Veggie Grill is heating up the West Coast as it expands out of So-Cal and into 24 locations in Cali, Oregon, and Washington. The newest location is right here in Mountain View, and I have to say that I’m looking forward to trying it. If you are too, add a comment below with your email address, or send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I’ll send you a gift certificate for one free entree*!
The concept is simple: craveable food that’s all plant-based and good for ya to boot. Yep, even though “chickin” is on their menu, there’s not an ounce of meat, dairy, eggs, or cholesterol in the whole lot. And with a pretty big selection of burgers, sandwiches, salads, bowls, and some pretty tempting sides (hello quinoa mac and cheese), it looks like they’re doing a good job of making fast-casual food not totally suck.
Also, to be perfectly honest, I just love a menu where I can eat every single thing on it. I try very hard never to complain about being a pescatarian (because I do it by choice, obviously), but sometimes it’s so nice to take my guard down and choose my lunch pin-the-tail-on-the-donkey style. Three cheers for healthier, affordable, meat-free, tasty options!
As mentioned, I have not actually been to Veggie Grill yet to try some of these tasty-sounding meals, but was compelled to write about them anyway because I like the concept and the menu. If you’ve been to Veggie Grill, tell me what you think (good or bad)! I’m curious. :)
