Always something new and delicious on special. Amazing sandwiches and salads. Laid back atmosphere. Brunch is the best!

Great restaurant, the food is awesome, we've eaten there several times and it's always great!! The staff are really super nice and helpful and the vibe of the place is really nice too. It's just a win/win going there, I highly recommend it.

I've been to this place a couple of times now, once for brunch, the other for lunch. I really loved the tofu omelet with tempeh bacon. The texture and flavors were wonderful! My boyfriend got the tofu rancheros, which I didn't like quite as much, but his seitan sausage was really good. I want to go back to try some more of the lunch options. I feel good about what I consume here. All diet compliances are noted on the menu. Nice, clean eating!

I love food and grew up in an environment that nurtured a healthy appetite rather than an appreciation of healthy food. Counter Culture bridges that gap. The dishes satisfies my love of southern & comfort food without sacrificing the flavor or the portion sizes. The Country Biscuit bowl (brunch) is spicy and rich but doesn't leave me feeling bloated and full all day long. Lunch options like the Jackfruit BBQ & Tempeh Rueben taste delicious and always leave me satisfied. Gonna head there now; this review is making me hungry.

While I have been a vegetarian for most of my life, I am not a vegan, and I am an unabashed fan of all things dairy- cheese is my worst dietary Achilles' heel, and an existence without it is not something I want to contemplate. For this reason, vegan cuisine is not usually something I seek out, although I'm certainly always open to trying it out. I volunteered for Texas VegFest this past year, and one of the perks we received in exchange for our service was a catered "thank you" party at Counter Culture- an ideal way to try the restaurant, as I got to sample a little of each of their specialties. What I found was decisively hit-or-miss. I was most excited to try the "Mac & Cheeze," made with cashew sauce, which I'd been told was just as good as its non-vegan equivalent. Well, it wasn't horrible, but while the cashew sauce had a pleasantly creamy texture, the flavor was just a bit too bland to approximate real mac and cheese. The jackfruit enchiladas were better. The shredded jackfruit has a texture and flavor which is unique without being off-putting, and the sauce on top was rich and flavorful. The seitan sausage and sauerkraut appetizers and the vegan queso both suffer from the same problem- the flavor is good, but both have a texture which is dry and almost grainy. The biggest surprise at Counter Culture for me was also one of the simpler items on the menu: the Pac Man salad, a mix of kale, carrots, and chia seeds topped with a light garlic dressing which complemented the natural flavors of the vegetables, rather than overpowering it. This is an item I would come in specifically to order for lunch, if I was in the area. Counter Culture's brunch menu looked appealing, and I'd love to come in again specifically to try out the tofu rancheros or stuffed French toast. However, the lunch and dinner entree items just fell a little short for me to recommend this place. The litmus test for vegan and vegetarian dining is usually "would a carnivore like it too?" In that respect, I have to say Counter Culture doesn't live up to its potential.

Counter Culture is more than just amazing food for Vegans. My boyfriend and I are not Vegans and we absolutely loved our meals AND the service. Angela was working in the kitchen that day and she killed it! I had the biscuits and gravy and my boyfriend had the french toast. The food was amazing. We'll definitely be back again. Go support this sustainable local business venture!

Note: I am not a vegan and probably never will be, but I will eat at CC again. I went for lunch on a weekday with a friend, they have a nice outdoor patio but we opted to sit inside. It is pretty sparsely decorated and kind of still feels like the old Mexican restaurant it probably used to be. The hostess/waitress was incredibly nice and answered any and all of our questions about some of the dishes. The menu is fairly small, and they had a couple of (delicious sounding) specials on the board. We opted for the hot Spinach Artichoke Dip w/gluten free bread ($9) appetizer...I must say I was pleasantly surprised! I believe it's made with nut cheese, and it was very creamy and tasty; the GF bread that came with it was superb. I ordered the Pesto 'Rawvioli' with a garden salad and jalapeno cornbread as my sides ($13) and my friend had the Mac 'n' Cheese with a Cesar salad and roasted vegetables ($13). Everything was really, shockingly (to me) good! I never would've guessed that mac 'n' cheese was vegan. I definitely plan on returning to try the rest of the menu.
