Memphis International Airport Vegan Guide (2023)

If you’re walking through the Memphis International Airport in Memphis, Tennessee and you’re trying to figure out what is available vegan (and where you can find everything) then you are in the right place! And if you’re not even at the airport yet and you’re here planning ahead then bonus points for you.

We’ve taken the time to scour through the Memphis (MEM) Airport’s Dining Guide to find everything vegan-friendly in the airport and where everything is located.

We are also very fortunate that we have our VeggL community that often reaches out to us to let us know about vegan options that they find in airports as well.

So, let’s get right to it, here is your Vegan Guide to the Memphis International Airport.

Vegan Options at Memphis Airport

Memphis is a smaller airport with only one main terminal. Most of their restaurants are in a rotunda area which is in the center that connects the gates. 

If you learn of other vegan options, specifically at the local restaurants, please let us know so we can keep this guide up to date for the next vegan traveler. 


Chips & Salsa or Guacamole, Mexican Rice, Black Beans… maybe get a combo of these three and ask for the grilled peppers and onions from the Fajitas (order with NO butter) on the side.

Stage Left 

We have not verified the following menu items are vegan. Stage Left offers Chips & Guacamole, a Beyond Burger and Pizza. With the pizza, vegan cheese is not listed but maybe you could order a veggie pizza with no cheese. Ask about the crust and sauce. Make sure they are vegan.

With the burger, ask if the bun is vegan and any cross-contamination questions you may have if that is a concern for you.

Chick Fil-A

You can always go with the Waffle Fries if you’re just looking for a quick snack to hold you over to your destination. If you’re wanting something a bit (okay, a lot) more healthy then the Kale Crunch Side is vegan as well.

Finally, this will require a bit of modification and is not available at every airport location, but a modified Cool Wrap is actually really delicious. If it is available, order it with NO chicken, cheese or avocado lime dressing. Grab some Polynesian Sauce to dip it in.

Plenty of coffee drinks & combos you can create with oat, almond, soy or coconut milk. We have a list of Starbucks options broken down by hot & cold drinks plus modifications.

And don’t forget they have a few food options. Look for the Chickpea & Avocado Protein Box, a bagel (plain, cinnamon raisin or everything), Strawberry Overnight Grains or Oatmeal. They also have plenty of snacks. Check the ingredient lists.
