Johnny Rockets Vegan FAQ

Is Johnny Rockets black bean burger vegan?

Yes! The Gardein Black Bean Burger is vegan and, even better, can be ordered ‘as-is’ from the menu. The burger comes with lettuce and tomato on a whole wheat bun.

Are Johnny Rockets fries vegan?

The fries, tots and sweet potato fries are vegan but may share a fryer with meat products.

Is Johnny Rockets Streamliner vegan?

So, here’s the deal. Based on what we’ve learned, the Streamliner was a veggie Boca burger that was in fact vegan straight off the menu. Currently on Johnny Rockets website there is no mention of the Streamliner burger so we’re not sure whether the Gardein Black Bean Burger replaced the Streamliner or if it’s still being offered or not.

We’ve reached out to Johnny Rockets for clarification and we’ll update here once we get more information.
