Indian

  • Masala Wok at Arbor Walk (Mopac) has really yummy soup and pretty good Indo-Chinese dishes

  • Tarka on Anderson has good palak paneer

Pizza

  • Conan's Pizza on Anderson - go on Tuesday for "Don't Choke Art" or Thursday for Mushroom & Spinach on the buffet

  • Doubledave's Pizza on Mesa - just opened in May, usually has veggie pizza and spinach stromboli on the buffet

  • Mangia on Mesa - stuffed spinach pizza

Sandwiches

  • Jersey Mike's on 183 is a common lunch destination for my co-workers, I like the cold veggie sub with lots of peppers and light mayo

  • Texadelphia at Arbor has grilled veggie "cheesesteaks" with waffle fries and yummy mustard sauce, plus my card gives me a free meal at birthday time

  • Which Wich on Anderson lets you custom build sandwiches with lots of veggie options

  • Jimmy John's at Braker has an OK veggie sandwich, and they very frequently deliver to the office

  • Black Star Co-op has a great grilled cheese and fries, get it with the fresh jalepenos

Mexican

  • Bullritos at Arbor is passable burritos and nachos, but mainly included because it's close

  • Dos Batos on Anderson has a tasty torta with wood-grilled veggies and very nice bread

  • Chuy's at 183 & Duval usually has outdoor spots and a great veggie combo

Other
