Arby’s isn’t the most vegan-friendly restaurant out there, they’ve made fun of vegans and vegetarians numerous times and “pranked” us many times pretending to add vegan options, and generally aren’t a veg-friendly company.
Despite this, they do have a few vegan options to choose from. Not enough to really build a satisfying nor healthy vegan meal, but enough to get a quick snack or satisfy a craving for junk-food.

Arby’s Vegan Sandwiches/Dishes:
Arby’s doesn’t carry any sandwiches that can be made vegan, nor enough vegetables to make a vegetable-sandwich. They also don’t have any other “main course” type of dishes that can be made vegan. They do have many tasty sides, and some other vegan options we’ll go over below though.
If you want you can buy some bread and a side dish and make a “sandwich” out of it I suppose, but I wouldn’t recommend it.
Vegan Side Dishes at Arby’s:
- Seasoned Curly Fries
- French Toast Sticks
- Homestyle (Traditional) French Fries
- Potato “Cakes”
- Apple Slices (Kids Menu)
- Apple Sauce (Kids Menu)
- Side Salad (No Cheese, see dressings below)
The “Crispy Onion Rings” contain milk/eggs, so while some people have said they’re vegan online, I can assure you they’re not. We contacted Arby’s directly and checked a couple Arby’s locations and they all said they were non-vegan.
Vegan Bread Options at Arby’s:
- Harvest Wheat Bun
- Sourdough “Breakfast Bread”
- Marble Rye Bread
- Mini Bun
It’s nice that their breads are vegan, but since there’s nothing to put on it other than a few vegan sauces (listed below) there’s only the sides, as Arby’s doesn’t carry many vegetables. They have Onions and Tomatoes usually, although they’re reluctant to give them and they hardly make a sandwich by their self.
Vegan Dressings & Sauces at Arby’s:
- Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing
- Light Italian Dressing
- Bronco Berry Sauce
- Red Ranch Sauce
- Smoky Q Sauce
- Arby’s Sauce
- Marinara Sauce
Vegan Desserts at Arby’s:
- Apple Turnover
- Cherry Turnover
It’s pretty surprising but both offerings of the turnovers don’t have any milk, eggs, or honey
How’s Arby’s for a Vegan?
Arbys isn’t too good for us vegans, however as mentioned before you can eat there for a snack, or maybe make an unhealthy meal out of the options they have. Get some Onion and tomato on a sandwich, some mariana sauce, and some curly fries or french toast sticks and you’ll have an OK sandwich.
Personally I’d recommend avoiding this restaurant entirely though, their options aren’t good and their marketing is downright attacking vegetarians/vegans. If family insists on going there just eat elsewhere. Almost every fast-food joint has better vegan options than Arby’s. You can check out more Vegan Fast-food Options here.
Does Arby’s have Veggie-Burgers?
While they’ve put out some marketing, as have other 3rd parties, suggesting that they may add vegan or plant-based burgers they’ve since made it abundantly clear that they won’t, likely ever, do such a thing.
It’s a real shame they’re so hostile towards Vegetarians and Vegans, but I suppose you can’t expect a fast-food joint all-about meat to be too clever.
