the Best vegan place in the world! - Edit

Best vegan food I have ever eaten! I have been eating plant based for 8 years now and have been to many different eateries thanks to happy cow! This is the best place. I wish they would put out a cook book with all of there recipes. I would buy it for sure! Don't forget to go next store to licks and get some vegan ice cream!

Pros: lots to choose from! good price! big portions!

Cons: none.

The best! - Edit

I have been coming to this location of Green since I converted to vegetarian in 2015. It is simply amazing! I often order their falafel burrito on days that aren't Friday, but on Friday it is all about the green enchiladas with sweet cinnamon tea. You can get your cheese regular or Vegan, which is great since I am transitioning to Vegan. The cooks will walk around and talk to you, and all of their desserts are made fresh daily. It is a family owned restaurant, and I support that and local businesses.

They have a Mediterranean bowl which is a lot like the falafel burrito, but de constructed. I love it! big, thick slices of carrot and cucumber that you can dip in the pecan hummus or thick and creamy, vegan tzaziki.

They have another location, on the northwest side, but it is subpar to the Pearl location (greyson). I'm not sure why. Maybe the cooks? But if you are in San Antonio, this is the place to go. Bring and empty belly and fill up on some amazing, home made vege/vegan food! They even have gluten free options, too.

Pros: Vegan/Vege/gluten free options, well rounded menu, reasonable prices

Cons: Sometimes there is a wait, it is a bit loud, so don't expect a quite dinner

A nice place - Edit

I've visited this place twice now when staying with my family. There are loads of vegan friendly options and the food is pretty good. The most recent thing I had was an orange tofu bowl and it was an enormous portion. It was pretty good, but maybe a bit too zesty for my taste. My husband had a burger which he thought was pretty awesome. The service isn't amazing, nobody ever seems happy, but I guess they're busy all the time. Oh well, I'd still come back - especially for one of their cakes.

Pros: Lots of choice, yummy cakes

Cons: Grumpy staff

great food - Edit

I went twice in two days. Great food and friendly staff. I had the quinoa burrito and the chickpea burger both of which were excellent. Get the sweet potato fries. I loved all the baked goods I had. Staff was friendly and had fun shirts. The smoothies are a bit watered down and I cannot recommend. Everything can be made vegan.

Pros: lots of vegan

Cons: smoothies are watered down

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE! - Edit

Since going vegan two years ago, I discovered this little treasure in the Pearl Brewery area of SA. Green Vegetarian has the most yummy food for vegans and vegetarians alike. I love that they can make anything on the menu vegan. My favorite is their vegan chickpea veggie burger with vegan chipotle mayo and guacamole with a side of mashed potatoes and vegan gravy. While I prefer to be oil free as well, Green Vegetarian is a yummy treat when I'm craving some of their delicious sweet potato fries or even something sweet, like one of their delicious vegan cupcakes! YUM!

Pros: Terrific food!, Good Ambiance, Great dog-friendly patio area

Spring Visit to San Antonio - Edit

So excited that Green is vegetarian AND KOSHER! I came here with my husband and cousin a few months ago, so I can't remember exactly what we ordered. But overall it was a really great experience with great food. Their mint lemonade was good and I loved the outdoor seating. Highly recommend

Pros: Great outdoor seating, Kosher, Menu variety

Cons: Service took a litte longer than necessary, ..., ...

great restaurant - Edit

This place is my default when trying to think of somewhere to eat. Tons of options, you can go super-healthy or fried-delicious-indulgent and not worry about whether things are veg. Many meat-friends have commented that they're surprised how much they enjoy the menu here.

Delicious food, fun decor and great staff - Edit

Our first time here and we were thoroughly impressed. It'll be a frequent stop whenever we're in San Antonio! Everything on the menu can be made vegan and as soon as we mentioned the word vegan the server was careful to clarify on everything we ordered that we wanted the vegan version.

Pros: Knowledgeable staff, Fun sassy decor, Cauliflower Hot Wings!

Cons: Only distance for me - I live in Austin, TX!

Great Vegan Options - Edit

Tonight was the third time that I've eaten here and plan to eat there again later this week. I visit San Antonio for one week a year and this is a favorite. Tonight I had the Fish and Chips and it was great. I really enjoyed the slaw as it had a lite sauce that was slightly sweet.

Pros: Most items are already vegan, Vegetarian items can be made vegan

Very successful vegetarian restaurant chain in TX - Edit

Green just opened their third location (in Houston), and they're about to open the first vegetarian drive through in Texas.

Great menu - don't miss the kale salad side. Also amazing: protein salad, chik'n parmesan, and the vegan nachos (their frijoles are fantastic)! All desserts are vegan options.

Don't miss their vegan breakfast options! Thank you, Green. I've missed eating breakfast out.

Great location at Pearl Brewery Complex.

Pros: Great food; tons of options , Great location; cool place, Breakfast options

Greens saved me! - Edit

I live in the San Francisco Bay Area and had to be in San Antonio for work. I stayed on the Riverwalk and while there are some places that have a few vegan options, it wasn't ideal. I walked to Greens (a lovely long walk along the river) and had a wonderful meal there. I had the Protein Salad and was amazed at how good the roasted tofu was. The pecan hummus was so different and delicious and the Almond Joy cupcake was one of the best vegan baked goods I've ever eaten. I have to go back to San Antonio in late June and I will be eating here as often as possible.

Pros: Great food, Staff was super friendly, reasonable prices

Mediterranean Madness - Edit

Visiting San Antonio with a posse of vegans and looking for a compassionate place to eat. We landed at Green for Sunday Brunch and LOVED it. Extensive menu with choices ranging from healthy to comfort food (big nasty burger) so there is something guaranteed to please. My Mediterranean Bowl was filled with tabouli, pecan hummus, dolmas, tzatziki, kale salad, falafel and lots of other tasty things. There were "yums" all around our table. The restaurant was packed, but service was friendly and speedy. Would definitely go for a repeat visit. Would be great to see the menu shift from veg to vegan and go cruelty-free!

Pros: everything can be made vegan, extensive menu, outdoor dining

Miss your original location - Edit

Still love Green but am no longer a regular now that you've moved. Senor Veggie is now my go-to restaurant.

Really like the addition of Gardein products but wish you hadn't eliminated my favorites from your menu. These include the buffalo tofu fingers, onion rings, neatloaf entree and sub, "fish" sandwich, reuben carne, guisada and zuchinni enchiladas.

Favorites include coconut cilantro rice, poblano mayo, fried mushrooms, fried pickles and chalupa plate.

Everything at Green is fresh and delicious.

Still wish you hadn't moved and would quit eliminating my favs from your menu!

Our favorite restaurant! - Edit

This is my husband and I's favorite restaurant! I have never had a meal here that I did not thoroughly enjoy. The food is delicious, the service outstanding, and the atmosphere pleasant. We are vegan, and almost everything on the menu can be made vegan. The only problem you'll have with Green is deciding what to order!

Hit or miss, but mostly delicious - Edit

I really enjoyed my meal here. Cheap, plentiful and delicious. I had the beet down juice which was very flavourful but the garlic was a bit zingy for my liking. I had the raw collard wrap which was nice although fell apart easily. I sampled my friends' dishes which were great (more flavourful than mine). They really do the sauces very well! The sesame chicken (seitan) was well flavoured, the chopped BBQ quesadilla (not vegan) had a strong BBQ flavour within the sauce but was nice and crisp. The special of the day was crispy asian eggplant with a delicious sauce over rice and steamed broccoli. The kale salad (side) was delicious. Simple but very flavourful. The refried beans were more like baked beans and were ok. My friends thought the vegan cupcakes were very good but I didn't try them. I wish I was staying longer so I could go back. I ended up taking half my collard wrap home as leftovers.

Edited to add: The food can be a bit hit-or-miss. I came back a second day and the kale salad was so spicy I had to return it. The macrobiotic plate was great though, which I took home mostly as leftovers since it was so huge. The raw sushi was a bit lacklustre.

Visited March 2011

Pros: wide variety of options

Cons: lack of consistency

Not want I expected - Edit

Today while visiting the lovely city of San Antonio, I was sooo excited to try this vegan/vegetarian restaurant. Boy this was not what I expected. For starters they don't serve setain (wheat meat) which is the healthiest vegetarian substitute meat there is. Another issue is that almost everything had nuts in it. I'm a vegetarian and I'm highly allergic to nuts. Also most of the meals were premixed and couldn't have the onions removed. Lastly, they put coconut in the rice that they serve. Somehow my waiter didn't not understand that coconut is also a nut...hmmmmm. Also the customer service was ok because they quickly want to remove your dirty plate yet they didn't offer my boyfriend a refill on water and they made it appear inconvenient to ask for mustard for a burger. They wanted to put their special mayo on EVERYTHING!!! They brought my boyfriend several packages of mustard...come on guys stop being so CHEAP!!!! Is mustard not vegan or vegetarian!!! When in SA again I probably will not visit this place. I prefer to eat at Vegan Places like Loving Hut in Arlington, TX and Spiral Diner in Fort Worth/Dallas, TX.

Pros: Helpful waiters, Seated quickly

Cons: Nuts in almost every entree, Meals are not customized, Limited options for food allergies

V70t5m 27 Aug 2015 - While I appreciate the name confusion, coconuts are not nuts. They have no relation to tree nuts.

I have been a Green fan for years! The food, the staff, the owner(s) are all awesome, and they truly care about the world. They don't have unlimited $to do it all, but they set the bar really, really high and I appreciate that!
