You might not expect for the vegan options to be great at a place known for deep frying fish and chicken and, well, you’d be right. There are a couple vegetable choices that are vegan and that’s about it. Even the fries contain milk which makes no sense, but they do. The batter is vegan, so the little crumbles that I remember would be vegan if not for the fact that the batter crunchies can end up with pieces of chicken or fish in them.
