About our Restaurant

El Palote doesn't look too different from the scores of other Mexican restaurants around Dallas, but one thing sets it apart from the pack: it's completely vegan. North Texas' first vegan Mexican restaurant, El Palote opened in 2015 only serving vegan food on Thursdays. But its vegan offerings became so popular that by September 2016, it had gone 100 percent plant-based.

"The reason we're so popular isn't because we're vegan," Arias said. "It's because our food is delicious. Whether people are vegan, vegetarian, flexitarian or even if they love meat, they all enjoy the flavors, the spice, and the quality of our tacos, fajitas and nachos."
