Went here with a group of 6 on business travel, the food was good. Our server made some recommendations since we had no idea what was good. The green chili mac and cheese was great, tons of sausage in it.

This is a little gem tucked into a bit of a sketchy location tucked into a small strip mall in Aurora. Prices are just a bit high, but totally worth it. Everything was exceptionally good, fresh. more like fine dining than strip mall by far....More

We chose the Best Fork due it's proximity to our lodging and so glad we did. My salmon was absolutely divine --- perfectly moist and flavorful. The sides were also delicious. Great place to eat in not the best location.

I don't think there is anything specifically vegan on their menu. My husband is vegetarian, and he had the spicy pecan and gorgonzola salad. You could get that and leave off the gorgonzola. You might call them and ask... More
