    vegan daiya cheeseburger at veggie grill

    listen up!! the veggie grill has invented some amazing new daiya cheese-filled recipes, and they are testing them out starting today at the el segundo location to see how they are received. i couldn’t resist heading over there this afternoon and ordering all 3 new menu items. every single one was absolutely awesome, and i implore you to go taste for yourself.

    first i tried the vg cheeseburger (pictured above), which is basically the standard v burger slathered with gooey cheese. this meal contains two of my favorite vegan products ever, daiya and gardein, and it sure is a winning combo. if you like cheeseburgers (even if you aren’t vegan!), you will love this thing…it’s thick, juicy, and cheesy as can be.

    vegan mac and cheese at veggie grill

    since the vg cheeseburger comes with a side, i ordered it with the new vegan mac and cheese. again, this stuff was made with daiya and it was really fucking good! i don’t know what veggie grill did to it, but this daiya was creamier than any i’ve ever tasted. i’m so used to having it chopped up and melted in little shreds, but in this it was completely smooth. plus, i think it had some jalapenos mixed in to give it a little kick. yum!

    vegan nachos at veggie grill

    lastly, i got an order of the nachos…and before you ask, no i did NOT eat all this at once!! i took most of it home and it’s in the fridge. the nachos were excellent, and are definitely my favorite of the new menu items. crisp tortilla chips covered in melty daiya and fully loaded with beans, salsa, guacamole, sour cream and cilantro….all for under 5 bucks!

    please take my advice and get out to the veggie grill el segundo location NOW. and if you can’t go now, be sure to go ASAP. the chick working the counter told me they are only trying out these menu items, and won’t keep them around if they don’t do well. i can tell you, they are amazing….so let’s make them do well.

  • I was there at lunchtime. Must have been standing in the same line as you. WHO IS QUARRYGIRL????

    The Mac and Cheese is out of this world, far better than my previous favorite at Taste of Life.

    I’m sorry I didn’t try the nachos, now, but the V Cheese Burger was out of this fucking world. They too a good burger and made it better.

    What a great time and place to be a vegan.

  • I WANT THIS NOW…I am coming over and raiding your fridge!!!!


  • I went straight to El Segundo after reading this review. I was disappointed. The mac-n-cheese was runny and bland. I had them add the cheese to my Stack (instead of the V-burger) and I couldn’t even taste it. The nachos also were boring, way worse than RFD’s nachos. I salute Veggie Grill for trying to expand into the cheesy realm, and they remain one of my favorite places to get an indulgent meal, but this didn’t cut it for me. I honestly don’t even believe cheese is actually daiya.

  • Went to Veggie Grill in El-Seg Sat. night to try the Daiya, thanks to your alert. Their version of Daiya is a special blend that they’ve created (spicier), plus due to their 7-min. out rule and no microwaves, they had the challenge of making it nacho-melty. I loved it, so did my hubby. It’s an exact replica of the non-vegan nachos.
