The Salad Spot (Boca Raton)
***** The Salad Spot, 690 Yamato Road, Boca Raton, Florida 33431, (561) 997-0039.
Right off the bat, let me start by saying that it wasn’t Jeff Eats’ idea to try The Salad Spot in Boca Raton. To be more precise, it was Mrs. Jeff Eats and Daughter Jeff Eats’ idea. Now with “that” out of the way…last week the three of us caught lunch at The Salad Spot. To sum the joint up, a huge help yourself salad bar that features-I’m guessing at least 70 different items that you “build” your own salad from -at $7.49 lb…throw in a handful of soups, wraps and prepared salads and you got the picture. Fast-food type seating inside and outside.
Now nothing for nothing, but you guys do know that Jeff Eats’ food of choice- is Carnival Food…burgers, French fries, pizza, onion rings, bbq ribs, sausage & onions sub, carmel corn, cotton candy, candied apples, fried anything!
Now back to The Salad Spot…
Jeff Eats thought that The Salad Spot had a terrific selection of “rabbit” stuff…that the joint was spotless…and that the Italian meatball soup/grilled chicken salad-green peppers-red onions- honey wheat wrap were quite tasty.
The verdict…As Mikey’s brother once said, “Mikey likes it!”
So…to all you vegans (I do- believe that’s what some of you vegetarians are calling yourselves these days),”healthy” eaters and gluten free guys, don’t say that Jeff Eats’ never did anything for you!
Jeff Eats can’t quite let this one go just yet…you vegans, “healthy” eaters and gluten free guys really have no idea as what you are missing–not devouring a fried Twinkie topped with chocolate ice cream, a mound of whipped cream and bacon bits.

The Salad Spot is open Monday-Thursday 10am-5pm, Friday 10am-3:30pm, closed Saturday and Sunday.
Tried to visit at lunchtime today only to find it is closed until 2 January.
I’ll take that twinkle!!!
Some foodie you are, it’s Twinkie not a Twinkle.
The difference between a vegan and a vegetarian is that vegans eliminate all animal products from their diet, including dairy and eggs. Those following a vegan lifestyle generally do not wear leather and avoid products made from animals such as wool, silk and down. Vegans’ tremendous compassion for animals is an abiding, overriding conviction in their lives.
Just read your comments.
I know “name” you Jeff Eats’ official researcher.
Thanks for reading…
i think the word you are looking for is gluten not glutton. glutton is a whole different thing, but may fit as well.
Just had a chance to read your comments.
I now appoint you, OFFICIAL JEFF EATS’ PROOFREADER.
You must be a “gluten” for punishment, but the job is yours.
Thanks for reading…
Tried for lunch today. It is a simple enough concept but hard to execute well.
Important for the selection to be kept looking fresh and to have some unexpected good-surprise items. However, several of the items were over-dressed (why not let customers add dressing for themselves?) and a few looked tired.
The good-surprise point gets to the issue of the flat rate pricing because perhaps this precludes premium pricing for premium items. For example, there could have been beef or duck salad items which might have
raised the bar.
Also, a bit concerned about what happens if it is wet from rain or just too hot (summer weather) to want to sit outside. These turn the place into take-out only.
Overall though, liked it enough to want to return and try items we missed out on this time.
This rabbit food place is one of the best in Boca. Although Houston’s and Cheesecake in my opinion make the best salads which brings me to another point. Jersey Gourmet Market (Yamato +Boca Raton blvd) unbelievable salads but even better is their Pulled Pork Sandwich, Fried Ravioli, Steak Sub, and Gooey butter cake. The owner is from St Louis and brought some of his specialties. He walks around giving you samples as well. A few doors away is Boca’s best chinese takeout from Long Island ( Chef tais) its a real joint but the chef is from Uncle Tais in Boca Center.
Good eating !
