There's no vegetarian places as far as I know, but I've been told there's one on the South side of Jacksonville. I'd really like to see if this place actually exists one day.
When I go out to eat with others, especially at seafood resturaunts or steakhouses, I normally order garden salads with oil & vinegar dressing, specify whether or not the vegetables or rices are cooked in butter or beef/chicken stock before ordering, or edit the meals on the menu to my liking. I always end up sharing fried mushrooms or onions with my party and using cocktail dip alongside my salad and (small choice of) vegetables. Of course, it sucks having to eat a salad when you're frankly just not in the mood for it, and it sucks even more having to eat fried appetizers as a main course at some places.
You'd think people would choose a more diverse place to eat when a vegetarian's tagging along, but no, I guess not. I mean, STEAKHOUSES of all places.
At Moe's Southwest Grill, I ordered their Art Vandalay (vegetarian) minus the cheese and sourcream, then added mushrooms, peppers, and onions. They also have a few other vegetarian items on the menu, but cheese is the main part of the meals, so the Art Vandalay is the best option for the vegan out there wanting something less bland. I was just surprised I was able to get something for quick takeout that was completely VEGAN and good, well, aside from the veggie sub at Subway. I thought it was worth a mention for those of you out there that have a Moe's.
Anyway, I empathize.
