5 Vegan Fast Food Meals You Never Knew Existed

Usually if you find yourself looking for vegan fast food you will be disappointed. But here are 5 fast food meals that will surprise you!

I hate fast food. How can something be good for you when it is so processed and prepared by people who are generally unhappy and underpaid? I don’t think it can be. But sometimes you find yourself looking for vegan choices. This can happen accidentally when you are traveling or when you have a craving you can’t control. Yes, I occasionally have fast food cravings, I admit it.

Looking for vegan fast food is like looking for ethics in congress. It’s there somewhere but it’s really hard to find. I can tell you that your breakfast options will be nearly impossible. It will depend on what restaurant options you have near you. Finding a vegan fast food meal for lunch is much easier. Allow me to be your guide and share with you 5 vegan fast food options you may not have know existed.

5 Vegan Fast Food Meals

I’m sure there are other options out there at different fast food restaurants. But these 5 choices come from personal experience. If you are interested in more we did an article a couple of months back that detailed 11 fast food recommendations for vegans. It was based more on which places are easier to order vegan options from. This article is about specific vegan fast food meals. You can read the other article here.

1. Pizza Hut Veggie Lovers Pizza This is a simple, straight from the menu vegan meal. Just make sure they don't put cheese on it and you are good to go. I should also mention Dominos also has a veggie pizza and they offer a gluten free crust as well. (I researched the Dominos gluten free crust when they first came out with it and it was vegan. I see now they have added honey to the ingredient list. Since I know a ton of vegans that eat honey I am leaving it in this article)

This is a simple, straight from the menu vegan meal. Just make sure they don’t put cheese or butter on it and you are good to go. I should also mention Domino’s Pizza also has a veggie pizza and they offer a gluten free crust as well. (I researched the Domino’s gluten free crust when they first came out with it and it was vegan. I see now they have added honey to the ingredient list. Since I know a ton of vegans that eat honey I am leaving it in this article. But technically it is not vegan)

This isn’t accurate. Dominos gluten free crust is not vegan and pf chang only has 2 entrees on the menu that is vegan.

Pizza hut used to put broth and fat in their sauces, not sure if they changed that or not.

I don’t know how you vegans feel about Denny’s fries being cooked in the same oil as chicken, but I say no. Only vegan option there for me is a romaine salad.

PF Changs doesn’t really use cheese, it’s moreso the egg you have to make sure about.

I went to PF CHANGS for a family event and the waitress told me that every single plate there has sugar in it (making it non-vegan). We ate white rice and steamed veggies.
Also, the Denny’s burger… Is the bread vegan?

PLEASE TELL ME HOW BUYING FROM MCDONALD’S IS STILL VEGAN??? THEIR WHOLE PROFIT IS ANIMAL ABUSE???

*even if McDonald’s wasn’t mentioned you’re still going to a company where meant/dairy are their main products and profits. No difference. You’re still funding animal cruelty. You might as well buy meat and dairy if you’re eating out at places like these. It’s like going to a Butcher shop but buying veggie patties.
You’re still supporting the butcher

    Tori says

    By that same standard, patronizing any store or person that sells any animal product is a no go. So you can’t visit any grocery stores, restaurants (save for strictly vegan ones) or buy direct from most farmers (who are generally not vegan). Every grocery store I’ve been to also sells meat and/or other animal products, though…huh. Maybe there are some vegan food Co-op places and you’re lucky enough to live nearby, but a whole lot of people aren’t.

I can’t say enough good things about Native Food Cafe!! It’s a no brainer for vegans…entire restaurant is vegan and you order at the counter and the waitstaff brings it out to you so I consider it pretty close to “fast food”. If you have one in your area I highly recommend it!

If you say you are a vegan and eat honey, you are not truly a vegan. Use agave nectar instead. No cruelty involved there.

My favorite fast vegan foods on the road when I tour with my band are organic apples and bananas, you don’t need anything else and you will be satisfied full and still able to poop. I have so much energy from eating this way. We always bring our nutri bullet, pull into the grocery, buy fruit and whip up smoothies as well. Pure energy food.

I get a Mediterranean pita sandwich, no chicken no cheese whenever I go to Potbelly. Potbelly is a chain of “artisan” sandwiches, but I’m not sure how widespread they are– I know they are in Cincinnati and Baltimore. The sandwich comes with hummus, onions, lettuce, artichoke hearts, roasted red peppers, and whatever other veggies you want that they have. Mmmm mmm good!

thanks for this, people often mistake why i went vegan but i didn’t go vegan because of taste of meat, i guess with.some but things like lamb (which is one of the cleaner meats if not the most!) & wild Alaskan salmon is amazing but no i went vegan because all the things that are going on in these industries & lets face it, what the powers that be do to our food, especially animal buy products, now i G.M.O.s are in veggies too but thats a easy fix, & its also kinda spiritual for me as well, if your not part of the hunt & the kill don’t eat it, when you eat these animals that have been basically tortured, your taking in all that negative energy, so there’s a few reasons why i went vegan & its not really just one answers! !!

Except for the fact it’s made on porous surfaces full of animal product. That tortilla they used? Probably got beef and sour cream on it. That lettuce? Yeah it’s got chicken juice in it. And don’t fool yourself, they never change their gloves between your vegan food and that last guys chalupa. This is ridiculous.
