When my friend/vegan babe Andy came to visit Austin earlier this week, I had to take her to Arlo’s! There are so many good vegan places and places with vegan options in Austin, and Arlo’s is at the top of my must-try list. Andy isn’t even a big veggie burger fan, and she loved it!
Of course, if you’re going to get the cheese burger, you have to get some tots too. They have gluten free buns available (ask for no bac’n as well if you’re gf because it’s seitan), which is what I got, and Andy got the classic Bac’n Cheeseburger.
There are three Arlo’s locations, but we chose the one at Spiderhouse because Milky Way Shakes (all vegan shakes!) is there too. I went to Milky Way Shakes on their opening day recently, but they were sold out, so I’ve been looking forward to trying them. I got the Star-Berry Lemon Cloud with strawberry compote, lemon curd, and meringues, and to me it kind of tasted like strawberry cheesecake–it was delicious! Andy got a classic vanilla with chocolate fudge. Yum.
Spiderhouse also has coffee and a bar, so it’s a win-win-win! If you go in the evenings, Cool Beans (a vegan taco truck) is there as well (it wasn’t open when we went around lunch.)
Have you been to Arlo’s or Milky Way Shakes? What are your fave things to order? What are your must try vegan spots in Austin? Let me know in the comments!
