First Review by kparent

disappointing dining - Edit

Fast food customer service and quality for moderate/high restaurant prices. The vegetarian menu is okay (about 1/3 the size of the regular menu) but the vegan menu is about 1/4 of the vegetarian menu. Super limited choices with only limited ingredient plates. Burnt chips, $1.55 for 2tbs guacamole, and overcooked tamales to the point of being too hard to chew. This was my last 2 dining experiences here.

Pros: Separate vegetarian menu, Quick service, Clean

Cons: Fast food customer service and quality for moderat, Extremely limited vegan options, Bad food

Hearty Mexican Food - Edit

Beautiful interior and ample outdoor seating. They have a separate vegetarian menu. Huge portions! Handmade corn tortillas (machine press)with flour tortillas also available. Re-fried beans have lard :>(

Very fresh salads. Not cheap, but reasonable for what you get.

Good American-Mexican, lots of veg/vegan choices - Edit

Separate vegan and veggie menus make it very clear what is safe to order. You order and pay at the front and they deliver it to the table, so take time to look at the veg menus before you get in line.
I had a veggie tostada, which was very large and tasty. My vegan husband had a butternut squash and poblano tamale which was nice as well. We had a guacamole as well with home made chips. Be sure to grab some of the home made salsas from the cart before you sit down. Lots of indoor and outdoor seating.
Tasty, reasonably priced, great for meat eaters and veggies alike.
