First Review by The Gay Vegans

difficult for vegans - Edit

Vegans did not create this menu. Potato and carrot is not what one would usually expect at a Mexican restaurant as a meat substitute, how ever at this establishment the only vegan substitute that doesn't cost extra is carrots and potato. The indications on the menu were completely off. Any substitutes cost $1 each, which for obvious reasons is not vegan friendly. Chips and salsa are not free, after the first basket. A "side" of guac is $9.00. everything has cheese or cream on it to start with. Very limited amount of choices.

Pros: you can buy weed next door, and they have good ser

Neither vegan-friendly nor well-prepared - Edit

Came here last night because we were in the mood for Mexican and we saw it on HappyCow. First of all, as a side note from the food, they serve no alcohol, so don't get your heart set on that margarita. The chips taste like they're from a Tostito's bag. When we ordered meals that were "vegan" (despite them having items marked vegan on the menu), our waitress was confused and we had to specify no cheese or cream. My dad's food was still frozen in the middle. Our veggie burrito was swimming in an oily and super salty sauce. We asked for other veggies to be put inside. Otherwise it would have been a very plain rice and bean burrito. The food made me feel pretty weird afterward. Definitely would not recommend for vegans, as the food is extremely simple (no vegan cheese, protein, or sour cream substitutes - they just remove these items so your food is plain).

Cons: food was still frozen in the middle, misunderstanding of vegan, oily, heavy, not flavorful

Damn good food - Edit

I trust Happy Cow reviews and this place sure didn't disappoint. There is a wide selection of vegan options marked in the menu. My husband got the bean and rice burrito and I got the chimichanga. Both were smothered in their famous green chili sauce. If I could bottle it up and take it home To another on everything, I would. The free chips and salsa was some of the best salsa I've ever had. Waitress was super friendly and the food was fresh and piping hot.

I just moved down the road and I know it'll be one of my "regular" dining options.

Pros: vegan options, price, food quality

many vegan options - Edit

This is a tiny restaurant that delivers BIG! Reasonably priced. Many vegan options but be very clear that you don't want cheese. I had the vegan chimichanga and it was the first one I've had since I went vegan. IT WAS DELICIOUS! Filled with potatoes and carrots and topped with vegan green chili! So good! I also wanted to try the tamales, but I couldn't justify ordering 2 entrees. My omnivore family loves their food too. Try it... you'll like it.

Pros: delicious, inexpensive, good options

Cons: service was so so, no ambiance

A Hidden Gem - Edit

Tucked away between a marijuana dispensary and a Vietnamese restaurant is this Mexican restaurant with a surprising availability of vegan/vegetarian menu choices. Featuring the flavors of the Michoacan region of Mexico we thoroughly enjoyed the food. The owner/chef is very knowledgeable about vegan options as was our waiter. The dining area is small and humble in appearance, but clean and well cared for. We tried the frijoles burrito, the potato and carrot chimichanga, and some tamales. All were great, particularly the chimichanga. We took frozen tamales home and they were delicious the next day. We are definitely planning to return to Tadesco.

Pros: Food, Service , Vegan Options

Cons: Parking , Neighborhood

Yum! Yum! Yum! - Edit

Everything I have had at this restaurant is very delicious. In the summer they have an agua de sandia (icy watermelon drink) that is very refreshing. The green chili, mole, salsa, guacamole are very good.

Pros: Staff very friendly

Vegan Green Chili.. oh yeahhh - Edit

I went here because of the positive review and WOW.. This place is really really good! You can almost miss the restaurant driving by and the parking lot can be a little tricky, but well worth it! The owner/chef is very willing to accomodate and adapt his menu to fit vegan needs. Also has an awesome juice bar. The owner is very generous and will bring you all sorts of things to try on the house.

Pros: green chili, vegetarian menu, don't have to explain what "vegan" means

Cons: parking

Amazing vegan Mexican food! - Edit

We are writing ablog post about this but had to rate them here on HappyCow! If you love flavorful Mexican food, you have to check out Tarascos. So many delish options, with amazing service. All made to order so the whole list of veg options can easily be made vegan! I wish we could give 5 stars but it seems only veg places can get 5. You will not regret a visit here!

Pros: Amazing food, So many flavors, Friendly service
