Yesss! - Edit

Casual atmosphere, beautiful building and decor, with fine dining quality food and cocktails! The menu states how to veganize, vegetarianize, and gluten-freeize almost all dishes! Most vegan modifications are also gluten free! Veggie patty and crumbles made in house with roasted tofu, black beans, mushrooms, carrots and onions (SO GOOD!!) All sides are vegan too! (Minus parmesan on the kettle chips) Vegan desserts to come! Definitely a place to visit and bring friends and family of all dietary dispositions!

Pros: Owned by local family, Great service, Parking garage across the street is free after 8!

Excellent Downtown Option - Edit

This place is fantastic! We went there for dinner last night, and loved our drinks and meals. I had the sliders, and they were so flavorful! Best veggie burgers in town, vegan or not, by a long shot. 3 sliders was a ton of food, I'll definitely stick to 2 next time. I can't wait to go back!

The only downside was that I wish they had a couple vegan desserts. And, if the owner is reading this: cheescake. Vegan cheesecake. Please.

Pros: Lots of options, Cleary marked, Professional staff

Cons: Parking downtown can be a pain, No vegan desserts

Wonderful! - Edit

Brixens looked great based on the other reviews, but their website just hints that many things can be made vegan. We decided to check it out, and were not disappointed. They do have many options that can be made vegan, and they have a very nice vegan cheese. They do tend to use the same basic vegan stuff on every dish when swapping, but the seasoning makes a difference. We ordered the broken tacos (the cheese was white chunks that in the taco context, were reminiscent of queso fresco, the vegan mix seemed seasoned for tacos), the NM Panini (same cheese, but melted, same vegan mix, but not seasoned for tacos), and the Chicken Artichoke (same cheese, same vegan mix). I missed the description of the vegan mix (black beans, mushroom, something else?), so those with allergies should ask. Everything was delicious. The menu is on tablets, and when you click on an item, you can see more detail about how they veganize it. They also have board games and cocktails. We will certainly be back. This is a great option for when you (as the vegan) get tasked with finding a restaurant where you can eat something, but where others will get to eat "normal" things.
I wish they offered vegan desserts! We thought they did, but either they changed the menu or we misread. They did have a vegan sorbet on hand, but the ice cream sandwich and apple fritters were not listed as vegan on the menu this time.

A place you must stop at in ABQ! - Edit

This place is amazing! The majority of menu items can be made vegan, vegetarian or gluten-free. We ordered the nachos and triple green chili sliders (both vegan). The staff told me our fries were even cooked in a different fryer. I'll definitely be coming back.

Pros: Lots of vegan options, accommodating staff

Cons: None

New favorite in ABQ!!! - Edit

There were SO MANY vegan options that we decided to just start with appetizers this time. The service was phenomenal ~ their vegan options aren't just an after thought but thoughtful creative dishes made with love. LOVED everything about my dining experience at Brixens, and I'm looking forward to my next visit and working my way through the menu. I'd give them ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐if I could!

Pros: Tons of vegan options, Genuinely caring service experience, Delicious food!

good stuff - Edit

Pretty much anything can be made vegan here. It’s specifically marked on the menu exactly how they veganize it. We had the sliders and burger, both were awesome!! The green chili tempora was incredible. Huge selection of vegan food!!
