Vegan Options at Yard House (Updated 2023)

Yard House Vegan Options

You cannot go wrong with stopping at a Yard House for vegan options! They have a few menu items that do not share a fryer but what Yard House is known for is offering Gardein chicken products, which do share a fryer so just be aware of that.

Yard House has also changed the ingredients for their Beyond Burger. You do have to switch out the bun but it does have vegan mozzarella! We make you aware of your options, you choose your comfort level with shared surfaces and fryers.

If you prefer no shared fryer or grill, stick with the steamed or spicy edamame, spicy rice and pinto beans. 

Let’s get into all of their options!

*These items share a fryer with animal products. Yard House uses communal cooking equipment and prep areas for all their menu offerings. As with any restaurant that is not 100% vegan or does not offer a designated cooking space for their vegan options, cross-contamination can occur and fryers/grills may be shared with animal products. You can choose what your level of comfort is with these potential issues.

Our Picks

Ryan’s Pick: The Gardein Buffalo Wings and the Gardein BBQ “Chicken” Pizza (with vegan cheese) are both really good. I realize it’s just Gardein and I can basically make them at home, but it’s nice to be able to order effortlessly off the menu in a place like Yard House.

*The Gardein BBQ “Chicken” Pizza is no longer available. 

Jen’s Pick: I’ve only been once but really did enjoy what I got! I started with the chilled edamame then follow it up with the Gardein Chicken BBQ Pizza. Order with Vegan Cheese. *This pizza is no longer available.
