epic Frito pie burger - Edit

Arlo’s has multiple locations throughout Austin. I tend to hit the one at Cheer Up Charlie’s most. The burgers are ALL unbelievable, the tacos rock, and the tater tots are impossibly awesome.

Pros: taste, price, locations

Cons: sometimes they’re REALLY busy & the wait is tough, no convenient parking near Cheer Up Charlie’s

Good location, amazing food as usual - Edit

This is a good spot to frequent. You can eat inside Spider House if you buy a drink, you can also grab food from Cool Beans if you want a major food fest! This was the first time we tried the chicken tacos and they are delicious, little spicy.

Pros: Amazing food, Not just burgers, Indoor seating at Spider House

Best veggie burger on the planet - Edit

Arlo's definitely has the best veggie burger on the planet. As a gluten free vegan I didn't expect to be very impressed but it is amazing. The burger tastes very real but not disgusting like beef. The patties are made from scratch in their kitchen and use lentils as the base giving it a ton of flavor and making it filling. The burgers are very most but not soggy. The cheese melted on top sells it, though. Paired with a side of tater tots or fries this will be your new favorite place!

A good tip is that if you have a weak stomach like me, get the burger without cheese. That stuff makes it super heavy.

FYI, this location is close to UT so you'll get a lot of college students. This generally is a slower location during the day, so you will most likely have little to no wait when ordering and your food will come out quickly. This is also an amazing location to be at as there is also two other vegan trucks, Cool Beans and Milky Way Shakes! So you can try 3 trucks at one time all in the same place. Definitely worth it.

Pros: Great location, Best burger in the world, Located next to 2 other vegan trucks

Cons: Closes earlier than the other trucks

Amazing burgers! - Edit

If you want a burger that reminds you of "the real thing" you will find it here! The burgers are greasy and have all the traditional toppings, and for something a little different you can add mac and cheese to the top of your patty. The sweet potato fries and tater tots make this perfect for a treat day.

Pros: Realistic, Flavorful, Simple

Cons: It is a good truck and it can get to the 100s in T

amazing - Edit

The best vegan burger I've ever had! None of that fake meat stuff. Everything there is vegan! Even the cheese on the burger was delicious, and we all know good vegan cheese is hard to find!
Funky food truck location, attached to a bar.

Great food and reliable! - Edit

Arlos is one of the few vegan trucks in Austin that has been able to expand and seems to hire reliable staff- so they are always open when they say they will be. Plus they are amazing! Bacon cheeseburger! Yes.

Pros: Great Food, Multiple Locations, Reliable

Cons: None

Worth it! - Edit

I had some time to kill between classes at UT so I walked the 30 minutes in the Austin heat to this place. I got the chicken sandwich with tots. It was amazing!

Worst and rudest customer service I've ever experienced ever period. - Edit

As the the description said.

This was about 6 months ago. I feel like a chump for paying for it after the experience. The most rude guy in the rudest voice angry and miserable human. He sucks, and made horrible food.

I have been to the other location near cheer up Charlie's and had a great food and great service every time, but I can leave a separate review for that location.

I'm hoping that other guy has been or will be terminated though.

Pros: it's vegan...

Cons: Horrible service.

So good that it's scary! - Edit

I had to double check that they were totally vegan. I haven't eaten meat in many years but this literally tasted like a straight up burger! I highly recommend and will be back for more.
