Great atmosphere and delicious food!

I loved that this is an all-vegan restaurant. I didn't have to worry about picking out ingredients or in what combination could I order myself a vegan meal. The staff was friendly and personable. The inside atmosphere is well-designed. Oh, and the food is delicious! You won't regret trying it. I had the Big Cheeze, loaded Philly fries and the Skrimp Po'boy - all very tasty!

Pros: All Vegan!, Various options for all your comfort food favorite

Excellent food!

We were coming from Montgomery and trying to find an awesome vegan place to try. Underground Vegan was definitely worth the trip. The Skrimp Po Boy was excellent and tasted like real shrimp! And the burgers there were also excellent. We will definitely be back soon!

Fresh and delicious

Amazing vegan offerings, their classic sandwich is great place to start. I tried sides of their vegan shrimp and vegan wings and both were incredible. sweet staff, definitely feeling the effect of staff shortages, but if you have the patience it’s worth every second.

Pros: Huge menu, Delicious food and drink

Absolutely fantastic!

The food here is so good! One of the best vegan places I've ever had. The staff was super friendly and the service was great. The Philly cheese fries were phenomenal. I'm sad that they don't have a location near my home.

Pros: Delicious food, Wonderful staff, Prices fair

Cons: They don't have a location in Seattle

Vegan fast food

Birmingham has a vegan restaurant with delicious fries and sandwiches. I wish they offered a healthy, vegetable focused option, but that might not be popular here.

Excellent American food

The Rodeo burger, classic cheeseburger, and Philly cheese fries are fantastic. It may be one of the only fully vegan options in Birmingham, but it's also one of the best vegan restaurants I've been to for this sort of food.

Pros: Excellent burgers, Easy online order/pickup

So good went back for seconds

Pricy but really good! Only downside was that the fried green tomatoes...the tomato was hard. And most of the milkshakes on the menu weren't available

Pros: Tasty, Location

Our Favorite Restaurant in Birmingham, AL

We eat at Underground Vegan frequently. Began following them around the city in their food truck several years ago. This is the only 100% vegan restaurant in Birmingham. We have eaten in dozens of vegan and plant-based restaurants around the US. This place ranks near the top. Great service too!

Pros: Great choice of sandwiches. , Their Chickun is better than Chick-fil-A, Excellent fries. Both sweet potato fries.

Best Philly Cheesesteak in the game

So good I got 3 meals and still went back for more!

Pros: Extremely nice staff, Tons of delicious options, Absolutely incredible Philly cheese sauce

Cons: On the expensive side (I spent ~$100 on 5 entrées), Food may take a while with short staffing, Milkshakes aren't the best

Not good, but maybe worth trying one more time?

I was disappointed in the food we received here. I appreciate that it was all vegan, but the food was too expensive for what we had. We ordered the burger, fries, and chocolate shake. The burger was extremely greasy and the chocolate shake was very chalky. The only decent thing were the fries, but the portion was small considering the price.

I do want to note that I only ate here once as I was passing through town. So even though I think my review is valid, I do not want it to deter others from TRYING this place. One bad experience should not define the whole thing. I simply want others to be aware of the situation and what they may also encounter.

Pros: Nice environment

Cons: Pricey (considering quality of food), Greasy food, Chalky milkshake

My wife and I had a great meal here. The “chicken” was awesome. Their shrimp is the only vegan “fish” I’ve ever liked and it was really good. Had some good sides and washed em down with a couple shakes. The staff was polite and friendly. Will totally go back.

All vegan, comfort food

We had a cheeseburger, a chop Philly sandwich and fries. Burger was tastier in my opinion. Prices are pretty good too. They had a breading on them. But the Philly was a little greasy.

Pros: All vegan , Pleasant staff, Nearby free parking

Cons: All meals used fake meats, Very salty and greasy

We went to Underground Vegan for the first time a few nights ago. It was EXCELLENT!! The staff was extremely welcoming and friendly. The Skrimp Quesadilla, Chopped Philly Sammy, Caliente, Fries, and Chocolate Milkshake were all GREAT!! The portions are very good. Underground Vegan is a place we will definitely return to.

Underground is above Hush

This is the vegan food I'm looking for when I go out to eat. It's delicious fried awesomeness that I don't cook at home. Everything we had was awesome, wings, club, bbq, and kids nuggets.

Just the fact they have a kids menu makes them better than most vegan places.

And my Omni parents liked it also.

Thanks for being you and having winning food.

Pros: All Vegan

Cons: I don't live close.

My Favorite Restaurant!

This is my favorite restaurant so far! The food is absolutely amazing and the fact that it's all cruelty-free is even better! I highly recommend the "Bad Birdy"...it's an out-of-this-world chick'n sandwich with a crispy hashbrown patty, slightly spicy chipotle sauce, a slice of cheese, plant-based "bacon", and vegan "egg". It's loaded with flavor! The fries are awesome too, being really crispy on the outside while super soft on the inside, with a whole bunch of flavor!

Pros: Super Tasty , 100% vegan

Needed in Birmingham

Awesomeness about time for the area

Pros: All vegan menu 😋 love this

Cons: They don't accept cash.


13 Nov 2021

Actually, them not accepting cash can be considered a pro since it means that they're not handling cash before touching your food, so it's more sanitary. Especially when you consider the places that some people hide their cash😄

Best vegan food in Alabama

This was one of the best vegan restaurants I’ve been to. The burger and quesadilla were both delicious. The shrimp taste and texture couldn’t have been better. Can’t recommend this place enough.

I agree, Underground Vegan is the BEST restaurant in Alabama. I really recommend one of their chick'n sandwiches (I personally love the "bad birdy").
