Salad bars are common across the USA, and are favored by eaters who like to pick and choose their salad items, then come back for more. Salad lovers control their destiny by being able to create their ultimate salad depending on their mood and the number of choices on the salad bar.
The salad bar started sometime in the mid 20th Century, but exactly where is lost to history. Some believe Chuck’s Steak and Seafood of Hawaii was an early adopter with a very small salad bar of lettuce and a few toppings. Rich Melman opened his salad bar in Chicago in RJ Grunts with a kitchen too small for a salad station, making a salad bar in the dining room a necessity. Others say the salad bar started in the 1960s in the Steak and Ale chain, or at Freund’s Sky Club Supper Club in Wisconsin.
Regardless of where it began, the salad bar evolved from a few choices intended to keep customers satisfied until the main course arrived to a custom operation with dozens of choices allowing customers to eat their fill before the dinner arrives. The salad bar now means hot items as well as cold in many restaurants, and there are some chains offering what in effect is a salad bar providing many full dinner options.
