Vegan Options at Culver’s (Updated 2021)

Vegan Options at Culver's

There aren’t a ton of vegan options at Culver’s but there a couple salad options (and apples!). Culver’s is a chain that originated in Wisconsin and is now in 25 states across the country. They specialize in burgers, fries and frozen custard.

Considering they’re not very vegan friendly, if you have the option, we’d recommend trying another spot close by. If you do find yourself stuck at Culver’s… did we mention salad?
