The vegan options at Applebee’s will not have you ‘eatin’ good in the neighborhood’. At least not yet. The options are slim and not anything most vegans are going to get too excited about. However, we are excited that some New York Applebee’s locations are now serving the Impossible Burger. Let’s hope that that expands to Applebee’s locations nationwide. Until then, here are the vegan options at Applebee’s:
