Hey Sally last time I was going through Waco I stopped to eat at Fazoli's and got a little lost on my way to find a gas station, and I found a little restaurant that had sandwiches, vegetarian chili, smoothies, and pizza. Tons of vegetarian stuff on the menu, and it was a tiny, family-owned place. I can't remember the name of it, do you know what I'm talking about?

Hmmm....do you know what part of Waco you were in? We have a lot of restaurants so I might know if you can remember something that was near by...Terry & Jo's Food for Thought comes to mind, if it was out near Baylor and across from H-E-B

She's in her second year there, I think. Her name is M4ry 4shley Gr3d3ll, she's involved with the school newspaper there if I remember correctly (or at least she used to be).

Yep, Terry & Jo's Food For Thought...that was it! I was really surprised to find something like that in Waco. Are there other veg-friendly places?

There are a few, mostly chains though...Camille's sidwalk Cafe in the new Cen Tex Market place has some good meatless wraps and sanwiches, and bigger chains like Backyard Burger (they have boca burgers) , Jason's Deli and Souper Salad all have vegetarian friendly stuff. Plus the new(ish) H-E-B in Hewitt has some really good vegetarian products. Waco didn't used to have anything but it is growing pretty fast and as it does more variety is comming in!





There is one other little place that I have yet to try that my mom told me about, I can't remember the name of it though...she said it is really good and lots of vegetarian stuff.

That's awesome! My sister is thinking about going to Baylor and she's vegetarian too. I'll have to pass along the info. And now I know I'll have some good places to eat next time I'm on my way to Austin.

I live in the Hill Country. In the Deer Capital of Texas to be exact. Being a veg is going to be hard in some ways and easy in others here. I think the only thing made out of soy in the entire town is soy milk. I have to drive at least 45 minutes or so to do my grocery shopping. However, we do have some local farmers who grow all sorts of veggies, and I hear we are getting a farmer's market starting next month! I'm hoping someone actually has some "real" free range eggs.

I live in Llano. I have never heard of Leakey. I'll have to check out a map on that one. If you can at least find a big HEB, you ought to be alright.

No way!! I'm from Euless! I was born and grew up there, graduated from Trinity!! I moved to San Antonio a couple years ago for school, but my family is still there. Dang, we probably have some kind of connection, since Euless is such dinky place.



My fiance and I are going up to visit next week for spring break, hurray!

Michelleomg and I went up to Euless to visit her parents and there's a restaurant in Fort Worth that we fell in love with.

The Spiral Diner has delicious sammiches and cookies, among other things. And all-you-can-eat pancakes on Sunday mornings! Go go go there a lot, DFWers.

I've been to Spiral Diner many times. It is so good. It is nice to close my eyes and point to something on the menu rather than have to search or ask for something without meat on it.

Hi I take my jack russell, Charlie, to Acres North Animal Hospital on Thousand Oaks & 281. My vet is Dr. Kyle Crowley and we LOVE him!! He loves Charlie and lets him lick all over his face when he's getting his exam and they're always very gentle. I've also been to the other vet in the practice, Dr. Abernathy, once when Dr. C was on vacation, and she was amazing too. I highly reccomend them!



Acres North Animal Hospital

16302 San Pedro Avenue

San Antonio, TX 78232

(210) 494-3436



EDIT: I forgot to mention this is on the Northside, kinda north-central. But even if it's a bit of a drive, I still recommend them!



Good luck with your search

thanks for that recommendation! on another note, me and my hubby and 2 year old girl went to Green here in san antonio. um..... i won't say anything about the guy behind the counter, ill just talk about what we ate. tofu buffalo appetizer- no flavor but i liked the texture- it came laid on some tobasco sauce- not some special sauce they made. i had portabella burger- no flavor at all, i tried to add salt to it and still no success. fries no flavor. hubby had green burger, he said no flavor. daughter got grilled cheese and fruit salad, it was okay, sandwich wasnt greasy which was nice. the pablano dressing i got with my salad, no flavor. the white dip that came with buffalo tofu had no flavor either. umm... thats all i have to say about that.
