Food is always great and the staff are really nice. I have meat loving friends who are always happy when they eat here, try the burgers and the desserts are really good too.

I have eaten here with my daughter a couple of times. She is an evangelical vegan and loves the place. I'd say that the food is about average in flavor and would not rate it as all that healthy considering how much is deep fried. All in all, if you want vegan choices, this is a good choice. If you...

Native foods serves really delicious vegan food that even diehard meat eaters will enjoy. The watermelon drink is delicious. I recommend the chicken run ranch burger for newbies.

I like to write positive reviews, especially for places in my home town. I went to Native Foods this weekend and ordered one of the specialty salads. It essentially had around a 1/2 cup of Quinoa, some romaine lettuce, jicama, raisins and a couple other things. Unfortunately, to characterize it as a "spicy" salad, they put a TON of chili... More

This place used to be horrible. It's a bit better but definitely still a low price establishment. If you want better Greek, Try Panini Cafe down the street.

The name of the restaurant attracted me, then, when I saw the menu, I was thrilled. Although not a complete vegetarian, I prefer eating veg meals when I eat out. The clever combinations of sauces, spices, veggies and grains, plus incredible uses of tofu and seitan (to look and taste like animal protein) were just delicious! They don't try to... More

Having been a vegetarian for 25 years it's been a chore to find a restaurant while traveling on business where my choices are not severely limited. Native Foods is the one place where it's difficult to choose because of having too many options. The mock meats may not have the right taste to those who regularly eat animal protein but... More

This reminds one of a college town place. Not slick and they maybe don't have all the polish of other places, but I like the food. Had the crunchy avocado wrap, made with some nice slaw. Fries were also good. They need a little help with the details but lots of people came in while we were there. They will... More

I love, love their Portabello Sausage Burger with Sweet Potato Fries.....It was easy to walk to from where I lived, so I did often.
