Tried Foodswings after wanting to make the trip for ages. Very happy that I did in spite of some of the reviews. The person behind the counter took my order with a smile and promptly brought my order of out to me. The food was so good and really hit the spot on a cold and rainy day in NYC. All I can say it "yum, yum, yum" and thank-you!!

Firstly, the place looks like it has never been cleaned, loud heavy metal music, and smells like an ashtray. Secondly, the cashier is extremely rude and looks like a kat-v-d wannabe. She gets our order wrong and just ignores you. The cooks look like biker bums and probably have little experience cooking. The food is greasy and thrown on 5 cent paper plates. Everything looks like a mess, you barely want to eat it. Lets not get started on the bathroom, no comment. To top it all off, you pay cash and I mean alot of cash! Not worth a cent and never coming back.

What's all the fuss about? "There are no veggies!" "It's for new vegan converts!" Well, true! Observant of you! It's slogan is "VEGAN FAST FOOD"... what's the mystery?! Everything I've had here is excellent. Sloppy & greasy just like it's ADVERTISED to be, or else they wouldn't call it "fast food"! The delivery guy is impolite. WHen I tip him, never a thank you, & he rides off almost even before the bag is in my grasp. Hey, less tips for him, more $ for me! I only seem to deal with Remy when I go & she is just sweet as pie!

I'm not vegan or even a vegetarian, but I love this place. The food is delicious and prices are fair. I never tried getting takeout from them, but the service I received in the restaurant was excellent. The girl behind the cash register was very friendly and made small talk. To address previous reviews: there IS a bathroom there. And the nutritional value question... well, it's fast food. I don't know how much nutritional value you can expect. But why does being vegan have to mean that you're eating 100% healthy all the time? It can simply be about caring for animal rights or whatever other reasons you choose to do it for. I don't think you need to be vegan to enjoy this place though.

I started taking my vegetarian kids here several years ago and they fell in love with the "buffalo wings". Having NEVER eaten any chicken or wings ever, hard to say in comparison, but we all crave them. We live in a different part of Brooklyn but go there as often as we can and they stop by after skateboarding in McCarren. Please never close. A little fried food never killed anyone(I think?).

Foodswings is delicious vegan fast food! I think some of the reviews have been harsh (and I don't fit into the "hipster from Long Island with tattoos who decided to become vegan a few months ago" category). It is definitely not healthy food, but if you are looking for vegan fast food- it is great. It is fun to take both vegans and non-vegans alike because people generally can't believe vegans can eat this type of food! It is what it is- and it is good for a junk food fix!

I should have listen to the other review because I too have had many problems with this place and the 'tude that the delivery guy has. Hire a delivery guy that wants to work!
