First Review by veganri

Just Okay - Edit

I arrive and there was plenty of seating. I liked the decor, especially the picture of Richard Prior (classic). I went to the restroom and I must say I felt like the facilities were fit for a queen, or king....nice, spacious and clean.
I ordered the seitan wings sweet Thai chili flavored. They were just okay, nothing to write home about. As I was sitting I asked for a straw....I hate it when waitstaff touch the drinking straw with their dare hands...disgusting! As I was waiting for my order I realized that all the staff made everything with their bare hands, fries, bowls, everything. I understand the pizza dough may need to be rolled out and tossed with bare hands, but I just can't .

Pros: Nice restrooms, Nice staff

Cons: Taste , Food handling

Gets better and better - Edit

If I could give 5 stars I would, but on Happy Cow you can only do that for places that are fully Veg.

Okay...the first couple times we went to Pizza J, everything was decent. Nothing too crazy....okay pizza, good seitan wings. (a little too well done the second time we had them)

However, the last few months it seems like there's been a great change as everything has been very consistent and even better than when they first opened. The vegan pizza options are great and they are always willing to do substitutes, and the wings are always perfect. Note: Tuesdays are 50 cent wing nights and that includes the seitan wings!!!

The alcohol selection has been nice, and we have even been in when they had trivia nights before. Very fun!

Everytime we have gone in we have never had a wait, which is nice, and we have never felt rushed by the servers. Great service, great food. I live an hour away yet I want to go down here weekly!

Pros: VEGAN CHEESE that doesnt cost extra, Awesome staff that never rushes you, Great Atmosphere

Cons: Its not located closer to me :P

Shop made cashew cheese! Great crust! - Edit

Pizza J, a sister restaurant to Julians (just a few blocks away) opened in the fall of 2015. They have upped the vegan pizza game for RI! Virtually any pie can be made vegan with their own cashew cheese - and... get this... THEY DON'T CHARGE EXTRA FOR VEGAN CHEESE! In defense of places that do charge extra for vegan cheese (I'm in the vegan food business,) offering vegan cheese is actually expensive and not that easy. The pies are square. The crust gets some nice bubbles! In addition to pizza, they offer fried seitan with your choice of several vegan sauces (we had whisky cola last time.) They also have 2 vegan sandwiches - a vegan Bhan Mi and a vegan RI carnival style Sausage and Pepper Grinder. If you go past the bathrooms, take a right and peak around the corner - you'll find a mini-arcade!

Pros: Don't charge extra for vegan cheese!, Plenty of vegan options!, Secret arcade hidden in the back!
