Small menu done right

I like places that have small menus and make sure they nail each dish. All three dishes we ordered were very good.

Not too shabby

Ended up with two chili dogs and an order of fried mushrooms. The ranch wasn’t my favorite but everything else was good enough!

Post-Ski Burger Heaven

Came here 2 days in a row, back to back!! Nothing beats a burger from here after a long ski day up at the bird. I got the BYOB for $11 (not a bad price for the size and quality of the burger) and a side of plain mac and cheese (so amazing!!!) A must visit place in SLC!

Pros: Smack daddy delicious , Good serving size

Great find on our road trip

I got the tacos and they were really delicious! And my father got the burger and he said it was also really good. Would definitely go back and eat again to try the other vegan options.

Pros: All vegan

Great Food

Good place to stop for Vegan food in Salt Lake City. I built my own burger which I like to do since I'm picky. We had to eat outside but that is probably due to Covid. (There was a table for two outside in the shade).

Pros: All Vegan

Cons: No Bathroom

Crazy delicious and satisfying vegan food

We ordered the All-Day Breakfast Burrito (which we didn't see on the website but it was posted on the menu at the door) and ohh my goodness. So so delicious and also, a very generous portion! We ordered a side of sweet potatoes crinkle fries which were also perfectly crispy and delicious. Loved this place!!

Pros: All plant-based, comfort food, generous portions

Best Mac and cheese

Came in from out of town and ordered the southwest green chili Mac and cheeses, Navajo tacos and buffalo florets and tenders. The Mac and cheese was hands down the best item. Was disappointed and the florets with tenders and the tacos. The tacos had little to no fake meat in it and had a lot of lettuce. It was good but I personally feel like it wasn’t portioned correctly. I will defiantly come back to Utah for the Mac and cheese it is worth every penny.

Not healthy plant based

This was not what I expected per Happy Cows description or the reviews. Everything was fried/greasy comfort food. Yeah it may be Vegan but so are Oreo cookies! Per HappyCow Sandwiches and salads were listed. Lil Lotus’s website does not list a menu so I trusted the description and reviews on Happy Cow. Only options were Burgers, fried tacos, mac n Cheez and nachos. Greasy and fried and heavy. No fresh veggies or healthy options, no salads or wraps or sandwiches. I came with a friend so to avoid being a pain we stayed and ate. But I felt gross. Not good if you’re looking to follow a whole food plant based diet!

Pros: Vegan

Cons: Greasy , Everything fried in oil = not exactly healthy, No “Healthy plant” based options, no salads etc..

Wonderful Navajo tacos

A charming vegan place specializing in Southwestern dishes. Take-out and a small area of pleasant tables. The Navajo tacos – made with fry-bread instead of taco shells – are delicious (a real treat for us Hillerman fans). So are the sides of broccoli coleslaw and sweet potato fries. The “crabless roll” tastes great, but add a side dish or something if you are hungry. The people who run this place are friendly and caring.

Pros: vegan Navajo tacos - a rare treat, really nice people, lots of other good choices

Cons: limited seating inside

Delicious all vegan!

I take my non-vegan friends here and they love the Navajo tacos. Today we tried the Breakfast burrito that is served all day and it was delicious! I highly recommend Lil’ Lotus if you’re looking for some vegan comfort food. It’s a neighborhood gem 💎

Pros: All vegan

Great little lunch spot

Has a great selection of lunch items, the burger was yummy & can be made with lettuce wrap or on a GF roll. Cool tunes from the speakers added to the atmosphere.

Pros: Great to go quick lunch/dinner spot.

Cons: Smaller dining place 2 tables that seat 4, Bar stool seating along window only option if busy

Small menu, perfected food

I went here for lunch and could not be happier with my experience. The staff was younger, polite, informative, and attentive. There aren't too many places to sit, two booths and a few bar stools. I got the Mac N' Cheese and the hot dogs and oh man, they were amazing! Both were about $10. Seriously, the flavors they are able to get from their ingredients is impressive and super delicious! I highly recommend this little location if you are in the area. As a side note, they also recycle glass there, which is so awesome. You can only recycle glass you got from them but still, you don’t see this offered in many locations in Salt Lake City.

Pros: excellent food, friendly staff

Cons: Not much sitting area

Had the chicken strips, taco, and fries. They were incredible, the taco was my favourite because it was full of flavour and the sauces on it were creamy. Definitely going again.

By far our favorite SLC restaurant

The food is delicious, great service and very reasonable prices. My favorites are the cowspiracy burger and the Navajo tacos. I'm yet to try anything from here that wasn't delicious though, the mac and cheese and broccoli slaw are also incredible.
