Vegan Options at Moe’s Southwest Grill (Updated 2023)

Vegan Options at Moe's

As a create-your-own burrito place, Moe’s has many different combinations of vegan options.

Start with a burrito, bowl, salad, nachos or tacos, then add whatever fillings you want as you go along. The rice, black beans and all the veggies are vegan. They also offer tofu as well.

You can order from ready-made selections off the menu or just ‘choose as you go’ down the line. We try to give you ideas for both below.

If you haven’t been to Moe’s in a while you’ll notice that they’ve removed some of the ready-made selections and are now basically Homewrecker or Create-Your-Own. It honestly makes more sense and is less confusing.

Vegan Options at Moe’s

If you are short on time, Moe’s has a couple of menu items that can be modified to be made vegan… or you can choose to create your own. If you prefer to create your own, we have all of their vegan ingredients listed below the picture. If not, read on here:

We have contacted Moe’s to ask if any of the following sauces are vegan: Moe’s sauce, Kickin’ Cayenne sauce and Poblano Crema. The last one is most likely not but we suggest asking about these when ordering until we hear back and update our guide. 

Meal Kit

Did you know Moe’s offers Meal Kits? There are three of them–taco, fajita and nacho. The one that offers tofu as a protein option on their online ordering is their Fajita Kit which feeds 4-6 people.

  • Fajita Meal Kit. Choose tofu for your two proteins. Order with NO cheese, sour cream or queso … comes with 12 soft flour tortillas, your choice of 2 proteins, grilled peppers and onions, lettuce, beans, rice, pico de gallo, handcrafted guac, tortilla chips and salsa.

* 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.

Our Picks

Ryan’s Pick: I always go with the Art Vandalay and add in grilled onions and diced jalapenos. Don’t forget about the chips and salsa from the salsa bar as well. I always end up with about 4 or 5 cups of salsa.

Jen’s Pick: I usually order a bowl, rice, black beans, lettuce, salsa, chopped cucumbers and bell peppers.
