Food Review – Veggie Grill – San Jose, CA

Posted on

Veggie Grill has finally made its way to San Jose, CA!

Veggie Grill originated from Southern California but has branched out to Oregon & Washington. For the first time ever, it came to Northern CA! I was sOooOoo excited! Veggie Grill is a restaurant that serves delicious food with NO ANIMAL PRODUCTS! YAY! Their menu consists mainly of salads, sandwiches, and burgers. They have many appetizers or sides such as nachos, mac n cheez, buffalo wings, fries. My family and I ventured over there Friday evening to try some of their food and it was so delicious! Here is what we got…

The All-American Stack – This burger consisted of veggie-steak, lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, crispy onion rings, and thousand island dressing. This burger was delicious! I’m guessing the veggie-steak is tempeh. It was seasoned very well and tasted great hot; however, once it got cold, it had a funky taste…especially when eaten alone. However, still delicious! Look at the the fresh veggies =)

My mom got the Crispy Chick’n Plate. This came with cauli-mashed potatoes topped with mushroom gravy, fried chick’n, and rosemary steamed kale. My mom raved on and on about this plate. I tried some of the potatoes with the chicken. Absolutely fantastic! The chicken was crispy and the texture was right on. It was more like a chicken patty rather than a piece of fried chicken. Trust me, meat-eaters wouldn’t know the different; they’d think it’s a chicken nugget. Lol!

Boyfriend got the Buffalo Bomber. This was fried chicken strips tossed in buffalo sauce, tomato, red onion, lettuce, and ranch dressing. This sandwich was really good. The buffalo dressing tasted awesome!

My dad got the Santa Fe Crispy Chick’n burger. This came with fried chicken, lettuce, tomato, red onion, avocado, and spicy vegan mayo. Now, my dad is a meat eater and even he said this tasted delicious. I’ve had this sandwich before and it’s nom nom nom. =)

Seriously,
If you guys are near a Veggie Grill, you must try it! Food is fresh and delicious! I’d say the chicken comes closest to the real thing. The steak was ehh, okay. It’s delicious when paired with others things but when it’s alone, it tastes a little weird. Haha Oh! and the sweet potato fries are awesome. They come with this chipotle ranch that is so creamy! The price is just right…for a meal it’s about 8-9 dollars. All the burgers/sandwiches come with a side of cole slaw or chili but to substitute to sweet potato fries, they add an extra $2.25, which is a little steep since they only give a handful of fries. It should be +$1! Haha but still worth it…hope you guys like this food review.

Namaste,
Jenn

PS. Check out this cup I got for my mom for her birthday from “Teddy”. Isn’t it just hilarious?!! I love my dog! ❤

    • Yes! We do have a lot of places to eat…I wish more vegan friendly places. Palo Alto, Saratoga, and especially San Francisco have a lot of healthy eats! Where are you from?

      • I live in Austin, Texas…There aren’t that many vegan restaurants in this land where BBQ (or anything involving meat), Tex-Mex reigns supreme. However, Austin is unlike any places in the state. There are plenty of vegan friendly restaurants!! Have you ever visited before? I think you would love it 😉 just saying hehe

      • No I actually have never but I do want to travel the 50 states! Haha, when I do, I’ll be sure to ask you where the good places are…just checked out your page and you are sooo cute!!!! I wanted to master in nutrition too! but going to get my teaching credentials instead…maybe some other time.
