It’s no secret that I’m beyond mega hardcore obsessed with Veggie Grill. The closest one to where I live is in San Jose (not super close), and hubbers and I make the hour-drive almost every other weekend for their tasty noms—their food is THAT good!
What I love most about VG:
- EVERYTHING is 100% vegan.
- Their menus are seasonal, for the most part (including loads of stay-put best sellers).
- Their prices are hella affordable. You can peep their full menu here.
- Their food is like crack… I can’t even put my finger on the crack factor (ha, that sounds inappropriate). Their food is exceptional and could seriously fool any die-hard “carnivores” who “have to have their meat.” Most of their items are definitely comfort food-y, but they have nutrient-rich salads and bowls as well.
- Their food comes out FAST! This is important because we always go to Veggie Grill with insatiable appetites.
- Their strawberry lemonade is To. Die. For. Seconds and thirds, please!
- They have an incredible kid’s menu with lots of fun choices—this is hands-down Dylan’s fave restaurant (he usually gets the faux chicken trips with Sweetheart Fries, ranch dressing, chocolate pudding, and strawberry lemonade).
- You get a free meal on your birthday (HOLLA!) when you sign up for their mailing list (and it’s not just valid on your actual b-day which is sweet).
- Two words: Sweetheart Fries. I fantasize about these daily. 😉 The seasoning they use on them is REDONK, and you HAVE to dip them in their chipotle ranch… heaven!!
Now, for some of my favorite menu items:
- Mondo Nachos 6.95 – “Chicasa” taco blend of veggie proteins, caramelized onions, mashed avocado, VG-Cheese, jalapeños, soy cream + corn chips
- Santa Fe Crispy Chickin’ 9.75 – Fried Chickin’, lettuce, tomato, red onion, avocado, spicy mayo
- All Hail Kale 9.25 – Marinated kale, quinoa, red cabbage slaw, corn salsa, agave-roasted walnuts, ginger-papaya vinaigrette
- “Crab” Cake 9.45 – Crispy “Crab” cake, spiced tartar sauce, pickles, tomato, lettuce, red onion
- Tres “Fish” Tacos 9.95 – Crispy “fish”, green cabbage, original Baja sauce, cilantro, fresh limes, with mashed avocado + tomato salad
Damn, I just made myself mad hungry writin’ this post. Will have to hit up VG STAT!
