delicious vegan options but be careful - Edit

They mean well, and the vegan/vegetarian options are delicious and appreciated, but they are understandably not automatic. For example, if you ask for the separate menu, they gladly give it to you but if you order off of it, (I got the vegan beef tacos) the rice that comes with it on the side has regular ground beef in it! After taking a couple bites I asked the waitress if it was vegetarian and she realized shoot, it's so automatic there they didn't realize it shouldn't go with the vegan dish. She brought me out a plate of mixed roasted veggies for no extra charge, and they were good, but only if you're ok with a lot of garlic and butter. I love garlic but even the butter was a bit much for my Omni date. I ended up stealing most of his delightfully crisp fries. The vegan beef tacos themselves were great and very tasty, but I chuckled... They had melted cheese on them. That's fine, I know it wasn't vegan cheese, but for a steak house to even make the effort is already a good step. We don't usually go to steakhouses so for us to have anything is a plus. I won't go out of my way to eat there again but if I find myself in company that wants to go there I'm very glad I have options and will just be more careful about what I order. Yes, when ordering vegan options, the actual item is, but it's surroundings may not be.

Pros: delicious vegetarian and vegan options, they're cool about you asking for veg alternatives, lovely ambiance

Cons: it's still a steak house, you have to be doubly careful even with the veg me

Best Vegan Ribs! - Edit

If Happy Cow allowed a 5 star rating on a non-veg restaurant I would have given Maderas 5 stars! I ordered the vegan ribs with sweet potato fries and green beans and it was truly one of the best meals I've ever had! Our waitress was excellent and the atmosphere was great. Not all of their sides are vegan so double check if you aren't sure! I highly recommend Maderas!

Now you can go to a steakhouse! - Edit

I'm not strict, but I do miss the ambiance, etc. of a decent steakhouse, and all that goes with it. But at Maderas, I'm not reduced to just salads and fries; we can get vegan ribs or chicken... yahoo! Its not bad fair either; the sides are awesome too! Just be careful and aware that most of the sides aren't vegan, just ask!

Pros: vegan ribs!! steakhouse ambiance

Cons: must ask for veg/vegan menu

Added veg friendly menu - Edit

This is a steakhouse that I thought I would never go to again, after going vegan last September.

When I found out my wife's family wanted to go there to celebrate Father's Day with my father-in-law, I was prepared to find a nice (but boring) salad. To my surprise, they recently added a veg-friendly menu with items like BBQ soy ribs, BBQ vegan pulled chicken sandwich and vegan chicken enchiladas. Many other options were available but that is what my wife, daughter and I decided on.

The rib portion for the "full rack" was quite large! I had my father and brother in law try them and they were shocked at the meaty texture. They were definitely a hit! I also had a taste of the enchilada that my wife got and it was very flavorful. I did not get to try my daughter's chicken sandwich but she definitely enjoyed it!
While I would prefer a full vegan menu, it was great to see that they have made an effort by adding a pretty substantial veg-menu. You can find the veg menu on their new website

Pros: Separate veg menu, Great for omni/veg celebrations, Always great service

Cons: Pricey, Small parking lot
