We strive to provide a wide range of options for vegetarians, vegans and omnivores alike in order to promote healthier choices in a fast-food world.

Houston is the next step in Green helping Texans transition from fat to fit, with its third vegetarian restaurant location at 6720 Chimney Rock Rd, Ste. Y, Houston TX 77081.

Originating out of San Antonio, Green is 100 percent vegetarian and Houston Kushruth Association (HKA) kosher certified. Green’s menu is also versatile in creating anything on their menu as vegan, when requested, from their Protein Bowl to the Big Nasty Burger.

The hours for Green Vegetarian Cuisine are: Sunday, 9 a.m. – 9 p.m.; Monday-Thursday, 11 a.m. – 9 p.m.; Friday, 11 a.m. – 8 p.m.; Saturday, Closed.

“Green’s mission is to serve delicious and affordable vegetarian comfort food to Houston’s diverse community,” said Owner and Executive Chef Mike Behrend. “We strive to provide a wide range of options for vegetarians, vegans and omnivores alike in order to promote healthier choices in a fast-food world.”

Already the reviews after the first day of opening have been positive:

“Yay! They're here! I've been to the one in San Antonio so many times, toooking [sic] class with them one night as well. I absolutely love their menu…” Tom B., Yelp Reviewer

“Just opened today and it is finally nice to have a modern vegitarian [sic] restaurant for all taste buds in the Houston area. The menu had a wide variety of options at reasonable prices. Staff was very friendly and food came quickly. Protein salade [sic] was very good. Large portion. Looking forward to trying the rest of the menu items soon.” Michael P., Yelp Reviewer

“The food is just as good as in San Antonio. Well priced, service with a smile. I even had help to my car since I had my baby with me. Thank you Thomas!! We'll be back!!!” Yismo R., Facebook comment

The beginnings for Green Vegetarian Cuisine was humble. The dream of a vegetarian restaurant was created by Executive Chef Mike, whom was renowned in San Antonio for his chicken-fried steak and five-pound cinnamon rolls. However after becoming vegetarian and loosing 70 pounds, Mike took step towards introducing a plant based diet to South Central Texas when he opened Green in January 2007. Since then the restaurant has expanded to two San Antonio locations, and has received numerous awards in recognition of its accomplishments.

Houston’s location helps close the gap in reaching Green Vegetarian Cuisine’s goal to share the benefits of a plant based diet and be a more sustainable restaurant -- in hopes that others are influenced to do the same.
