First Review by rajdhar

we love this place! - Edit

This is one of our favorite restaurants - good, hearty food, big portions, at a reasonable price. We can feed a family of four for under $30, all of it high-quality ingredients. The sauces are excellent. I don't think there is any dish we don't like (and we've had most). Only drawback is that a lot of the food is too spicy for our kids' taste, but they could eat the cauliflower bites all day.

(update 2017: Just want to add that we took my brother's non-vegetarian family to eat at Lulu's, they all enjoyed their meals and would like to go back.)

AMAZING! - Edit

Lulu's is amazing! I had it for the first time today and definitely was not disappointed. We had the buffalo cauliflower bites as an appetizer. I had the Thai crunch wrap and a cupcake. The others in my party had the sweet potato black bean burger and the chipotle black bean bowl. Everything was delicious and good sized portions. I can't wait to return!

Pros: fresh, amazing vegan food , atmosphere was unique and welcoming; nice patio , wait time wasn't bad

Cons: parking wasn't ideal

Tasty Food! - Edit

My husband and I were back home visiting family and decided to stop in this place. We had just stopped eating meat and my husband was still a little unsure if he was going to be able to fully make the change. He mind was completely changed after this meal. He loved everything we had and we have been going strong for four months now. We plan to stop in the next time we are in St Louis.

Pros: Great Food, Friendly Service

Delicious quick meal! - Edit

This eatery was delicious! We came in on a rainy, chilly day and we're looking for some comfort food. Had the mac n cheese (with butternut squash cheez pesto sauce on top), the buffalo cauliflower bites, and the jackfruit nacho tots. Everything was delicious, and we didn't leave stuffed -- just satisfied. They also have larger entrees (we had mostly starters), and some desserts from a local vegan bakery. They were out of their coffee, however, so no coffee drinks were available. They also have beer & wine available!

Pros: Good sized portions, Fair prices

Could have eaten EVERY MEAL here! - Edit

So, this trip I had the Thai Crunch wrap with a peanut sauce that was SO AMAZING, I ordered it as a salad to take home for dinner. It was so fresh, crisp, and flavorful that I couldn't get enough! I also tried the mushroom gyro, which was really filling and delicious. A solid option. My father, a proud omnivore, had the tacos, and he really enjoyed them as well...which is saying something. If I can get him into a vegan place and he doesn't complain, I KNOW the food holds up on it's own! ;)

Quaint and tastety - Edit

We had a solid meal from Lulu’s. It is a quaint place in a neat St. Louis neighbourhood. The food was excellent, especially the pretzel bites and the vegan burger on a pretzel bun. We had to order to go as it wasn’t quite dinner time and we needed to get back on the road. We would love to come again and eat in.

Noce variety - Edit

This is a very nice vegan café that as far as I know only offers vegan options. I had the buffalo cauliflower wrap, which was very good! The cauliflower was crispy, the buffalo sauce was tangy, and it was very large… I almost couldn't finish it! They have a good selection of vegan options, and it's not all kale and quinoa! LOL a very hip place to grab a quick bite when you're on the run in the city

Pros: all vegan, good selection

Cons: location (I live in the suburbs)

Vegetarian, but not necessarily healthy! - Edit

OK, this is very tasty and fun food, which hasn't moved far from its food truck roots. The problem is that it's just not very healthy! Fried food leads the menu. Sure, they are tasty, and they are vegan, but the deep fried buffalo cauliflower is just not health food, so don't kid yourself! It would be nice to see some lighter, healthier items fill out the menu (that are as tasty as what's already there!).

Pros: all veggie, tasty, fun relaxed atmosphere

Cons: not very healthy, not too cheap either

Love at first bite - Edit

I had a serious panic moment after my first bite of a Loaded Nacho Crunch Wrap because I thought they must have gotten my order wrong- there was no way it was meat and dairy free! Everything I've tried is delicious so far and I have to pace myself not to eat there every single day! Love that St Louis has these kind of awesome vegan options.

Favorite place ever! - Edit

I love the history of lulus starting as a food truck. We are frequent visitors of Lulus it is by far our favorite restaurant ever. I have non veg friends who love this place. Everything on the menu is phenomenal and you can tell there is so much move and thought put into creating the food. So lucky to have this in STL!

So so good - Edit

I was torn which entrée to get, so I ordered two. No regrets.

Lulu’s is 100% plant-based aka vegan. I really like the ethics of their business. They compost over 95% of their waste, local and organic when possible, grow some of their ingredients in the space and on top of the food truck, and structuring their menu around the seasons. They have a beautiful patio area, so we couldn’t resist sitting outside. The inside was welcoming as well. Meters were free after 7pm, which was another bonus!

The first entrée that caught my eye was the sweet potato black bean burger with chipotle sauce on a pretzel bun. I am such a sucker for a pretzel bun.

It was fantastic. I want another one right now. The textures and flavors blended together perfectly. I also enjoyed the fresh red onion and greens.

My second entrée was the Buddha Bowl. Made with udon noodles, marinated tofu which is then stir-fried with shredded carrots, broccoli, green onion, and cilantro. Some peanuts and black sesame seeds on top finish it off. Oh yea, the best part. The housemade peanut sauce. I am also a sucker for a good peanut sauce, and this one was one of the good ones. I also enjoyed the different textures and flavor blending together in the bowl on this one.

I also enjoyed a Bushelhead Cider which was slightly dry while still somehow remaining sweet. I really enjoyed it as well.

If you are in the area or just passing through, make a point to find their food truck or visit the restaurant. Oh seriously, get one of their pretzel buns. The servers were super friendly. On the way out I got a high-five from both of them for finishing both entrees.

Pros: pretzel bun, awesome staff

Cons: only street parking

Good food, a bit too spicy - Edit

The BBQ Jack was great.
The Jackfruit Banh Mi was really good too.
My personal favorite was the Buddha Bowl.
We also ordered the kids taco and the Tater Tots. Both were spicy which was a problem for a 3 yr old.
The healthy cookies were yummy but the cupcake was way too sweet.

The restaurant is nice and welcoming.

Savory Menu, Very Friendly Staff - Edit

Savory menu food, cool art work, and friendly staff. Winter menu focuses on butternut squash, potatoes and cauliflower in bowls, wraps, tacos and burgers. I enjoyed the Quinoa bowl, especially the paring of the butternut squash with the walnut pesto sauce. I invited 4 non-vegans and they really liked the falafel wrap, tater tots and chili. The falafel wrap smelled amazing and looked like a gyro! They have a few gluten free options. Non-vegans liked the ranch sauce but felt so so on the butternut squash cheese. Unfortunately by 8:00 they had sold out of the special cupcakes so if you want dessert you should arrive earlier. I will definitely go back and bring more friends to try it. All of the staff members had a lot of enthusiasm for the food and enjoyed talking to customers. It's nice to go to a restaurant where they're excited to welcome new people.

So happy I learned about this place! - Edit

I am transitioning to a whole food, plant base diet. I was excited about this place. Lulu and her staff were super friendly and proud of their food, which they should be. It was delicious, filling and affordable! I was happy to see that they offer call in carry-out. Will absolutely be coming back.

Pros: whole food, plant-based food , affordable , bike rack outside
