  • Helps me stay in the game

    By SM - Waxa
    While traveling or at home in the DFW metroplex, this is a great resource. Hoping now for more vegan restaurants who offer low salt options and that Happy Cow can help us find them!
  • Vegan Haven

    By Shane_Hall
    I use this app religiously, and I love it. It’s handy when on travel, or even discovering new places close to home. Writing reviews are easy, and the pros and cons descriptions are a nice touch. Highly recommend!
  • I love this app

    By thebuffblondie
    This app is super helpful! Always using it to contribute and take part in the vegan community! Really helps find yummy plant based foods wherever you are! Makes it Super convenient and simple to eat veg anywhere
  • Changes

    By Linsze
    When I first got this app it was great. But it has since changed. I don't like the changes. It is more unuser-friendly. Maybe there should be instructions to getting around the app.
  • THANKS for helping me eat healthy on the road

    By tryingtobevegan
    This app has been such a great travel aid when I can’t eat at home. Thanks for helping me stay healthy!!!!
  • Best app to find a place to eat!

    By BoymomJBH
    This app has never let me down and I seem to find tiny holes in the wall to big chains I never would have thought to try. Really great for traveling.
  • Great app for travel!

    By Chaunly
    My husband and I travel a lot so this app is perfect to help us find meals while on the go. The only addition I would make is google map integration. I would love to pull up locations on the map to easily plan my travel day and a meal at each location. We have not been disappointed with the recommendations.
  • Better yet

    By Watch Earthlings on YouTube
    Cubeoftruth.com/ !!! Good app to recommend! It’s like PlugShare but for veg!
  • Great for Traveling

    By Uloq
    An absolute godsend for traveling. Especially when said place does not have much English around. Thank you Happy Cow!
  • Very helpful

    By nshsbwlsisa dmxksbbdnx
    I just started using it and I really like it!!!!! I’m certainly trying to add a vegan restaurant and it’s kinda hard. Other than that, awesome app!
  • Invaluable resource

    By carelitz
    This is one of my most used apps. Perfect for finding vegan and vegan friendly restaurants in town or while traveling.

  • Life-saver 🤩

    By Coffey-Cake
    Without this app, I’d probably be lost finding Vegan options.. Best App in my phone ❤️
  • Terrific Vietnamese Saigon Noodle House NOLA

    By Booehiker
    Today I had the vegan spring rolls with tofu plus pho (vegan, veggies and tofu, rice noodles, veggie broth). They arrived hot, fresh veggies, delicious. The veggie broth was tasty and NOT salt laden. The pho was accompanied by fresh bamboo shoots, abundant basil, lime slices, jalapeño slices. The service was quick, friendly, helpful. I highly recommend.
  • Amazing

    By Zarlicious
    Visiting from Texas and dropped in on this gem! I do not normally review but tried their special of the day which was their award winning flatiron steak burger! Award winning it was!!!! Yum. Sweet potato waffle fries were good to.
  • Love this app!

    By Mollyc9876
    I seldom go out to eat because I don’t want the hassle of trying to find something I can eat. This app makes it a 100 times easier!
  • Amazing

    Just love this app!
  • Lifesaver

    By debaser78
    I was born and raised a strict vegetarian and I travel a lot for work. I’ve been using happy cow for 10 years now, and this app has changed my life. I used to go overseas (Korea/Japan/China) and was completely lost when it came to finding food. I’d be lucky to go on a trip and have some bread and water to eat. Happycow has literally changed my life. Now I can go alllllmosssst anywhere and be able to find a great meal. I don’t think I’ve been to a city in the last 4 years where happycow didn’t have listings. This is awesome.
  • Keep me well fed in all parts of the world

    By Findlay Chandra
    I am a vegetarian, San naturally looking for suitable food while traveling was a challenge. For the last two years, since I downloaded the app, “happy cow” has solved the problem and always kept me well fed!
  • Don’t wait to buy it

    By Simply_laurenc
    I waited so long to buy this app because I hate paying for apps. But this is 100% my favorite app I have. For the people who are writing bad reviews about it just don’t understand it yet. Download it I promise you won’t regret it!
  • Best app ever!!!

    By Del 😁
    This app is so cool and gives you the peace of mind that you'll find what you're looking for especially for vegans and vegetarians!
  • D2.0

    By AB 2.0
    I love this app because it’s shown me where vegan restaurants were located which otherwise I wouldn’t have had a clue. I travel a lot throughout Southern California and this app has been great for me in that regards.
  • Great App for Vegans, Vegetarians

    By NoelV
    Or just people who want to eat healthy. The app truly shines when I’m traveling.
  • Necessary for all vegans who eat out.

    By Unknown 5 :)
    So much more comprehensive than yelp/google for finding veg-restaurants. Not to mention sorting by pure veg, or veg-option restaurants to eat out with your picky non vegan friends.
  • Priceless

    By Lowell Zapata
    Happy Cow is an absolute life-saver for my family while traveling. It’s important to check your filters when searching, as many less less-populated areas have no “Vegan” restaurants, but often DO have “Veg-friendly” places. Of course, as vegans, it’s up to us to help build this database so our fellow travelers in this world can find and support Veg businesses. Happy Cow makes it easy to do so.
  • HappyCow is Amazing!

    By Wewex007
    I love the HappyCow app it’s so easy to use and we always find amazing vegan restaurants when ever we travel to new cities!
  • The app keeps logging me out!

    By Ushcjfjeja fields
    The app keeps logging me out! Please fix this
  • The best!

    By Swim surfer
    This app has saved me out of state and out of the country! I use it all the time!
  • Best Food EVER!!!!

    By RoseDambrosia
    Just finished my first meal here with DH. We absolutely LOVE this amazing place with incredible food. Definitely coming back - probably for dinner tonight.
  • Go Vegan!

    By Minxyminx
    So helpful in finding all the places that find vegan options no matter where I go. Has real people reviews and photos so you know it’s legit and know what’s good and what’s not. This app has been a lifesaver
  • Efficient

    By MallieMoser17
    It’s my go-to for finding new vegan spots! If you’re vegan, you need this bad boy💓
  • Overall

    By Kipina21
    What an amazing app!
  • Nice!

    By hiduptempe
    Great apps for vegan people
  • Lame

    By Go9111
    I can get more information thru google and the city name. Lots of missing data in app
  • Ehh

    By blind eyes 79
    Not very accessibility friendly.
  • Saved Our Lives (And Stomachs)

    By motorcityfunk
    Used app on our 10 day trip to Japan. Guided us to some great spots - an Indian restaurant on the 8th floor in Shibuya, a vegan cafe with riverfront seating in Kyoto, a burrito joint with veggie options deep in Osaka subway station, and even the rare vegan ramen spot (an experience we thought we’d miss out on). Well worth for vegan/vegetarian travelers!
  • The largest DB of veg options

    By shwaydogg
    I made meatlessly.org and scoured the internet to find any worthy competitors to Happy Cow and there were none!
  • So glad I finally got this app!

    By Mreeble
    For the longest time, I’d search Yelp reviews for the word “vegan”, which was time consuming and not all that effective. This is so much better!! I used it on my last trip and it made finding vegan food a breeze. Would definitely recommend!!
  • Needs a map

    By ohlauren1
    I wish you could open up a map. I’m in NYC and am finding it challenging to look for results on the other side of town.
  • Great food finder

    By Evaristo Valle
    As a vegan, this app is a great tool in locating delicious and excitingly new cuisines. It helps expand the various plant based options that many restaurants, while not being vegan establishment.
  • Not a necessity

    By pthalia75
    Does a fairly good at listing vegan restaurants. But fails to list chain restaurants. The app comes in handy, don’t get me wrong, but it’s not worth $4. You can just go on their website in safari and use it for free. Basically a watered down more expensive Yelp.
  • What would I do without my HappyCow

    By epn305
    This app is amazing to find local vegan restaurants or vegan options but is a life saver when you travel abroad. I can’t live without it. Thanks!
  • Could be better

    By Mega Def(the real one)
    I live in a large metropolitan area, and I am never pleased with the finding when I jump on happy cow. I get way more out of simply hopping on google and typing ‘vegan food near me’ Save your money!
  • Much better than website!

    By YancerMc
    This was super helpful for my road trip through ten states in the Western US. My only complaint is that you can’t rate an omni restaurant 5 stars, no matter how good their vegan options are or how many they have! Seems a little manipulative and misleading.
  • Missing features

    By blukas
    It’s nice to get a social side of plant-forward diets, and the following for the app has really made it a great resource for finding those places. * Update based on developer’s second response: I appreciate your time to explain the intention behind the app. I think that others could benefit by understanding that you want to highlight places that are *purposely* providing plant-based options. I recommend you put that in the app’s description. As it stands, it seems like you’re trying to advertise your service as a yelp-for-vegans; which is why I was confused.
  • I love the app

    By 100%vegan
    I’ve used this app in a lot of counties and been really happy. From a small vegan taco cart in Mexico City to a great vegan place in Denver. You can’t go wrong with the help of this app. Easy to search ahead of time and create a ‘trip’, so when you get to your destination you already have your food mapped out.
  • Best resource for finding veg-friendly restaurants

    By xmrfigx
    Someone recommended this to me when I first went vegan a few years back. It had been less than a month and I was just starting to feel that I wouldn’t be able to do it because I missed eating out with the family. We met this guy in front of the one vegan restaurant I managed to find by just trying to Google a bunch of stuff and when I told him what I went through, he told me about the app and I have been an avid user since! I have used it to plan trips because you can save an itinerary of places you want to visit beforehand and it’s really easy to add restaurants that you may find on your own. If you use the app I encourage you to leave reviews and add restaurants because that’s how the information grows. It is definitely worth the download! *As of Aug 2018, the app has been redesigned and looks great! The ability to filter by restaurant type directly from the main page is a welcome new addition!
  • Loving the update!

    By Imuser364
    Thanks for making it easy to find good vegan food. It’s incredibly difficult without this app. Thanks devs!
  • It’s the Best!

    By Makeup gal
    I went vegan 3 years ago and Happy Cow has been with me almost from the very beginning. I’ve used it in several foreign country visits and throughout France. I love this app. No matter where I am it lets me know where I can find something for me to eat...and places for me and my meat-eating husband to dine together while traveling or running errands in unfamiliar areas. Definitely recommend to vegans or just health conscious people.
