Marie Callender's Torrance Reviews
Salads to Pies at Marie Callender's Jun 13, 2013
Marie Callender's is a chain of coffee shops and general restaurants in ten Western states. The chain is most famous for its homemade style pies and began as a pie shop.
The Marie Callender's in Torrance is typical of the chain, but is open only for lunch and dinner. Main courses to sandwiches and burgers are available on the menu. I ordered a Callender's Cheeseburger with French Fries and a Salad Bar. (The salad bar is available for a nominal additional chage with all entrees.)
I thought the Salad Bar was very good. It was well stocked and fresh with a variety of lettuce and greens and items I like to find on a salad bar. I did not like the burger as well. It was rather "mushy" with the cheese completely melted and dripping all over it. Not the way I like a burger.
A slice of pie came with the combination platter. I selected a cherry pie and Marie Callender lived up to the name in this department.
A good option for a general sit-down resturant. I'd want the salad bar again.
