Moe's Southwest Grill Supports Meatless Mondays With Vegetarian and Flexitarian Meal Options

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwire - February 3, 2011) - In the spirit of Oprah announcing this week that Monday's at Harpo Productions are now meatless, Moe's Southwest Grill doesn't want the rest of us to feel left out! The fun and fast-casual restaurant supports Meatless Monday with its commitment to flexible, healthier menu options. 

The latest studies show that at least 7.3 million Americans are vegetarians and another 22.8 million are part-time vegetarians who like to change it up. At Moe's, we don't ask. Instead we offer it all, so all diets are equally satisfied. 

For vegetarians, the days of eating nothing more than rice and lettuce are over. Veg-heads are at home at Moe's with six meatless options right off the menu, including delicious grilled marinated organic tofu and the popular "Art Vandalay" vegetarian burrito. If you want to stand out from the crowd, order up your own unique meatless creations with over 20 fresh vegetarian ingredients and toppings, like homemade guacamole, black beans and pico de gallo. Even the cheese and sour cream are free of gelatin and animal rennet, and all meats and veggies are cooked on separate grills.

To our flexitarian friends -- you know who you are: the part-time veg-head who won't commit and prefers to dabble in both camps, Mondays at Moe's are for you. In addition to Meatless Mondays, rest easy knowing that you could choose chicken that is all-natural, cage and hormone-free; steak that is 100 percent sirloin, grass-fed with no added hormones; and the slow-cooked pulled pork which is grain-fed, hormone and steroid free. No microwaves, MSG, trans fat or preservatives here.
