Excellent vegan grilled sandwich selec

They had a large choice of clearly labeled vegan grilled sandwiches. I had The Allen Ginsberg , my husband had The Andre 3000 - they were delicious. The staff were really friendly and knowledgeable on vegan food. My only negative would be the lack of vegan labeled drinks - I only found one, but there might be more. Will definitely come back on our next visit to Grand Rapids.

Pros: Big selection of clearly labeled vegan food, Friendly helpful staff

Cons: Not many vegan labeled drinks

So unique!

First off, so many options that are not your run of the mill "veggie sandwich". They have marinated tofu, blackened tofu, seitan bacon, white bean patties, and black bean patties for the "meat" of the sandwich.

I got the #87 André 3000 and I'd definitely get it again, it I also want to try another one of their many sandwiches

Pros: Options, Unique, Delicious

Many Options

They have so many sandwiches to choose from but I didn't care for mine. I got a tofu wrap. I would give it another chance though if I was in the area.

Worth the Drive

Worth the drive!! My husband and I first discovered this place while we were staying in the Holland area with family. We wanted a really good vegan meal and saw their menu online. Decided to drive about 40 minutes to take a chance- worth every mile!! Best vegan sandwiches we’ve ever had. There are so many options! We go back every time we’re in that neck of the woods now.

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Unique and delicious- so satisfying

If you’re near downtown Grand Rapids, you must try their sandwiches! They have a huge menu for vegan, vegetarian, and other sandwiches. They are all awesome, but my favorite is the Count Von Count.

Pros: LOTS of vegan options , Best vegan sandwiches I’ve ever had, Sandwiches are huge, very filling

Cons: Parking downtown can be difficult

5 stars

Seventeen vegan sandwiches on the menu, I want to try them all.

Happy Cow needs to allow five star ratings for omni places. You can differentiate using the categories/colors already so there is no reason for the handicap.

Pros: Lots of vegan options

deserves ten stars honestly

i wish that you could give 100% five stars to places that only have vegan options but aren't themselves a vegan restaurant. this place is the bomb! so so good. an INSANE amount of vegan options, i've been here so many times and am still trying to work my way through the menu! hands down favorite sandwiches i've ever had, ever. honestly, best fillings between two pieces of bread i've ever had. could not recommend more.
love a day at vertigo music, and then picking up some sandos and drinks at the beards

Woody Harrelson

My go-to place in GR. The Woody Harrelson is my favorite wrap. I love the vegan bacon they make! I think they use tofu? The sauce is so good. The Jack Black uses jackfruit as pulled pork.

Pros: Incredible amount of vegan options. , So much flavor!

Lots of options

The vegan menu is huge. Tried the Woody Harrelson and it was really tasty. Vegan bacon was hard to chew but tasty. Only problem we had it was crazy busy and they missed our order of two sandwiches. They served over 12 that came after us. Yeah we sat there a long time before getting food.
Food options were good

Pros: Loads of vegan options

Cons: Higher priced sandwiches

Plethora of vegan options

I’ve visited the beards a few times and never have been disappointed with what I chose. Last time I visited I had the Jack Black, it was tasty and filling. I had half portion, a full portion includes more stuffed on the same bread. Menu names are creative, restaurant is clean and staff is friendly.

Pros: So many options

Cons: Hard to choose which delicious option
