Living in Easton, I like to try all of the newer places that open there. River Grille is ok, used to be better, my wife and I still like to go to Sette Luna and Valenca. Haven't tried Ocean yet, but have heard good things.

There are a few places that are painfully over-rated also though. Tried Kome, Melt, and Shula's all located in the Promenade over the holidays, all of which we felt wasn't worth the price at all.

Never been to Tijuana Flats (I think there is one about an hour away close to Philly?), but we like Cactus Blue. We ONLY have the Chile Relleno there though, so I can't really comment on there other stuff.

If you live in Easton, you need to try Mex Tex Trio. It's about a half block or so around the corner from Sette Luna on 3rd St. Friends and I have been patronizing it since it opened over a year ago and always have a good meal. Very reasonable prices too!

Been there twice but don't like it for some reason.

It tastes like upgraded Taco Bell food.

I've had had the Chile Rellenos, Quesadillas, and Burritos.

Personally I like Cactus Blue much better.

We're going to the Bethlehem Diner on Catasauqua Rd to see how theirs is. We have always had breakfast there and was great.

Wow, you must be going to the wrong places then. Do you only go to chains? Chain restaurants are terrible. There are a lot of great restaurants in the Lehigh Valley. What are you looking for?

Bethlehem Diner off airport Road has a soup and salad bar. The big difference between this and other diners is the quality of the soup/salad bar. Clean, fresh, and decent choices. I had choice of three different soups and several different lettuces.

Buffets (outside of Chineses Restaurants) in general are not as common in the Lehigh Valley as they are out West. Garden Family Chinese Restaurant 2915 Schoenersville Road (near route 22) has a lunch buffet $5.50 from 11:30AM to 1:30PM.

There is a nominally Chinese Buffet all day in the Westgate Mall (also on Schoenersville Road about 1 mile south of route 22). It has extensive non-Chinese items including a good selection of soups, salads, and fruits. It has different prices, but it is about $6.50 for weekday lunch (green tea is free).

I have to agree with this comment. The lack of chains means there is good quality food at low prices.

Interestingly enough, that one post you quoted was the ONLY post from Florida Boy on this site!

There are lots of great places for soup and salad though. I say we keep on talking!

I disagree about the chains as far as soup goes, I like Panera Breads's soup and their breads and the one salad I had from them was pretty darn good too. I generally prefer local places for dinner, but I'm not so picky for lunches.

The thing I hate about Panera is that they are SO expensive. Their salads are fairly good though, I agree.

I was beyond excited when they opened Zoup! on Airport Road, but I've since realized that I can make most of the soups they have to offer, which is a bummer. (Not that I can make them, but that they don't offer more variety.)

I think PacoMartin mentioned this already, but a lot of diners in the region seem to offer salad bars, albeit a lot of them seem to be somewhat small.
