Food Option Anxiety - Edit

With all the choices, I couldn't decide on what to get. So I did what any reasonable person would do; I ordered one of everything (in mini). Yup! The girl behind the counter looked at me like I was crazy but it was worth it. I got to try all the flavors and loved every single thing. I'm allowed; I'm on vacation.

Pros: lots of options

Cons: lots of options

Fast Food Done Right, - Edit

I'm really glad Lord of the Fries exists. It's always very busy. I doubt all the customers know it's veg*n. The nuggets are the best I've ever had. I've tried all the burgers. They are all ok, not great. but they get the job done. The hotdogs are way better, but the Chicago Style is a pretty poor representation. No poppy seed bun, no neon green relish, no sport peppers (Just some other kind of pepper), and no detectable celery salt.

The Tiajuana is the best of the dogs, IMO.

Overall, if you need some nice, fast good calories in a pinch, Lord of the Fries is the place.

Pros: Fast Food Fast. Convenient location.

Cons: nothing healthy on the menu.

LOVED IT! - Edit

Have visited twice so far and will definitely be going back! First time was at the Vegan food fair where a friend and I tried their 'Veganator' burger (hash brown, 'bacon', angel foods cheddar cheese, ketchup , BBQ sauce and vegan mayo) and their chocolate chunk cookies. Both items were superb, especially loved the 'bacon' on the burger! the second time i visited i ordered the 'Melbourne' hotdog (Cheese, onion, tomato sauce, mustard and soy sausage), fries and the 'peanut butter' shake. All were delicious and especially loved the peanut butter shake (was well worth the $7) Even my non-vegan friends who i went here with enjoyed it! Would 100% recommend LOTF to everyone, wish there was a store in Hamilton!!

Good vegan fast food - Edit

I have tried a number of vegan foods here including the original and vegan "chick'n" burgers; and sweet potato and classic fries with Parisian (aioli garlic mayo) sauce. By the way, the Melbourne hotdog is the best hotdog of the three types offered. Oh, and apparently, all of their sauces are vegan.

Personally, I used to love their food, but I found that their quality and customer service has gone downhill a bit. When I ate out with a colleague, they forgot to add sauces in our burgers and hotdogs so they were quite dry. We didn't bother bringing it up, but mentioned it the next time we were there. The lady present on that day apologised and ensured that our orders came out right. But still, how can someone forget to put sauces in burgers and hotdogs? Boggles the mind.

Overall, I think it's an ok place, and definitely awesome to see so many non-vegans and non-vegetarians eating here. Many don't even realise that this fast food joint is vegan; it's hilarious.

Check it out if you haven't already.

Phenomenal - Edit

We had phish burgers, comes with vegan tatare sauce, vegan cheese, pickles and a bit of salad. Really tasty, friendly, good vibe on the harbour front. Maybe a little pricey ($10) for a burger but location considered I think it's about fair. There's a craft beer place next door and the seating is shared, if you fancy that.

Pros: Vegan burgers, fries etc, Vegan cookies and vego bar

Cons: No indoor seating when it rains

Awesome feed - Edit

Great place for a quick and easy meal. Been there twice for the American fries and vegan spicy burger, both delicious. Nice to have a burger and chips option for vegans, though it is crazy tempting being just around the corner from my work!

Pros: quick, central

Cons: processed

Great fast food joint - Edit

Great place for vegetarian/vegan fast food, burgers, hot dogs, nuggets and fries (including sweet potato).

Everything is either vegan or can be made vegan, all the sauces are vegan.

I had the Parma burger, a chicken patty with cheese and bacon, very tasty.

They have very recently opened up a new branch in Auckland in St Kevins Arcade on Karangahape Road.

Pros: Great vegan fast food, Lots of choice available

Cons: Small seating areas so better suited for takeaway

Great fast food for vegans! - Edit

Today our family of three lunched here. We had hotdogs and fries and absolutely loved it. Great tasting big hotdogs and the Canadian vegan "gravy and cheese" sauce made the fries really interesting! We will definitely come again on a warm and sunny day as it only has outside seating.

Needs no review really, it's as good as the hype - Edit

Good choices of vegan food. Love that it's like a classy fast food place, with a really rustic atmosphere. A bit pricey, but worth it in my opinion.

Amazing Food! - Edit

Lord of the Fries is the best thing to happen to me yet. My favourite item on the menu is the Tijuana dog. Their shakes are amazing and their food is very high quality. I always say when it comes to vegan food than you can pick 2 of 3: taste, texture and looks. They chose all 3! Very inexpensive to eat- especially if you get a meal. The fries were a little disappointing though, only because they squeeze lots of sauce on top of the fries. The top fries can get soggy quite fast and the bottom fries are left with no sauce. All in all great place. I'm so glad with how accomodating they are. Super quick service too, based on how many people there are to serve.

Pros: Taste & texture, They don't sacrifice creativity for cruelty-free, Inexpensive

Cons: All the sauce on top of the fries

More vegan options = Good - Edit

Great to have this place in Auckland. Brings more awareness and provides more options.
LOTF has only been open a week and the staff are still learning, Queues can be slow even though there are a lot of people behind the counter.
Seems as though everything can be made vegan; we had no problems. All sauces are vegan.
Burgers were a little empty, but very tasty. We had the phish burger and the spicy burger. We also had the Chicago hotdog which was nice but a little overwhelmed by the bun. The fries, surprisingly, were the let-down. Kind of soggy and ordinary, and having paid $1.50 or whatever for the aioli sauce, we thought we'd get a little more than what we did.

LOTF is opened right next to a 2-3 year long major building site in downtown Auckland, so I hope they are getting cheap rent. Handy to have a bar right next to it so we got a beer and a wine with our dinner. We also snacked on the vege (vegan) dumplings at the next door dumpling place and they were great!

We will definitely go back, but will wait a few weeks to let things settle down, but even if they don't, it will still be on our list, just because it's so great to have that option.

Oh and I really like that the packaging is all paper and wood - no plastic, yay!

Updated from previous review on 2016-11-04

Pros: Tasty, Lots of vegan options, Cool location (apart from the building site)

Cons: A little pricey, A little slow (probably teething), Could pump up the ingredients

Central location - Edit

We went in the first week they opened, we arrived at around 7:30pm and there was a long queue, the staff were very busy and obviously stressed, but still friendly. They are operating out of a container at the moment, next to a bar, so you can get your beer there too.

Everything on the menu could be made vegan and all their sauces are vegan. The itself food was pretty average. My burger did not look like the photo (do they ever!?), I needed to open it up to make sure there was more than just a burger patty. My son got a hot dog, which he really enjoyed, it was very big, they had to use two soysauges to make it so big.

Pros: Good vegan "fast" food

Cons: Located outside, so wasn't that warm
