Vegan-friendly, laid back place - Edit

I've been coming to this little place for years for inexpensive food and strong (but affordable!) margaritas, but this was my first time eating here as a vegan. It was a good experience. The woman working the counter happened to be vegan herself and was happy to point out all of the specialty burritos that can be made vegan -- quite a few of them, as it turns out. If none of those options speak to you, you can always build your own -- the brown rice and beans are both vegan, I am told, and they have tofu and tempeh. The food here is nothing fancy, but it's not supposed to be. This is not a restaurant for foodies, but more for folks looking for a good solid meal in a friendly and laid back environment. I recommend.

Pros: staff friendly and helpful in finding vegan option, affordable, mellow atmosphere

Cons: serve a lot of animals on their menu

Not Impressed - Edit

The day we went the girl at the counter didn't know much about their vegan options. They aren't marked on the menu well either so we had lots of questions that weren't really answered. We ended up with some burritos that were pretty much just greasy veggies. No vegan cheese, no beans. Their beans are marked vegetarian, and only their brown rice is vegan. If you are vegetarian you have plenty of choices here, but it isn't really a place for vegans. Our omni friends weren't impressed with their food either.

Cons: not many options, bad food, serves meat

Awesome value! - Edit

This is one of my favorite places in town. I eat here probably once a week. It's really cheap and always on point. I love the tempeh and you can add it to anything on the menu. A lot of the ingredients are local and the margaritas are only 4 bucks. I love this place!
