These plant-based burgers are the ultimate vegan comfort food.
The rise of the vegan and vegetarian burger is finally here, and contemporary fast-food restaurants are opening up to a whole different market by including beyond meat, impossible meat, etc. Just about any fast food restaurant, you go to will have a veggie or vegan option. This article will share our top five favorite vegan burgers from local and big chain fast-food restaurants, including any modifications you may need to make when ordering.

Most of the vegan burgers out there in fast food joints are impossible or beyond meet, but Freddy’s took things one step further with their “in-house” vegan burger that’s made with textured soy protein concentrate and black beans. However, Freddy’s vegan burger is actually a veggie burger, so some modifications should be made when ordering to make it entirely vegan; make sure there’s no cheese and no thousand island dressing. There have been rumors of some Freddy’s locations in Texas making their patties with egg, so make sure to ask what goes into their patties when ordering.

The Impossible Whopper was one of the very first plant-based burgers to be sold at a fast-food chain. The Impossible Whopper made its debut on August 8th, 2019, and since then, we’ve seen almost every fast-food chain hop on the veggie/vegan burger trend. Not only is the Impossible Whopper one of the best plant-based burgers out there, but it’s one of the best vegan fast food menu options at any fast-food chain in the country. Vegans need to make slight modifications to this burger to make it 100% vegan; simply ask for no mayo or cheese when ordering and experience the trailblazing Imposible Whopper for yourself.

Although Burger King was one of the first major fast-food chains to incorporate plant-based burgers, Carl Jr was actually one of the early adopters of plant-based patties back in December of 2018. When Carl Jr. began rolling out plant-based patties, other local burger joints and restaurants quickly saw their success and began rolling them out themselves. Carl Jr’s Beyond Famous Star Burger needs slight modifications; ask for no cheese and no mayo, and experience one of the first authentic plant-based burgers in the country.
