“Vegan Bacon Cheeseburger!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

I came to this restaurant solely for the vegan bacon cheeseburger. It's really hard to find ummy veggie/vegan options at restaurants. I must say that this was the best vegan (and vegetarian for that matter) burger I've ever had. There are other veggie and GF options as well. The burger had by my partner was very good as well. The restaurant is certainly family friendly and quirky. Also love that they source the food locally. Definitely a must try if you haven't been.

“Playground for the kids!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

This is great lunch spot for people with kids! They have a nice outdoor playground were you can watch the kids run around and entertain themselves while you wait for the food. The beef is grass-fed, the produce local and organic and they've got vegetarian and vegan options too. Pretty cool, especially in San Antonio. They even have Maine Root sodas!
I've worked my way through the menu and can honestly say everything is good. I've been coming here for years and have never had a bad meal, that says a lot about how they run this place.

“Good Lunch!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

We stopped here one afternoon after visiting the Missions in the San Antonio area. It is an interesting place, concrete floors next to a car wash and laundry mat. Lots of room and a playground for children to run and play! We had cheese burger/fries and a fish taco with spring salad. We would try it again!
