YUM-mazing vegan options! - Edit

I get so happy when I see “Vegan” at a restaurant. Ate the most YUM-mazing vegan taco salad at Salsa’s Taco Bar in Santa Cruz. They offer a separate vegan menu with a ton of options. The salsas are spicy and delicious. The staff are friendly and helpful. The quality is great and the prices are reasonable. I will definitely be going back. Just wish they had one in the north bay. Then again, maybe it’s best they don’t. I would gain so much weight because I’d eat there everyday!!!!

Pros: Several vegan options to choose from

awesome food and awesome service - Edit

BTW: I never give a place 5 stars unless they're fully vegan.

That being said, this place is awesome. The owner is so sweet and loves his "vegan friends". They have awesome burritos with daiya, tofutti sour cream, French fries, etc.

The staff are so nice and accommodating. Awesome Mexican food!

Pros: daiya, tofutti , French fries

Cons: small , crowded, not 100% vegan

We love Salsa's - Edit

We had lunch at Salsa's yesterday and as usual, it did not disappoint.

I had their Vegan Burrito which was huge and full of sauteed veggies. My son had the simple burrito which was also great.

I was surprised to learn that they had a separate fryer for cooking their chips. I had never thought about how chips were cooked at taquerias and think it's pretty cool that they even do this separately.

Pros: Huge vegan menu, Friendly counter person, Delicious food

Cons: Small-limited seating, No salsa fresca (lots of other choices)

Really nice vegan food - Edit

Finally, Spanish rice without chicken stock!

The salsa bar is extensive with a lot of hot options, and there is a nice selection of vegan options.

I had a quick chat with one of the cooks and they said they even have separate friers for the vegan stuff. Awesome.

The staff was very nice, and the food was excellent.

We'll be going there often.

Pros: Separate food prep areas, Good selection, Hot salsas!

Cons: Small place (to go might be better)

Nice lil vegan menu - pretty tasty, hefty portions - Edit

Stopped by while on a bike ride around town, had the vegan burrito. It was big, tasty, loaded with veggies, topped with guac, and was actually pretty tasty. I'm not a fan of Mexican food in the States, but it was good. They also have a salsa bar with lots of different types to throw on your food. Staff was friendly and helpful.

Pros: Portions, Tasty

Vegan Mexican? Yes!! - Edit

Seemed too good to be true -- a long list of vegan options on the menu, so I had to ask, "When it says cheese and sour cream on the enchiladas, is it dairy-free?" Yes, I was assured, and so my wife had the spinach enchiladas and I tried a chimichanga with black beans and fajita veggies (red and green peppers, onions). Had chips and a variety of salsas while we waited -- the salsa bar included photos and list of ingredients for each of the six salsa options, letting you know which were hot or mild. Small seating area, got pretty cold in there until someone finally closed the front door, but the food was hot and tasty, would try it again. Thumbs up!

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Well-labeled salsa bar, Friendly service

Cons: Tight quarters, Noisy
