Awesome! - Edit

Thanks to Happy Cow, I found this awesome place! I went directly to Spiral upon arriving in Texas! The food was delicious and the staff was wonderful! The only negative was that I only got to go there once. I will definitely go again if I'm in the area!

Spiral for real - Edit

Spiral is my favorite vegan restaurant in the DFW metroplex, either of their locations, all great food.
I travel the country for work and hands down it's one of my top five favs.

A Fort Worth Icon - Edit

This has been our vegan go-to place for years. It's located on beautiful Magnolia Ave and it's even better now that they are serving brunch all day on Saturday and Sunday. This is the place to go for hearty vegan comfort food! In addition, their baked goods are amazing - from their blueberry pie to their special-occasion cakes - it's all good.

Pros: brunch all day on Sat and Sun

Traditional American Food - Edit

On our road trip in the South we really wanted a traditional burger and shake meal... and it was amazing!!
There is not one thing I wouldn't recommend. We had three burgers, spinach quesadilla, gumbo (spécial of the month) a shake, club sandwich and the philly.
All was really good!

Pros: Food Choice, Service

A Delicious Splurge - Edit

Living in DFW, I visited Spiral Diner on countless occasions. I never had anything I didn't like (though the Reuben wasn't my favorite).

Totally vegan restaurant. Super nice staff.

If you are in the mood for a burger, their variety is excellent. I personally loved their wraps and sandwiches; especially the Veggie Wrap, Crispy Spring Wrap, and Chick'n-Less Salad Sandwich.

This is a restaurant to go to when you have some extra calories to spend. Get something for dessert; it's all delicious.

Good place to take non-vegetarian/non-vegan friends.

Pros: Delicious Food and Desserts, Sustainable Practices, Good service

Cons: There are Healthier Options, Small Location, Parking Sometimes Difficult

It's a Pokestop too - Edit

In town on business and found this on the app. I had a cowboy burger with a cashew-quinoa patty. Holy crap was it delicious. I then decided to have the Death Star for dessert (they had me at Death Star). I am dying, not literally but figuratively from this. Super yummy and the espresso shot on top is delightful.

Pros: 100% vegan, environmentally friendly, gives back to the community

Cons: I don't live here to enjoy it more often.

Vegan Sweet Tooth Satisfied! - Edit

What excites me most about coming to the Spiral Dinner is getting a chance to try whatever desserts they have in their case, in addition to their mouth watering dessert menu! They make this divine, Twix Inspired Icecream that is simply decedent stop one of their hot, nutty, brownies. My non-vegan boyfriend was in awe at how good the food all was.

Pros: Amazing atmosphere , Incredible food, Good value

I hope this place exists forever - Edit

I've eaten at both the Spiral in Dallas and the one in Fort Worth. I like the Fort Worth Diner much better. The staff in FW are awesome, very helpful. The food is just outstanding (try the Ate Layer Burrito!), they have several great beer selections for those of us who want it and OMG the vegan ice cream is out of this world. If you like coffee, try the Deathstar sundae! The atmosphere in Fort Worth is very eclectic and funky and the diner is located in what looks like a really cool area of other businesses and restaurants although the Spiral may be the only straight vegan establishment. I totally give them 5 stars and will definitely be back there again and again. Outstanding dining experience.

Pros: Outstanding food, Varied menu items, 100% vegan

Cons: Possibly a short wait depending on day and time

Amazing! - Edit

We are on a road trip and last minute decided to get some food. We noticed this place on Happy Cow and decided to try it and boy am I happy we did! It is amazing! I highly recommend the nachos. They were huge and I couldn't stop eating them! My boyfriend had the bacon burger and he said it was really good as well. We also got 2 cookies upon leaving which were fantastic. They're very chewy and fluffy. If you are vegan or not, or have people with you that are not vegan, and deciding for a place to try, eat here. The food is all around great.

Pros: Nacho "Cheese", Friendly staff

Cons: None

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.

Om nom nom, delicious vegan food! - Edit

I moved about a year ago to a different state, and I dream/ imagine eating here often. Don't even get me started on their chocolate shakes...they make the best shakes I've tasted in my entire life, no joke. I've tried all their veggie burgers and they're out of this world, they put a special 'sauce' on most of them that gives it so much pizazz.. and their potato salad is quite tasty as well. Everything on their menu is sure to be delicious. Their cookies are also thick, chewy, and yummy.. try it underneath one of their vegan desserts like the sundae with the cookie on the bottom and your taste buds will be blown out of this world. The service is pretty quick, even when it's more crowded as I've been here many times. It has a comfortable, casual atmosphere...all of the staff here are open, concerned, and kind. They also sell a few vegan foods in a mini fridge, as well as shirts in the front of the store. Definitely try eating here, I'd say it's one of the best vegan diners/ restaurants in the world for sure, and no, that isn't an understatement. Dine here and you'll see why for yourself.

Pros: Delicious food, Chill atmosphere, Great service

Cons: None

I dream about this place from afar - Edit

When I go to Dallas to visit my brother we always drive out here to eat a few times. The Dallas one is good too but doesn't have the same feel as this one. I like a bustling diner with signs that judge you for wasting napkins to give the full effect of a place trying to make a difference. Everything I've tried is amazing and I've had nothing but great service every time I go. Thanks for being awesome.

Pros: Great Food, Great Atmosphere, CLean

One of the best sandwiches I've ever had! - Edit

When I rolled into town for the 2015 Green Party of Texas annual meeting, I learned that many of them had gathered here, so I headed on down. Little did I know what a treat I had in store for me! Not only did I have The Best Philly Cheese Steak sandwich on the planet (well, maybe except for in Philly itself), I also had a great beer list to sort through, including many local brews. Mmm!

And I wanted to try some of what everybody else ordered, but they ate it all. The "meet bawls" looked good. Oh, my, I'll have to go back. Maybe even drive over next time I'm in Dallas. (I live near Houston, so that's a bit of a drive; besides, we have our own favorite places, too.)

But I would spell it "Philly Cheez Stake" instead, since the steak is seitan and the cheese is vegan, too. As is the entire menu, as I understand it.

Pros: All vegan, Great beer list, nice murals

Cons: I need more positive options than three.

Lunch and a Milkshake! - Edit

For a day trip to Fort Worth, this is a perfect vegan place for lunch. We love that everything here is vegan, plus they even sell some grocery items. Our favorites here: peanut butter cookies and cream milkshake (if you ask for it you shall receive), their homemade coffee ice cream (not always available), and the variety of wraps are very good. The cookies are also excellent! The staff is cool and friendly. Always a treat to visit this place!

Pros: milkshakes, wraps, awesome, friendly staff

Vegan Haven in Cattle Town - Edit

This place rocks. I tried their biscuits and gravy and also had the bbq salad. The biscuits and gravy were so good. The salad was also on of the best salads I have ever had! Highly recommend this place.

Pros: cheap, tasty, lots of options

Great Vegan Spot! - Edit

This place is unbelievably good! So good, in fact, that the last time I was in Fort Worth for the weekend, my fiancee and I ate there 3 times. Their menu is huge, and it seems like everything on it is amazing.

So far, we've had the Hummus, Hot Nacho Cheese & Chips, Savory Seitan Wrap, Philly Cheese Steak, Cookies 'n Cream Shake, and Cinnamon Rolls. They were all some of the best vegan food I've ever had. They also have a great vegan beer and wine selection.

My only complaint is that there isn't one close to where I live. Hands down, the best vegan restaurant I've ever been to.

One of our all-time favorites - Edit

Spiral Diner has been our go-to restaurant during trips to Ft Worth for years, since they were at their original location. It's always been a treat, and they keep improving. The vibe is great, with friendly, home-style service, and their signature dishes are super-yummy. They are also to be commended in particular for their exemplary efforts to green their business.

The menu is quite diverse, offering something for pretty much everyone .What they do best, in our opinion, is the dishes true to their name: veganized comfort food. The Jamaican Jerk Sandwich has been a perennial favorite of mine. The Seitan Wrap is good, too. All the shakes are yummy (peanut butter is my favorite), and most of the desserts are awesome, too — especially the brownie. But is isn't all diner-style here: They also offer a generous array of healthier options, including some raw items, half a dozen salads, and fresh juices. We really appreciate this, as it allows us to create a more balanced meal, with a little comfort food and some healthy green stuff, so we feel good not only while we eat it but also afterward.

That said, not every item on the menu has the same wow for our tastes. For example, the pasta dishes might disappoint folks looking for Italian authenticity, and likewise for the Asian-eque dishes, and the snickerdoodles are a little too dry and bready, not crunchy the way we like them.

But, whatever your tastes, once you identify the dishes that please your palate, you'll be satisfied again and again. Even the carnivores we've brought to Spiral Diner have said they've never had a meal here they didn't like.

There's parking in the back (both directly behind Spiral Diner and also in an overflow lot across the street).

Enjoy! :-)


Updated from previous review on Monday September 19, 2011

Pros: All vegan, with many organic ingredients, Some very tasty dishes, Laudable efforts to be green

Great Totally Vegan Restaurant! - Edit

Spiral is my go-to restaurant when I am trying to expose friends and family to vegan food. A bit of a splurge and not the healthiest vegan restaurant in FTW, Spiral is a fun place to go and indulge every once in a while.

One reason I love Spiral is because I know that everything on the menu is something that fits into my dietary restrictions, I am not just limited to a fruit salad like I have been at other "vegan-friendly" restaurants in FTW. My favorite thing to get is the Pasta Prima Vera with added mushrooms, but I have tried their burgers, chili, wraps, and PB&J and all of them were delicious as well. They also have a variety of fun vegan ice cream, sundaes, and smoothies!

Parking can sometimes be tough and there is a threat of being towed if you park in the wrong lot so keep an eye out! Otherwise, Spiral is in a very hip part of town and has a neat aesthetic. I've noticed that they have either really great waiters working (helpful, attentive, and friendly) or fairly bad ones (absent, forgetful, standoff-ish), so it is kind of just the luck of the draw.

Overall, I would highly recommend Spiral to anyone looking for a hearty vegan meal and hip atmosphere!

Pros: Variety of COMPLETELY Vegan Food, Neat Venue with Outdoor Seating (kinda), Cute Mini-Market in the Restaurant

Cons: Parking is always a hassle, (Depending on who you get) Waitstaff , $$$

Cons: Small restaurant, Sometimes crowded

Great vegan food - Edit

I went there Saturday with my mom and we both agreed that the food there was great! I had the chicken-less chicken salad sandwich with potato salad and for dessert a cookies n' cream shake. I have heard from other people that Spiral has the best vegan food in Fort Worth, and they weren't kidding! I will be going there again in the future.

Pros: good food, staff is very professional

Cons: It is a little pricey

The Deathstar Sundae Awesome Indulgence! - Edit

Went there twice on my trip to Fort Worth. The first time, the service was really bad but I was super happy when we went back on Sunday! Great waitress, Heidi, totally made up for the first time!

The food was good, nice variety. Wish there were more gluten-free and non-soy items but overall had no complaints the second time!

Had the Hot Hummus wrap with the pasta salad and the Deathstar desert. Their strawberry ice cream is the only option made from coconut milk.

Would recommend, nice atmosphere and food! Hopefully you'll get a great waitress too!

Pros: atmosphere, good food, good portion size

Cons: service consistency, noisy
