Bar and restaurant in Bayview with numerous vegan options

Restaurant, Bar

Deep fried everything. Vegan appetizers, sandwiches, and desserts, including: chicken fried tofu, beer brat, riblet, BBQ seitan sandwich, fried Tempeh-Lettuce-Tomato sandwich, Tofullow wings (half wheat meat, half tofu), and deep fried vegan banana split. Something for everyone. A classy dive.

The restaurant is non-smoking.

OLD REVIEW: I've been to Palomino's 3 times now and it has become my "bar food" vegan place. I'm not saying the food is bad in any way, in fact, quite the opposite. This is the kind of place where I come to drink some Spotted Cow and scarf down a Seitan Steak with Tater Tots, or maybe some Vegan Buffalo Wings and a large stack of Onion Rings.

NEW REVIEW: Palomino's recently finished remodeling and retooling the menu, and sadly, I am no longer in love with this place.

Nearly half of the Vegan items, including most of my favorites, have been removed from the menu. Additionally, Appetizers and Entrees are now Ala-carte, which means the sides cost extra. Everything is now made in-house, which explains the higher prices, but I still felt like I was paying too much.

We ordered some Vegan Wings to start. They're basically the "Toffalo “Wings" they served before, minus the fries. Price was about the same.

I had the Bean Burger with Tater tots. Overall it was bland, so I ended up adding lots of condiments to enhance the taste. Tots were OK.

My Wife had the Vegan Pork Sandwich, but received the non-Vegan version. This was not realized until the first bite. The staff was kind enough to replace the sandwich with the Vegan version and drop the item from our bill, but for my Wife, the damage was done.

Palomino's was, by far, our favorite Vegan restaurant in Milwaukee... this is no longer the case. I plan to give them another shot in a few months, but I'm not holding my breath.

Just because you're vegan doesn't mean you can't indulge in some deep fried goodness. There is no better bar food than the vegan faux boy and the new sweet potato tots....maybe with some teese sticks as an appetizer! The only bad thing is that with the new menu they got rid of the spicy deep fried tofu sandwich.
