The allergy advice section of their website lists the vegan options. The starters of garlic tortilla & garlic tortilla with chilli are suitable. Check with the staff all the components of main dishes but seasoned roast veg fajita (the ‘Go Lighter’ option swaps corn & jalapenos for cheese & sour cream), five bean chilli tortillas and mango & avocado salad should be alright. BBQ sauce and guacamole are suitable. The skin-on fries and sweet potato fries will be vegan in the unlikely event they are cooked separately from animal products. Lemon sorbet is the only dessert option.

The restaurant served a spaghetti and sauce dish to a customer who had requested a vegan option. On inspection it contained minced meat.
