Vegan Options at TGI Fridays (Updated 2021)

Vegan Options at TGI Fridays

The Beyond Burger has made it’s way to the vegan options at TGI Fridays. You will have to make a few modifications (cheese and bun) to make the burger vegan, but it’s a good start.

Outside of the burger there are a few other menu items that can be modified, but not a whole lot else to choose from. The Beyond Burger is a great start though – no more ordering a bland, boring salad if you end up at Friday’s.

Vegan Options at TGI Fridays

  • The Beyond Meat Cheeseburger – (Advise NO White Cheddar) Choose the Challah Bun (Gluten Free bun is NOT vegan)
    Made from plant-based ingredients, this juicy, mouthwatering burger satisfies like beef. Our patty is seasoned and grilled, lettuce, tomato, red onions, pickles and Fridays™ sauce.
  • Chinese Salad (Advise No Chicken, can sub with Beyond Meat) – citrus marinade, mixed greens, sliced carrots, red cabbage, green onions, mandarin oranges, roasted peanuts, sesame seeds, crispy noodles and Sesame Citrus dressing.
  • Tostado Nachos – Advise NO meat, cheese and sour cream
  • House Salad – Advise NO cheese or croutons. Ask for the Sesame Citrus for dressing.


  • Fruit Cup

Salad Dressings

  • Sesame Citrus


  • Fresh Fruit
  • Marinara Pasta

Note: Some items that we normally see as vegan, like fries*, balsamic vinaigrette and jasmine rice contain milk and/or egg according to the TGI Fridays Allergen Page

*Both the Seasoned Fries and Sweet Potato Fries may be vegan, but are subject to cross contamination from shared fryers. We are waiting to hear back from TGI Fridays on this.

Ryan’s Pick: I’ve not been to a TGI Fridays since going vegan although, fun fact, I worked at one for a brief stint in college.

Jen’s Pick: I’ve not been to a TGI Fridays since high school (pre-vegan); however, if I do visit one, I do appreciate that they are offering a Beyond Burger! Or the Citrus Salad sounds good.
