When most people think Fort Worth dining, Vegan fare is probably not the first thing that comes to mind. However, it’s time to readjust that thinking, because nestled in the heart of Near Southside District on Magnolia Avenue, may be the best Vegan restaurant I’ve ever been to, the Spiral Diner & Bakery.

Spiral Diner is located right on Magnolia Avenue across the street from Avoca Coffee. The place has a very cool, fun, hipster feel to it. Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, the menu offers a wide range of choices from Philly Cheese Steaks, to tacos to meatballs (all Vegan). If you’re not a Vegan, these options could sound weird, seeing as they are not made of actual meat. However, Vegan or not, I suggest you give them a try!

My husband and I recently went for lunch and tried the El Paso Burger, the Cowboy Burger and the Chocolate Mountain Mudslide for desert. My husband, being neither Vegan nor Vegetarian, was skeptical about how a burger would taste, without any burger, so to speak. However, even being a red-meat loving kind of guy, he thought it was delicious! The portions were just right and the burgers were hardy, satisfying and full of flavor.

If you’re a chocolate lover, then definitely try the Chocolate Mountain Mudslide. It’s basically chocolate on chocolate goodness. A warm brownie smothered in chocolate chips, chocolate syrup, whipped cream and covered in peanuts (also all Vegan!). I happen to have a best friend who is Vegan, so I am really excited to take her by the next time she’s in town. The Spiral Diner is truly an example of just how diverse the dining options in Fort Worth really are! For more information on Fort Worth restaurants, Click Here.
