I'm an entertainer for county fairs, and having grown accustomed to relying on "vegan" Taco Bell bean burritos wherever I travel, stumbling upon this restaurant felt like a divine intervention. The sign Nature's Express caught my attention and I ventured in and sheepishly asked the man at the counter what on the menu was vegan. He replied, "Everything in this restaurant is free of animal products and animal-derived ingredients!" I was thrilled! In Yuma AZ of all places! And the food was absolutely excellent... tastewise, even better than Millennium in SF, and way better because you can fill up without having to mortgage your house. The sandwiches were delicious and the pizza, oh my gosh! My wife and I ended up eating there everyday and, since we brought some food from home, managed to avoid Taco Bell for all five days of the fair! On the last day I ordered an "all fruit smoothie" and was asked if I would like a scoop of ice cream in it! It was nirvana! The best part for me is that I got word that this summer they are opening a new restaurant in Oakland CA, which is right near where I live! It inspired me to join HappyCow and write my first review. I hope this restaurant can really spread, and become a giant chain. How the world would be such a big tiny bit better!
Excellent Food, Vegan Oasis, Drive-Thru too!
More expensive than Taco Bell, Not all over the U.S. yet!
