We love seeing chain restaurants moving towards a more vegan-friendly menu. Or at least offering something beyond simply salads. And boring ones at that.
While the items aren’t specified as vegan, staff here actually have a trusty guide they used (and which they gave to us) which clearly outlines what is vegan, gluten-free and so on.
That being said, the true vegan options aren’t a plenty, but what they can tweak to vegan is pretty nice.
Appetizers that are vegan includes the white corn guacamole with chips (albeit a super small and somewhat disappointing serving of the guac). You can also snack on the Tuscan hummus and lettuce wraps. Plus, slight modifications like nixing the cheese make quite a few other starters vegan.
There are soup and salads of the vegan variety (again, it’s all about the mods in some cases), but our favorite is — of course — the pizza. The California Veggie, if we’re getting specific. Don’t eat the pizza. The chain recently changed its crust ingredients and now it is not vegan.
