Frozen Custard and Veggie Burgers with the works

Bella's Fat Cat serves veggie burgers and veggie hot dogs (regular and Chicago-style), along with frozen custard, malts, fries, onion rings, etc. in a 1950's-themed diner. Bella's also has preservative-free buns and tries to use less-processed foods than most restaurants.

The veggie burgers are not vegan, however. As either veggie dog/burger brands have changed in the past and/or staff is not entirely sure of their ingredients, you may want to ask to see the package.

The veggie burgers are good not home-made but good and you can put lots of toppings on like peppers, onions and tomatoes so they makes them taste better then the standard boxed veggie burger that they are. Don't except anything special when it comes to the staff, they are as boring and uncaring as the staff at a McD's. Nice outdoor seating and they were timely with the order and everything tasted good. The waffle fries and sweet potato fries were a pleasant surprise.

I took my 4-year-old niece here today, and although she's not vegetarian, she loved both the veggie burger and the veggie dog. I preferred the veggie dog, as the burger seemed like a plain Gardenburger, however they were both good. They were both $3 each and I got them with "the works", which was free and included ketchup, mustard, pickles, and fried onions.

At first, I was annoyed with the employees, who didn't know what vegan was and didn't seem interested in checking on ingredients. The chick who rang me up went to look at the box and gave me some weird excuse that I didn't understand about why she couldn't confirm the ingredients. I'm not sure if there were no ingredients listed or if she just couldn't bring out the box or what. When I kept asking why there were no ingredients listed (which seems unlikely), she went and asked the manager, who confirmed that both the veggie dog and veggie burger are vegan. He says they used to not be vegan (which is why I was so set on checking ingredients) but says they have since switched to vegan versions.
