Respond to Review of CLOSED: VG Burgers
Review: We visit Boulder every year or two, and we just returned to VG Burgers for the first time since before the move to the new location. It has changed noticeably, but we still like it quite a bit. There are too few restaurants in the world that share VG's commitment to compassion and sustainability, and that's very unfortunate. Organics and eco-friendliness alone would keep us coming back to VG at least now and then even if the food were only OK. But, for us, VG Burgers is a real treat. Both then and now, we have found the staff to be warm, friendly, and helpful, and the food to be tasty and well-conceived. As a burger joint, it isn't exactly the pinnacle of healthy dining, but as far as burger joints go, it's probably as good as it gets. We must confess: Even as pretty health-conscious vegans for over a decade, sometimes we do enjoy the indulgence of a tasty organic veggie burger and a really good (non-dairy) milkshake. If you do too, the odds are pretty good you'll appreciate VG Burgers. If burgers conjure the image of a 99-cent meal, then keep in mind this is not McD's. VG Burgers serves real food, made from mostly organic and high-quality ingredients, and they go the extra mile to do things responsibly. So, the price we pay here is what we consider "the real cost of real food," with no corner cutting at the expense of people, animals, or the environment. That's a price we're delighted to pay. We would love to see the return of a greater selection of non-fried items. We would be even more excited about coming (and bringing friends and family) if the menu had a few more healthful options. Keep up the great work!
