Great Creative Vegan Tacos - Edit

I love the Creative vegan tacos that Imperial serves. They also have vegetarian options that they can make vegan by not putting any cheese on them. My favorite vegan taco was the barbeque carrot and they have had vegan tacos with jackfruit, cauliflower, potatoes...
This is an energetic restaurant with a lively atmosphere. I LOVE sitting outside and for cooler evenings they have blankets so you can remain seated outdoors. GREAT cocktails!!! Delicious salsas and creative hot sauces.

Pros: Vegan options, Fun atmosphere, Great staff

Cons: Not organic, Serves meat

Loud & Crowded, good salsa though - Edit

They have weekly vegetarian/vegan tacos, which have been good (if not terribly exciting) every time I've tried them. The smartdog is a smartdog, but they dress it up alright. The various salsas are great, as is their drink selection.

Based on food alone, I would probably give this place 3 or 4 stars, but for me this is one of the least pleasant places to eat in the metro area. No matter what day or time I've been there, it's always been packed, and you have to sit at long community tables with a bunch of other people shouting to be heard (which isn't my jam). Also, I've never been there without a member of the staff being super rude to my party right off the bat. I'm sure they're stressed out, so I try not to fault them for it (I think maybe the restaurant itself is poorly designed in terms of flow and efficiency), but it's still not something I like going through.

If you don't mind noise, or crowds, or flustered hosts, this place is probably great, but otherwise this might not be your scene.

Pros: Good Food, Good drink selection

Cons: Usually packed, Rude Waitstaff, Unpleasant dining space

Tacos! - Edit

Always have vega/vegetarian tacos options. Salsa and guacamole are delicious! Great creative drinks. Try the habanero infused tequila if you like it spicy! Very busy place eso on weekends so be prepared to wait for a table.

Pros: veggie taco special every week

Cons: busy and loud with long wait times.
