Great tasting salads. Large portions. Tried Jalapeno Hummus which came with bread and veggies. The summer salad was flavorful. The service is fast and friendly. More on the expensive side

I had the taco salad. It's vegetarian with very fresh ingredients. My husband had the daily special bacon steak and egg sandwich. It was excellent. All the food is fresh to the tee and the serving census fast and friendly. The kale salad is excellent. If you are looking for healthy and fresh this is your place

I went there with my mom for an early lunch and shared the Gulf shrimp and crab sandwich which was excellent! with a cup is lemon grass soup and a side of cauliflower tabouli. For some weird reason I had never been to any of the locations.. (well maybe bc I live in the suburbs) I'm so happy we did!... More

This is one of our favorites for a quick, healthy meal full of fresh ingredients and interesting flavors. I like the harvest salad with roasted brussels sprouts, while others in my family like the crispy chicken sandwich, the vegan taco salad, and other dishes. Nicely designed space, pleasant staff. I wish the cookies were tastier but otherwise we love this... More

Local foods has got a sandwich for everyone! They are so fresh and so unique! The atmosphere is great and the staff are always really friendly. They have this orange flavored soda that is the best I've ever had. The sandwiches can be made into salads and I often order the Garden Sammie as a salad with chicken on top.... More

I went to the Downtown location but don't see it listed - I think that location is fairly new. The restaurant was bright and airy, sleek yet comfortable. It smelled good, too. You place your order, pay, and then they bring it to your table. I tried the "cruchy" chicken sandwich and it was great (kind of messy eating, though).... More

I'm finishing my lunch at Local Foods as I write this and I felt compelled to write the review. I dove right in before snapping a picture, so excuse the photo of my half-eaten food. I ordered the turkey confit with quinoa and fruit. It's outstanding. I'm traveling through on business and I really wish we had one of these... More

I think I heard there a few locations. We were near Rice U. The soups sound unusual. Well they are. Great ingredients lovingly combined and so fresh your body thanks you for eating them. The Banh Mi was another favorite. Incredible value.

It is a great place if you like healthy, fresh, mostly locally sourced food. It is very conveniently located in Rice village and always offers various vegetarian dishes. When in Houston, I usually grab a quick lunch at Local Foods.
