Veggie Burgers – Baltimore area
My husband and I haven't eaten red meat for about 15 years, but we still love getting a veggie burger with lots of good toppings. The bigger the list of toppings (including cheese), the happier I am.
We love the Black Bean burger at Zodiac, the little veggie wimpies at Rocket to Venus and even (ever so occasionally) the Boca burgers at Johnny Rockets. Gertrude's does a nice black bean burger although the patty isn't homemade.
Any suggestions for other places?
I am pretty fond of the Weed Burger at Paper Moon diner. Always moist on the inside, never dried out. It has avocado, sprouts, lettuce (and tomato, I think) and you can get cheese. I would guess they'd add other toppings.
Friends on Aliceanna also does a nice set of veggie sliders.

I was raised vegetarian, but I love veggie burgers.
I can't believe I'm recommending a chain, but I think Red Robin serves up 20 or so different burgers, any of which you can get with either a Gardenburger veggie pattie or a Boca pattie (which I think is the flame-grilled one so it's more "burger"-like).
I do NOT like the veggie burger at Mother's.
re: scarlet starlet
OK glad you went first Scarlet- I was watching this thread and 1st VB not mentioned in the orgional post was the one at Red Robin. It's tasty esp. if you can avoid the nights when there is actually someone walking around in a robin costume.
The black Bean Burger at Dougherty's is tasty and now that it is smoke free it's even better.
Hi ktracy - great topic! My favorite veggie burgers are those that are made fresh and offer a respite from the basic Morningstar or Boca burger served in restaurants. It really irks me that most restaurants serve pre-made, unintelligent versions we can buy in the grocery store.
Here are my faves in Bmore:
1) The lentil burger at Dogwoods in Hampden. The first time I went there for lunch, the restraurant was out of it, and I was totally bummed. Nonetheless, I went back two weekends ago and finally got to try it. Let's just say...DELICIOUS! One drawback? It's messy so it's tough to eat with hands.
2) Donna's veggie burger: unexpectedly fresh and delicious. Plus, the roll its served on and the roasted potatoes are nice additions.
Go try 'em and report back. I'd love to hear your opinion!
