Viva Las Vegan!

I was in Vegas recently and was anxious as I was unsure how much Vegas had "embraced" vegan. I was so relieved to come across Hussong's Cantina in Mandalay Bay - there were extensive vegan options, the service was fantastic and the food was delicious (I went for breakfast and dinner on two separate days!). I would've given 5* if the HC app would let me!

Pros: Extensive vegan options on a clearly labelled menu, Excellent service, Delicious food

Lunch was great, dinner not so much

We first ate brunch here just after the restaurant opened for the day and the food was awesome, as was the service. They have an entire vegan menu that’s pretty extensive. We had the vegan breakfast burrito and it rocked! We went back the next day for dinner and it was a whole different experience. Our server ignored us multiple times and the food wasn’t so great (I had the jackfruit carnitas burrito and left most of it because the taste was just weird). Not sure if the evening crew versus the lunch time crew was the difference or if the evening crew just struggled with the quantity of people to take care of but we won’t be going back in the evening again.

Pros: Extensive vegan menu, Great service for lunch

Cons: Slow and inattentive service in the evening

So much to choose from!

This is one of our favorite places in Vegas. When you need a “meaty” burrito, this is your spot. Quick service and fun atmosphere. Definitely worth a visit - especially if dining with non-vegans.

Salty, bland, and overrated

It's great they have lots of options, but our food was bland and extremely salty to the point that we both gave up on our entrees.

Cons: Bland, Salty

Large Vegan Menu

They have a large vegan menu with lots of gf options. You get free chips and salsa when you sit down. They have a couple of breakfast options which they serve all day. The food is really good but the service isn't that great and the prices are super high! (It's the strip so kind of expected unfortunately)

Many options, fun vibe

Loved the plethora of options and the clearly labeled vegan section of the menu. I ate a ton of the chips and salsa then ordered the chicken tacos, which I was barely able to finish. I also ordered a mojito, which was perfect and not too sweet.

Pros: Many options, Fun vibe, Good food

First of all, major kudos for offering a dedicated and extensive vegan menu in addition to your regular menu. There were so many items that I wanted to try, but my tummy wasn't big enough for all the vegan things... Next time. My family was staying at the Mandalay, so it was honestly veggie luck that Hussong's was just a few steps from our room.

On the first visit, I got the Fish Baja Tacos. The tacos were good, but it appeared that the Gardein fishless filets were 1/2 the normal size; I may have gotten 1 or 2 bites of the filet. It was basically a cabbage taco. Also, I tasted, and subsequently saw, vegan cheese inside my tacos. I do not like cheese; vegan or otherwise. The menu does not list cheese in the description, so that was perturbing. (Side note: it is not listed in the menu description, but this dish also comes with beans and rice.)

On the second visit, I got the Chile Relleno with the Gardein Chick'n strips. This dish is supposed to come with mixed garlic, onions, tomatoes, carrots, and potatoes, then topped with Daiya (vegan cheese) shreds and avocado, served over a tostado with beans and rice. I requested no tomatoes or cheese. What did I get? Well, I got the open poblano pepper with "chicken" strips, tomatoes, avocado slices, a mystery sauce drizzled atop, and the tostado, which was surrounded by a mole sauce. The garlic, onions, carrots, and potatoes were no where to be found. This is a $17 dish. I am going to need them to not omit 1/2 of the ingredients. I picked out the tomatoes and the remaining dish was good, but I wanted the rest of that darn filling!

The beans & rice, however, were excellent. They were among some of the best and most flavorful vegan rice and beans I have ever had.

I'd love to give some of the other menu items a try, like that Habanero Guacamole dish, and the Sopes. But the kitchen needs to make sure they know what does and does not go in their dishes, and/or update the menu descriptions accordingly.

They were open from 11am-11pm. Carry out orders need to placed at the bar, or you may call ahead. Hussong's Cantina is located in the Shoppes area. If you're at Mandalay Bay, simply follow the signs for the Shoppes. It's just a short walk after you've exited the escalators. If you reach Lush, you've gone too far.

Great Vegan Menu

We came across this restaurant at lunchtime whilst exploring Manderlay Hotel. I spotted the vegan menu & we were lucky to have a walk up.
I chose the jackfruit fajitas, lots of delicious toppings. Jackfruit was a bit dry & it looked a bit too meaty for me but the fajitas were good, the spicy rice & refried beans were very good. Husband had vegan quesadillas which he enjoyed.
It was busy as it was President’s Day but we got a table & service was good.
Quirky decor, and our server was friendly. Would recommend.

Pros: Extensive vegan menu, Great atmosphere , Reasonably priced

Lots of vegan options

Got the vegan chimicanga, it was good but a little greasy for my taste. But I would have liked to try more on the menu. I didn't like the mariachi band, asking for tips, playing pop songs at your table but your milage may vary on that entertainment.

Pros: Half the menu is vegan, other half is omni

Cons: Mariachi band was annoying to me but ymmv

Absolutely delicious!

I ordered the vegan burrito, mixed veggies instead of veg protein options, and smothered in a verde sauce. I got a fun margarita to sip and the two salsa options given with chips are also delish!

Pros: Huge vegan menu! , Yummy drink choices

Cons: Expensive but it’s Vegas so it’s to be expected!

Be sure to ask for the VEGAN menu as it's not readily on display or advertised.
Such a huge selection of vegan foods from tacos to burritos and chimichangas, not to mention vegan desserts and drinks. The service was also amazing. The Baja "fish" tacos were out of this world

Pros: Lots of vegan options

Cons: A little expensive but most things in Vegas are.

Fantastic Find in Mandalay Bay

Fantastic find inside the Mandalay Bay Resort! They have a wonderful page of vegan selections on their menu! We shared their classic Vegan guacamole, vegan fajitas (with vegan sour cream & Daiya Cheese) and their amazing vegan chocolate cake with a peanut butter frosting and sweet tomatillo sauce! Top this off with great service and you have a place that we will return to as often as we can!

Pros: Full page of vegan options including dessert.

Full page vegan menu!

So glad I found this place on here! They had a whole page of vegan menu items with mock meats, cheese and sour cream!

They also have a happy hour from 3-6pm everyday which has $6 margaritas.

When you first sit down they give you a huge bowl of warm corn chips and salsa. I ordered the fish tacos, only chicken and beef were listed but the server mentioned they have fish too. It was delicious!

There’s also a vegan dessert but I didn’t try it.

Awesome vegan and gluten free options!

What a gem I found while staying at the Mandalay Bay! It’s in The Shoppes area, easy walking distance from multiple hotels. This place had an abundant vegan menu and is a perfect place to accommodate a mix of carnivores and vegan eaters. I absolutely loved the smoky chipotle salsa...it was truly unlike anything else I’ve ever had at a Mexican restaurant. The chips were fresh and delicious and I got to have my first Chile Relleno since going vegan. I don’t eat mock meats and they were very accommodating with substituting fajita vegetables. Was quite a surprising find and treat!

Pros: Entire vegan menu...lots of options , Great choice for a mix of vegans and carnivores , Excellent service

Cons: Was a tad pricey for the type of meal/ambience
