So, my boyfriend's mother is coming up tomorrow afternoon and wants to go out to lunch. I suggested my favorite local restaurant that I know has a couple vegan options (last time she came up we went to dinosaur bbq, I don't know if you guys know what that is but its basically a meat pit. the waiting room smells like pork. it was disgusting.) Anyway, she doesn't want to go there. She wants to go to like 5 Guys (burger joint) or IHop. Has anyone successfully eaten vegan at IHop outside of a salad? Any tips in general for eating out at a nonvegan restaurant?
