Vegan Options at Sonic Drive-In (Updated 2021)

Vegan Options at Sonic Drive-In

Sonic isn’t exactly vegan-friendly, but there are a few things you can grab if you find yourself at one. Maybe you’re out with friends or family and Sonic becomes the lunch destination. If you’re okay with some potential cross-contamination with fried items, then fries, tots or an order of onion rings will be the easiest things you can order.

If you’re not really hungry and want to get something fun, the slushes and many of the add-ins are vegan.

Outside of that, if you’re up for the challenge you can make-your-own veggie sandwich with a random assortment of bread and veggies. Would be awesome to see Sonic jump on the vegan burger wave, but we’re not there yet. In the meantime, here is everything vegan at Sonic Drive-In.

Are Sonic Cinnastacks vegan?

The Cinnabon Cinnastacks at Sonic contain both egg and milk and therefore are not vegan. They are also fried which adds cross-contamination issues.

Our Picks

Ryan’s Pick: I’ve only had Sonic once since going vegan. I had some tots and that was it.

Jen’s Pick: I haven’t been to Sonic since pre-vegan and even then I think I only got tots. I’ll update this if I end up at one again.
