Green is Good, Green is Great

Even if this wasn't the only entirely vegan restaurant in the area, it still would be the best. I honestly can't believe some of the negative reviews on here, but Green really isn't meant to please high-maintenance, food snobs or even just plain snobs. I really appreciate a place where I can see that the employees enjoy their work and are treated well by the employer. The customer is definitely not always right. If you are entitled and enjoy being waited on hand and foot, this is not the place for you. There are enough places on this earth that serve the meat-eating, consumer-driven society, so let Green be!
That said, the staff at Green actually treats their customers very nicely and will help you with any questions you have about their menu and vegan eats in general. They'll bring your food to you very quickly, even during the lunch rush. I've always found the place to be very clean, bright and open with great, funky decor. There are couches, tons of four-person tables, one mess-hall length table for large groups, and recently installed booths! They also have a small, but GOOD, selection of groceries (soy curls, nacho cheese, mac n cheese makings, vegan jerky, vegan cheese, vegan marshmallows). Also, great selection of indie and organic sodas (Jones, agave cola).
Green features tons of Americanized ethnic cuisine (Indian, Chinese, Italian) and good old diner favorites (Buffalo chicken, BBQ, chili fries). Whether you are looking for junk food like burgers and shakes or healthier meals like salads and fresh fruit, you can find it at Green! Their faux-meats are INCREDIBLE. I even got my meat-loving dad to eat a bbq chicken pizza with jalapenos and soy cheese. I've also seen a lot of families with small children come in and the kids seem to love the chicken. Even saw some little ones eating edamame! If they don't want that, there's no way they'll turn down a tsoynami, the vegan version of a Dairy Queen blizzard. Tons of flavors to choose from! You can even customize your own! Also have iced coffees and almond shakes in chocolate, vanilla and strawberry. I honestly think there is something wrong with you if you don't like Green. I adore it and it has certainly helped me in my veganism. I think the best part about Green is that it makes veganism accessible and fun even to die-hard meat-eaters. You will NOT regret going! Happy eating, everyone!
