For some, eating a plant-based diet is a lifestyle choice. For others, it’s a medical necessity. A vegan diet can have many benefits, such as inducing weight loss, enhancing cardiovascular health, mitigating diabetes, and strengthening the immune system against certain carcinogens. That said, maintaining a purely vegan diet can be difficult, especially when you’re running errands or catching up with friends. But having quality go-to restaurants that offer vegan options can help you meet your special dietary needs.
Read on for our list of top vegan-friendly restaurants around Las Vegas.
The Garden Grill is a hidden gem in Las Vegas. They began as a small pop-up and expanded to a brick-and-mortar establishment ready to serve you quality vegan fare. Gluten- and soy-free options are also available on some menu items. We suggest you begin your meal with some beer-battered mushrooms from the snacks section of their menu. These tasty bites are crimini mushrooms beer-battered and fried to a golden crisp. The Garden Grill serves these with a house-made dill sauce for dipping.
Then, grab a California burrito. This filling entree is a flour tortilla filled with Spanish rice, beans, pico de gallo, fries, guacamole, and plant-based steak. Or take the kids along with you and let them sample the cheese quesadilla (from the children’s menu) or the equally delicious chick’n strips. These kids classics with a vegan twist will please even the pickiest of little ones.
The Garden Grill is located in the Summerlin Gateway Plaza at 7550 W Lake Mead Boulevard, Suite 8. Hours of operation Wednesday through Saturday are from 11 a.m to 7 p.m and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. They offer dine-in services, curbside pickup, and no-contact delivery. For more information, call 702-929-2244.
If you’re craving some crunchy, gooey, cheesy nachos, then Simply Pure is your answer. Chef Stacey Dougan has worked tirelessly to bring comfort food to the vegan community. The restaurant serves anything from baked mac and cheese to a healthy serving of Mama Mia Lasagna. To cure your Mexican food craving, get their Nachos Grande. It’s a layer of fresh corn tortilla chips, topped with protein beef, cheddar cheese sauce, scallions, and sour cream. Take this dish home to enjoy with your favorite beer. You won’t be disappointed.
You’ll find this little nook at 707 Fremont Street, Suite 1310. Check their website for updated hours of operation. If you’re interested in their catering services for your next special event, call them. Their number is 702-810-5641.
VegeNation — a community-centric outfit — offers fresh street food in Downtown Las Vegas. They work with local small businesses to source beer, alcohol, coffee, tea, and cheeses. They also collaborate with local school gardens, area farmers, community gardens, and freight farms to find quality ingredients for each plate. Everything on the menu at VegeNation is 100% plant-based.
For a satisfying meal, order the Downtown Tony. It’s a large sauteed Portobello mushroom with caramelized onions, smoked gouda, slaw, and sriracha aioli. What’s more, the Downtown Tony is served with ketchup and fresh-cut fries to maximize the diner’s experience. If you want something gluten-free, try the eggplant stacks. The dish is layers of roasted eggplant served with house-made cashew ricotta, melted mozzarella, and San Marzano tomato sauce. This entree is the ultimate comfort food after a long day.
On Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., VegeNation also has a brunch menu. Choose from traditional brunch favorites like chicken and waffles or crepes. All dishes are vegan, of course.
The restaurant has a location downtown on Carson Avenue and one in Henderson on Eastern Avenue, so you’re sure to find yourself a tasty vegan meal nearby. Check the website for location hours. For information about their catering services, call 702-366-8515.
If you want junk fast food without the junk, head over to Veggy Street. This local vegan favorite began operations in 2016 with a mission to offer customers a 100% vegan menu with incredible flavors. This casual dining restaurant has comfort foods — free of any animal product — to cure your cravings. You can get that cheeseburger, hotdog, and chili cheese fries with the confidence that your meal is causing the least environmental impact possible. Veggy Street serves no meat but great food.
They offer a delicious falafel cheeseburger using a house-made falafel patty, hydroponic butter lettuce, and tahini. The flavors combine so well, even the most dedicated carnivores will likely not miss the meat. Try their chili dog made with vegan sausage on a pretzel bun. They top it with chili, red onions, cilantro, and creamy mozzarella for a completely satisfying meal with every bite.
If you’re looking for something a little more indulgent, they have Carne Asada Chili Cheese Fries. This dish includes a generous serving of French fries covered in chili and topped with meatless beef strips. The entire surface is then sprinkled with mozzarella cheese, cilantro, chopped red onions, and jalapeno pickles. Wash everything down with their Acai Lemonade for $4. It is sweet, refreshing, and perfectly tart.
Veggy Street has two locations — at 2135 S Fort Apache and 1110 E Silverado Ranch — ready to serve you. You can even pre-order your meal for pickup to receive faster service. For information, get in touch with them at 702-798-0708 or 702-263-7774.
