I have got to find better lunch options than what we've got on our rotation but I work in chain hell (Ballantyne/Charlotte). I noticed a new place that opened up right by my office called "Salad Creations". I could tell by the name and the signage that it is a chain and it is, but it looks interesting. Anyone been? Are the fixings fresh? Is it a rip off?
It's fresh and good. Salads are big, and you get to choose everything, including your type of lettuce. I've had better salad ingredients only at a few places, and it's definitely better than Sweet Tomatoes.
My only minus for Salad Creations is the salad dressings are good but not stellar, but I don't like a lot of dressing on my salad anyway. If you prefer your salad drenched, you might be more disappointed.
Here's their menu, looks good. we've had one where I live for about a year, haven't tried it yet, maybe this summer. I don't know how long it will last. In my area it's mostly pizza, wings and stuff with lot's of cheese sauce that sells, along with lot's of fast food.
