Delicious Spiral Diner - Edit

Deliciously tasty, 100% vegan restaurant. Friendly knowledgeable staff. Convenient location, free parking in lot, or nearby on street. Sells some vegan groceries/prepared food, for making your own, in addition to the delights that come from the kitchen, including old favorites like tofu scramble and innovative entrees, sandwiches, wraps, burritos, sides and luscious desserts. Excellent Mac and cheese with tasty creamy sauce bathing al dente elbow macaroni: done just right &good, hot or cold. Breakfast available all day. Had enjoyed their food at events around Dallas, like Texas Veggie Fair. Glad I finally had chance to dine at the restaurant; well worth the drive!

Pros: 100% vegan comfort food, Friendly, knowledgeable personnel, Delicious, tasty innovative food

Great! - Edit

I've only been here once after getting picked up from the airport in Dallas. The interior was very cute, and the service was good. I had the spinach quesadilla with tofu as my protein. I wasn't a fan of the texture of the tofu but that was my own mistake for ordering it instead of tempeh. The overall flavor was good, it was my first time having vegan cheese and it tasted pretty realistic. My dad got the portabella burger, and said it was good but they used a pretty small mushroom cap compared to what I thought. After lunch, I got a brownie which was the best vegan brownie I've had so far. I look forward to coming back next time I'm in the Dallas area.

Don't wait or hesitate to go - Edit

I have been vegan for 5 years and was turned off by faux meats. My impression was that's all Spiral offered, so never went. It's not the case and my loss for not going back sooner.

Went for brunch and could not get enough of the pancakes with blueberries. What makes them so darn good?!

The staff are great, the atmosphere feels diner authentic and great options.

Pros: all vegan. , relaxed fun atmosphere. , great service.

spiraling to greatness - Edit

Spiral Diner was one of the coolest restaurant experiences we have ever had! The food in both taste and variety was unbelievable. Favourites included vegan spaghetti and meatballs with pineapple and olives, a great burger and homemade tortilla chips with a trio of homemade dips. Outstanding drinks included vegan milkshakes, smoothies and free refills of on tap agave sweetened sodas. Desserts were great as well especially the Star Wars inspired sundae. At the checkout counter there was a well stocked small food shop with KD style boxes of vegan mac and cheese (another trip souvenir stocking stuffer). Spiral Diner was a close second with a near perfect score in our 2014 road trip “Restaurant Wars”. You must go there if you are in Dallas!

Charming place, delucious food! - Edit

Old fashioned diner offers and excellent all vegan menu. We had the quesadillas (spinach and mushroom), chocolate chip cookie, latte and, chai tea. The quesadillas are sure to satisfy everyone so bring your non-vegan friends! We love chai and this one of the better ones we've had. Loved it!

Pros: Not expensive at all.

Cool Place - Edit

Good Food. A lot of fake meat and cheese but you would probably assume that before going. It is a diner after all. The service was great and staff was very friendly. I felt like it was on the expensive side but for me it was worth it because it was 100% vegan and I didn't have to scrutinize the menu for ingredients. I highly recommend the queso. It was delicious. The tiramisu ice cream was so good it was hard to believe it was vegan. There's a lot to choose from and they have breakfast all day. I went with 2 meat eaters and they were completely satisfied. The atmosphere is awesome and I loved the music they played. They also sell some vegan groceries.

Pros: vegan groceries, friendly staff

Cons: expensive, parking isn't great

Vegan Junk Food Fix - Edit

Been out drinking all night? Been out drinking all day? Want to have a drink? This is probably your best go-to place for hangover help, 'middle of getting your drink on' food, or 'need a drink and grub'. Basically a huge assortment of vegan "junk" food. All pretty good looking. Funny experience...we were waited on by the ENTIRE staff (upwards of 6 peeps)...well, perhaps not the kitchen staff, but everyone on front of the house duty visited our table. Got the quesadillas - didn't want them on flour tortillas so they subbed corn. Twas nice of 'em.

Excellent - Edit

The Dallas location is every bit as good as the Fort Worth original, and maybe friendlier. Highly recommended for meals, snacks, drinks (including fresh juices and great vegan milkshakes) and desserts.

BEST NACHOS EVER - Edit

Seriously, this place is fantastic. My husband and I have eaten here a couple of times now, and we absolutely love it! You MUST get the nachos and cheese. You absolutely must. It is positively delicious. I'm also a big fan of their all day lunch plate, which is an awesome meal, especially for WFPB. The quesadilla and seitan tacos are also a stellar choice. Plus, the atmosphere of this place is pretty incredible too. Just saying, it is an awesome looking place, with super friendly and happy staff. I wish I could give them 6 cows.This place is one of my all time favorite restaurants. (NOTE: I have been to both locations,Ft. Worth and Dallas, and both of them are just as stellar as the other one. I've left the same review for both)

Pros: Amazing food, Awesome staff, Best nachos ever

Cons: Honestly, I can't think of one.

Awesome! Especially in Texas!! - Edit

Great diner, huge menu. Hard to decide what to order since it's entirely vegan! My non-veg friend really enjoyed her meal too. Awesome dessert menu, both on the actual menu, as well as the two glass cases with cupcakes, cinnamon rolls, sliced cake, etc. They make their own vegan ice cream which is deliciously creamy. A must visit if you're in Dallas!

Pros: Huge menu, Delicious desserts

Lovely options. Ironically, no french fries. Nacho's are a must. Great service and atmosphere. Better than some vegan restaurants in L.A.

Total VEGAN AMERICANA ! - Edit

Spiral is a must for everyone who wants clean, natural, organic, VEGAN food, free of animal contents ! The portions are gigantic and the place is spacious and comfortable. Located in a peaceful setting, the smell of fresh vegan food makes you want to try everything offered on the menu of healthy variety.
Non-pretentious, just honest vegan food with true Southwest flair if you so choose.

lives up to the hype! - Edit

Was in town for a show and was thrilled to have time to finally try some infamous Spiral food! I got the Big Kahuna and a slice of strawberry cheese cake to-go one night, and went back the next day for brunch and got a single pancake and the breakfast quesadilla. All were mindblowingly delicious. The big kahuna burger (I chose the cashew quinoa patty) was so many levels of awesome! And the pancake was the best vegan pancake I've ever had. The quesadilla was ooey-gooey scrumptious!
So happy Spiral Diner exists!!

Love the Spiral Diner! - Edit

It's so cool that there are two locations, because sometimes we're in Dallas, sometimes in Fort Worth, and either way we know we can have a fantastic lunch! The wraps are excellent! The homemade ice cream and milkshakes are delicious and great texture. Love the cookies! Great atmosphere and friendly staff.

Pros: milkshakes and homemade ice cream, cookies, creative wraps

Mediocre Burger, but Great Desserts - Edit

Overall a decent option, but not great. I had the bacon cheeseburger, a soda, and one of the brownie sundae options. They make their own seitan bacon, and I just don't like it. Too thick, not smoky enough, not crispy. I'd prefer tempeh bacon or even just those lightlife strips. HOWEVER, my sundae was amazing. Spicy candied pecans, chocolate and caramel sauces, and a very generous serving. Also, it's worth noting that the service was excellent, the restaurant was clean, and they have a small selection of vegan snack foods for sale near the register.

Pros: Awesome dessert options, Small market in the store, Excellent service

Cons: Meh bacon

They have everything! - Edit

I love this place! I plan to go every Sunday for brunch. I'm going to work my way right through the menu. I started with the pancakes and hash browns and freshly juiced orange juice. They also have shirts and products to buy and take home.

Pros: Great food!, Great service!, Everything is vegan!

Cons: Tiny parking lot., Small and crowded, When busy can be noisy

Definitely go here! - Edit

The best part about this place- besides being 100% vegan and having an awesomely friendly team of staff is that every omni that I have ever taken here is always pleasantly surprised. This would be great for a vegan meet-up or for a mixed group. Their VLT is so good- I've gotten it almost every time I've went and their milkshakes are amazing!

Pros: Friendly staff, Excellent food for great prices, Fun theme

Excellant Find In DFW Area! - Edit

This place is really cool. It's an old dinner with a small selection of groceries that you can buy at the entrance area. They were voted as having the best nachos in Dallas. Their prices are great because you can buy craft beer for about $3. Last but not least the food is phenomenal. You have to try this place!

Pros: cheap, Tasty
