Vegan Options at Red Robin (Updated 2022)

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 now has not one, but two, vegan-friendly burger patties on their menu–a quinoa-based 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 are going to Red Robin, isn’t a (vegan) burger why you’re going in the first place?

Are Red Robin’s Fries Vegan?

An answer so unnecessarily complicated that we did an entire article going through all the details.

Basically, yes they are, but you need to ask for them to be fried in a dedicated fryer to avoid cross-contamination. A fryer that is apparently available, but not used all the time for fries. We’re still not totally sure why.
