Nothing to write home about... – The service sucks. I won't go back, even though it's one of a handful of vege restaurants in the area. Bland food too. Yawn. The seating wa pretty bad too (outside).
Good Vegan Fare, Not Great – This place has an AWESOME menu w/a huge selection. But I haven't had anything delicious there. It all seemed a little bland. And I eat health food all the time, it doesn't have to be so flat. But high marks for such great concoctions, relatively cheap, and super fast.
Great Food! – I have visited this restaurant for many years and have never been disappointed. The food is delicious and filling. The air fries are the best I have ever tasted. The only thing that would make it better would be indoor dining. I highly recommend this restaurant.
Veggie Delightful – It's wonderful to see a place that can cater to the "Once Were Meat-Eaters" crowd. The food was good and the prices reasonable... the decor however needs an upgrade...but I'd still recommend it highly!
Cheap vegetarian eats. – Good vegetarian food, but be aware it tends toward imitating meat-like foods with things like soy-based meats and cheeses. If you like this kind of thing, you won't be disappointed; they do a good job of incorporating the soy meats into burritos and burgers quite well. The soy-cheese is very apparent on their pizzas. But if you hate soy cheese and soy meats, this place will not convert you. The oven-baked fries are seasoned well and worth the trip.
orean rules – located in a veritable meat lover's alley (mcdonalds, carl's jr, KFC, roscoe's, taco bell, burger king), orean shines as a beacon of good health.
if you've never been, introduce yourself to the veggie fastfood with a "salad burger" -- a mound of beans, sprouts, bean sprouts, and veggies jammed in an organic whole weat bun. quite tasty and filling. treat yourself to a non-dairy soy milkshake or soy ice cream on hot days. you won't be able to tell the difference between the soy version and the full fat cow version. get some heart healthy air-baked french fries on the side.
all the food is tasty, but they excel at the imitation fast food (hot dogs, hamburgers, the chicken 'o burger, etc.). honorable mention goes to the falafel.
i wish there more around town.
