Amazing food

With COVID, things are very different but this cute little place is managing well! They have an outside set up to get your food, you just text them back once you’re there. The food is nothing short of amazing.

Pros: All vegan , Inexpensive , Delicious

Very unhealthy

If you’re looking to indulge and get some deep fried food then this is the place for you . I personally like my food to have some kind of fresh elements to it and this place has none of that . Think county fair food but vegan . Witch is needed in a community but personally not my thing

everything is delicious!!

this menu had so many different choices that i would love to have tried that it was almost impossible to choose! the walk up counter was pretty fun, and i loved all the decor! there’s a patio type space to eat outside as well, although i did not see any indoor seating. the workers were very nice and helpful, but the service was a bit on the slower side.
even though it was hard to choose, there were discounted chili dogs that day so i got one! by texture, this is probably the best vegan hot dog i’ve had, and i enjoyed the flavor of the chili despite not being the biggest fan of chili. a definite recommendation for any chili dog fans. i loved it!
the harvey sandwich was a tempeh blt. i really enjoyed the smokiness of the tempeh. the sandwich wasn’t messy and held its structural integrity.
i was super excited to try the cuban! this cuban came with pulled jackfruit AND pork seitan. it had plenty of pickled and some delicious mustard! i appreciated that it was heavy on the mustard, although that might bother some. i thought both of the meats were incredibly realistic and i loooved the flavors. this would be my go-to order.
finally, i had to try the mac! this mac and cheese had some extra shredded cheese in it, and what i believed were jalapeños as well! it was a very unique flavor, and i appreciated the originality!
i really enjoyed my visit here, and the only downside to my trip was that they had run out of the weekly cake slice 🥲 definitely come here !!

Pros: wonderful menu, amazing sandwiches, cute location!

Cons: slow-ish service??

Unique spot with great food in a charming area

The options all sounded great and made it hard to order, but seems like you really can’t go wrong

Only complaint was it took a bit longer than I thought to get the food, but I won’t knock off a star for that given everything else was so great

Unique & Fun

I love how this place has rotating items and deals. It just spices up the variety! It is a cute location with outdoor seating. I tried their star Cuban and it was DELICIOUS! I’ve always wanted a vegan Tampa Bay regional Cuban and this place hits the spot! I also saw users rave on about the cake so tried a peanut butter chocolate Oreo crust cake. Very good but small for the price. I want to come here again for sure. It’s a must-go to in the Tampa Bay Area and every bite is great!

Pros: Delicious , Cute spot, Always changing

Cons: Spendy

We had the Cuban and chili dogs with waffle fries. You can get dino sauce with the fries which they said is like honey mustard mixed with BBQ sauce soooooo good! 10/10 would recommend. They have cannoli nachos as a special for Mother’s Day and it was the best dessert I have had in my life!

Pros: All vegan , Cute patio seating

We got the Cuban sandwich, a wrap, and a side of dill chickpea salad. All of them were delicious, but the real gem was the peanut butter Oreo cake, which was so so good. The prices are a little high and the portions are a little small, but I would definitely go back to Golden Dinosaurs. The location is very picturesque and the restaurant itself is really cute. There is only outdoor seating.

Pros: Lots of vegan options , Location, Vegan desserts

Cons: Expensive

Nice outdoor seating

No seating inside, only tables outside, food is reasonably priced unlike other places (not exactly healthy but few other places are either) glad they are there.

Loved it all. Too many mosquitoes outside, but I don’t think that’s their fault.

Tasty burgers!

We had burgers, fries, popcorn chick'n and two dips. The burgers and fries were really great. Only thing one of the dips had separated and didn't seem so fresh anymore and the popcorn chick'n was a bit "limp" and tasteless. But the overall atmosphere, friendliness and great burgers and fries made up for that!

Pros: All vegan, Lovely atmosphere and friendly staff, Yummy burger and fries

So delicious and great vibe

This place is incredibly good. I've been here several times and am just so happy this place exists. I'd highly recommend the Harvey sandwich and they have a number of great options to choose from. Their patio area is great as well.

Good food but expensive….

Everything I have eaten here is delicious! But an $11 sandwich or wrap w/o a side is a bit much.

Where’s the veggies?

This place has several faux meat dishes and faux cheese but almost no vegetables. I would describe it more as vegan junk food with very few healthy options.

I had the French dip. It tastes decent.

Pros: Completely vegan restaurant

Cons: Lack of veggies , Lack of healthy choices

Love, love, love the Golden Dinosaur

The food here is absolutely delicious. I have never had a bad meal here. The Bea Arthur special is just like an Arby's Beef & Cheddar, but better. The Philly, the Harvey & the Cuban just melt in your mouth. Service is great as everyone seems to actually WANT to be there. Love this place!

Fantastic food and great selection

We are on vacation in Florida and had found it difficult to find good vegan options, until we found Golden dinosaurs on Happy Cow! Fantastic selection including desserts and great quality, we all loved the food which has been difficult to please everyone at every other meal. Would definitely recommend.

Pros: Everything is vegan, Great selection, Fantastic quality
