    Default Whole Foods

    I don`t know if this is a chain of stores or not - I`m in NJ. I went
    there today for lunch and it was really good! (I`ve been ill awhile and
    just starting to get an appetite back). They have a large selection of
    fresh sandwiches, soups, salads, etc in the eatery - and amazing looking
    pizza of all different types. Huge slices, too. Tables and booths to sit
    in. I had a chicken soup and a piece of pepperoni stromboli and my mom
    had a chili and a slice of pizza. It`s not cheap, but it`s a really nice
    store, IMO - I recommend it!

    Fairly wide-spread, started right around here in California, I believe.

    AKA Whole Paycheck Market by some, but agreed, they have a good
    selection of products, and if whole (natural) or organic foods are
    important to you, it's a great place to shop. The deli stuff is fairly
    expensive, but every now and then we splurge for a pick-up dinner...

    I guess Google is too complex for WebTVers.

    Yes, it is a chain. We went there for the first time a few months ago. It
    is not the place to buy your regular staples every week, but they do have
    some foods not found elsewhere. Some are over priced, but others are well
    in line for what you get. It is my first choice for fresh fish and they
    have a great cheese selection.

    Another example of how WebTV'ers are out of touch with the rest of
    the world.

    It's an Austin-based chain: http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/.

    Did you or didn't you wonder? Why are you asking us if you wondered?

    It is a chain, often referred to here as "Whole Paycheck".

    Here in Austin they can't compare in price to any regular grocery
    store. Pretty much everything except beer and bread is on average,
    twice as expensive at WF.

    I go there about twice a month for a couple slices of their "hearth
    baked" pizza. I always get an attitude when I ask for it reheated
    in their brick oven for "no less than 60 seconds" ("But sir, it's
    already hot". "No, it's lukewarm... It always is. That's why I
    asked you to re-heat it...".

    The pizza really is good when it's hot and crusty. But don't let
    'em try and serve it to lukewarm.

    Ah yes. I remember that sleezy tactic. WF needs competition.

    The girl behind the counter asked us if we wanted it heated a bit, we
    didn`t have to ask for it.

    Yep. He's a dirtbag of the first order, greed and avarice being his raison
    d'Ítre. Granted, he has a few decent products in his stores, but for the most
    part, it's over-hyped and insanely over-priced. I avoid WF like the plague.
