I am not a vegan lover but my family convinced me to try. I had a great milkshake and sweet potato fries. My wrap was faux meat with French fries in the wrap. It was OK but not to my liking

This place looks like it was built into an old gas station. The seating is 99% outside and the service is slow- but that's a good thing. They make everything to order and it's worth the wait. For my dollar Evolution is the best vegetarian...More
