Good vegetarian food. I would like them to use more Portobello mushrooms. The burritos are great, just the patties for hamburgers could be a little tastier.

Good nutty taco and delicious thick carob shake. Always entertaining chickens around. Be prepared for a wait.

Even if you aren’t a Vegan, which I am not, the food here is INCREDIBLE! My fave is the avocado sandwich (can’t remember name), but get a lot of napkins!!

Coming here is nostalgic for me. Our rowing crew used to come here after practice in the 90’s when chips came with the meal and we fed them to the roosters. But the food is bland including the salsa which they now charge extra for....More

Sunflower Drive In is my favorite place to go for a yummy nut burger. The patty is moist, chewy & spiced just right. It sits on a whole wheat bun filled with lettuce, alphalfa sprouts, shredded carrots, diced onions, tomato & yummy dill pickles. It...More

"End of winter" I suspect translates to 1st day of spring. Never quite understood why the chili is seasonal. I generally order a side of refried beans instead.

For me, avoiding the heavier and fried items is helpful. Also skipping the sauce on the millet burger etc adds health value. Veggie chili is always a good choice while skipping the chips or corn bread. Unless you have... More
