Vegan Options at Wendy’s (Updated 2021)

Vegan Options at Wendy's

The vegan options at Wendy’s are pretty limited. You can go with a baked potato, side salad, fries* or fries* on a bun. Seriously, check out the “fry sandwich” below. Super weird, but oddly good. Other than that, go for a salad and make the required modifications.

And without further ado, check out our list of all the vegan options at Wendy’s.

Wendy’s Vegan FAQ


Are Wendy’s Natural Cut Fries Vegan?

Technically, this depends on where you hold the line around cross-contamination. Do the fries contain any animal products? No. But they are fried in the same oil as their other menu items that contain meat and dairy. You choose your comfort level. 

Can I eat WFPB (Whole Food Plant Based) at Wendy’s?

Yes! Apple Bites, Baked Potato–plain or with chives (order with no butter, cheese or sour cream) and a Side Salad (order with no cheese or croutons). Ask if you can sub with avocado, guacamole or salsa. Other toppings could be ketchup or mustard.

Our Picks

Jen’s Pick: To be honest, the Fry Sandwich is everything but I only get it when my mind isn’t wrapped around the fact that the fries are cross-contaminated. The next best thing & I think we need to tell them to add it to the menu is a plain baked potato with salsa(from the taco salad) & avocado(from the SW Avocado Chicken Salad).

Ryan’s Pick: The Fry Sandwich is a little odd, but it is surprisingly good.
