Vegan Options at Arby's

There isn’t very many vegan options to choose from at Arby’s, but I have to admit, I love those curly fries*.

It might not come as a surprise that a fast food spot with the slogan, “we got the meats” isn’t very vegan friendly, but hey, sometimes life happens and you find yourself stuck at an Arby’s and you need to make a decision.

Don’t worry, we got you covered.

Here are the vegan options you can grab at Arby’s – may we suggest the curly fries*?


Vegan Options at Arby’s


Breakfast

  • French Toast Sticks*
  • Potato Cakes*

*Shares a fryer with animal products. 

Salads

  • Chopped Side Salad. Order with NO cheese and choose one of the dressings listed below.

By the time you remove everything, you’d need to remove from the other salads you’re basically left with a side salad.

Sides

Arby's Potato Cakes and Curly Fries
How do you prefer your potatoes fried, cake or curly?
  • Curly Fries*
  • Crinkle Fries*
  • Homestyle Fries* (Regional Item)

*Shares a fryer with animal products. 

Desserts

Arby's Apple and Cherry Turnovers
Arby’s Apple and Cherry Turnovers are one of the most surprising ‘accidentally’ vegan items you can find at any fast food restaurant.
  • Apple Turnover
  • Cherry Turnover

Both Turnovers contain Palm Oil.

Vegan Dressings

  • Light Italian Dressing
  • Balsamic Vinaigrette

Sauces

  • Arby’s Sauce
  • Bronco Berry Sauce
  • Ketchup

*All fried items share the same fryers. As with any restaurant that is not 100% vegan or does not offer a designated cooking space for their vegan options, cross-contamination can occur and fryers/grills may be shared with animal products. You can choose what your level of comfort is with these potential issues.


Arby’s Vegan FAQ


What’s Vegan at Arby’s

You can see above the only items 100% vegan are the Chopped Side Salad (order with NO cheese), pick one of the two dressings listed and the Tree Top Applesauce.

If you do not mind shared fryers with meat products, then you can also get the Potato Cakes, Curly Fries, Homestyle Fries, French Toast Sticks (breakfast) and both turnovers (dessert).

Are Arby’s curly fries vegan?

The fries themselves at Arby’s are vegan. Like most fast food places, the fries may share a fryer with non-vegan food. So it really just depends on how you feel about cross-contamination.

I kind of know that’s what I’m signing up for when I grab fast food, but we want you to be aware of it in case that is a deal-breaker for you.

Is Arby’s Sauce vegan?

Arby’s Sauce lovers of the country can rejoice in the fact it is vegan! I’m a firm believer that Arby’s Sauce is one of the best fast food signature sauces anywhere and I was really pleased to learn that it’s vegan.

Can I eat WFPB (Whole Food Plant Based) at Arby’s?

Two items. You can order the Side Salad with NO cheese and NO dressing or the Tree Top Applesauce.
