Botana's is a traditional Mexican restaurant that has a huge menu. Unfortunately, most of it is not vegan. The beans are vegetarian, but you may want double check when there, as some employees have said they have two kinds of beans. The rice is cooked with chicken, but the guacamole is vegan.
The menu asks that you not request substitutions, but the waiters will allow you to substitute if you explain that you are vegetarian/vegan, and can't eat most of the items on the menu (which contain meat and dairy, but you can request to have left out).
The restaurant is very large and can accommodate large groups and parties.

No, they don't have a huge amount of options, BUT their food is fantastic and their service can't be beat! The beans are vegan, but the rice is not (that was debated online for a while, and I got official word the last time I went there). I always get either the veggie fajitas with beans and guac, "vegetarian tacos" (which some waiters are confused by) which is peppers, onions, avocado slices or guac, lettuce, tomatoes, and beans, or the taco salad with just veggies, beans and guac. It's basically the same ingredients in all, just served a few different ways. And every time, it hits the spot! The warm tortilla chips are addictive, the margaritas are really strong, and the atmosphere is fun. (Oh, and order the beans with no cheese... they normally come with shredded cheese on top)
Their chips and salsa was really good, and so was the guac. They have a vegetarian section just beware of the cheese. Pretty much the same deal as any other mexican restaurant though.
