Las Vegas is lucky to have Garden Grill. What started as a pop-up and festival favorite, today Garden Grill is a brick-and-mortar all-vegan restaurant in Las Vegas. The fast-casual restaurant located near Summerlin is what vegan fast food dream are made of. Think the best of KFC, Roberto’s and more, all vegan.
With a massive menu featuring variations of chicken sandwiches, burritos, tacos and more, it’s hard to decide what to order.
So, we’ve made it easy (well, easier). Here are seven dishes to order at Garden Grill that will blow your vegan minds. The eats will also wow your non-vegan friends who always mumble “yeah, I don’t know if I’d like vegan food.”
So, grab your non–vegan friends and show them how tasty vegan versions of fast food favorites can be.
1. Crispy Chick’n Sandwich
The chick’n sandwiches at Garden Grill put all the other chicken sandwiches to shame. Owner Leslie Marroquin has nailed the vegan version of a crispy chicken sandwich. Expect a perfectly battered and crispy-on-the-outside chick’n filet with a little extra crunch. This sandwich comes with lettuce, tomato and chipotle aioli inside a bun.
2. California Burrito
A hefty burrito, Garden Grill’s California version leaves nothing it. Wrapped inside a flour tortilla is Spanish rice, beans, pico de gallo, guac, French fries and plant-based steak. It comes with a side of tortilla chips. Make it gluten-free by swapping the steak for jack asada.
3. Philly Cheeze Steak
When’s the last time you had a Philly Cheese Steak? If you can’t remember, order Garden Grill’s option. This hoagie comes filled with sauteed, Philly-style steak. Also inside are mushrooms, bell peppers and onions. On top is mozzarella-stlye cheese.
4. Carne Asada Fries
The carne asda fries can be an appetizer or a meal. These fries come covered in pico de gallo, chipotle sour cream, cheeze sauce, guac and steak. You can swap the steak for jack asada for a gluten-free version.
5. BBQ Pulled Jackfruit Tacos
The BBQ Pulled Jackfruit Tacos are gluten-free and delicious. The tacos feature sweet, tangy BBQ-marinated pulled jackfruit served on purple and green cabbage and drizzled with creamy dill sauce.
6. 6 Piece Chick’n Strips
The chicken strips from Garden Grill are insane. Insane. Thick, juicy chick’n strips battered and crispy are perfection. They come with a creamy dill sauce, or try the chipotle or buffalo for a kick.
7. Soft Serve Ice Cream
There are barely any restaurants in Las Vegas serving vegan ice cream, let alone vegan soft serve ice cream. Garden Grill has you covered for vegan soft serve ice cream. They have vanilla and then also a featured flavor, like matcha. Get one flavor, or swirl it up.
Bonus: Nashville Hot Chicken Sandwich
The Nashville Hot Chicken Sandwich is the best Nashville Hot we’ve ever had. It’s a special at Garden Grill, and it’s always available. Order this if you love chicken sandwiches and want an extra pop of flavor and the most divine Nashville Hot in Las Vegas.
