My favorite vegan restaurant is Spiral Diner. Homey atmosphere, and very cool people. Not snobbish or pretentious like other veg*n restaurants I've experienced. It really is my favorite place to be.

Other suggestions are coming soon.

I MISS SPIRAL DINER SO BAD!!! I have some recipes from them, which I'm not allowed to give away, sorry, but supposedly they're going to come out with a cookbook. I can't wait because I want more of their recipes, they're so good! If I visit Texas again it's the first place I'm going from the airport, and pretty much every day I'm there and then right before I leave.

....does the guy who dresses like an elf still work there?

Good vegan pizza= Zini's Farmer's Market, no cheese, with marinara (have to ask specifically for marinara). It's soooo good. I make a hack of it every time I make pizza now.

I really liked Roti Grill too for Indian.

New Start Veggie Garden, kind of weird, but totally awesome. .....and Veggie Garden in Richardson for fake orange chicken, went there twice, once for dinner and once for the buffet, the buffet was better.

Oooh! I'm going to watch this thread. My grandparents live in Fort Worth and we drive down to see them usually twice a year (and of course always go to Spiral Diner!), but I'd love to know of a few more options while we're in the area, since they are of the strict steak-and-potatoes type so we have to fend for ourselves.

I know the Ramsey of Ramsey's Perfect Protein Platter! I'm interesting.

I love Fadi's. They have the softest pita I've ever eaten, and their veg platter is AMAZING.

My Mom lives in Flower Mound, and I'm in Texas all of the time. Spiral is amazing. I also love going to the Blue Fish and Freebirds (burritos, I am obsessed). I am also obsessed with Sonic's drinks, even though I can't really eat there. You always love what you don't have, I'm sure nobody else is excited by them...:)

I never went to Cosmic, when I looked at the menu it just looked like a bunch of stuff that would probably be bland and that I could make better myself. Kalachandji's, I meant to go to, but I think I subconsciously never went there because of the whole religious thing, but even my friends who are definitely not vegan or vegetarian loved their food. Maybe next time in the area. I secretly miss the one vegan thing on the menu at that asian diner place......i forget what the name of that place is, it's so horrendous and gross and not even close to being authentic, but also kind of awesome. But most of all I really really really miss Spiral. I think it's the best vegan restaurant I've ever been to ever, and i"ve been to a lot all over the place. I still vote for them in Veg News. I wish someone could mail me like 10 things from them. I hope they're still planning on coming out with a cookbook.
ETA: Spiral made me hate Foodswings now too. When I came back and ate there I felt like I had to puke. After Spiral, none of the places I formerly thought were awesome are awesome anymore, they don't even come close.

I've been. It was pretty good. Similar to Suma Veggie/Veggie Garden except they had a few Italian/American dishes too. They keep odd hours though. I went out there once and they were closed. There aren't many other options in that (kind of sketchy) neighborhood.

I love it! It is kind of weird there, but it was pretty good...some of the american/italian stuff was weird looking, but tasty. It's in a Korean business section.....if you go there, there is a diner nearby with maybe the best name for a diner ever. And if you go there, like vegimator said, they have weird hours. Don't just drive all the way out there expecting them to be open the same as any other restaurant would, you need to actually check their site or yelp or whatever and look at the business hours.

Alright, Dallas Area Vegans! Lets plan something. How about a meet and greet?*

I propose, we chose a date, time and place and hang out for an hour or two. We'll get to know each other. Is that a good idea?

*Creepy stalker murdering rapists are not allow to come.

Not a food recommendation, but Carl "Featherhand" Hallowell (formerly of the late, great Liberty Electric Tattoo in Fort Worth) at Elm Street Tattoo in Dallas is THE best tattoo artist I have ever been to. He's responsible for most of my work, and I swear he can read minds, because I never go in with a detailed idea, I just sort of say "I'm in the mood for an Our Lady of Sorrows" and wham, he comes up with the best idea. He specializes in Traditional American and Japanese styles. Don't know if he uses vegan ink, though, I got all of mine before vegness.

On Thursday December 23, I will be at Spiral Diner in Dallas hanging out with my 2 best friends (they're omni, but nobody's perfect). If you'd like to come out and join us, we will be there around 4PM. Just look for a black girl with short dreads. I'll probably be knitting. There will be plenty of room at our table, so don't be shy.
