Vegan Options at Bob Evans (Updated 2023)

Vegan Options at Bob Evans

Not a lot of vegan options to speak of at Bob Evans. Some bread options, a few sides (some of which are fried. Bob Evans uses shared fryers) or putting together your own salad are about the full range of what you can order.

We would recommend other locations with better vegan options over Bob Evans, but if you are at a Bob Evans, here is everything you can currently order:

Our Picks

Ryan’s Pick: I haven’t been to a Bob Evans in years – long before I went vegan. I honestly can’t see myself going out of my way to go to a Bob Evans given the current vegan options, but if I do eat at a Bob Evans, I’ll update my picks here.

Jen’s Pick: I’ve been to Bob Evan’s only once since being vegan and I got the hashbrowns and fruit. It was fine–I wasn’t expecting much.
