Respond to Review of The Cove

Review: I just moved to San Antonio, and was happy to find this place near my neighborhood. I took an out-of-town guest (who eats meat) there because they have both meat and vegan options, and I was able to pitch it well since one of their (meat) burgers was voted #5 in the Top 50 Best Burgers by Texas Monthly magazine in 2009. In fact, the atmosphere is so unique that my guest kept asking if I knew of any place like it in our home state, even before tasting the food! The vegan menu seems to be more extensive than what is listed online because I ordered a vegan bacon cheeseburger that I found written on a vegan menu chalkboard inside the restaurant. I am really impressed that they make their own thin crispy tofu bacon, rice/bean burgers, and spicy cashew cheese- so nothing is from a package here! Also, they had big, thick vegan snickerdoodle cookies the day I went, which I was told sell fast, so be sure to order your vegan dessert when placing your meal order. Oh, and try out their homemade ginger ale- it is awesome and fresh tasting! Everything is served in plastic baskets like a diner and the whole place is just very relaxed...seems to be really popular with families with kids, and dog owners. Just be aware that when you go looking for this place, keep a look-out for a carwash! It is all connected with the restaurant, along with a laundromat, haha! I can't wait to try out the "Vegan Night" next month and hoping to meet other like-minded people there.
