Good house burger, sweet potato fried chips
Posted on 11 / 06 / 2012
I had read about this place on HappyCow and finally had a chance to eat here in November 2012. Here's my Evolution Fast Food review.
The decor and vibe felt very "old school veg" to me. The staff seems like they would be vegetarians and vegans. The space is relaxed and simple, not at all fancy. There are tables for local event and business flyers. In the back is a large, shaded yard with tables for seating.
You order at the counter, your name gets called when food is ready, find a table, then bus your own table when you are finish. All food is served in disposable, compostable ware.
From the menu my friend and I ordered a basic burger and upgraded to the house-made bean patty ($1 extra). The taste is straight-forward veggie burger but more hearty because of the bean patty which was very good. I wish I had added some hot sauce to it to give it a kick.
We also got a side of sweet potato fries which are like chips, served with a house-made ranch dressing, and this was totally delicious and decadent. I would definitely get this again.
My friend also got a berry-flax smoothie and a pumpkin praline pie (both good). And I got their last cup of quinoa-veggie soup of the day (hearty, good taste).
Evolution makes its own pies, baked goods, and desserts as well as the sauces and dressing. There are 2 fridges stocked with prepared goods and sweets for grab n go.
I did see the drive-thru window to one side of the building but didn't have a need for it this time. Next time when I'm in this area, I'll try the other menu items.
When you are in this part of San Diego, eat at Evolution and show your support!
many choices, good prices, tasty food
