Everything Vegan at Wienerschnitzel (2021)
Wienerschnitzel is an American fast-food hot-dog chain that, at least of now, doesn’t have a vegan hot dog on their menu — nor any other great vegan options.
They do have a few vegan options though — although they don’t really have enough to constitute even a decent vegan meal, yet one worth writing home about, so ultimately we’d recommend avoiding Wienerschnitzel if you’re a vegan.
Vegan Breakfast Options at Wienerschnitzel:
- (black) Coffee
- Orange Juice
Their breakfast menu isn’t available at all locations, so at your location they may not have these options — but even if not they’ll generally have them during lunch/dinner time with the exception of Coffee.
Vegan Lunch & Dinner Menu at Wienerschnitzel:
Unfortunately they not only don’t have any vegan substitutes, but they also lack a starchy plant-food to give some “substance” to the meal. As a result their menu is even more narrow than fried chicken places which generally at least have boiled corn or fast-food joints that don’t have a vegan meal such as Wendy’s, which has baked potatoes amongst other sides they offer.
- Regular Bun (no butter)
- Pretzel Bun (no butter)
- All regular drinks/beverages/soda
Unfortunately Wienerschnitzel’s fries, like their Hash Brown Po’Taters, aren’t vegan as they are fried in oil that contains animal-lard. They’re one of the few restaurants that still fry everything in non-vegan oil.
Hopefully one day they, as well as the other restaurants that do the same (such as Texas Roadhouse & McDonald’s amongst others) stop and just use plain vegetable oil like dang near everybody else does.
So how does Wienerschnitzel Look For A Vegan?
You can’t even make yourself the standard vegan “meal” at the worst restaurants for a vegan, and that’s a french fry sandwich. All you have is some crappy buns, a tortilla, and some drinks.
If you’re being dragged here eating before you go or after you leave is truthfully your best option as it’s not really possible to whip up even a botched vegan meal here. Basically anywhere else will have more vegan options than Wienerschnitzel — avoid it at all costs if you’re vegan.
