The owner threw dead meat on my table and laughed!

We have supported this business for years particularly through the pandemic we eat here at least three times a week and have brought many patrons. We will never frequent this location again. The male owner is a patriarchal [censored] and unless he is removed I would not support him. I was literally sitting at my table he knows we are vegan he carried a huge slab of red Dead flash and slammed it down on my table while he laughed. I have been vegetarian or vegan since 1975 this was very traumatizing for me please tell everyone you know

Amazing! The food was delicious and the service was so friendly and quick!

My husband and I were in Mesa for a concert and ate here. He’s vegetarian and I’m vegan, we both had empanada platters and were impressed! The flavors were outstanding and the platters was fresh and filling. They have a great dessert and beer selection to boot. 10/10 will eat here again! Would give 5 stars but they do serve meat so the app won’t allow it :(

Pros: Vegan options , Vegetarian options, Delicious!

Great spot in downtown Mesa

They have a really awesome vegan platter with your choice of empanada (I love the potato achiote), caramelized plantains, rice, beans & avocado. Everything is fresh and flavorful. Prices are decent & they have a good selection of beers.

I always get the platter with no cheese/crema. They have 2 vegan empanadas, a veggie/chickpea and a potato. I always get both and that green salsa that comes with is so good! They also have pbj and pb banana empanadas for dessert. They also have a cute patio and serve beer.

Pros: Friendly employees
