5 stars! - Edit

I’ve been going here quite often! The plates are filed so generously, I always have leftovers! The food is so so good, I wish I could eat here every night!

Excellent and Plentiful Vegan Options - Edit

We were very impressed by their thoughtful vegan offerings. You can veganize almost anything on the menu, by substituting seitan. I got a taco comb plate and all I had to say was that I wanted the vegan option. It'll automatically come with the vegan rice option, and all of their beans are animal-free. My taco "meat" was delicious and the texture was like ground beef. My husband had the enchilada combo plate - it was very good and the seitan was cubed and had a good (grilled?) texture.

We were very happy with this place. The atmosphere was nice, and were the staff. We'll definitely go back next time we're passing through. We have a TON of other menu items to veganize.

Pros: Many vegan options, Knowledgeable staff (about vegan subs), Nice ambiance

Cons: No vegan cheese (email me for great recipes), They serve meat ;)

So tasty, and many vegan options - Edit

I really enjoyed my lunch today. I had a vegan burrito with chile colorado. Rice was delicate and tasty, beans are perfect consistency and taste, and the seitan (meat substitute) was a great texture and went well with the hot sauce (which appears to be house-made and is gritty and hot...reminded me of Kansas City in a weird sentimental way...I loved it).

Pros: attentive, proactive staff, outdoor seating, unique decor

Cons: I wish I lived closer

Surprisingly Delicious - Edit

This resturaunt was pretty delicious. I went with my family which consists of meat eaters, a vegetarian, and a vegan. This place was pretty great they had the vegan, vegetarian, and the gluten free options clearly marked on the menu. I ordered a combo plate with vegan tacos with the adobada, and a vegan enchilada with mushroom and seitan. The dish came our wirh refried beans and white rice with corn and the entire dish was really delicious. I would definitely come back.

Pros: lots of clearly marked options for people with dif

El Zarape is perfect for everyone! - Edit

This great local favorite offers traditional Mexican Food in a relaxed, nice sit down environment. Not too pricey! Always good for omnivores- they recently modernized the menu making it super vegan friendly with TONS of great choices! The best most exciting thing is that at El Zarape the entire menu has several vegan protein options listed right next to the usual meat choice! They have Seitan Chili Verde, Seitan Chili Colorado, Ground Seitan and my favorite is the super savory Seitan Adobada! They also offer yummy Portobela mushroom dishes if seitan isn't for you. All the beans are vegan and they have a tasty vegan rice option too! Just be sure to tell them vegan and they will take care of you.
I love how the owner of El Zarape gets the concept of vegan and makes sure to keep a clean (no meat contamination) kitchen. The servers are friendly and drinks are damn good too!

Pros: Vegan options throughout the menu, Friendly atmosphere, Good price for sit down service

Cons: They should franchise so it is everywhere!, I would give 5 stars but system wont let me, because they do offer meat.
