vegheads. i wanted to love you but i didn't.

i really wanted to love vegheads. planning our trip to asheville this year, we were excited to try out a new veg place. the menu was a bit limited for vegans, but that didn't throw us. i was super-excited about trying their "fast food" burger, and i found a side (other than chips) that didn't have onions (i'm not a fan at all). so we rolled up, got two mountain burgers, two sides of peanut pasta salad, and a cookie. $27, which i normally wouldn't complain about at all.
but the food wasn't great. the mountain burger was loaded with cumin, which is a spice i personally cannot stand. i wasn't able to eat it at all, but my wife ate hers and said it was a basic, old-school veggie burger. not great, not terrible. i figured i'd eat both our pasta salad sides, but unfortunately, they were loaded with onions, though onions were not at all on the list of ingredients (i always double-check since i detest them so). that left me with the cookie. it was double chocolate, and the chocolate chips were so old that they were almost white. very disappointing.
i'm not the type to complain usually about ANY place that serves vegan food (seeing as i live in an area where the closest veg restaurant is over an hour away), but this was definitely an unfortunate dining experience. kudos for the great idea of a veg drive-thru. just need to maybe update the menu to include the correct ingredients. and maybe increase the vegan options.
it's a veggie drive-thru
food was not great, ingredient list not true to dish
