Not very vegan friendly

Very limited vegan options. I’ve ordered quesadillas and tried substituting guac for cheese and they usually bring out a real quesadilla and I have to send it back. They also up charge for substituting.

Great, once you educate them

I searched online for 90 minutes for vegan food in Williamsport, Pennsylvania and came up with paltry little. So even though this menu doesn't exactly cater to vegans, we were grateful we could find anything at all to eat here in Williamsport. (Our hotel was there, so we were stuck there.)

My son and I ordered off the side orders menu. We each got one order of corn tortillas, a plate of refried beans, a plate of lettuce and tomato and we split a large order of guacamole. The plate of lettuce and tomato wasn't on the menu, but they made it for us anyway. For 2 people, it came to $22 for dinner. Pretty affordable.

But--it was a bit difficult to get it delivered vegan. The refried beans are vegan, made with vegetable oil--but they place cheese on top and melt in the oven before serving. We anticipated this since other authentic Mexican restaurants do this, and we discussed this with the server. He said he'd get the kitchen to leave off the cheese, but it came with cheese anyway. We saw it when delivered and he happily took them back and later brought out versions without cheese. He was really nice.

In the meantime, the waiter had left the warmed tortillas wrapped in aluminum foil on the table. We smelled them and they were unmistakably smelling like meat. The waiter came back and said oh yeah, that's because they heat them up on a meat grill. ?!?! Anyway, he was again super nice and he took them away, said he microwaved our tortillas himself and they were delicious. Once we got it right everything was so good.

Also--don't get the Mexican rice because first it is deep-fried in the same fryer as chicken and then it's cooked like rice--so it is not vegan.

We asked about the guacamole and it is vegan, as are the tortillas and beans as in they use vegetable oil when making them. Just really go over the issue with not putting cheese on top of the beans and not to use the meat grill.
