Vegan Options at Texas Roadhouse

The vegan options at Texas Roadhouse are about what you would expect from a steakhouse.

We doubt many vegans are specifically seeking out dining at a steakhouse, but if you end up here while eating with family or friends there are a few sides that you can pull together to make a meal. You’ll also need to make a few special modifications to some menu items and we lay out all the details you need below.

And if you’re interested in learning if their baked potato is vegan, we address that in the FAQ section.

Texas Roadhouse Vegan FAQ

Are the Baked Potatoes at Texas Roadhouse vegan?

We have received conflicting information for the past couple of years and had their baked potato on our guide as a possible vegan option; notating that you must ask if they used any animal ingredients on the outside first. 

We have since chosen to remove them and say no, the Baked Potato is not vegan. Of course, you can still ask but we received additional info stating that Texas Roadhouse coats their baked potatoes with animal fat and that it’s done in preparation. 

I also want to point out that on Texas Roadhouse’s nutritional information, “baked potato” is listed as its only ingredient yet it contains 10mg of cholesterol. There is zero cholesterol in plants. Where is it coming from? We have had even more people say they were told by their location that they do not coat their baked potatoes in animal fat but how can they explain the cholesterol?

Are the Fries at Texas Roadhouse Vegan?

The fries themselves are vegan, however, the Steak Fries at Texas Roadhouse do share a fryer with the catfish. You can choose whether or not you’re comfortable with that or not.
