Respond to Review of The Veggie Grill - Santa Monica
Review: I had read about this place on happycow when it first opened and have eaten here many times. Here's my The Veggie Grill review. First came here in December 2010 when this Veggie Grill location had just opened. Last trip here was this week, September 2012. What I like about the Veggie Grill is the consistency in the food taste. I can always expect good taste each time. The quality control is quite incredible. The owners have really streamlined all the Veggie Grill locations, which I believe is a major key to their success. Same decor, same menu, and good taste that's delivered consistently. I especially like the sweet potato fries with the creamy dressing, the big fat onion rings with a creamy ranch sauce, the Santa Fe crispy chickn burger, and the tempeh burger (forgot the name). The batter fried chickn tenders/fingers are yummy, and the lemonade is very refreshing. Good cookies, too. My daughter and I also went in for the kids burger meal launch. I got myself a Bali Bliss (blackened tempeh burger) and for her the kids burger menu -- the burger is the same patty as the VG burger patty but without all the fancy stuff, just pickles. I took out the pickles, and my little girl enjoy it. Kids menu come with choice of side (we got sweet potato fries), choice of cold drink, and a little cookie. The food is highly addictive and be a bit decadent (fried stuff and sweet stuff), but that's why we like it. If you want to be good, then order the salads or the non-fried stuff. The people here are doing an amazing job.
