The food was top notch. If it was later in the day I definitely would’ve spent too much money in there, cause they have a full bar. The food would go perfect with a beer or cocktail. We had a Mac bowl and pulled pork. Both excellent

Pros: Delicious, Fully vegan

Superb Vegan food and lovingly made

They make fresh and crispy hand cut fries that I'd trade my firstborn son for. Also, that was the best Chickun Quesadilla I've ever had.

Pros: Friendly Employee , Attention to detail, Heavenly Taste

Excellent Food

The best jackfruit ever, the bbq sauce was ridiculous. The buffalo chicken sandwich was so good, you won't be able to put it down.

Tasty place!

Visiting friends nearby and took a chance on Evolve. Very impressed!! Got regular fries, drunk fries, crack burger, pulled porc mak, and the BBQ grilled chickun sandwich. Everything was really tasty! Food had a ton of flavor, everyone was satisfied.

Pros: Lots of flavor , Reasonable prices , Nice staff

Cons: Maybe a little less salt on the fries

Better than I could have imagined

I went to this place and wrote a google review because it was so great, I'm shocked I didn't remember to review it on this site/app! The bartender and the cook here were awesome. The food was on point, everything is vegan here, this is a little confusing when you first look at their menu if you're not aware because nothing is labeled vegan specifically for that reason. The PBR cheese was a bit heavy on the mustard taste, but I haven't had such a bomb vegan chicken parm sandwich since I stopped eating meat! Full bar in here too, which is not very common with vegan or healthy food establishments and that was such an epic bonus considering I was on vacation when I went. Super sad there isn't one up by my state. 10/10 would recommend and will absolutely go back in the future.

Pros: Full bar, Wide variety, EVERYthing is vegan

Cons: Little heavy of a mustard taste in the PBR cheese

Mac & Cheeze 😋

I’ve said in a previous review, I wish my vacation in Daytona was longer than it was so I had more time to try the vegan food in the area. It was definitely hard to choose from the menu options, I went with the chick’n mac & cheese with the smash sauce which tasted like spicy mayo - so good, I can see where they are coming from with the comfort food idea. They also have doughnuts on the menu but were unfortunately out 💔 100% recommended, the staff member who took my to-go order was incredibly kind as well.

Pros: Completely Vegan Menu, Comfort Food, Great Service

Good, but a little greasy

Fries were overcooked on our first visit, but still edible. Great barbecue sandwiches and PBR cheese. All food is really greasy and messy, though. Also not much variation in flavors. Still a very good place to visit.

2023/01/21 update: Tried a few new things. The Texas fries were great and not at all overcooked like the last time. The Porknic is an absolute winner and I would eat it again and again. Viva Las Vegan was a bit disappointing as it didn't have as much flavor as I expected, but it was still not bad. The strawberry ginger combucha was not my thing. Will upload pictures of everything! Please ignore the upload dates of the foods not mentioned in this update as I meant to upload them months ago.

2023/05/15 update: Another great visit. This time we had nachos, chicken and mac, Philly burger, and the BBQ burger. All of it was flavorful as always, though the jalapeños om the nachos were very mild and didn't add any heat. The knife stuck through the BBQ burger was a necessity with how thick it was. Unfortunately, the donut fryer was broken so we couldn't enjoy any of thoss.

Fun place!

Was great to dine at an all vegan place and order drinks. I had a hard time picking what to eat! Ordered the mac and cheese, blackened chicken sandwich, and the southern sandwich. The mac and cheese needed some salt but both sandwiches were good! Moe was our waitress and she was really nice, friendly, and helpful! She was guiding us of all the vegan options in the area. Definitely would come back and try other things!

I loved the Pulled Porc Sandwich

It was my first time there and first time with a vegan pulled porc and I really, really loved it.
I didn't enjoy too much the beer cheese sauce, but beside that everything else I really liked!

Sadly and regretfully, food was not good

Ordered pulled porc fries and a mac n cheese. Mac was sitting in oil, had that re-heated texture almost, and flavorless. The “Porc” fries that come with cheese was just store bought shreds that weren’t melted and tasted old, you know how vegan mozzarella shreds go bad quickly. Came with onion pieces on it that were bite size. The Jackfruit porc was the best part of the meal.

Pros: All vegan!

Cons: Flavor lacking

I used to love this place.

Their chicken sandwiches are sooo good. 13 for just a chicken sandwich, which is the only thing I get is too pricy for us. Their fries used to be great but something happened in the last year and their not as good😒My fiancé and I have been going there for years to support them but it seems like we prob won’t be going back as often bc we are in NSB area now. Not the friendliest when we go in. Everything is vegan!!! So you can get whatever you want!

All vegan, great variety

Excellent vegan menu with decent food. The ambiance, noise and smells took away from our awesome service and good food. All in all a good meal for a large family. Has something for everyone. Smash sauce was good.

Pros: Lots of vegan options

Cons: Something noisy behind counter

If You're Black, go Somewhere Else

Food was decent, but the unwelcoming staff will never see another dollar from me. It seems they are not fans of black people, although they will take your dollars. I went twice just to check that I wasn't tripping and made sure I told the lady taking orders thank you and good night and she wouldn't even look at me just shook her head yes. If you're black, find another place to spend your money. Go where you are celebrated. Would give this place zero stars, but 2 was the lowest they allowed.

Not people friendly, generally. Don’t take it personally. Sorry.
