A favorite! :-)

Spiral Diner has been our go-to restaurant during trips to Ft Worth for years, since they were at their original location. It's always been a treat, and they keep improving. The vibe is great, with friendly, home-style service, and their signature dishes are super-yummy. They are also to be commended in particular for their exemplary efforts to green their business.
That said, not every item on the menu has the same wow for our tastes. For example, the pasta dishes might disappoint folks looking for Italian authenticity, and likewise for the Asian-eque dishes, and the snickerdoodles are a little too dry and bready, not crunchy the way we like them. What they do best, in our opinion, is the dishes true to their name: veganized diner-style comfort food. The Jamaican Jerk Burger has been a perennial favorite of mine. But, whatever your tastes, once you identify the dishes that please your palate, you'll be satisfied again and again. Even the carnivores we've brought to Spiral Diner have said they've never had a meal here they didn't like.
There's parking in the back but it fills up quickly around lunch and dinner, so you may need to park on the street.
All vegan, with many organic ingredients, Some very tasty dishes, Laudable efforts to be green
Not all menu items are equally stellar
