FEZ: Black Bean Veggie Burger FEZ serves up a veggie burger that is nothing sort of delicious.The patty consists of grilled cumin and garlic black beans on fresh wheat ciabatta with roasted tomato goat cheese spread, topped with radish and red onion slaw and side options of salad or fries. The well-seasoned burger is very moist and tends to slide off the bun, so grab a fork to finish the job.

New York Flavor: Veggie Burger New York Flavor definitely knows what they are doing in the veggie burger business. Chef Craig Emmons makes the patty from his own creative recipe, charring it to give the burger a crispy grilled taste. The burger comes on a light, airy bun, topped with lettuce, tomato, onion and honey mustard. Sides include potato salad, coleslaw, pasta salad, fries, or a side salad.

Pomegrante Cafe: Teriyaki Burger with Stir Fry Pomegrant Cafe tries a new spin on veggie burgers by offering a different "Pom" Burger special each day. The day's patty will be placed on a grain bun served with root vegetable fries, pomegranate BBQ and a side choice including berry salad, vegan cole slaw or hummus and veggies. We tried the Teriyaki Burger with Stir Fry patty, which tasted just like stir fry -- in patty form. The burger was moist and complemented the bun by letting all the flavor come from the patty. The pomegranate BBQ sauce was just sweet enough to drizzle over the patty and the side berry salad with the berry dressing was almost like a dessert.
