Tom Brady Hates Salad Bars

September 17th, 2021

While many Golden Corral restaurants have reopened across the Tampa Bay area, the king of the Buccaneers doesn’t give a crap.

The man has no interest in grabbing a set of tongs and loading his plate with spring mix, sliced tomatoes and sliced avocados. Heck Tom Brady probably never would have even set foot in the Sweet Tomatoes on Dale Mabry Highway (may the chain rest in peace).

Brady made this clear on his Let’s Go! show on SiriusXM Mad Dog Radio this week. Here was his exchange with host Jim Gray.

Jim Gray: What salad bar item makes you the angriest?

Tom Brady: Oh, God. All of them. All of them. I just think all that stuff that’s been sitting out for hours (inhales deeply). Not my favorite. I’m not a big buffet-type place [guy] salad bar. No.

The great irony here is Brady is a Subway spokesperson. And anyone who has stepped in a Subway knows its sandwich toppings routinely sit around for many hours before a worker slaps them on a sandwich.

On a recent roundtable video, Brady was asked to name what five foods he would take to a deserted island. Brady refused to answer, citing how it would be all over social media.

Rob Gronkowski stepped in to say Brady definitely would bring mixed nuts and avocados, but Gronk was stumped there. A pensive Mike Evans, sitting next to Brady, said he has never seen Brady eat anything.

    Oh no…..I can see it coming…..”salad bar hating” added to the already ridiculously long monikers….

  2. stpetebucsfan Says:

    Brady has a great Subway commercial. I think Stephen Curry asks Brady…Tom you’re actually eating bread? Brady replies sarcastically…It’s a TV commercial.

    That’s how he gets away doing Subway. He makes it clear he doesn’t really eat there.

  3. Leighroy Says:

    Subway was a topic at the recent Tom Brady presser a day ago. He had the same response but it wasn’t sarcastic, and said he “doesn’t do bread.”

    Brady did say he lived on subway back in college tho. Hey, I lived on pizza rolls back in college and I’d be happy to endorse them too even if I wouldn’t touch one now!

  4. BA4President Says:

    stpetebucsfan is right. The fact that they called out that Tom is doing a commercial for something he wouldn’t eat, is what made the Subway commercial funny.

  5. Lordcornelius Says:

    Lol Brady doesn’t want to give up his competitive vampiric lifespan diet. Always looking for the competitive edge. And also yeah he probably can’t be honest about his real feelings for Subway / etc lol

    Go Bucs!

  6. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Ok, all of us who went to college lived on fast food and pizza. Let’s be honest. If you make the money Tom makes, there is really no reason to ever go to a buffet. Can you imagine him saying, “Giselle, can I get you another plate of mashed potatoes and gravy?”

  7. stpetebucsfan Says:

    So Tom demonstrates something very, very rare! No Subway pun but Tom remains hungry. He’s hungry for a certain kind of life.

    My son told me few years back that Dad you’ve paid your dues and made your bones. That means you can just sit out back and smoke weed the rest of your life. Sounds good but that’s not really how I look at life. YMMV

    I stop for long periods to train as much as possible for a 73 year old dude. The thrill of competition is now within me…me against myself. You all have the same opportunity. I get Brady and I don’t even make bucks for training hard and taking three months on a rigid diet. I simply like to see what’s left and what can I do.

  8. Irishmist Says:

    Lordcornelius has it right. Brady only feeds on the blood of his competitors.

  9. BucBrady Says:

    salad bars and buffets are gonna be scarce in a post-COVID world. And, that’s not bad thing.

    Anything that needs a sneeze guard is not a good idea….

  10. Roy T. Buford Says:

    At least Subway has lids on their stuff. And the food isn’t pre-tasted by a kid with a runny nose and dirty hands. Gotta get a Publix sub about 10am. Food is too mellow when the mayonnaise starts to yellow.

  11. Bucschamp Says:

    Tom also don’t eat W’s

  12. SB Says:

    @TBBF……..Unfortunately you are right. One more moniker to skip over.

  13. Wesley Says:

    Too good for a SALAD BAR come on Tom.

  14. James Walker Says:

    Subways are hit or miss. Some of them are terrible, some of them like the one near me gets locally grown organic produce. Plus, my wife works their part-time to make up for the fact she can’t make a living as a teacher. I know people who hate Subway who will eat sandwiches that my wife brings home.

  15. Andrew Says:

    Lord Cornelius and Irish Mist! Yes!! I love this dark image of TB12 only living on the defeated husks of his competitors! Halloween is coming… Let’s get a meme going of a menacing looking scowling Vampire Pirate Tom Brady baring open mouthed bloody fangs, the blood of his victims dripping from his tensed clutching (cause nobody is more CLUTCH than Tom Brady!) hands… Dark background, low-key (means dark, not laid-back) lit from below, a large high raised collared cape and tri-corner pirate hat, red Buccaneers uniform, full pads… C’mon! Artists? Photographers?? Let’s GOOOO! Go Bucs! BOO! Happy Halloween 🎃!

  16. BucsCoolade Says:

    I love salad bars.. I hate viral restrictions.. I can assess a foods freshness and quality. crispy greens , carrots sliced, onion , peppers , cheese, cukes. Grape tomatoes.. creamy ranch fresh ground pepper. Yum and super healthy.

    Buffet dinners can suk cuz they can go cold if they sit there.

    TBBF, thanks for giving Joe the idea, NOT!

    Avocado for the win

  20. Hodad Says:

    Last place you’ll see Brady is on line at Subway, or a salad buffet. But hey, I love the ads anyway.

  21. Oneilbuc Says:

    Who cares if he doesn’t like salad bars what’s so special about that ??

  22. unbelievable Says:

    They actually say in one of the subway commercials

    “You don’t even eat this stuff”


    It’s pretty funny. Not gonna lie though I was sick of seeing him on commercial after commercial by time it was halftime last Thursday.

  23. unbelievable Says:

    I also agree with O’Neil- who cares?

    Honestly couldn’t tell you the last time I ate at a salad bar either.

  24. Rod Munch Says:

    What kind of a man eats salad?

    The same kind of man that tosses them.

  25. Mike Johnson Says:

    To be honest who gives a deehyam what brady eats?
    Just keep winning man.

  26. David Says:

    The subway commercials are funny. With all the talk about him not eating bread, just making fun of that and saying “it’s a commercial” was brilliant

  27. Hodad Says:

    Good one Rod.

  28. Patrick Shea Says:

    Thanks,Tom. I don’t know why, I like U!
