Blind Bob's — Noah's Garden Burger

When you want the tastiest bar food in town, the obvious choice is Blind Bob's. Noah's Garden Burger has a lot of flavor and when you take a bite, you can see all the veggies that make this a true garden burger. It comes with chips but if you're looking to go into a comfort food coma, you should definitely spring for their delicious waffle fries.

Agnes All Natural Grill - Black Bean Burger

Lunch time is the perfect time to grab a veggie burger, and downtown Agnes All Natural Grill has you covered with their black bean burger. It comes topped with mayo, lettuce, onion, and tomato with your choice of whole wheat bun or their World Famous CoCo Bread. What is CoCo bread, you might ask?  It's a homemade Caribbean bread made with a hint of coconut milk and tastes similar to Hawaiian bread. Whole wheat is fine and all, but you'd be nuts not to try this burger with CoCo bread!

Butter Cafe - Vegan Burger

Most veggie burgers can only promise to be vegetarian friendly, so it's especially awesome to find a vegan burger – and when you find it at the tasty Butter Café, you know you're about to have an amazing sandwich. This house-made burger is full of flavor and is topped with a slab of tomato, crisp lettuce, fresh red onion and a generous dollop of vegan mayo (which, by the way, is the best mayo I've ever tasted — no joke!). It comes with a side of their delicious, garlicky potatoes.

Tank’s Bar & Grill - Lori’s Veggie Burger 

In the past you couldn't expect to find a veggie burger on your neighborhood bar's menu, but Tanks seems to have always had Lori's Veggie Burger with the wording "Hold the meat, I like animals but I love veggies." When you're in the mood for a traditional veggie burger with tons of toppings but in a neighborhood bar setting, try Tanks (and bring your quarters for Ms. Pac Man - don't worry, you can eat all the ghost meat you want - I'm pretty sure it doesn't count).

Lucky’s Taproom - Fleetwood Burger

In case you were wondering what all vegetarians want from a restaurant, visit Lucky’s, because they have it all figured out. Their entire burger menu can be made meatless. Seriously. Every super-creative burger on their menu is available to vegetarians! The only problem is that vegetarians are not accustomed to having so many choices, so it may take you a lot longer to decide what to eat. Luckily, they also have a ton of craft beers to choose from to sip on while you’re selecting the perfect burger.

It's made with vegetables and nuts for an unique taste and texture. Meadowlark has been offering vegetarian meals long before it was the cool thing to do, so you know that their veggie burger is one to try!
