Not good. Bun dry. Meat had no flavor. Pricey for the taste. Maybe they were having an off day. Wife had same comment about her Evo.

We got the evo burger with tempeh and the evo chick'n burger and the mystic monk shake-- tip-- if you don't want the shake too sweet, opt for without agave.. the banana makes the shake sweet enough. Great place, definitely returning!

First time here. Hubs had the mushroom Swiss burger which was seriously to die for! Sooo good. The "cheese" was creamy and delicious. I had the carne burrito. Really good flavors and spice. I didn't much car for the French fries that were inside it...More
