It’s easy to grab great vegan food while you’re out and about! As more and more people make the compassionate choice to go vegan, chain restaurants across the U.S. are evolving to meet the growing demand for animal-free fare. One chain with vegan options is Johnny Rockets, a diner-style eatery that serves burgers and fries. At select locations, it has even added another animal-free burger, dairy-free cheese, and cashew– and oat–based vanilla, strawberry, and chocolate milkshakes topped with coconut whipped cream. We hope Johnny Rockets will expand these options to all locations soon, but until then, we’ve created this handy guide to make ordering vegan there a total breeze.

Check out these vegan Johnny Rockets menu items:

Gardein Black Bean Burger

The chain serves a delicious Gardein patty, topped with lettuce and tomato, on a wheat bun.

Fries, Sweet Potato Fries, and Tots

All these classic side dishes are vegan. Johnny Rockets also offers applesauce as a vegan side dish option for kids.

Garden or Side Salad

To make these items vegan, ask for no cheese and substitute balsamic vinaigrette dressing.

Note: Some overseas Johnny Rockets locations also offer an “accidentally veganapple pie. Order one for dessert!

Still hungry? We’ve assessed the vegan offerings of burger chains and restaurants across the U.S., grading each one based on the availability of vegan options on the menu. Check it out:
