Vegan Options at Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen (Updated 2023)

Popeye's Vegan Options

The vegan options at Popeyes were very bare before but they are non-existent now. 

Vegan Options at Popeyes

All of the items we used to have as vegan-friendly are no longer on Popeyes menu. This means there is currently nothing vegan-friendly here. 

And before you ask about the fries… ALL of Popeyes’ fried menu items are fried in cow fat (beef tallow).

For further information, the Red Beans & Rice and Cajun Rice have animal in them.

Popeye’s Vegan FAQ

Popeye's Louisiana Kitchen

Are Popeye’s French fries vegan?

Popeyes fries everything in beef tallow including the Cajun Fries. So no, we do not consider their fries (or their hash browns) to be vegan.

Does Popeye’s Red Beans and Rice Have Pork In It?

Yes. Popeye’s red beans and rice are cooked with pork. Obviously, this makes them not vegan.

Are Popeye’s Biscuits Vegan?

The Biscuits at Popeye’s contain milk, so unfortunately no, they are not vegan. If you’re looking for a bread option, try the baguette – they are vegan.
