Great Location

Great, all-be-it delicate, vegan burger. Delicious pickle bar. Plenty of parking. What more could you ask for? This location has a real contemporary-hipster feel with a splash of nostalgia and a pinch of pop culture. I’d expect nothing less from TRB.

I got the build your own burger - veggie patty, wheat bun, avocado, Pickles, ketchup, mustard. It was a fun place & good food! My meat-eater companions liked it too!

I'm not crazy about the veggie burger, but then again I'm not a big fan of black bean patties.

I like that it's right next to the Alamo Drafthouse. You're given funny celebrity names for your order. It has that down to earth Texas burger place atmosphere.

For my meat-eating brother, this has become his favorite spot in Lubbock. Could be a good option if you're going out with a group.

Pros: next to Alamo Drafthouse, good for groups, good atmosphere

Cons: limited veg options

Great Vegan Burger

The restaurant is very casual and lots of fun. At the register, they assign you a celebrity name, instead of a number, and find fun ways to call your name when your food is ready to be picked up. They have one vegan burger and it is called the Vegabond. It's tasty and very satisfying! The veggie burger and fries is a satisfying meal! However, there aren't any other options available to vegans. The menu is extensive for meat eaters. Even though the options are limited, I really appreciate how they help make a positive impact on the environment with their packaging, cups, dining ware, etc.

Pros: eco dining options, vegan burger

Cons: limited options

not that veg-friendly

These restaurants are not that veg-friendly. McDonalds has french-fries and salads. HappyCow is listing more and more restaurants that don't really cater to the vegetarian - we deserve more than just to be tolerated.

Pros: none

Cons: loud, limited menu, faux-hip

Hey, just wanted to let you know that McDonald's french fries actually have beef ingredients in them :(

I would go back if I ate meat. I really was looking forward to having a good vegan burger. I was disappointed in the sandwich that I felt was very over price. I left disappointed. It's hard to find a great place in Lubbock for those who want to eat healthy.

Pros: The restaurant was clean and employees were friend

Cons: The Vegabond vegan. urgent really look great but I

Delicious Vegan Burger

Outstanding vegan housemade patty made with black beans, chickpeas, and quinoa. Has 1 specialty burger on menu that's vegan, the Vegabond, that is topped with avocado and siracha. Otherwise you can build your own with various toppings. The pickle bar alone was worth the stop!

The only vegan burger in Lubbock?

I'm just visiting, so I lack the knowledge that local veg*ns may have, but I couldn't find anything on HC, so after an exhaustive internet search, I finally found a vegan burger patty at Twisted Root. It's right by the new Alamo Drafthouse, which is a great location, and it has outdoor seating, and a fabulous pickle bar with several flavors.

The patty is made with black beans, quinoa, and chickpeas, and after my first bite I was a little alarmed that there might be cheese in it. Luckily a manager was walking by and asked how it was. I checked with him, and he assured me there is NO cheese, or dairy, and that the flavor comes from the hummus(the chickpeas weren't whole). The flavor was great, and they had lots of toppings to choose from, so I added pickled red onion, guacamole, lettuce, tomato, and dill pickles. I could have eaten another. It's definitely the best option I've found here so far. They also have local beer, a house root beer, and they use compostable materials. One thing that was fun was they assign you a name to know when your burger is up, and they're all fun things like "Kim Possible," or "My Fairy Godmother."

One thing that I did find unpleasant was a sticker stuck to the counter near the checkout that said, "Vegans are just wrong." I almost walked right out, but instead, I politely told the manager that it was offensive, especially since they sell a vegan burger. He seemed to listen without being defensive, so that's a start. I may not have listed this place in a city with more options, but here in Lubbock it seems like every little bit helps.

Pros: Pickle Bar!, Great tasting burger , Eco-friendly cups/trays/etc.

Cons: Mostly meat based, Offensive sticker at counter
