OMD (Oh My Dog, I'm an atheist) delicious

Don't bother with impossible or jackfruit, get the seitan mushroom asada. We had tacos (rice, beans, salsa, salad) and a christmas burrito (chips and guac). We should have doubled one of those or gotten one other item, but it was almost enough to stuff the two of us. Everything was muy delicioso.

These folks were packed!!

Oh my word…. These poor people have more customers than they have space… it’s time fore a storefront, y’all!

The food was pricy, especially for a food truck… if I’m remembering right, it was $15 for a burger, no fries included. My kids loved their food, but truly, it’s cost prohibitive to go regularly.

It’s alright

I’ve been here a couple of times and certainly didn’t have my socks knocked off like the previous reviewers have. The food was expensive, the portions were tiny, and it wasn’t all that good. The only highlight for me is that the Vegan Vato seems like a really nice guy. The last time I was there they were clearly very swamped and he and his help were really trying to be as attentive as they could despite being super backed up.

Pros: Fully vegan, Very friendly staff

Cons: Expensive , Small portions

So Freaking Good

Not sure if you can cuss on this app, but this burrito was so good that I was spouting F words. I had the burrito with seitan asada and my goodness, it was delicious. Any non vegan wouldn’t know the difference.

Pros: All vegan truck, Delicious Food, Super cool staff

Bomb a$$ tacos!!

This food truck is an amazing find... Especially in New Mexico where vegan restaurants/food trucks are hard to come by. The tacos were the bomb diggity, I got 2 cauli tacos and 2 jackfruit tacos. I'm from out of town, so sad I won't be eating here often... But i will absolutely be going back any time I'm in town to try the rest of the menu!

No Longer a Food Truck

I've been to Vegan Vato multiple times since they opened just a little over a year ago and have been happy every single time. You get so much food for such a reasonable price. Like really. Get the burrito or loaded fries and tell me that's not at least two meals.

Unfortunately their new location (Lava Rock Brewing) is a bit inconvenient, and honestly the beer is just meh, but it is definitely worth the drive.

Pros: Huge portions, Good prices, DELICIOUS.

Cons: Out of the way
