Vegan Options at Cheddar’s (Updated 2023)

Vegan Options at Cheddar's

The vegan options at Cheddar’s Scratch Kitchen isn’t the best, but there are at least a few menu items that you can put together to make a meal (kind of).

Cheddar’s is a scratch kitchen style restaurant with almost 200 locations across 28 states. If you’re not familiar with Cheddar’s, Cracker Barrel is probably the closest equivalent.

If you find yourself at one, we’re guessing you must be with family or friends, cause this is going to be a salad and/or sides type of a situation. Here’s to making the best out of a less-than-ideal situation!

Are Cheddar’s Onion Rings Vegan?

Honestly, this question stumped us for a moment because we couldn’t even find Onion Rings on Cheddar’s menu. Like, at all. So, maybe they used to have Onion Rings and they no longer carry them?

Regardless, they were not included on the vegan friendly menu items we received from Cheddar’s so we’re going to say no.

Are Cheddar’s Croissants Vegan?

No. Cheddar’s croissants are not vegan. They contain both butter and honey.
