Great food - Edit

Great place to eat junk food. The potato with tomato sauce is delicious and the vegan beef burger also.

mouthwatering perfection - Edit

This place is dreamy treat for vegans and fans of vegan cuisine. Kombucha on tap, some fabulous raw items (tacos and burger served in cabbage-leaf bun-wrap and all the comfort foods. Chili is a zesty, robust, hearty. Customizable for additional dietary restrictions. Innovative, bursting with delicious flavor and superfood goodness. Lovely, roomy and relaxing patio. Highly recommended.

ehhh - Edit

The back patio was relaxing
Food took quite awhile considering no one else was here
The buffalo wings were tasty but a bit soggy, have had better.
The bacon cheeseburger was a greasy mess I didn’t even finish.
Cool that there is a drive thru but won’t be coming back in the car or on foot

Put My Boyfriend In the Hospital - Edit

My boyfriend is non-vegan and allergic to nuts, so I was skeptical about trying an all-vegan restaurant because nuts are quite prevalent in vegan food, but he insisted we try it. When we finally ordered (we were at the front of the line for a good 5-8 minutes), we asked the person working there if what he ordered had nuts and it and she said "probably not". We got about two bites into the meal before we had to rush to the hospital. Luckily his reaction wasn't the worst he's had and we were free to go home in a few hours. Fellow consumers, please be careful, and Evolution, please take allergies seriously. Besides the nuts, the few bites I had were amazing 😊 just wish the staff had checked for nuts.

Pros: Good food

sturkfeld 01 Oct 2017 - if you knew nuts could kill him why would you accept a probably response. one of you should have gone in the kitchen and checked ingredients. unbelievable.
