The salad looked good, but I made the mistake of going with the sandwich after being overwhelmed by the salad choices. The turkey was dry, the sandwich a little tasteless and underwhelming, despite a great description. I can't complain too much for the price (I was pretty fully afterwards) but I was a bit disappointed. And although the salads looked good, I'd probably pay a couple bucks more and just go to Fresh Tomatoes. I don't think Pluto's is sourcing organic or local, so not sure I'm willing to pay the premium. One of the cheaper places to eat in Palo Alto though, so it's still a viable choice. Oh yeah, by the way, frozen curly fries are still frozen curly fries, whatever you call them on your menu.

I had a great sandwich. The salads looked great. I will probably be back. Price is high as is the entire "University Ave area". It is very loud and hard to converse. Also, the tables are too close together, so you will get jostled a bit. It would be a great place to take a group of people as they can order custom salads and sandwiches and get what they like!

The options here are sandwiches and salads. 3 of the 4 of us had sandwiches that did not disappoint. The onion rings were good too. The one salad I saw at our table looked fresh and decently sized as well.

There were seating options to please all; inside, inside not in the main thoroughfare, and outside for those beautiful Palo Alto days, or days when you want good food and your dog is accompanying you.

Choose your own toppings - tons of fresh vegetables, nuts, fruits, etc. to go on your salad, plus either steak or portabello mushroom or something else (chicken? never had it but the first two are excellent). Lots of side dishes if anyone still has any room after the huge salads! Even a side salad is plenty.

Love the food here. Salads are great, but i like the sandwich better. The sandwiches are hot and they make it on demand.

Give it a go.
