While the United States is a melting pot of cultures and cuisines, there are still many quintessentially European foods that aren’t readily available. This is where the VERTS Mediterranean Grill comes in! While it’s a relatively young restaurant chain, it has made a positive impact on the restaurant industry due to its innovative approaches.
In fact, the chain is a multi-awarded organization with recognitions like Top 25 Fastest-Growing Fast Casuals (2016, Restaurant Business Online) and 10 hot restaurant brands to watch (2017, CNBC). Dominik Stein, a co-founder, was also recognized on the 2017’s Forbes 30 Under 30 for the Food & Drink category. The chain also created the smallest food truck in 2011 – it was a smart car – a testament to its willingness to shake things up.

In 2011, Michael Heyne and Dominik Stein founded Verts after their graduation from the University of Texas’ business school in Austin, Texas. Their goal was to offer people in the United States the best European food that restaurants weren’t offering then. Such was their success that many more branches opened in the subsequent years including in several cities across Texas, as well as in Philadelphia, Massachusetts, and Washington D.C.
According to the company, there are more than 20 locations included in the fast casual restaurant chain. The headquarters are in Austin, Texas.

You will also get your first bowl for free – and that’s as good a reason as any to eat at the nearest Verts restaurant in your area. Your stay will likely be a happy experience, too, thanks to the awesome community the chain has nurtured since its founding.
Fresh fruits and vegetables as well as premium meats, spices and herbs, among other ingredients, are what every Verts restaurant is all about! Many people say that the Verts brand is an upscale Cabo and Chipotle with better dishes and desserts offered at still-reasonable prices – and we agree. Even diners who have limited knowledge about Mediterranean cuisine agree that the dishes are awesome in their appearance, flavors and textures.
The quinoa and rice bowls are must-haves on every visit. The quinoa and rice are fluffy, the perfect complement to the savory flavors of the vegetables, meats and sauces. Every bowl is also a meal on its own although many diners also order the appetizers and entrées so that their palates and tummies can be satisfied to the fullest.
The bar also offers a wide selection of beers and wines, which can obviously be paired with the dishes on the menu. The Verts restaurants are kid- and family-friendly, too, thanks to the kid-suitable meals and drinks. The alcoholic drinks are geared toward the adults who prefer to chill out in the restaurant while enjoying a hearty meal.
The service from the crew members is always fast, friendly and efficient even during peak hours. Many diners even reported that crew members went out of their way to accommodate their special requests.
While not all Verts restaurants offer outdoor seating, the ones with al fresco seating have a more relaxed vibe. Diners can enjoy both the laidback ambiance and the delicious food while seeing other people and being seen by them.
There are no Wi-Fi and television facilities in the restaurants. But this is a good thing considering that these are only distractions from the focus of your visit – to enjoy the delicious dishes and desserts! Besides, it’s always better to connect with your fellow diners through good conversations, even laughter, instead of being hunched over your smartphones.
The noise level in the restaurants is average even on peak hours. The casual dress code means that the crowd is a mix of students, young professionals, and aspiring entrepreneurs as well as families with and without kids. The restaurants are also clean, especially in the restrooms with their bright lighting and interiors.
The chain also accepts catering services in schools, offices and homes, among other venues. For diners in the restaurants, there’s no need to make reservations but catering clients have to work with the team in advance of the scheduled day.
The Verts restaurants are great places to bring your family and friends for lunch and dinner. You can pay in cash and credit cards while Apple Pay and Android Pay are limited in most restaurants.
