Delicious options for most every diet consideration. Vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options. My favorite: the nachos and the pineapple shake. Not at the same time :-) Local wild chickens provide entertainment; one day a particular black and white would run to the pick-up window every...More

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.

Just look through the other testimonials - this place is legendary. The food is amazing. I'm not vegetarian, but any time someone wants to eat hear I am all for it. The atmosphere is definitely laid back and comfy. No need to get dressed up,...More
