Reviews 4.5/5

Veronica Palma 5/5

Beautiful little vegan place. I absolutely loved my food. My family enjoyed as well. The kids had the kids quesadilla that comes with beans and rice. The beans are really good, they seem freshly made to me. The gorditas were nice and filling. Salsas are tasty, the pambazo was great. The customer service is great as well. Definitely returning. 1st time customer from 1 hour away

Anthony Lopez 5/5

We had a great vegan meal here, the taco plate and California burrito were excellent, and the beans and rice that came with the plate came out wonderful. Their only menu is on a giant board outside the front door, so be sure to take a look before entering.

Diana Dilee DiNucci-Maher 5/5

Yummy vegan Mexican food with clear symbols for allergies to soy, gluten, peanut, almond. All of us really enjoyed our meal here. Highly recommended!

Deniz Turkmen 5/5

They have a variety of dishes and protein choices as far as plant-based ingredients go, which is a nice welcome. We got Queretaro style enchiladas, which are like soft tacos cooked in some delicious grease. Gordita plate had nice soft corn patties stuffed with a protein of your choice. I don’t know if it was the adobada but it was little bland, unless the green salsa is added. Jalepeno on the plate is not too hot, and definitely edible. If I am in the area I would definitely try something else. The service is good, the decor is nice, rice and beans are OK.

My Le 5/5

This place was poppin’ on Sunday at noon! Either a lot of people are vegan or it’s that good!

It’s hard to see the store front but you’ll see the big tent and a sign for Vegan Nectar next door. Must be the same owner. Plenty of parking.

This place serves salad, burritos, tacos, and rice plates. All vegan Mexican food. Oh and vegan birria which means you can’t miss out on anything.

You order and pay first inside before you go seat yourself. You’re given a buzzer. You can sit indoor or outdoor patio.

I got the Phattie’s burrito and my friend got California burrito. It was cut in half so we swapped the half to try both. Both tastes similar except that Phattie’s have sweet potato fries. Very flavorful and texture like meat. No wonder why this place was packed!
