Respond to Review of The Veggie Grill - Irvine Spectrum
by Sonja and Dirk
Review: This was our first time at this location as we were meeting out of town friends there, but it's as tasty and clean as the other locations. Also, it was super easy to find. It's right when you leave the main parking structure and enter the Spectrum near the carousel. Everyone can see it and try it! And this location has lots of outdoor patio seating. As for the food, I tried a salad for the first time as I have always gotten a burger before. The chop chop salad was hearty with tempeh and quinoa in it, but I would have preferred regular ranch dressing to the chipotle version, but that's just me. Dirk had the Carne Asada (always a good choice) with a side of kale. Their kale really rocks. Our friend thought so too as that was her side as well. We split the nachos and mac 'n cheese and while the nachos are good, the mac is SO amazing. OMG! Our friends had the cajon bayou and chiptole BBQ burgers and finished every last bit of their food along with those awesome sweetheart fries. I really love Veggie Grill for its all-American food and I'm always happy to see them in such mainstream places. They were definitely busy and I don't know anyone who doesn't like them. I know non-veg people who found the chain on their own and not through me. That's how good it is!
