PLUTO'S -- (Palo Alto, CA)

Pluto's puts all fast food places to shame, serving fresh made-to-order salads, grilled meats, excellent side dishes and the oh so delicious garlic fries. It was one of favorite restaurants when I was up in Davis. I used to buy a sandwich or salad on the walk home from school.

On the left, Pluto's East Wings (Hot BBQ Buffalo). My favorite hot wings, spicy with the right crunch. On the right, Pluto's West Wings (California Honey Mustard).

Pluto's has a fresh salad bar where you can choose all these different toppings and the chef will toss the salad for you. This is the farmer's greens with marinated flank steak (cooked fresh on the grill for you) with sweet corn, plum tomatoes, red onions, oranges, cucumbers, sweet walnuts and crunchy croutons. Served with freshly baked herbed foccacia bread.

Saturn's Garlic Potato rings. Essentially, curly fries tossed with lots and lots of fresh garlic! It's MARVELOUS! Below is a grilled marinated flank steak sandwich with sourdough bread, mixed greens, light garlic mayonnaise and plum tomatoes.
