Vegan Options at Hot Head Burritos (Updated 2023)

Hot Head Burritos Logo

The vegan options at Hot Head Burritos are pretty good. They are a ‘build your own burrito’ fast casual chain similar to a Chipotle or Qdoba.

However, we were hoping for something similar to a Sofritas or Impossible Meat, but instead ordering will be limited to a more veggie-style selection. You can still make yourself a burrito or bowl filled with two choices of rice and beans, veggies and a good selection of salsas and sauces.

Here’s what you can order vegan at Hot Head Burritos:
