I met some friends at The Corner Mexican Restaurant and couldn’t believe all the vegan options available (a 2-sided vegan menu is available)! The chips, guacamole, and salsa were perfect and the entrees were interesting and really good! I tried the red enchiladas w/ vegan cheez, refried black beans, and vegan rice, which were fantastic. One friend let me try her Gordita with soy chorizo - SO good! If you’re in the KC area, this place is worth the trek - the business is located on the Main Street in Grandview, just off 71 Hwy and has great hours. Enjoy!

(I’ve since tried the tofu stick taco, mushroom street tacos, and vegan pozole and they were also delicious! But I still get the red enchiladas w/ vegan cheez every time)

nice surprise, amazing tacos

plenty of unique vegan dishes to choose from, different from most Mexican restaurants, with unique flavors.
great and friendly service. the waitress told me that they'll update and add more items to the vegan menu soon. will definitely be back here.
visited again, and food got more delicious. tacos are to die for, and inexpensive

Below the radar but arguably THE best vegan option in Kansas City metro area

It's not fancy. It's not on a corner. They don't serve alcohol. If you ask for the vegan menu you will be amazed at all of the options they have beyond the usual american mexican offerings that can be made vegan. Menu is inexpensive and the decor clearly didn't cost a fortune. It's a nice vibe, people are friendly and helpful.

Pros: Many, many vegan options, Inexpensive, Friendly staff and clientele

Cons: It's a little rustic

Outstanding vegan Mexican food

The Corner Mexican Food has a separate vegan menu that has an impressive selection. The torta was out of this world good. They have several vegan meat options, vegan cheese, and sour cream. This was some of the best Mexican food I’ve had since going vegan.

Ask for the separate vegan menu. It's very extensive and changes frequently. My favorite is the pambazo.

Best Vegan Mexican Food in KC Metro

I would say that this Mexican restaurant has the most vegan options of any place in the KC Metro area. They have a special vegan menu that you have to ask for but it has tons of options. They have several vegan meat options, vegan cheese, vegan sour cream. It also has an authentic Mexican vibe

Awesome staff and delicious food

Wow! I was so overwhelmed at the number of vegan options at a non-vegan restaurant. I had a delicious burrito, ice cream and churros with my non-vegan boyfriend. We both thoroughly enjoyed the vegan menu. Can’t wait to go back!

Pros: Loves of vegan options, Delicious food, Great atmosphere

Deserves 5 Stars

I know Happy Cow reserves 5 star ratings for fully vegan restaurants (and I get it) but this place is incredible.

They have a separate all-vegan menu and they know what they are doing. The service was fantastic and the food was beyond amazing. I had a gordita and it was fresh and had an authentic, homemade taste and since it was taco Tuesday I got a soy asada taco as well. Some of the best faux meat I have ever had in my life.

I can't possibly recommend this place enough.

Oh, and VEGAN DESSERT! They had vegan churros served with vegan whipped cream! Holy cow-less!!

Pros: Full vegan menu, Incredible food, Wonderful service

My Fave Mexican Restaurant

I love this place so much. I’m so glad they got a bigger location. My faves are the “pork” rind, and pumpkin flower proteins, but really they are all delicious. The corner burritos are massive and full of flavor, tacos are simple and tasty. There’s SO many options you really can’t go wrong.

Pros: Vegan menu very pro vegan, A variety of House made protein, Friendly and very affordable

Cons: It’s a little bit of a drive from downtown KCMO

So yummy!!

So amazing to have a full vegan menu. The menu is a front and back page that is full of options. The menu is not just simple Americanized Mexican food but fairly authentic. It is just so good. I can’t wait to go back.

Pros: Large vegan menu , Authentic Mexican that is vegan, Lots of choices

Cons: To much “fake meat” and not enough vegetables , Not close to my house 😆

Great Veg Options!

I was so excited to go here, I live close by and this is definitely the closest restaurant to me with an actual Vegan menu. They were so nice too, we were seated and the server asked if I needed the vegan menu. So many options! I got the Sope and Then a scoop of ice cream. (You have to try, it’s made in house!) Reasonable prices and great food. Plus my non-veg boyfriend got to eat normal food. Win, win!

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Friendly staff, Affordable pricing

Cons: New, so working out some kinks
