Great Vegan Mexican Food - Edit

They have a separate vegan menu! Everything I’ve tried has been delicious. My favorite is the flautas. They even have dessert tamales!!! My favorite of those is the pineapple. The food also tastes great when picked up.
The staff is also super friendly and supportive of vegans.

Pros: extensive and separate vegan menu, vegan dessert , delicious food

VEGAN menu PREMIER - Edit

Today, Momcorn launched their vegan menu. I was so excited to order from an exclusively veg menu, that I ordered: 4 corn flautas, one mushroom quesadilla, and a cactus & melted "cheese" dip appetizer- costing about $30 for 2 people.

The cactus dip came first. I could recognize the taste of Daiya right away. The blend of veggies was fresh and heavenly.

The flautas were our favorite. The filling of peas and potato was wrapped in a crispy corn tortilla, drizzled with vegan sour cream, and most delectably, avocado.

You can ask the owner all about their authentic Latin-American style, they are there often. I thanked them for extending their menu so compassionately, and she (the owner) revealed that, upon it's launch, the vegan menu attracted an unusual amount of business- the place was busy all day!

We sparked conversation with the waitress, who informed us that if anyone is visiting town (perhaps at Six Flags across the street) and needs vegan food to come to YOU, MomCorn DELIVERS!

I even met a vegan couple sitting by my mom and I. We all predicted a loyal following of enthusiastic vegans at MomCorn for years to come. I sincerely hope for their success.

Pros: Ingredients labeled on menu, New all-vegan menu in addition to regular menu, Delivery

New Vegan menu available! - Edit

Momcorn offers vegan cheese, vegan mayo, and vegan sour cream starting 1/9/18! They have a vegan al pastor, which is a new take on the original marinated pork. Instead of pork, they substitute it for eggplant. They have their own special dressing called latin fire (amazing on anything, not just salads) and they have gone and made us a special vegan version of it! Their beans are lard free and their rice is 100% vegan! They even have their own house made mexican hummus which has avocado, cilantro, and serrano peppers. Very yummy! So many things worth trying here!

Pros: Lots of vegan options, vegan cheese,mayo,sour cream, inventive meat substitutions

Cons: Vegan options a little pricier than than nonvegan

Corny but delicious - Edit

I honestly picked this location with a friend of mine because we thought the name was ridiculous. Although the atmosphere is corny I'm more ways than one, the mushroom tacos were everything I could have hoped for. I would absolutely recommend it to both vegetarian and non-vegetarian friends of mine

They still brought out my meal with sour cream and cheese.... so we waited for them to remake my food but braught out my husbands food so he waited and his got cold. when my good arrived they forgot the lettuce and tomatoe. i gave up ate it paid and left we ended up going to chipotle after.

Cons: small portions.
