5. Back to Edenz
3348 Vineville Ave.
This completely vegetarian restaurant made all vegetarians in Macon rejoice collectively! Served buffet style, and priced by the pound, this restaurant is for anyone interested in trying “meatless” meat. Their proprietary family recipe for “meatloaf” is simply out-of-this-world, and make sure to try other southern staples such as “fried chicken” and “sausage” gumbo. Vegetarian food is so much more than just putting vegetables on a plate! If you don't believe that, then let the staff at Back to Edenz prove it to you.
