This is my "neighborhood" Whole Foods and the place I come to for hard-to-find specialty items, beer, wine and organic foods. I also enjoy their hot food bar, though some of their other stores (Arroyo Pkwy, Glendale, for example) have a much larger selection of prepared food items than this one does. Still, though a bit pricey, I do enjoy shopping here from time to time and have actually found good deals on organic produce from time to time.
I have to admit, I go to Whole Foods for lunch all the time, even though it is a tad pricey. They have a great variety of foods on the salad bar, hot bar, and soup bar - plus even more selections at their prepared food counter. Don't expect it all to be good for you - they do a pretty great fried chicken and mashed potatoes on the hot food bar. They also have a great selection of frozen foods if you have a microwave at your office. And for the occasional dinner, their produce and fish section are absolutely wonderful - but pricey.
It might be a bit cost-prohibitive for every day shopping, but for the occasional organic food, homeopathic remedy or decent craft beer, Whole Foods is definitely a great place to shop. Also, though not as large as other locations, their hot food bar, salad bar and deli counter have great ready-to-eat selections as well. In recent months the quality and variety of the beers they sell has decreased a bit, but all in all this is still one of the best places in town to sample a new brew or two. Just beware the crazy parking lot. In fact, you'll find more space if you park in back near Chuck-E-Cheese and Rite Aid, and simply walk down the ramp to the lower level and hang a left to go to Whole Foods.

This is a really nice Whole foods, don't get me wrong. There is everything you could ever want here. My only beef with this place it that it might be too large. The lines were kind of outrageous. It's the size of a really big Vons or Ralph's. Which is probably great for alot of people, just not me. I prefer the one on Glendale Ave. I will say this; they have a superb variety of pasta at the foothill location. Either way, with whole foods, you can't really go wrong.

This is a nice whole foods, not too big, not too small. As with most, the produce is amazing, meats are well cut and service always helpful. Of course, you're paying for the quality, but I don't mind that piece of mind. Even on the most crowded of days, lines aren't that long or they just move extremely fast. There's also a Jamba Juice inside for cool sippin treats while you shop.
