Vegan Options at Zaxby’s (Updated 2023)

Vegan Options at Zaxby's

You may not expect a lot of vegan options at Zaxby’s and you’d pretty much be right. Zaxby’s is chain specializing in chicken tenders and fries.

The good news is half of that equation, crinkle fries, are vegan* (Zaxby’s uses shared equipment so cross-contamination is present). The bad news is there’s not much else to choose from.

Here is everything vegan at Zaxby’s:

Our Picks

Ryan’s Pick: Got Zaxby’s for the first time today since going vegan. All I got was the ‘basket of fries’ and they were really good. They’re old school crinkle cut fries and then they add some type of seasoning on them that takes them to the next level.

Jen’s Pick: …haven’t been either but will update when we do!
