Vegan Options at Red Robin (Updated 2021)

Red Robin Vegan Options

You may not think that a place like Red Robin, known for their gourmet burgers, would have many vegan options to choose from. But, you’d be wrong. Red Robin has two different vegan friendly burger patties in their Veggie Patty and the Impossible Burger.

They also embrace customizing any of their burgers however you like. With a variety of buns, sauces and toppings, you have the ability to get pretty creative with your vegan burger order.

Sure, outside of the burgers and steak fries*, their isn’t a lot of other vegan options to choose from. However, if you’re going to Red Robin, isn’t a (vegan) burger why you’re going in the first place?

VeggL Quick Order

Are you in the Red Robin dining room and need to figure out what to order, like NOW!?! Here are the best vegan options at Red Robin that we recommend:

  • Get a Burger and Steak Fries*. Either…
  • The Impossible Gourmet Cheeseburger. Just make sure to order with no mayo, cheese or dill pickle slices. Check out the Vegan Burger Toppings below if you want to add anything else on.
  • The Veggie Burger – The Veggie Burger is an Ancient-Grain and Quinoa veggie patty. Order it with NO Roasted Aioli and Swiss Cheese.
  • Red Robin does have a Vegan Burger on the menu, but if you order the ‘Vegan Burger’, they serve it by default on a Lettuce wrap (they call it Wedgie-Style). So make sure to order it with a bun if that’s what you want.

*Cross-contamination is a concern with the Steak Fries. More info on that a little lower on this post…

Vegan Burger Customizations

You can rearrange and customize basically any burger on the menu. Here is a list of all the ingredients that are vegan-friendly if you decide you want to ‘create-your-own’

Red Robin Vegan Burger Patty

  • Impossible Burger Patty
  • Veggie Burger Patty

Vegan Buns

  • Brioche Bun
  • Classic Sesame Bun
  • Tavern Bun
  • Wedgie Style (basically lettuce instead of a bun)

The Bottomless House Salad is the way to go in our opinion. By the time you remove everything you need to remove off the other salads, what you’re left with is pretty much the house salad.

  • Bottomless House Salad – Order with NO Croutons and Shredded Mild Cheddar Cheese
  • Side Salad – This is essentially the bottomless house salad without the ‘bottomless’ aspect


  • Steak Fries*
  • Steamed Broccoli

Kid’s Vegan Menu

  • Red’s Cheeseburger – Veggie – Order with NO American Cheese and Dill Pickle Slices
  • Apple Slices
  • Fresh Carrots
  • Kid’s Side Salad
  • Kid’s Steamed Broccoli

Vegan Sauces

  • Cocktail Sauce
  • Guacamole
  • House Made Salsa
  • Island Heat Sauce

*According to Red Robin:

While our steak fries do not include wheat, eggs, soy, fish, shellfish nor milk, and Red Robin does have a dedicated fryer for cooking our steak fries, it is not recommended to consume the steak fries if you are trying to avoid these allergens due to possible cross contact in our fryer station.

Our translation? Yes, cross-contamination may occur. What we really loved when looking through Red Robin’s website and allergen menu is how seriously they seem to take allergens and cross-contamination.

So while cross-contamination is a concern with the steak fries, it’s not really any different than the overwhelming majority of fast food and fast casual establishments.
