Wish I could give 5!

A full separate vegan menu AND the best gyro I've ever had. The Midwest is seriously lacking in options so I'm very happy I found this spot on happy cow.

Pros: Delicious , Big menu , Good value and vibes

Cons: None!

Vegan options of EPIC proportions

Delicious rotating vegan options with an awesome punk/arcade indoor atmosphere.

Offers vegan milkshakes, something I never see anywhere else.

OMG the milkshakes

We made the drive once so far and tried almost the entire vegan menu. Creative toppings and flavor combinations. I'd definitely check out their vegan menu on Facebook before heading out to make sure they are offering something you like. My husband said they cooked the beyond burger really well. The killer was the milkshake with coconut cream whipped topping. So incredibly rich and creamy. Easily the best milkshake I've had - (even Chicago Diner shakes come in a close second for me!) It put us out $55 but we got two sandwiches, two milkshakes and chili cheese fries (all vegan). Also, if you like to eat your chili fries with a fork, bring your own. These are the smallest, flimsiest plastic forks ever and are not functional.

Update: last time I went (8/2022), they had real (metal) forks & knives contributing to a more pleasant dining experience

Killer shake. Solid food.

To be fair, that was a great shake. Had one of the specials. Raspberry lemon. So good

I’m not a fan of beyond burgers but ordered the Crunchwrap special. Food seasoned well. Ghost ranch on the side tasty. Had to pull out the Beyond patty. Would order something else next time passing thru from Wisconsin.

Pros: Vegan specials menu had many additional items , Great shake , Mullet-watching

Cons: Too many options have beyond burger , Both pro and con. This ain’t health food. , Price

Absolutely delicious always!

I love Epic Deli! They have far more vegan options than most in the area and they always have monthly specials with different vegan options on top of their regular options. Their specials are creative and unlike anything you can find in the area

Pros: Unique vegan options, Not overly priced

This place was absolutely delicious. I really appreciate that there is a completely separate vegan menu and it has some really great choices. I got the seasonal Dream Weapon sandwich, which was perfect with it's Buffalo sauce and pretzel bun. Will definitely be going back to try a vegan milkshake soon!

Pros: Awesome vegan options, Separate vegan menu, Milkshakes!

Always a favorite especially if you like good music

Living in the area, this place is a saving grace ever since they offered vegan options several years ago at this point. And they even go as far as to make monthly vegan specials! Bravo!

Pros: Monthly vegan specials, Kick-ass shows, Friendly staff

Cons: Can be expensive

Best place in the area for vegan burgers. Definitely not the healthiest, but so good! (Which is just fine on occasion 😉) They have their vegan options clearly marked so ordering is a breeze

Oh my lawwwdy!

For sure one of my favorite Vegan junk food places for the Antioch area. 😍 They have so many choices - including standard vegan choices that are always served, and then a rotating specials menu that changes every week.

Pros: Lots of options, Special weekly vegan menu

Man was it a wait

Been coming here for many years. The last time we ordered ahead and we were told 15 minutes. We ended up waiting over 53 minutes for our food. They explained their kitchen was backed up but we saw plenty of orders placed and fulfilled during that time. Even one of the employees wasn't happy with how long they took for our order and then when it came out the runner tried to charge us again for our food. The food was good just the service is what ruined it for us.

Pros: Rotating menu that gives you some options

Cons: Expensive for what you get

Just Ok

I’ve been here a few times over the years when traveling back from Wisconsin and have never been very impressed. No house made veggie burger, they use Beyond and similar. Limited vegan options. Expensive for what you get. Disappointing shakes. The tacos I had last time were good though.

Cons: Expensive for what you get, Not many vegan options

Pretty good

Family enjoyed the beyond burger, I ordered the tacos. Tacos were a bit underwhelming however they had a few options for vegans. Including milkshakes!!!! And tons of options for omni friends and family.

Pros: Vegan milkshake, Vegan specials, Vegan burgers

Cons: Tacos underwelming, Portion size too much to finish for one person

Great variety

I love that they change up the vegan specials each week. The food is always so good and the vegan milkshakes are amazing. Very good portions too for the cost, although it still is a little pricey (especially the milkshakes).

I also love the location and the overall vibe of the shop. I love all the pop culture connections.

Pros: Great food, Great portions, Cool vibe

Cons: Pricey

Great place!

I've been wanting to make the drive to this place for a while. I was NOT disappointed!

They have a weekly rotating vegan menu that contains 4-6 items. I had the Beyond Burger special that had vegan provolone, pizza sauce, peppers, etc. Hands down, one of the best vegan burgers i've had. It was messy and oh so good. Junk food heaven.

They really try to cater to us vegans and I'm super appreciative of that. It was pricy but at least there's options. Two vegan burger combos came out to about $26 with tax.

I will be back....a lot!

Pros: Vegan options, Rotating specials, Junk food

Cons: Price

Awesome vegan options!

This place is amazing vegan options. They don't appear to be listed on their website but they do a weekly update on their facebook with the weekly specials. All sorts of comfort food changing weekly such as fries, nachos, meatball subs, chicken sandwiches, and burgers.
