Well, I finally went yesterday...it is smaller than a Sun Harvest, but very, very similar. I generally buy non-oprganic, so I can't speak to the variety, but they did have a nice selection of produce. Pricing just like Sun Harvest, sharper than the other grocery stores on some items, more expensive on others. Lots of bulk items. Gorgeous meat, seafood, and poultry, although I did not need any. I will definately stop by frequently (mainly because I go past every day )

Thumbs UP!!

So, is the consensus that this place was over hyped? Or does it measure up to what you all expected?

I went there a couple of days ago and bought the BEST tuna for sashimi I've ever purchased anywhere. The rest of their meat and fish looked equally excellent.

Also, in case anyone is interested, across the street (Huebner & Stone Oak) is a very small Indian and Pakastani market that sells incredible "halal" (like kosher, I think) chicken. I've gone back and purchased more after cooking up the first batch. The store's near India Taj Palace in the same shopping center.

Stopped in on Sunday. Place was small but had good selection, especially vitamins and health-oriented food. Though they carried Akaushi meat, the other cuts were fair - likely prefer HEB on that issue. Seafood was nicely priced though hard to detect issues when looking through glass. It should do well as a stop and shop quickly - compared to hour long process when heading to HEB. I wish the Judge best of luck.

I tried there barbecue marinated chicken and it was excellent.

The other half had the apple cinnamon crusted chicken breast and it was also pretty good. (i cooked it and stole a taste)

My DH and I stopped by Tuesday morning. We were let down by their prices(Very High).We bought a pound of bulk popcorn, a couple of ears of corn, and some pineapple juice, and it was $15. We will continue to shop at Wholefoods.

Ok, the Wolffs and Turner did not get rich by selling things at a reasonable price
