Not many vegan options to choose from at Shake Shack, but hopefully that may be changing. In November of 2020, Shake Shack unveiled a Veggie Shack for a limited time at select California, New York, Texas, New Jersey, Kentucky, and Ohio Shacks!
Shake Shack has toyed with adding a vegan-friendly burger option on their menu in the UK and in the States for years now. Let’s hope after this limited taste test trial that a vegan burger will become a permanent fixture on the menu!
VeggL Quick Order
Are you in line at Shake Shack and need to figure out what to order, like NOW!?! Here is what we recommend:
- If you’re lucky, your location offers the Veggie Shack. Ask your server. If they do, make sure to order with NO mayo.
- Grab some fries and call it a day. Cross-contamination may be an issue but they’re still your best bet if the Veggie Shack is not available.
- If you’re feeling super creative, there is a list of Mix-Ins (Ice Cream toppings, basically) that you choose from. No vegan ice cream though.

Vegan & Vegetarian Options
Shake Shack specifically addresses some information about vegetarian and vegan options:
The ‘Shroom Burger is a vegetarian burger, and doesn’t contain meat. All rennet and enzymes are plant-based. Some Shacks use the same equipment and frying oil to cook chicken. Please ask a team member about the policies at your local Shack.
