Unfortunately, I do not like black beans which is a problem sometimes as a vegetarian; much like zucchini and squash, black beans are frequently used in vegetarian dishes (along with portobello mushrooms which I do like). This dislike of black beans kept me from Neo Burrito despite my husband’s pleas, and I now regret my recalcitrance.
For Dining Out for Life this year, my husband insisted that we stay south plus we needed a kid friendly place. I caved in light of his persistence and logistics, and we headed over to Neo Burrito in Biltmore Park. I loved all the vines inside the restaurant, and LB loved the fish tank. The seating is really cramped inside so I recommended choosing a patio seat.
For my meal I ordered poorly by choosing the Smiling Hara burrito without rice and beans because I assumed the beans and rice would be mixed; they are not so next time I’ll get the rice or get a tempeh taco for about half the price. Don’t get me wrong, the food was good, but it wasn’t a cost effective choice. I was confused because based on the menu I didn’t expect to watch my food being made so next time I’ll know it is more of a build your own operation. LB loved her kid quesadilla, and it was enough to feed her (great bonus since it was a sweet $2.25). They have a salsa bar, and you serve your own drinks and bus your own table. I love seeing the compost, recycle, and landfill bins!
They had plenty of bottled beers to choose from along with some taps; it is great to live in a city with plenty of microbrews to choose. My friend says be sure t try the baked goods beside the register, and another suggests their ten cent beer nights.
