Serves meat, vegan options available. Quick service salad restaurant with Greater LA locations. Build-your-own meal, or order from the pre-set menu which includes a "happy vegan" salad, and a grilled and roasted vegetables which you could request no aioli (contains egg). Or ask to omit cheese on the other salads and sub for another topping. Sometimes will have a vegan soup.

A Few Great Vegan Options

Tender Greens is a healthy food chain with multiple locations. They don't have as many vegan-friendly options as their name might lead you to expect, but what they do have is delicious!

Our faves...

Roasted Tomato Soup - There's nothing quite as comforting as a bowl of tomato soup. Vegan friendly, warm and cozy. Awesome with the Happy Vegan Salad!

Happy Vegan - This is that awesome dish that you get when you're kind of in the mood for a salad but want something with a little more substance. Mixed greens with a lemon vinaigrette with four generous scoops of quinoa, tabbouleh, green hummus and farro are the perfect combination of fresh and filling.

Fresh food but few vegan options

The restaurant only has a couple vegan options but I enjoy the Happy Vegan salad. It’s not going to wow you but the ingredients are tasty and fresh. It’s a little disappointing that advertises itself as offering healthy, green options only has one vegan salad.

Pros: The food is fresh, Quick food delivery

Cons: Slightly overpriced, Few vegan options

Misleading & disappointing

Honestly a huge “WT*” after wasting space in my stomach at tender greens SD. Falafel ARENT vegan, it took 2 team members to get me a solid “has just. little dairy” answer. One mediocre salad choice- the ‘happy vegan’- resulting in one very unhappy vegan

Pros: Salad was average, Drinks were good , Grocery/etc. delivery options during COVID

Cons: One menu choice, Uninformed staff, 15 options within 2 miles all better

Clean food, great concept

It was better when I ate fish, their albacore was great. Now that I’m fully vegan there is only one option which never changes.

Pros: Clean,organic, local ingredients , Good atmosphere , Large portions

Cons: Only 1 vegan option

Good salad

I took myself out to lunch at tender greens and it was pretty good. I’m not sure what to eat besides the happy vegan salad, but it was good. I was a little thrown because there were only a little bit of greens, and the salad was mostly avocado quinoa and tabouleh. Still enjoyable and very filling. Also, the hibiscus tea was DELICIOUS.

Pros: Fast service, Cute atmosphere , Hibiscus tea

Cons: Only one vegan option

What else do I order besides the happy vegan. and indulge with a side of falafel (too spicy for me). food came quick once ordered though the line was long.

Pros: Happy Vegan item on the menu

Cons: Kale salad includes salami (really )
