Vegan Options at Bojangles’ (Updated 2023)

Vegan at Bojangles

We try to do our best here at VeggL to not be negative, but the vegan options at Bojangles’ are very, very limited.  I’m sure that’s not surprising to most vegans.

I’m guessing if you’re on this page then you’ve found yourself out with family and friends at a Bojangles’ and you’re hurriedly searching for anything you can eat.

It’s either going to be a salad or a couple sides. The oil that is used for frying is a combo of canola oil and beef fat which even eliminates French fries. Here they are, the vegan options at Bojangles:

Vegan Options at Bojangles’

Vegan Sides

  • Grits (Breakfast)
  • Cajun Pinto Beans
  • Green Beans
  • Garden Salad with Fat Free Italian Dressing. Advise NO cheese or croutons.
  • Top the Garden Salad with the Italian Dressing & Cajun Pinto Beans. Make it a meal!

Dipping Sauces

  • BBQ Sauce

Salad Dressing

  • Ken’s Fat Free Italian Dressing

Do NOT eat anything fried! Their oil is a combo of canola oil & beef fat.

Note: 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.
