Wonderful! - Edit

Stopped here for a quick bite to eat- perfect! I had the Disco Chick'n and it was flavorful and filling-- definitely more of an indulgence! So happy when I find vegan food that is more than a healthy soup and salad. Vegans want to indulge and eat comfort food too! I got so many fries I couldn't even finish them-- A !

Pros: lots of vegan options , easy to navigate menu , friendly staff

Cons: could be limited seating during busy times

The app doesn't let me give 1 star... - Edit

Sorry, I don't understand the previous ratings. I ordered the philly and it's been the greasiest thing I've eaten in a loooong time. My hubby ordered the Disco chick'n and it was very small. Apart from that, we paid 10.65 for the philly and 9.95 for the chick'n sandwich, and they didn't include fries. If you want some, get ready to oye another $5 for a small side of sweet potato fries, because they don't even have the regular ones.
Sorry, but almost $28 for 2 sandwiches and 2 small boxes of water is a total rip off.

No way I'm coming back.

Ziggy Burger! - Edit

I love this burger! Organic smoked tempeh with lettuce, tomato, onion, and pickles. The special sauce tastes similar to a Thousand Islands dressing or In N Out style sauce. Delicious!

Pros: 100% Vegan

Cons: Limited Seating

a new favorite - Edit

I'm new to D.C. and I think I found my new favorite place. I had the disco chicken and it was SOO good and filling. Had the Oreo cupcake too which was beyond tasty (really soft and yummy). Make lemonade was great too. The aesthetic of the place is really cute and I LOVE that everything is biodegradable or recyclable! Prices weren't terrible for a vegan place too. I will be a frequent visitor.

omgsogood - Edit

First time at HipCityVeg and will NOT be my last. I got the BFG and the philly steak as a wrap. It's the meat eater food I miss but without the animal products and honestly way better than any philly I've ever had.

HipCity Veg Is Welcome in DC! - Edit

The food is delicious but the sandwiches are often too messy to carry out and eat elsewhere. They have very few seats. Service is quick and good. We come here often.

Pros: Food is very tasty., Service is quick.

Cons: Establish is small, with very little seating.

Wizard bbq chix - Edit

This was my first time to this restaurant. I live in Fairfax City and it took a minute to travel here but will worth it! I got the bbq chix and ordered the philly steak and sweet potato fries with Sriracha aioli to take home to my bf. Everything was phenomenal. Also, brought a non-vegan friend with me and she got the Buffalo Bella which she said was amazing!

Pros: 100% plant based, all compostable packaging, fresh

Cons: moderately expensive

Good! - Edit

Came here for the first time last week. Super excited to have another vegan option in the area. The deep fryer was broken, so I was forced to eat healthier than I might have otherwise!
I had the Disco chik'n wrap, which was fantastic (and huge!). I also had he Asian salad (good, but swimming in dressing), and the mocha shake (to. die. for).
I will definitely be back!

Pros: taste, portions, vegan!

Outstanding - Edit

A bunch of us from Toronto were panicking to find parking before the end of the night. We simply called ahead and they accommodated six bellies with efficient, incredible, family-like service. The food and conversation was great and our goodbyes at the end of the night were warm. Thank you for your hospitality!

Pros: Food! , Service & hospitality, Adorable store-front and restaurant

Cons: Parking situation

Double Yum! - Edit

My omnivore husband could not believe how good the "chicken" was and I liked my taco salad. Ordered more food to take out for another meal. The two gals at the register were very upbeat and friendly-even remembering my name. Only seats 12 but they said we could go next door to the bar and eat there. Wish they had gluten-free sandwich buns or bread. Happy that the plastic wear is the compostable kind. Wish we had one of these in Austin!

HOLY MOLY OMG - Edit

WOW. That is the best word to describe this place. My husband and I were BLOWN. AWAY. by this chick'n. We were raving about it for days. I am so sad that this was on vacation because I want to eat here all the time. Great. Just great.

Pros: YUM, Amazing chicken, Enthusiastic staff

Cons: Small, Expensive

best vegan burger I ever had - Edit

I had the BBQ special with faux chicken and sweet potato fries as a side. The faux chicken tasted amazing, even the texture was just like normal chicken and the sweet potato fries were delicious as well. The cutlery is compostable and they generally keep an eye on using compostable stuff, which is nice. The iced green tea I had was also very delicious. All in all, definitely worth a visit.

My go to - Edit

I adore this place. It has amazing food and milkshakes. It's across the street from the Verizon center so it can get busy when they have an event. I went one night during a basketball game with the line being 8 people deep consistently and the staff was amazing and didn't make me feel like just another person in line. Smiles and great attitude all around.

All the food is amazing. I've been to the one here and D.C. and the Philly location. Consistent in food and great service.

Very few seats so go knowing you may not find somewhere to sit and there is no parking, but there is easy metro access.

For any of you west coasters this place reminds me of Veggie Grill!

Pros: Great food, Seasonal milkshakes, Amazing Staff

Cons: Not a lot of seating , No parking , Big city prices

Solid Meal at DC Prices - Edit

While not the cheapest lunch, not out of the bounds of DC fare. The philly steak, sweet potato fries, and chocolate shake were all delicious. Super fast service even though it was packed due to DC Pride. Will go again!

Pros: Taste, Speed

Cons: Limited seating

Vegan comfort/fast food. - Edit

Vegan comfort/fast food. The menu is all of the same kind, yet they have managed to inject a good amount of diversity into it. I had two meals here and really enjoyed both. The baked goods and fresh juice were also great. They are committed to sustainability and I was thrilled that everything there was compostable (plates, cups, utensils, etc.) I was in DC for work and HCV was a great spot to pop into to grab food without any fuss.

Pros: Fast, Good Options, Price

Cons: Limited Seating

Never Disappoints - Edit

This is probably my favorite vegan restaurant so far! All of their food is delicious and the staff is always friendly.

I would recommend the Ziggy burger, curried tofu wrap, lil golden nugs (their house recipe chick'n nuggets) with sweet potato fries.

For dessert a black and white milkshake.

Definitely check this place out if you're in DC!

Pros: great service

Cons: limited seating

Best sweet potato fries I've ever had!! - Edit

Everything we had for lunch at this place was fantastic. I had a chick'un ranch sandwich and my husband had the chick'un fajita wrap. Both were super tasty. We shared an order of sweet potato fries...we're not usually big fans but they didn't have regular fries and we were on vacation so, what the heck. We were blown away by the fry perfection. Hip City Veg has giant letters on the wall that spell out CRISPY and they're not kidding! The fries and the seitan were super crisp and delicious. We shared a brownie and a shake and both were fantastic. This restaurant is similar in concept to Terri and Blossom du Jour in NYC....order at the counter and then take a seat and wait for your food. It takes quite a bit longer here but it's worth the wait. Our meal was fresh and hot. The wait time would never fly in NYC but if I lived near Hip City Veg I'd go all the time anyway.

Pros: lots of options, great desserts, very clean

Cons: not much seating, a bit of a wait for food

HipCityVeg rocks a mean chick-un burger. I especially appreciate that all their tofu is organic and non-GM. Very friendly service.

Enjoy!

Best Vegan Cafe in DC - Edit

I've eaten here a few times and had something different each time and each time I have been delightfully surprised at how tasty the food is. I even took some non-vegan friends there and they loved the Philly steak. Everything I've tried there has been very filling so value for money. And the sweet treats are really yummy! The staff are always super friendly. They use compostable wares, so extra points for them :)

Pros: very tasty food, very filling, friendly atmosphere

Cons: not enough table and chairs
