The popularity of the vegan lifestyle is on the rise and we’re not surprised because there are numerous benefits that can be enjoyed from it. These benefits include a healthier mind and body since the lifestyle is characterized by a healthy diet filled with fruits, vegetables and whole grains, among other non-meat items. The financial costs of a vegan lifestyle are also likely to be lower because of the more affordable prices of fruits and vegetables, as well as the reduced risk of diseases.
The Veggie Grill chain of fast-casual vegan restaurants is among the leaders of the vegan industry for good reasons. The restaurants offer only the best in vegan fare, which are made from scratch in their kitchens.

The first Veggie Grill opened in 2007 in Irvine, California. Due to the increasing popularity of the vegan lifestyle in general and vegan foods in particular, the company grew its number of locations such that there are early 30 restaurants in California, Washington, and Oregon. The chain’s headquarters are in Santa Monica, California.
What They’re Famous For
The vegan chain of restaurants has established a reputation for offering tasty plant-based dishes from appetizers to entrées. These dishes are made without meats of any kind; dairy products like milk, cheese, and butter; eggs and even egg substitutes; trans-fat sources; animal fats including cholesterol sources.
The dishes are rich with herbs, spices and vegetables so these are both delicious and nutritious. These are also presented in appetizing ways – colorful and beautiful – so that diners will be tempted to clean their plates. These dishes are also served in generous portions so diners leave the Veggie Grill restaurants with smiles on their faces and a full stomach.
Why Eat Here
Every Veggie Grill restaurant is a meat-free zone and the chain’s management definitely means it! Every dish on the menu are free of meats of any form – chicken, beef, pork, veal and lamb – as well as animal products like dairy, eggs, and animal fat. The result: You don’t consume hormones, antibiotics and other potentially harmful chemicals used in raising and processing animal-based foods.
But don’t worry about missing out on the health benefits of protein and fats, which are macronutrients needed by the body for proper functioning. Veggie Grill chefs include protein-rich foods in the dishes, such as nuts, beans and legumes as well as the silky smooth tofu, which are sautéed and grilled to enhance their flavors. We suggest the Chickin’ Veggie dish, a protein-rich dish made with non-GMO soybeans, wheat and peas with special marinade and seasoning – truly, the perfect balance between delicious and nutritious.
Did we mention that the tofu and tempeh in Veggie Grill dishes are also made from non-GMO soybeans? The commitment to non-GMO products is strong even in the smallest ingredients, not to mention that the tofu is naturally gluten-friendly.
The dishes also have healthy fats from plant-based sources, such as canola oil, seed oil, and rice bran oil, which are filled with healthy monounsaturated fats. There are no dishes here that have trans-fats, cholesterol and saturated animal fats, which have been proven by medical researchers as bad for your health.
The grains used in the dishes are also of the highest quality, and high in protein and low in gluten. These include buckwheat, millet, brown rice, and organic quinoa, which are considered healthier alternatives to other types of grains.
Indeed, when you’re on a weight loss diet, or you want to adopt a healthy diet as part of your lifestyle plan, or you are just looking for great-tasting vegan dishes, the Veggie Grill is the best place to be! Your worries about vegan dishes being more expensive than fast-food aren’t justified considering that their dishes are reasonably-priced. You can also avail of the student discount for even more affordable prices; just show your student identification for such purpose.
The chefs also have a great way of presenting vegan food, such as using shredded carrots in place of shredded cheese. The carrot cake, by the way, is a must-have dessert because it’s so moist while its smooth vegan cream has a subtly sweet flavor to it.
The Veggie Grill isn’t just about salads, contrary to first impressions of its name. Diners also have numerous choices in burgers, sandwiches, and sides like sweet potato fries, as well as mac n’ cheese, Buffalo wings, and masala bowl – all vegan, of course. The bar offers beer and wine only although the selection is sufficient for most diners.
As for the service, the crew members are typically friendly, accommodating and efficient although peak hour service can be hectic. The peak hours are during lunch and dinner when young and old descend on the restaurants for their meals and snacks, which can mean seating may take several minutes when you come through the doors. Many restaurants also offer outdoor seating so waiting can be more enjoyable and less of a hassle.
