I love that they have a drive thru, I don't even have to get out of my car. They will ask if you want real cheese or vegan cheese so you have options. They have all the typical fast food stuff, burgers, nuggets, burritos, fries, vegan "milk"shakes, which are delicious by the way...they have a few tables out front, outside... More

If you are on vacation and don't want to risk feeling sick from fast food, this is a very well thought out menu. Appealing to any fast food junkie/health conscious vegan who wants to treat his or her body better than that! When I eat there, I know I will feel good all day, with none of the low-energy backlash/can't... More

While this is considered fast food, it is fresh, delicious and unique. The portions are large and a good value for the money. The breakfast burrito is extremely tasty and filling. The African Tostada dish contained two of them. The non-dairy root beer float was excellent. The only seating is outdoor and most of the customers purchased their meals to... More

I went through the drive-thru and had my order up quickly. I had the burrito and some of the chili fries. I am impressed by the taste of the food and the large portions. This is def a place I will visit again when I get a craving for fast food. A fast food place for vegetarians....gotta love it!

Although it's veggie and labeled as "health food", you should still expect fast food when you go here. Of course, it's better for you having no cholesterol and probably low fat, but the fake meat is highly processed and super salty and the drinks are sugary. It's not health food. It was tasty though, a very good value for the... More

Yeah, it may say 'fast food' but careful preparation has to go into making your food. It is unbelievably amazing and delicious food, especially for being vegan! Some great things to try there would be any of their burgers (huge slabs of TVP or tofu with tons of veggies and yummy sauce), air fries or chili fries, and top it... More
