Good Mexican Food - Edit

This is a small restaurant that actually has many vegan and vegetarian options because they can customize most of their food to make it vegan. Everything I order tasted good.

great! - Edit

I'm never disappointed with what I eat here. It's always super good and they're super accommodating to vegans. Get the vegan queso, it's the best.

Pros: lots of vegan options

Cons: small

Really enjoy coming here - Edit

It's a great place to go especially when you have a mixed party - there really is something for everyone. And every single item on the menu is vegan unless it specifically states otherwise (or is a no brainer), no hidden dairy products. They occasionally have specials, loved the buffalo tofu they had but the tofu and "un-beef" that they have is very good too. Overall great selection, really friendly staff, and a great place to go.

Pros: Good selection, Good atmosphere, Friendly staff

Cons: Limited seating

Favorite Mexican-style place in town - Edit

We go here a lot, either to sit down or to take out. I always eat way too much here--the portions are big, so watch out! Like if you're deciding between 2 or 3 tacos, 2 is probably enough. The two mock-meat vegan fillings are great, but the un-beef really shines. I usually get tacos or a taco bowl. A great place for some great vegan grub! The prices are very reasonable, and the menu is really a la carte, so you can order tacos one at a time, or sides as you see fit. It is a small space, so on busy nights you'll likely have to wait for a table, and there's no real good place to stand and wait.

Pros: Fast and friendly service, Lots of vegan options, Great prices

Cons: Small space/limited seating

Great non-traditional mexican restaurant! - Edit

We go here a lot.
Positives: great food (at least everything we've had), staff are very polite, friendly, and helpful, small-ish seating area is very quaint with nice atmosphere, very vegetarian/vegan friendly (probably best in area), nice little outdoor seating area, reasonably priced
Negatives: they don't deliver, can get chilly in the winter (just keep it in mind)
In summary HIGHLY recommend! However word of caution watch out for the step going from indoor area to outdoor area and salsa has a kick!

Pros: Great Food, Great Staff, Very vegetarian/vegan friendly

Cons: Don't delivery, Can get chilly in the winter

delicious! - Edit

Pros: none

Cons: none
Small place, very tasty foods. Tofu and "un-beef" (TVP) options. Burritos are big, taco salads are small. Be sure to try their sauces.

Vegan mexican, but all pretty meh - Edit

Super friendly and helpful staff, but the food is just meh. I've gotten quite a few things off their menu and while they were all fine, they weren't very impressive.

Always Good - Edit

John's Tex Mex is one of our favorite places to get take-out since, 1: it's fairly small inside & usually hopping (a sure sign of a good restaurant), and 2: it's always good. My husband always gets a vegan burrito (giant!) and I always get the tacos with ground "un-beef." Oh, and we especially love their mashed plantains/potatoes side dish. The place has cool decor and a good vibe so we will sit inside if we go on an off time, or out on the patio when the weather is nice. Good choices for veggies & vegans alike.

Pros: yum, fairly priced, friendly service

Cons: fairly small inside

Great Tex Mex at a reasonable price - Edit

I would give this a 5 but Happy Cow only allows a 4 since they serve meat as well as the Veg options. My husband and I have eaten at John's multiple times and every time it has been great. Their entire menu can be made Vegan (the burritos are awesome!) and they offer tofu or
"un"beef along with your choice of veggies and guacamole. It's a small place and can get a little busy/crowded. Also has outdoor seating. We usually call ahead and get it to go. They are great about take out orders too.

Pros: Great food, Can make anything on the menu Vegan, Reasonable prices

Cons: can be a little slow, not in the best area
