very good - Edit

I love the food. I wish they would mark the dressing and add ons as vegan or not. Last I checked the Lemon ZaTar dressing was vegan but most of the others are not. The BBQ tofu was vegan as well. The Southern bowl take off the cheese and sub the dressing is a winner. The staff is really nice and seems to get the order right.

Pros: good food, healthy options, friendly efficient staff

Cons: no clear vegan markings, always busy

Favorite fast food in town - Edit

If I can sneak in here without a line (usually packed) I get the southern without cheese and the honey dressing. With those changes it makes a fantastic chipotle line style vegan bowl. The broccoli has a yummy char to it that the BBQ sauce compliments nicely.

Pros: fast food

Cons: usually super busy

Bowls for Days! - Edit

After visiting Roots for a quick lunch on my first day arriving in Charlottesville I was hooked! Don't shy away due to the long line out the door- it moves fast and YES it is worth it. If you like to control what goes into your salad and enjoy super fresh produce this place is for you! Small seating outdoors and a great upstairs area with powerful AC to escape the heat. You will not regret a visit here! Pro-tip: take one home for tomorrow's lunch ;)

Pros: Excellent produce, Tofu options, Reasonable prices

Cons: Complicated ordering to omit animal products, Worker errors, High volume of customers

Great!! - Edit

You can customize your order which is really awesome and the staff was really nice! The food is prepared right in front of you and it's super quick. My mom and I both ordered the Tamari signature bowl and it was delicious! The tofu was on point and it's a big serving so I was very satisfied. I will definitely be going back!
