There are many other options in the area to explore.
Some popular Veg friendly chains include: Planet Sub, Chipotle (pinto beans now vegan? Added Sofritas!), The Mixx, PF Changs, Ruby Tuesday (salad bar), Taco Bell, Panera Bread / Saint Louis Bread Company (breads may not be strictly vegan), Noodles & Company, Pei Wei Asian Diner, Subway, Houstons (veg burger - order vegan bread), among others...
If you're new to a particular type of food and interested in ordering it veg*n, be sure to ask or research what to substitute for or order it without... For example: Thai food often has fish sauce, egg, or oyster sauce. Waldo pizza has soy cheese - which isn't vegan - see their vegan menu. Vietnamese food often uses fish sauce - substitute peanut sauce. Indian food frequently has ghee or butter.
