Everything Vegan at Torchy's Tacos (Late-2020)

Torchy's Tacos Vegan Food Menu Logo

Torchy’s Tacos is honestly not the place for vegans — it’s alright for vegetarians but for us vegans it’s not really possible to have a satisfying meal currently.

We’d recommend avoiding Torchy’s entirely if you’re vegan, as pretty much anywhere will be more vegan-friendly, from other Tex-mex places like Qdoba or On the Border to American-Chinese like Pei Wei, to American-style food like Hardees/Carls Jr. which all offer plenty of vegan-options.

If you’re already at Torchy’s, well, there’s a few options we’ll go over below, but don’t get excited — practically everything Torchy’s sells contains dairy (milk), even their pinto-beans are cooked with Parmesan cheese.

Vegan-Friendly Appetizers at Torchy's Tacos:

  • Avocado Sauce & Chips
  • Diablo Sauce & Chips
  • Pico De Gallo & Chips
  • Roja Sauce & Chips
  • Tomatillo Sauce & Chips

Really the only appetizers they have is chips and the above-mentioned vegan-friendly sauces, and that’s it.

Vegan-Friendly Food Items at Torchy's Tacos:

  • Potato-Rice Guacamole Taco (Special Request)
  • Torchy’s Mexican Rice
  • Corn Tortillas
  • Avocado/Guacamole

That’s really all the food Torchy’s has that’s vegan-friendly, the others aren’t vegan-friendly and cannot really be made vegan-friendly as apparently even the fried avoacdo is non-vegan, It’s a shame they put cheese in their beans both during and after cooking, as without beans it’s just too hard to really have a real meal at Torchy’s Tacos. 

Vegan-Friendly Drinks at Torchy's Tacos:

  • All Sodas/Lemonades
  • Various Alcohol Drinks (Check Barnivore to confirm)

Ultimately drinks are almost always vegan, but I figured I’d mention them anyways, as some taco/mexican places don’t sell anything but water.
