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

Yum! - Edit

Philly Streak was amazing! I also enjoyed the Quinoa Chili. Since this was a 20 minute walk from my hotel I’m debating on getting something to go.

Good casual vegan spot - Edit

HipCityVeg offers delicious vegan casual take-out that appeals to vegans and omnivores alike. I enjoyed the Disco Chickn sandwich and fries with spicy mayo.

There are options marked gluten-free but these are all just toppings on salad. These were fine but less remarkable for my GF colleagues.

Pros: Compostable packaging, Hearty food

Cons: Limited seating

great food - Edit

I had a orange creamsicle milkshake that was heavenly! The food was really good too. It's always great when restaurants are fully vegan and you don't have to worry about cross contamination.

FOOD IS SO GOOD - but maybe plan to order to-go - Edit

Food was so, so good. I got the fried "chikn" sandwich and I wish I could have ordered 100 to go. However, the place is small with VERY limited seating and is very popular (because the food is so good) so we ended up standing up to eat at a counter.

Vegan Haven in Washington D.C. - Edit

HipCityVeg is a Vegan Haven in the heart of Washington D.C. It is located conveniently downtown within walking distance of the National Mall and many of the hotels. We absolutely loved the food and we were super excited to find out that they were sustainable, with all their packaging compostable and that they use as much recyclable material as possible. The only downside is their seating is very limited. HipCityVeg is a little on the pricier side, expect to pay $9 for a burger, but it is well worth it!

Pros: 100% vegan, compostable materials, delicious food

Cons: limited seating, pricey

delicious greasy American food - Edit

We love this place. I love their Disco Chik'n (which has Gardein chicken AND tempeh), as a wrap and buffalo style. They charge extra for everything here, which sucks. And I've found the dishes to not be very consistent. Sometimes the Disco Chik'n is crazy spicy, sometimes there's only 1 pickle, sometimes it's breaded and sometimes it isn't. Service is generally friendly. Space is pretty small and tight. We always go at an "off" time so we'll be able to find a place to sit. Tend to avoid if it's peak hours, because if you don't get a seat it's hard to find a place to sit outside in Chinatown. But HipCityVeg will still always be one of my favorite vegan places in DC! A great place to bring guests and non-vegans.

Pros: tasty, meat substitutes

Cons: small space, expensive

unbelievably amazing - Edit

Wow. What can I say.
This is the place for you if you wanna eat diner vegan food.
Their chick’n wrap is yummyyyy, so as their burger (add avocado on top!!!).
And the sweet potato fries. Oh my.
Gets crowded before concerts (near Verizon Center), but worth every minute of waiting.
The stuff is also extremely nice, you can see they just love their job.

Pros: sweet potato fries , vegan mayo

AWESOME - Edit

My adventure into the city on a Snowy Saturday afternoon brought me across the doorstep of this tantalizing restaurant. The mint chocolate vegan shake completely took my mind off of the 20 minutes it took to find parking. The sweet potato fries in one word....... Yummy!!!! The chili.....OMG!! The Asian salad... tasty! Then, I bit into my stake and cheese!!!!! (Please wait while I wipe the drool from my mouth.) the texture, seasoning, EVERYTHING about this sandwich was satisfying. I don’t miss the carry out steak and cheese one bit!!!! My taste buds send kudos to the chef!!

Pros: quality food, vegan treats, all vegan menu

Cons: parking, small dining area

Vegan Fast Food!!! - Edit

I hate that I love this place so much! Or at least, my waist does...my taste buds are always satisfied here. I have not tried the entire menu yet, but the chipotle fajita wrap, the sweet potato fries, and the shakes are so delish!!!

Amazing (Vegan) Food - Edit

Where to begin? We were visiting from out of town and kept going back for more! The Ranch Chick’n Sandwich was truly amazing. I tried the Disco Chick’n as a wrap and wasn’t impressed.

The milkshakes though!!! We tried the seasonal Pumpkin (amazing), seasonal Mint Chocolate (amazing) AND Creamsicle (yep, amazing!).

My mouth is watering as I type. Go. Eat. There.

Yum! - Edit

What else can I say? HipCity Veg is a fantastic little vegan cafe in Chinatown. I was so excited when I walked in and the server behind the counter told me that they are 100% vegan. I will definitely be going back soon.

Pros: 100% Vegan

Very Good - Edit

It was so nice to be able to choose from an entire menu. We got the chipotle fajita wrap, buffalo bella, chicken sandwich, sweet potato fries with siracha aioli, and the creamsicle shake. The buffalo bella was the best in my opionion. Although everyone thoroughly enjoyed their food. It was also quite filling. The shake was also very good. There is not much sitting space which could be a problem but we were able to get a table for three. The service was quick and friendly and it is priced similarly to other DC locations. I highly recommend checking it out.

Pros: delicious food, service

Cons: seating

tastes like chick-fil-a - Edit

I got the Ranch Chick’n sandwich and sweet potato fries. No joke, the “chick’n” tastes just as good as Chick-fil-A! Seriously! We finished it off with a banana whip and a chocolate and vanilla soy milkshake! We could not finish it all, but not for a lack of trying. Oh. And the sriracha vegan mayo should be bottled and sold in stores!

Great! - Edit

Great food! I had one of the burgers, it was close to perfection. Even so that I came back a few hours later for a banana whip. It was also delicious and very big (too big ;) )

Pros: mega tasty, fast, reasonably priced

Hearty and Delicious - Edit

I love the concept of this restaurant. They make a mock chicken that is quite tasty. On our recent visit, we ordered the Crispy HipCity Ranch and added cayenne hot sauce. The chick'n patty is quite hearty and is lightly breaded and fried. The ranch dressing has the perfect blend of spices. We also ordered the sweet potato fries and preferred the sriracha aioli dip.

If you visit DC, you must go to HipCityVeg!

Pros: Hearty, Good spices

Cons: None

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!
