's in 7 corners? is that the place right at the intersection and near grand mart?

            Yes, and finding the right one of the 7 corners to turn at, to get in there, will work up your hunger.

            I haven't been in years, but if it's as generous as it usedta be, it's quite a salad bar.

              i always wondered about that place....
              i thought it was some old run-down (ok, faded) italian place with a small local following (afternoon drinkers?)
              some imagination, huh?

              they have two different websites. prices seem reasonable. anyone been lately? and a country and western band on friday nights!

          Not a restaurant salad bar, but Chopt in Rosslyn is a fast food type joint where you can create your own salad. I haven't been but I've heard it's pretty good. Might satisfy your salad fix.
