Respond to Review of The Veggie Grill - Long Beach
Review: Veggie grill is really one of my favorite places. The only downside was that it was always away from where I needed to be so when this location opened up in LB (where I spend most weekends), I was counting down the days and was there at the door at it's preview opening, begging for them to open up already! After the place opened up for real, I brought my teammates there, a pack of hungry omni/carnivores and was delighted to find that they all enjoyed their lunches (almost) as much as I did :) Places like Veggie Grill make me happy that there are tasty places to further the acceptance of herbivory...I finally have a place where friends will feel like they can have a clean and healthy meal yet feel satisfied, and best of all, I can eat with them, stuffing my veggie tummy with food I want! And everything on the menu is something I want. I have now gone back to this location, sometimes with coveted coupons and introduced veggie food to no-longer-reluctant customers. For those hesitant to try veggie meats, the portobello burger has been a hit, for those who want a refreshing introduction to a few mock meats, I like the chopped salad that's a mix of a few. In between, there are the standard "fast food" diner type favorites like hot wings and fries, but the side of kale salad (surprisingly ok for skeptics, it's got a tasty dressing) reminds everyone that your arteries will thank you for switching things up to the veggie side. Thumbs up, I can't believe it took me this long to write a review.
