“Yummy!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 February 2013

Salad bar CANNOT be beat! Simply the best salad you will ever eat because you can choose the way it is made. Mixed in dressing makes every bite worth taking. Their chili is PHENOMENAL. They offer you additives for it,as well...Including sour cream! How wonderful.

“Great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 February 2013

This is a place where you order and take out or eat there. It has great salads, sandwiches, soups, as well as food available to take hoe for dinner. It is not a luxury dining experience but great food for a deli!

“Great variety!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 January 2013

I went to Palmer's for lunch with a group of co-workers. The place was hopping at lunch time, but everything moved at a good place.

They have great variety here. Lots of different salads, sandwiches and soups.

It is much like a Panera or other type like that, but better! It is cafeteria style so be prepared to walk around to get your different items.

“Love their salads!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 January 2013

Palmer's makes all of their sandwiches and salads right in front of you. They are always fresh and delicious! Even the regular size salad is pretty large. I had to take some home last time. Try it - you'll love it! Either location.
