Vegan Options at Longhorn Steakhouse (Updated 2024)

Vegan Options at Longhorn Steakhouse

If you think Longhorn Steakhouse is not going to be home to a plethora of vegan options, you would be right.

Most vegans are not going out of their way to visit a Longhorn, but many of us have found ourselves at a steakhouse with family or friends. That means we have done our best to put together a guide for you to eat here.

There are a few items you can ask additional questions about at your location but your safest vegan-friendly menu items are going to be very slim.

Be prepared to enjoy the company you are with rather than the food. And sometimes, that is the best you can do.

Vegan Options at Longhorn Steakhouse

Vegetables and Sides

  • Seasoned French Fries*
  • Seasoned Rice

–> We have been made aware that the Baked Potatoes and Sweet Potatoes are brushed with bacon grease before going in the oven and the Freshly Baked Bread is brushed with butter before baking. We suggest asking your server for more information when visiting. The bread does NOT have dairy checked on the allergen guide so we’re thinking this is no longer the case.

We also want to make a special note on two items vegetable items. According to Longhorn’s Allergen GuideOpens in a new tab., the Fresh Steamed Broccoli and the Fresh Steamed Asparagus contain dairy. You will need to ask if either one can be ordered with NO dairy.


  • Mixed Green Salad. Order with NO cheese or croutons. Not one of the dressings are vegan though.

Children’s Menu

  • Fresh Fruit – Oranges
  • Seasoned French Fries*

* 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.

Longhorn’s Allergen Guide states:

Please be sure to tell your server that you have an allergy or intolerance. This will allow us to alert the kitchen of your special needs. Our restaurant team members will follow specific procedures to help prevent cross-contact.
