I shop at this HEB at least once a week and each and every week, though I ask the packers to pack my bags light (I am an 80 year female and I have to unload those bags when I get home!) they never do. I believe it is a lack of proper training in customer satisfaction and I suggest to the supervisors that they look into this practice. Just now they had put a half gallon milk, a large bottle of lemonade plus two large bottles of Dr. Pepper in the same bag. Give me a break!
If you're looking for variety for lunch, Whole Foods is the place to go. There's something for everyone, from a gigantic salad bar to pizza and sandwiches, tacos, a grill and international cuisine. Especially when it's a pay per pound system, things can add up fast. My favorite cost control measure is to get a pre-made sandwich. The Barton Springs, with turkey, fresh greens, brie cheese and fig jam, is perfectly satisfying and under $7.
The Highland market is the best convenience store experience you'll ever find. Its a nice clean store was clean restrooms and friendly employees Who are also helpful as well as knowledgeable. It's the only store my family uses.
