This is one of my favorite places to eat.  Although I’ve been there several times, I always order the same thing:  Chicken Run Ranch Burger.  Its so good!  The menu is made of non dairy items,  chickenless chicken, tempeh, seitan, and tofu.

The vegan selections all sound good, gut since I grew up loving fries & burgers, I always get the Chicken-less chicken Burger & I’m never disappointed.  Knowing that its made with natural and healthy ingredients, as there are shredded carrots and diced red bell peppers on the burger, makes it better than a beef or turkey on a bun!  The fries are sprinkled with flavor and taste better than most I’ve had (even INnOuts)!

Once, I tried the Native Chicken Wings, and they were pretty tasty too.  They taste crunchier & lighter than normal chicken.  I’d definitely order that again too.

The duel level seating gives off an airy feeling promoted by the high ceilings and the place seems to always be busy with quite a bit of traffic from the patrons as well as the servers.  All the employees are always patient and are quick to offer suggestions and make you aware of the specials or deals.  This small eatery is also popular with the locals.

Their desserts happen to be visible at eye level on the lower floor near the register.  All the desserts are vegan and taste very delicious, light, and so full of flavor, that you don’t miss the usual heavy and fattening ingredients used in sweets.
