Great vegan options! - Edit

They have a couple of vegan burritos, avocado fries and dip, always delicious. The new location is very nice, we'll always support this restaurant when we're in the area.

Yes you should try this place!! - Edit

Overall: Good, and will definitely go again.

They have free parking in the back. Not many spaces, but it's a real plus in this busy area of Wildwood.

Hip, fun atmosphere. Kid friendly. They had music turned way up, which fit the party atmosphere of this town.

Avocado fries: Awesome! Very tasty, and I love that you can get them with vegan ranch dip. The portion size was a bit small, but that is the usual with this dish.

Chips and vegan cheese: Excellent! The homemade chips are scrumptious, and the cheese was, I dare say, perfect.

Quesadilla: Pretty good. A bit odd that the cheese was almost like mozzarella, which is strange for a quesadilla. But overall it was fresh and healthy tasting.

Vegan buffalo burrito: Good. The seitan had a bit of a strange texture, but not bad. Wish they made this with tofu instead. I only ate a small portion of it at the restaurant, because it was big. It ended up tasting even better leftover the next day.

The black beans were very very good; they were prepared with some sort of spice mix that was strong, and we loved it. The rice was also very good too.

When we walked in, it was a bit confusing as to how you should go about ordering. I think the idea is to turn to your right upon entering and walk right up to the iPad where they will take your order. But it was slow when we arrived and no one was there, so they took part of our order while we were seated at the table, and part of it when I walked up to the stand. But the staff was laid-back, friendly, and accommodating, so it all felt very comfortable. The owner is personable and friendly.

Do get a vegan brownie too!! Yum!

nonplussed - Edit

I was really excited to try this place. It's location is very close to the beach and Boardwalk, and about a block from our motel. We went in at around 2pm and it was pretty crowded. After we ordered at the counter, the customers behind us ordered, and then the hostess told subsequent customers that they weren't taking anymore orders. We then waited for over half an hour for our food. It became apparent that although there were four servers/hostesses standing around, there was only one cook who was very overwhelmed. And at some point, a family came in and perused the menu. The hostess saw them, but did not bother to tell them they weren't accepting orders until they were ready to place an order several minutes later. When our vegan buffalo burrito and quesadilla finally came out, the food was just ok. Ranch sauce overpowered a lot of the other flavors and we were given extra on the side. Also, the rice was undercooked, which kind of ruined the burrito. I guess they were in a big rush to get all the food out, but jeez.

The next day, we tried finding another place to get breakfast, but had a lot of trouble. This place seems to be the only place in town for vegan food. We reluctantly went back at 11am and got the breakfast burrito and the vegan al pastor tacos. The food was much better than he day before (no rice in the burrito), but not totally redeeming. If there had been other hearty vegan options, we would not have come back.

Pros: vegan options

Cons: slow/bad service, mediocre food

vegan friendly! - Edit

Nice little place, definitely geared towards people who like whole foods. Their brochure even says that they "respect the pepper"! Vegan burritos and tacos, and other non-v stuff too. Note: no bathroom at the moment, but they're moving to better digs in 2017.

Pineapple Burrito with Avocado Fries - Edit

If you are looking for something vegan after a day on the sand, this place is for you. Casual indoor or outdoor eating or take it to go.
There's a big sign that says "Home of the Avocado Fries" and they taste like fried avocado - think about it - something I'd certainly never do at home.
The Vegan Al Pastor Burrito was big with a bounty of white rice and black beans (enough for two, or a hungry one person). Seitan and pineapple made it deliciously fun, but need to dominate; they got squeezed into the corner by all the rice and beans.
I'd prefer lots of veggies and maybe even the avocado in the burrito, but they have a good start. The ranch sauce was top.
This may not be as good as what one can get vegan in other cities, but for the Wildwoods, it's great!

Pros: friendly staff, kid-friendly

Cons: no indoor bathroom, use the port-a-pot

Highly Recommend! - Edit

My family has a place in Wildwood so I come down every summer for a visit with my daughters.It's always difficult to find a vegan place to eat. I was excited when I found The Wild Burrito. I had the Avocado Fries (Awesome!) and the Vegan Chipotle BBQ Burrito(Fantastic!). My kids enjoyed it too and wanted to come back for breakfast. It's a very casual place with minimal seating. I will see them again in the summer.

Pros: Good selection, Good value, Great food

Cons: Limited Seating

Okay If You're Coming Off The Beach - Edit

Me and my hubby were looking for a nice, vegan restaurant to go to dinner on a Sunday night in Wildwood. This isn't it. You have to go up and order your food, which gets served to you in plastic baskets. Like I said, this is great if you're coming off the beach and need to grab a snack or lunch. I thought the prices were a little high, too. Will probably never go back there.

Pros: Vegan Selections, Quick Service

Cons: Limited Seating, No Service, Expensive

Delicious, fresh, and numerous vegan choices - Edit

I was really impressed! They have a vegan version of pretty much everything on the menu, and everything I had was really fresh and delicious. We went for dinner and liked it so much we went back the next day for breakfast. Plus they have four kinds of Cholula hot sauce and on weekend mornings La Colombe coffee. If you're in this area, you definitely need to stop here.

I would like to give this place five cows, but Happy Cow won't let me because they serve non-vegetarian food.
