Orgasmic Vegan Burger

5 Posted on 02 / 10 / 2013

Hands-down the best place to get a vegan cheese burger in the WORLD. I'm not kidding. If you are in Austin you must try the bacon cheeseburger. The tacos are excellent to as well as the BBQ burger. Just do it. Bring an empty belly. And if you need fries the truck park next door has sweet potato fries!!

Wow. Just, wow.

I have been meaning to try Arlo's for ages. Unfortunately, it's not on the side of town where I live, and their hours don't mesh that well with my schedule. Last week the planets finally aligned and I had a chance to try it. I wish I had done so much sooner! I had the bacon cheeseburger and I loved it! If you are looking for "late night vegan bar food" then you have found it. I love thinking about all the non-vegans that love Arlo's and probably don't even know it's vegan...

This place is great. The veggie burgers are homemade and have great texture and flavor. I believe the chik'n is also homemade, and that's great as well. I highly recommend the bacon cheezeburger or the chipotle burger. It's so great to find a place that serves hot, fresh, and flavorful vegan comfort food. The people who work here obviously put a great deal of love and care into their food. They have truly unique and delicious offerings!

Pros: unique, delicious

Arlo's is a new trailer on Austin's east side, and they're open in the evenings until late, situated behind some East 6th St. bars.

The bacon cheeseburger definitely seems homemade from scratch, and is super tasty. Definitely hits the spot. You can get chips and guac as a side or "chik'un" tacos, but it would be nice if there were fries or something similar to go along with your burger.

Our chipotle chik'un burger was ok, the chik'un seemed a bit dry though and not particularly chicken-y. Good, but I liked the bacon cheeseburger a lot more.

Overall an awesome option, especially since there aren't a ton of late-night vegan options in Austin.

Pros: tasty, homemade, pretty good value
Cons: no fries
