UPDATE: A commenter below reported that she determined their soups are made from chicken stock. Because of this, and the general opinion below, this has been moved to the “bad restaurants” list.
The other night, Melissa was really wanting Chinese takeout; specifically “Vegetable Fried Rice”. Through a somewhat random decision, I decided to get takeout from Great Wall over on the west side of town (by EZ Pawn).
We ordered a quart of Vegetable Friced Rice, an order of “Crab cheese angles*”, and a pint of Vegetable Lo Mein.
I don’t have the menu handy at the moment, but we’ll put up the vegetarian run-down up here soon. There was a fair selection of vegetarian items. I imagine that if you wanted to make a substitution, and it was simple enough that the language barrier wasn’t a problem, you could probably do it. (I’ve had other restaurants substitute tofu for chicken on a couple items before.)
I would not recommend this restaurant (for takeout).
Last night, Melissa and I dined at Galo’s Italian Grill, over on Garwood Drive (East side of town). We’ve eaten there several times before; The food is usually terrific and it has a neat atmosphere.

Most of their offerings are meat-oriented, but they do have a few items that are meatless (and tasty!), I’ll list them all at the bottom, for reference.
We had the Mozzarella Fritti (fried cheese) for our appetizer (antipasta!) and I chose the Gnocchi in Alfredo, while Melissa chose the Eggplant Parmesan with a side of “Galo’s Chopped Salad”.
From the perspective of an herbivore, the experience was pleasant. There were a good variety of menu items to choose from so we didn’t feel limited to just ordering side items. While we didn’t need to ask for any substitutions, I felt comfortable enough with the experience that if I had a reasonable request for something to be left off or substituted, they would probably accommodate me easily.
I would recommend this restaurant.
