    Went to Denny’s today after checking this.

    The one I went to, I ended up with bacon in a dish that wasn’t even suppose to come with bacon. I ordered without eggs and there was egg shell in it. I specified politely about no eggs/no dairy, kinda figured meat was clearly off the menu as well since it was labeled “vegetable skillet”. -_-

    This is the third time within the last 12 months that meat or some sort of animal derived “product” has gotten into my supposed vegetarian food, before any alterations. It’s not like I’m rude about it. I guess I just have REALLY crappy luck.

    Also don’t trust Del taco. Their “vegetarian” burrito has shredded chicken in it.(not sure if del taco is in other parts or just Oregon)

    I think PETA should not support any of these food chain and their new “Vegetarian” products, because that is a welfare attitude and even the really bad one. what want you to do is VEGANISM education=true animal rights, which means that complete BAN of animal-use. To support these awful fast food chain that does the most horrifying animal exploration is not helping actual animal’s suffering. Please wake up! Go Vegan

  • TheFoodyGuy says:

    Although I am neither vegan or vegetarian I am a passionate foodie and feel dismayed at the amount of independent and local food/beverage businesses loosing out to chains. If we do not do something soon my fear is that for anyone who enjoys “food” our future will be chains, chains and again more chains. The “locals” are more likely to support local producers, employ local people and keep profits within the community unlike the chains where they out source, move staff about and profits go to head office.

    There’s a more comprehensive guide on my site, Vegan Eating Out, for those who are interested.

  • Barbara says:

    Anyone that eats restaurant food of any kind is running the risk of getting some meat product in their food. The only way to be certain about what we are consuming is to shop for and prepare food at home. I have worked in restaurants (like many others) we know what takes place behind the kitchen doors.

  • GoneVegan says:

    Moe’s has several dishes that are absolutely delishious! The Tofu rice bowl was so wonderful that I have started making it at home for my kids! Just leave off the cheese and you will have a filling lunch that will have you rushing back again and again!

  • Dee Christian says:

    Woah!! I did not know there were this many fastfood places serving vegan stuff! I was getting tired of just eating a salad…

  • Brenda says:

    Thanks, a great help. have recently become vegan after 20+ years of being vege and haven’t eaten out much yet.

  • okilloran says:

    “Mexican pizzas are vegan when you ask the cashier to hold the meat, cheese, and sour cream.” I don’t know if this has changed, but at one time Taco Bell’s “veggie quesadilla” used a sauce that had some kind of meat in it – we didn’t know about it for a long time, and were happily munching away until the day my husband ordered the “vegetarian quesadilla.” They said, we don’t have a vegetarian quesadilla, it’s a “veggie” quesadilla, but the sauce has meat in it! We were appalled and I wrote a letter to the company. Can you verify that the Mexican pizza is, indeed, vegan???

  • Liz says:

    To answer montauk4us:
    I’m from a French part of Canada and it is indeed very frustrating with French food since it’s heavy on the meat and dairy. Cheese cheese cheese and lots of butter and cream in all their foods. But they usually do grilled veggies well (again, ask them to hold the butter), some offer their own take on Bruschetta (hold the cheese they’ll want to add to it) and some will also offer pasta. Not great options but at least you won’t be stuck with salad… which they also love to put eggs and cheese all over anyway. You could also do what I do, and that’s order fruit and half a bottle a red wine and call it night! (they’re French.. no one will balk at that option!) :)

  • Jennifer says:

    So are most sandwich buns egg free?

  • 4mula1 says:

    also go to walmart, meijer, kroger, and STOCK UP on vegan burgers. tofu dogs, brats, and deserts.. MMMmmm tasty…

  • montauk4us says:

    It is frustrating to find restaurants that have at least one vegan option other than a salad. Especially in French restaurants. The meat dishes they serve are disgusting and the pate makes me upset just seeing it, but I was forced to go there with an out of town guest. Are there any vegan options when eatting French?

  • Karly says:

    Great article! However i have a few extra to add for canadian readers!

    ~ A&W has the “swiss veggie deluxe” which if ordered with out the mayo and chesse is vegan. It’s also loaded with veggies and is quite tasty and filling!

    ~ Tim hortons has a “garden veggie sub”, which isn’t on the menu but most of them have it if you ask. With this sub you can add whichever veggies you please. It is also very tasty!

  • Janna says:

  • Selene says:

    If you go to the McDonalds website and look at the menu’s for other countries that are a majority vegetarians such as India you will see that they have vegetarian options. ( So the article is correct.

  • Photoj7 says:

    While it is admirable to point people in the direction of vegan and vegetarian choices in dining, you have to remember that many of the fast food establishments are serving up GMOs and other pesticide laden fare. Subway bread contains plastic polymer (azodicarbonamide)– most fast food buns/breads also contain the same substance. Food establishments in general are trying to make the most money with the cheapest ingredients and the cheapest labor, so don’t count on any of them to have your best interests at heart. Do your research and prepare your own meals. Even when you’re out on the road, a freakin’ homemade peanut butter sandwich is better for you any day of the week.

  • Carmi says:

    vegetarians too and they don’t have it. I’ve wrote them letters so they can include them in their menu but it’s imposible! what else can I do?? I would love that people like us and even meat eaters could have the option of have a Cruelty Free option!

    For those of you who are Disneyland fans, there is a New Orleans-esque restaurant that has a long vegan and gluten-free menu. Their vegan pasta is amaaaazing.

  • itzLaurenR says:

    On a recent visit to Hard Rock (New Orleans), I inquired about the vegan-ness of the veggie leggie burger, and behold: the ingredient listing, kindly brought out to me on the packaging, proved to be vegan-licious!

  • Elizabeth says:

    Fast food is nasty and most of it literally makes me feel sick. And I don’t think Burger King selling veggie burgers is really going to help people want to eat veggie burgers versus real burgers because they use Morningstar, and I love most of Morningstar’s food, but their veggie burgers are gross. I have to drown them in ketchup if I eat them so I can’t taste the burger. Vegetarian/Vegan food tastes way better and is healthier if you just make it yourself. I make homemade veggie burgers with beans, flour, vegetable stock, garlic powder, onion powder, and oregano and they taste just like a real home-cooked hamburger. Plus, do you really trust fast food employees to tell you the truth, or go through the trouble of asking a manager if they don’t know the truth about what’s in the food you’re ordering??? I don’t. I used to work at Wendy’s when I was a teenager and I didn’t care about the restaurant or the customers. I was just there to get money. And aren’t we supposed to be boycotting “McCruelty?” I will NOT be eating at any of these restaurants and will continue to make my own healthy and tasty meat substitutes.

  • goobygirl says:

    @ Emily – yes a piece of meat in my food will make me and my H sick. I have forgotten to tell a server to ask the cook to clean the grill before making hash browns for me and the egg made me visit the bathroom several times. This has happened in “accidental” cross contamination to my hubby too who has been vegetarian/vegan for 30+ years. Seems like people who eat meat find non meat eaters sanctimonious when I think a lot of it is just guilt and misplaced anxiety about their actions. Just my opinion.

  • birdlady1 says:

    Wendy’s french fries are not vegan. They use the same oil for the carcasses. I also wish Subway’s was not on the list, since they recently endorsed Michael Vick, the dog killer.

  • Noah says:

    At Chilli’s you can also get any ‘burger’ on a black bean patty, and its DELICIOUS!

  • MK says:

    I just discovered Flat Top grill, a make your own stir fry place. Not only do they have tons of fresh veggies, brown rice and tofu, they also have seitan, quorn, and meatless chicken as well as some others that I can’t think of. If you are a veg or vegan or have allergies, they will cook it in a different wok. It’s delish and has tons of options for everyone!

  • Ashley says:

    McDonalds needs to try harder. I had one of their veggie burgers a while ago and it was so nasty, which is probaly why they stopped selling them. They could replace the meat in their mcnuggets and no one would taste the difference because there are some really good chicken substitutes out there and they would be covered in the usual breading. It would be slightly less unhealthy and they wouldn’t be hurting any chickens which would be great.

  • Thom Parrott says:

    Virtually all breads and pizza crusts and most fake meats including veggie burgers contain large amounts of gluten, a common allergen. Commercial potatoes are among the most chemically polluted foods as are commercial apples. Main stream food chains use the cheapest ingredients so their fruits and vegetables will be high in pesticides and other toxic chemicals. Most restaurants and their servers think people with dietary preferences and allergies are just neurotic and annoying and they will lie about ingredients to get us to spend our money with them. While eating relatively as healthy as possible at junk food places may move them to improve their menus, most college towns have health food stores and restaurants near the colleges and we should make an effort to increase their market share. Indian food is largely or completely vegetarian. Watch a few episodes of “Kitchen Nightmares” and you’ll find yourself highly motivated to personally prepare all the food you eat. Food prep at home should actually take no more time than waiting for food in a restaurant and can be a group activity and a lot of fun.

  • autumncvasquez says:

    Some of these options are vegetarian but not vegan. For instance, I know that the veggie patties @ Subway contain eggs, and also whey protein. They use egg white as an adherent. I’m sure the veggie patties @ BK or McD’s are similar.

  • Elizabeth says:

    I do not like veggie burgers, I am not completely vegan however I would like to move that way. I have not found a veggie burger that taste good at all, Most of these restrauntes have veggie burgers,,, what else is there. Any fast food that has more of a selection??

  • AkiraMakena says:

    I live in a small town down south where all the meat and dairy industries are – So it’s very difficult to find food around here without animal products. When I eat outside of my home, I usually go to Taco Bell. A vegan (and so yummy) choice I got was a Crunchwrap Supreme. Of course, this comes with non-vegan fixings. Just ask for NO beef, NO sour cream, and NO nacho cheese. To make it even better, I add beans, guac, and potatoes. It’s my savior!

  • Mary says:

    The worry about cross-contamination is not over the top if there is a severe dairy allergy involved, as there is with my daughter. I make almost everything from scratch at home, but she feels excluded when friends have things from restaurants. I research and question employees and if I feel it is safe I will let my daughter have an occasional meal from a restaurant (with Epi-Pen, Jr. ready, of course, just in case). I am a lifelong vegetarian and sometimes vegan and I will sometimes eat from places in this list.

  • Veg-girl says:

    I find the worry about small amounts of meat/dairy contamination when eating fast food to be a bit over the top. We vegans all have to remember that when it comes to the fast food industry we are “outsiders” attempting to eat in the world of meat. So expecting perfection (perfectly clean knives, no contamination, no hidden egg or dairy) within a world of still-ghastly food choices is a bit misplaced. Even vegan fast food simply is not healthy even if the meat/dairy is eliminated. Here’s an example: Quiznos vegetarian sub (ordered without cheese) still contains over 40 grams of fat. Panera Bread’s Mediteranean sandwich sans feta cheese still contains 11 grams of fat. . .probably from the oil used in the hummus that is so thin it drips out of the sandwich. Hidden fat, oil, sugar in vegan food does nothing for your health. So while we can argue in this discussion about the minutae of how the food is prepared in terms of whether it touches meat or not, let’s not forget that these are still low conscience industries trying to serve the cheapest food possible. Their concern for health is simply not existant. They simply do not care – about your health, about the animals, about the environment – period. I would not expect these industries to cater to us – they already have their customers and they’re the meat, dairy, fat, and sugar eaters . . .we are not their worry or concern.

  • Emily says:

    This nonsense about “cross-contamination” is one of the major reasons many carnivores hate vegetarians: There’s a perception that they’re all sanctimonious, high-maintenance prima donnas who are impossible to please. If your goal is to reduce animal cruelty, then ordering things without meat makes sense. It does not, however, make any sense at all to become apoplectic over the possibility that a particle of meat might have fallen off some carnivore’s sandwich and landed on yours. You have not helped an animal — or your cause — with your sanctimony. The carnivore whose burger touched yours is not going to become vegan to avoid offending you. He’s just going to think vegetarians are obnoxious lunatics, which ultimately hurts your cause far more than rejecting that particle of meat (which would have gone into the grease tray if it hadn’t accidentally stuck to your sandwich — meaning your inadvertent meat consumption or avoidance thereof had zero impact on the number of animals killed) helps it. A little pragmatism could save thousands of lives.

  • AleciaBangBang says:

    Obviously I’d like to avoid fast food but for some people it’s a necessary evil. I’m a flight attendant and while I could in theory pack enough food to get me through a 4-day trip (and have done so), that’s not realistic for me for every trip. To respond to Catlover’s comment below: I personally did not become vegan to avoid junky food, I did it because I didn’t want to eat animal flesh/secretions. Even if I go to a fast food place where the food might have been cooked on the same grill as meat because there aren’t other options available, I’m still doing the best I can given my situation (short of skipping a meal entirely that is). Also, like PETA said, I’m showing the world that I can have a “normal” life as a vegan, and sit down to eat with the rest of my crew instead of microwaving something I brought with me. That, to me, is priceless… if you think it’s lazy that’s too bad.

  • Tessa says:

    McDonald’s fries are also coated with a milk substance to help them brown, I found this out when my daughter had an allergic reaction to them. We do not do “fast food”. One place they left off this list is McAllister’s they are famous for their Baked Potatoes and have several veggie sandwich and pizza options…….on there pizza’s they are all veggie, you have to pay extra for meat…..they also have a good, although not spicy enough for my taste, Veggie Chili…..I just add some hot sauce and am good!

  • Catlover says:

    how about not eating burgers!!!. People, the whole idea of veganism is to keep “fast crapy food ” away from our diet. There is always a risk to have our food cook in the same grill contaminated with meat drippings or getting non vegan mayo or bread. I know there aren’t a lot of options for us, but if we are not lazy and opt for the easy and fast method we end up having a meal mix with non vegan products.

  • joyce says:

    McDonalds fries are NOT vegetarian OR vegan… they admit that at the plants (prior to shipment to each store), a bit of beef flavoring is added. Also, BK has admitted to adding animal flavoring as well to their fries (I think theirs is chicken). But either way, many restaurants (sit-down AND fastfood) tend to fry things in the same large vat fryers, which means cross contamination between fried veggies (fries, mushrooms, etc) and meat (bacon, chicken tenders, etc.)
