Okay (Not Great) Vegan Options

Posted on 06 / 11 / 2012

I was happy to find Grad School while visiting Springfield. It was nice to go somewhere where I could get some vegan food that was not Subway, Taco Bell, etc. As mentioned in other reviews, there are several menu items including Rasta Pasta, Baja Burritos, and Tacos where you can pick your protein, and a falafel patty is an option.
The good news is that gives you several dishes to choose from. Unfortunately, my husband and I did not find the food to be that great (we had the pasta and the burrito). The falafel just didn't go very well with the rest of the food, and it wasn't even very good falafel. That being said, the portions are huge, it's reasonably priced, and the atmosphere is fun.
I would consider going back if I was in Springfield, but would definitely be up for trying somewhere else if they had veg options.

Pros: Veg Options, Huge Portions
Cons: So-so food

Grad School is a great little place, carrying on a few menu items from the old days when Rasta Grill occupied the tiny little diner. The atmosphere still has that laid back vibe it always had, but now has a the best vegetarian selection in town. It is a pretty good feeling having several menu choices to pick from in Springfield MO! I've had the Rasta Pasta, Baja Burrito, and the tacos. You can "pick your protein" in many items- with tofu & spicy falafel for vegetarians. Some items not available vegan.

Pros: Old small noisy diner, Watching the cooks, Excellent flavors
Cons: Small & Noisy if that bothers you

Was surprised to find a vegetarian restaurant in Springfield, but it was very good. I had the Baja Burrito, which had a black bean salsa and basmati rice with veggies. Delicious!

Lots of choices. Almost everything on the menu allows you to "choose your protein". For vegetarians or vegans, that's a falafel mixture.

I recommend!

Pros: selection, price, quality
Cons: none
