Awesome vegan burgers - Edit

This place really improved in the last couple of months. I really eat there a lot, my favourites are the Schnitzlinger, Döner and Döner wrap.
Big portions, and you get a burger, drink and side dish for about 10 Euro. Most of it is organic and the cups and everything else is compostable. The food is always fresh, so you won't get "old" fries or an "old" burger.
Nice owner and staff, the only downside are their opening hours. They are closed on Sunday and Monday, the rest of the week they are open only until 7 pm.
Only vegan place in Linz!

Pros: Good burgers, Only vegan place in Linz, reasonable price

Cons: opening hours

Decent vegan burgers - Edit

I've been eating at the "Front Food" a couple of times and while I have to say that I was disappointed of the food in the beginning when the place opened, the burgers and side dishes really improved. Quite good, reasonably-priced burgers. I really like the Pirate Burger - don't know if the others improved as well. Too bad the restaurant is only open until 7pm.

Pros: 100% vegan, good burgers

Cons: opening hours, uninviting atmosphere of the dining area

Ok - Edit

I appreciate it a lot that FrontFood is a total vegan restaurant. Also you have to take in to account that it is a fast food restaurant. Therefore the atmosphere is rather cold and not very inviting. The food is OK but not really outstanding. Perfect if you would like to eat something quick.

So-so vegan burgers and cupcakes - Edit

I guess I am spoiled, because I live in Rotterdam, and I eat awesome vegan burgers and cupcakes there regularly. I am very happy that Linz has a 100% vegan cafeteria, but the taste was disappointing. I give four stars, because I like the initiative, but burgers, sauses, cupcakes, drinks, everything was so-so. Even the fries and wedges were too salty and tasty vegan mayonaise would be so easy to make! Moreover, also organic plastic is plastic and a dishwasher is still better. Especially, because the hamburgers and fries/wedges are in paper, so it would mean washing the glasses. (I don't think many people use cutlery for eating a burger, fries or a cupcake...) Cheap though.

Pros: 100% vegan, Mostly organic, Cheap

Cons: Food so-so, Drinks so-so, Plastic cups and cutlery

Best burgers - Edit

Best burgers and best dips I know. Absolutely fair prices.

Nice organic burgers (but franchise-style) - Edit

FrontFood is the first vegan-only (fast food franchise style) restaurant in Linz. Prices for the burgers range from 2,70 EUR to about 5 EUR, so you have to plenty options to choose from. As a side you can order wedges or fries (both about 3 EUR) and you'll also be able to get some muffins or cake as a dessert.

The burgers are quite small (McDeath style, but matching to the prices) and good. Sometimes the sauces tend to be a bit stale and could need some stronger seasoning (speaking for my palate here though) - it seems to depend on the sauce you order. Wedges and fries are great, and you should definately go for the cupcakes as dessert!

It is outstanding that about 95% of the offering is organic (except the "Schnitzlinger" and the "Filetburger" which come with a non-organic, but GMO free TVP soy patty) AND that even the dish/cutlery/packaging is 100% compostable as its made out of corn starch.

The service is friendly, if there's time they'll even bring you the meal to your table if you ask nicely. So don't forget about the tip ;)

FrontFood is situated in an historical building with thick walls and the interior is quite simplistic, but still a place where you can stay a while to chat.

Bonus: they also offer free wifi

Suggestion: I clearly would recommend the owner to get away from the franchise-style offerings and would convert the whole thing into a more personalized burger joint.

Pros: Organic burgers!, Quite cheap, Friendly service

Cons: Needs more seasoning

Fair price, tastes perfectly - Edit

Front Food is great. The ideology of offering vegan bio products to a fair price is excellent. They have a wide range of vegan food - from burgers, bosners to cupcakes and other things. The people there are very friendly.

Pros: wide range, faire price

depends of the dish - Edit

Traveling through, I visited this place for some fast dinner. I cannot recommend the Schnitzel-burger (whatever the name was), but the Bosner (sort of hot-dog) and the cupcake were really good. Portions could have been bigger, though

Pros: affordable fast food, BOSNER

Cons: small portions

Needs improvement - Edit

I was delighted to find that Linz now has a completely vegan eatery. Unfortunately, I did not at all like the taste of my "Big Chiiesy" (which was actually quite small, but OK for the price). There are so many good vegan burgers "out there", so I was hoping to find one of them at Front Food but was quite disappointed.

Pros: completely vegan, organic

Cons: didn't like the taste, small burgers, cold atmosphere

First vegan restaurant in Linz - Edit

Tasty burgers, hot dogs, cupcakes and more - all vegan (organic and fair as far as possible).
If you like fastfood and meet nice people, that's the place to go.

Pros: tasty, inexpensive, sustainable
