There are more than 700 Moe’s Southwest Grill locations in the United States and abroad. With so many locations there is a good chance that there will come a time when you find yourself ordering from their menu.
If you are vegan, you might be wondering what this Mexican and Tex Mex combination has to offer people with your specific dietary needs. I know I was curious. In my experience, Mexican restaurants seem to have the most options when it comes to ordering a plant-based meal.
Let’s take a look at Moe’s vegan options.
Moe’s vegan options are pretty good
Moe’s Southwest Grill is one of those places that offers a build-your-own experience. Think Subway or Blaze Pizza meets Mexican food. You are not restricted to a menu, instead, you can create your own burrito. These restaurants are pretty easy for vegans to navigate because the whole concept is built around making your own choices.
If you are a vegan with anxiety like me and you have a hard time telling a server what you want out of fear of being complicated, you are in luck.
Moe’s also has vegan options outside of the build your own selections.
Moe’s vegan options for main dishes:
- Homewrecker Burrito with Organic Tofu – You will want to order this item with no cheese or sour cream. It comes with your choice of black or pinto beans, rice, shredded lettuce, pico de gallo, and guac. Unlike Chipotle, you do not have to pay extra for guac.
- Homewrecker Bowl – This will be the same as the burrito. Picture the burrito fixings in a bowl instead of wrapped up in a tortilla. Make sure to request no cheese or sour cream.
- Build Your Own Salad – You can build a salad using the same ingredients you will find below. This allows you to build a salad with only the things you want.
- Create Your Own Tacos – You can build your own tacos using the same ingredients that are listed below.
- Chips and Salsa – While this is more of a side than a main dish, note that it is vegan-friendly. If you are in the mood for something on the lighter side you can just order this. You could also order it as an appetizer or side dish.
There is also a pretty good vegan & non-vegan food review on the Princess and the Bear channel if you want to check it out:
