The vegan options at Burger King are the talk of the town! With the Impossible Burger, they are moving in the right direction. For Vegans, it’s not as simple as just going & ordering it. We give you the low down below.
On a positive note, you can now get a full Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner at BK–if you’re ok with your food sharing fryers and/or asking for a different cooking surface. <-That’s putting a lot of trust in to the employees! Word of warning though, too many French Toast Sticks will have you ready to go right back to bed.
FYI: We do not judge if you are or are not ok with cross-contamination. In our opinion, that’s for every vegan to decide for themselves. We’re just giving as much info as possible!
Vegan Options at Burger King
VeggL Quick Order
In the drive thru at Burger King and need to know what to order, like NOW?!! Here are the best vegan options at Burger King that we recommend:
- Order the Impossible Whopper with NO mayo (many times they will ask you if you want to add cheese so I typically order with NO cheese on the front end also). You can also add fries* to make it a combo.
- If you’re at Burger King for breakfast you can order the French Toast Sticks* and Hash Browns.
- Impossible Whopper. Order with NO mayo. To ensure your burger is not grilled close to animal burgers, ask for your burger to be cooked on different surface. ->They have been trained to cook it in the microwave.
- Whopper Jr. Order with NO meat or mayo. This does not include the Impossible burger. It’s just a bun & veggies
- French Fries*
- Garden Side Salad w/Ken’s Golden Italian Dressing. Advise NO cheese or croutons.
Vegan Breakfast Items
- French Toast Sticks*
- Hash Browns
Curious about if the new Impossible Croissan’wich is vegan? (Spoiler Alert: it’s not)
*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.

Technically, you could order the side salad with NO cheese or croutons but you will not have a dressing to go on it. The applesauce Burger King carries is Mott’s which contains high fructose corn syrup so that is not an option.

Ryan’s Pick: I’m not going to lie, I’ve been crushing Impossible Whoppers. They’re amazing. I will also say that Burger King fries are some of my absolute favorites of any fast food spot. They’re always super crispy with a good amount of salt on them.
Having said that, if we’re stopping at Burger King it’s usually a road trip breakfast drive-thru situation to grab French Toast Sticks and Hash Browns. Without failure I always seem to really enjoy the French Toast Sticks while eating them and then always regret eating them cause I feel awful afterward.
The sense of lethargy and queasiness after consuming deep fried grease and sugar is just such a terrible combo, but then I never seem to learn my lesson either or they’re just that good it’s worth it. I can never seem to decide which.
Jen’s Pick: In a pinch or a late night out(wink), I am a fan of Burger King. I like their French Toast Sticks, Hash Browns, Impossible Whopper and Fries. I do tend to add my own vegan mayo to the Impossible Whopper though.
