Better than Subway for sure

Very interested creation that wraps all veggies in a roll for a quick bite. Healthy is the key so this beats up the Fast Food garbage.

This is all Vegan. You don't have to ask for the ingredients, it is all cruelty-free. It is also fast, so you don't have to wait long. But, it tastes good and you can get a veggie burger or salad or just awesome fruit drinks, etc. There are many different styles for different tastes. I got the blackened tempeh burger... More

This is a great place for vegans. Delicious food, self serve style in a nice setting. We were here for lunch. The food is prepared quickly.

We have loved Veggie Grill for years, even before we became vegetarians. I love Papa's Portobello and sweet potato fries, and my hubby's go-to is the Thai Chikn Salad. I wish they would open a Newport Beach location!

Ok, so it looks like a Carls Jr inside, but it's far from it. You order at the counter and there are menuboards. But your great tasting fresh food is cooked to order and comes on a real plate. I'm not a vegan or even a vegetarian, so I stick to the real vegetable items on the menu intead of... More

My sister was the one who suggested that we eat at Veggie Grill because she always enjoys trying something new (she's from LA so she knows other Veggie Grill locations and got me to try it). I ordered one of the burgers because that's my go to when I enter a new restaurant and I was pretty pleased with how... More

If you are a fan of orange "chicken" you must try crispy cauliflower. It is a starter but order and enjoy as entree. Street corn is good too as is "chicken" tortilla soup. Most things here are tasty.

Wish there were more places like this for those wanting good vegetarian/vegan food. The servings are decent size and the large menu has lots of delicious items to choose from. We liked most of what we ordered, although no one in our group liked the Harvest Bowl, which was a new item. It just was not flavored well at all.... More

I guess it's the trend now. Like Pieology, you pick the ingredients and they cook it. I love this place. Nice, clean, trendy restaurant with plenty of seats and great service. The food is excellent too.

We went there for an early dinner. I ordered Santa Fe chicken burger with a side of onion rings on the recommendation of one of the staff who spotted us and was prompt to help. My husband wasn't hungry and just had mac-n-cheese and lemonade. The place is contemporary and has really nice outside seating. We loved the setting and... More
