This may be my favorite place in the world. I love Veggie Grill with such a passion. Here's why.
First of all, they're a completely 100% vegan, plant-based restaurant franchise. They have tons of locations all up and down the west coast of the US. Which is awesome. You're never far from great-tasting vegan food.
Second, they deliberately focus on nutritious, healthy foods. They're completely plant-based, which means there are no animal fats or cholesterol (or hormones or antibiotics). They do not use any trans fats, only monosaturated fats like those from rice bran, canola and seed oils. They use high-protein super grains like organic quinoa, millet, buckwheat and brown rice. The chicken protein, by Gardein, is made from non-CMP soybeans and even the tempeh and tofu is made from organic non-GMO soybeans.
Heads up, I was provided my meal in exchange for my review.
And the piece de resistance - the food - is mind-blowingly amazing. I really wish this website had smell-o-vision or lick-o-vision so I could show you just how delicious it is. Everything they make is unbelievably tasty. There's not a bad dish in the house. Trust me, I've had them all. A lot. A lot, a lot.
They have some pretty amazing vegan comfort food classics, like cheeseburgers, BLTs, chicken sandwiches, soups, mac and cheese, buffalo wings, nachos, wraps, bowls, salads, desserts, sweet potato fries and more. But they also do some rare finds like crab cake sandwiches, fish tacos, and a caeser salad! They make delicious dipping sauces like creamy and chipotle ranches and a special fry dipping sauce that are simply to die for.
They also have seasonal menus that showcase in-season goodies such as chargrilled sweet corn on the summer menu. Nom.
Check out some of my favorites. Try not to droll all over your keyboard. I can't be held responsible.

Eating at Veggie Grill, you have the abundance, and convenience of anything and everything you could possibly want, all vegan! Unlike eating at other restaurants, here you never have to give up the cheeses, the sauces or the deliciousness! Yay to that!
I have so much respect for this business, spreading the vegan love and showing everybody how great plant-based food can be.
They have a sleek, user-friendly loyalty app where you can find locations, order online, collect rewards and pay with at the register.
And now, they are even offering delivery service. Because sometimes the best get even better.
