Respond to Review of Pneumatic Diner
Review: I admit: I live in San Francisco and I am completely spoiled by vegan food. That being said: this place...sucks. It's not good. Sure, about 10% of the menu is "decent," but the other half is just sad. Not very much of the menu is vegan, either, and since this is one of the VERY few places to find such food in Reno. I got a calzone. Let me make this clear: a calzone is NOT mushed up fake meatballs and sauce in a wheat tortilla wrap. I got a shake. It was almost as watery as soymilk - although the taste was fantastic. The boy got his "regular" (he lives there): a meatball sub. It was an open-faced sandwich that didn't look very appealing. Also: what kinda joint that caters to vegans lacks simple basics (that are NOT hard to prepare); tofu scramble, for example. Service was pretty shoddy, too, and we waited for about 45 minutes on a Saturday morning to eat here. There was no system, really, besides pure honesty by those waiting to be seated. We had to wait forever for a glass of water. Eventually, we just got it ourself from the bar. The joint is tiny and everything is cooked in the morning downstairs and then microwaved to order upstairs. Sadly, this is the ONLY place of it's kind in Reno. If I lived here, I would probably (begrudgingly) be there frequently. If you have no other options, by all means: go.
