Vegan bean burritos are more popular than ever! According to leading U.S. food-delivery service Grubhub, the bean burrito was the most requested item of 2018. Orders for this vegan-friendly Mexican food staple reportedly increased by a whopping 276 percent last year. As more people across the country are going vegan, restaurant chains are rising to meet the demand by offering tempting burritos that are totally free of meat, cheese, sour cream, and all other cruel and unsustainable animal-derived ingredients. If you’re looking to find bean burritos and other Mexican-inspired vegan options at chain restaurants near you, you’ve come to the right place.
