We have been working to get the vegan options for Lucas Oil Stadium for the 2021 season. While we haven’t given up, our attempts to reach out to the stadium have not had much success yet.
What we do have in this guide, though, is items that have been available at Colts’ games in the past.
We also looked up the policies that may effect you trying to bring food into the stadium to save you the trouble of trying to find those yourself. Finally, we researched around the stadium to find a couple good vegan-friendly spots close by.
If you know something we don’t, please reach out and let us know so we can make this guide better!

Can I Bring Food Into Lucas Oil Stadium?
If you are thinking about bringing your own food to the stadium, here are a few policies at Lucas Oil Stadium that you will want to be familiar with. These were all pulled from the Colts’ Gameday A to Z Guide.

The NFL strongly encourages fans to not bring any type of bags, but fans will be able to carry the following style and size bag, package, or container at stadium plaza areas, stadium gates, or when approaching queue lines of fans awaiting entry into the stadium:
- Bags that are clear plastic, vinyl or PVC and do not exceed 12″ x 6″ x 12.” (Official NFL team logo clear plastic tote bags will be available through club merchandise outlets or at nflshop.com), or
- No buckles, grommets/hardware or décor can be concealing any part of the bag. The bag literally must be all clear.
- One-gallon clear plastic freezer bag (Ziplock bag or similar).
- Logo can only be on one side of the bag.

Vegan Options Near Lucas Oil Stadium
Finding a good place to get a bite to eat before or after the game is always part of our gameday experience. We did the same ‘due diligence’ we would do for ourselves, looking close by the stadium to find a couple good vegan-friendly spots.
This is by no means a complete list of vegan restaurants in the area, just two that caught our attention.
Three Carrots Fountain Square
920 Virginia Ave, Indianapolis, IN 46203
We’ve looked through hundreds (maybe thousands) of Google reviews over the past couple years and we’ve found that it’s really hard to maintain a score over 4.5.
But, that’s just what Three Carrots has done with a 4.6 rating over the course of almost a thousand reviews.
They’re located about a mile and a half east of the stadium and they serve everything from their vegan versions of American staples like BBQ and mac n cheese to Banh Mi Bowls.
Everyone seems to rave over the seitan which is featured in a few dishes so keep that on your radar if you get a chance to check out Three Carrots.
15 W Maryland St, Indianapolis, IN 46204
Yard House isn’t what you’d normally expect as a vegan-friendly recommendation, but here is why we like to recommend Yard House’s on our Stadium Guides.
First, like many Yard House’s this one is basically walking distance to and from the stadium (about a half mile away). Second, they have a really good selection of vegan options on their menu.
Third, Yard House is a very popular sports bar that is easy to get non-vegan friends and family on board with on game day. Win. Win. Win.
Our Yard House Vegan Guide will show you how to order everything vegan at Yard House.
