We need The Veggie Grill in the Bu

Just the best dang vegan food ever...

I've been to a lot of Vegan Restaurants. And a lot of them are really good. But...

THE VEGGIE GRILL has got to be the best, bar none. It's fast, as in lightning. It's friendly, as in like you've never seen in a restaurant. And the food, man. The food is like the best there is. Why?

After a great introduction by server Adrian, awesome conversation with Director of Operations John Anderson, we got an insight into what TVG does to give their customers the best possible experience. They research the ingredients to ensure that they are GOOD FOR YOU. Wow. What a concept. Not that it tastes good first... (and it does), but that you benefit physically, emotionally and spiritually from the grub.

I had the American Stacker, which was basically a Sirloin Burger. Buffalo Wings that were HOT, awesome and mouth-watering. A glass of the best tea I ever had and c=some Chocolate Pudding that they threw in on the house. And that left me speechless, because YOU DON'T MESS WITH A MAN'S PUDDING by making it vegetarian.

But to my utter shock, it was the best dang pudding on the planet!

The Veggie Grill needs to be in Malibu so I can take all my friends. But, for the time being, check out their locations in Cali and Oregon and get there for lunch. I'm not kidding. It will blow your mind because things like the Santa Fe Crispy Chicken Sandwich will leave you in utter "blowmindville..." Good job, guys!

Fireball - it does matter when large national chains destroy the possibility of a town having a healthy balance along with successful independent businesses. The number #1 threat to a small, owner-run business are formula chains. They are systematically creating monopolies across the globe. The Godmother. What would happen if the Olive Garden decides they want her location and because of their enormous financial reserves from their national corporation offers to pay quadruple the rent she can? OUT she goes. That's OK with you? Creating a balance in towns by encouraging both kinds of businesses make sense on every level.

B-A-L-A-N-C-E. It's already been explained here that cities that have ordinances to create balance define a formula "chain" by having certain numbers, most between 8 to15 locations. That simple concept just seems to go way over "some" people's head, no doubt purposefully. I guess huge global corporate monopolies that displace independent businesses across the world and turn every beautiful, unique city into - cloned corporate billboards doesn't concern some people. Unfortunately. Study after study shows that cities with the most vibrant small, independent business are the healthiest economically. When people refuse to post with an actual name - residents really need to question the motives. Which in some cases is far too apparent . . . :)

@Carla- We're talking about retail businesses here, right? On that subject please tell me what it is that makes us in Malibu so special?

I don't understand the question. I consider all people special. I consider Malibu special. I consider beautiful places everywhere special. Sad to lose them. I think people should protect unique places before they are all gone. Just curious why you don't feel you can use your name. Always nice to know with whom I'm communicating.
