Quick vegan food

The owner was friendly and there was a selection of packaged raw food for grab and go as well as a vegan menu if burgers chicken sandwiches and smoothies. Most items are less than $9 with tax.

Love that you have a drive thru! I had the "Buffalo Wing" strips. These were delicious as was the "ranch" dressing. The wait time was very short.

This was an ideal stop for me. The food is vegan and the choices are vast, but vegan isn't necessarily confused with totally health conscious. They certainly have those choices, but there are also delicious burgers and fries to be had. So glad I stopped!

Everything here was delicious, we ordered a bunch of different burgers, fries, chicken fingers, and some shakes. The creamy chipotle sauce was the best. Wish there could be more all over the country. We went through the drive through and the service was quick.

Fresh and quick :) Very reasonable prices. Big menu with all sorts of raw and cooked options. Great shakes and desserts as well. Outdoor patio seating with parking lot and drive thru! Must for vegans on vacation in San diego.

The chocolate cookie was fudge and great! The vegetarian chicken wrap was tasty, and a good size for a light lunch. They keep a grab-and-go refrigerated unit stocked, and you can drive up and order. Friendly place for pretty good vegetarian food.

I was in San Diego for three days and ate here three times. It would have been 4 times but Google listed their closing hours wrong (!!!). (They close at 8pm in the winter). I had the buffalo sandwich each time but the strawberry shake, cookies, raw tacos, and friends were all good too. I hope they expand as fast... More

Over the past year, my husband and I have become vegan and it has been hard to find a good restaurant that actually caters specifically to vegans in San Diego. First impression is that it could use a serious remodel. When you walk in, they have a small area of bar seating along the windows and two refrigerated cases with... More
