Palo Alto: Pluto's; restaurant review

101 South

Pluto’s  482 University Ave./Cowper, (650) 853-1556.  L-D daily; $. 

Almost everything served here is made fresh in-house.  The procedure is to get a mini-menu and figure out what you want, then move around to the food stations.

Salads come in big and bigger with your choice of seven toppings and are tossed in a giant bowl right before your eyes.  Many people find that to be enough, but you might consider sharing a salad and also ordering to share a made-to-order sandwich on freshly baked bread or perhaps a few sides—mac & cheese, onion rings, or mashed potatoes with gravy.  A selection of housemade cakes and cookies provide a sweet conclusion.  In cold weather, avoid the wall-side tables by the front door unless you plan to remain bundled up.
