Reviews 4.5/5

christina perepelitsa 5/5

wanted to find a vegan burger that wasn’t the impossible patty and i was really impressed with this spot. The bun was tasty and from a local bakery and the patty itself was flavorful in combination with the sauce. The interior isn’t special but there is outside patio seating located behind the building with shade and plants. The first worker was not nice and not helpful but when i came back to order another drink the second employee was kind and able to answer my questions about the food.

It’s good to be back in California where I’m originally from. This place encapsulates what I remember about San Diego and Southern California vegan. It is a cool drive up window experience or go in and order and they’ll bring it to you in the indoor outdoor seating area. Open without a roof and plenty of space. The food was really good and qualifies for vegan fast food. I had the California Burrito and it was really tasty the wings were just as good as I remembered. If you’re in the area and you want to have a California vegan experience this is definitely a place to check out.

Yummy vegan fast food, and they have soft serve ice cream! We tried two of their “chicken” burger combos and they were great. Fair price and left very full. Also got their swirl soft serve which was very big and delicious! Will for sure go back next visit to the city.

I’m not generally into junk food, but Evolution’s black bean patty with mushrooms and Swiss on a gluten-free bun hit the spot! Fast, no-nonsense service. I ate on the quiet, shaded, dog-friendly back patio. I’ve only got three weeks total in San Diego, so am trying to try everything on my list before going back for seconds, but I have been back already once. 1,000% more delicious than it looks in the photo, which absolutely doesn’t do it justice. Parking lot and drive-thru option.

Nizy Espitia 5/5

Boyfriend found this spot for me , so we decided to try it and I’m so glad we did . I got the mushroom Swiss burger, and he got buffalo chicken they were both really good but my favorite was the mushroom Swiss I 100% recommend this one ,also their bomb ranch with the fries was amazing and their drinks ! I like it too much that I had this burger for three days straight ! I would definitely be back when I go visit San Diego again !.
