What is vegan at Popeyes?

Popeyes doesn’t have many vegan options at all, but they do have a few.

I’d never recommend going here as a vegan though, as almost everything contains animal products, and some quite nasty unexpected ones at that. If you are a non-vegan looking for a vegan family member or friend, thanks for that. But I’ll just tell you right off the bat you should go somewhere else, anywhere else, as pretty much anywhere is better than Popeyes for a Vegan.

What are the vegan options on Popeyes’s menu?

The below-listed products are the only vegan products they carry short of condiments like Ketchup as of Mid-2019, if this does change and some news comes out please use our contact form to let us know, but judging by Popeyes behavior and lack of regard for even vegetarians, I suspect we won’t be getting any good news from them anytime soon.


That’s it, everything else on their menu contains either dairy/egg allergies (and thus aren’t vegan) or contain cholesterol according to their nutrition menu, meaning they are not vegan as plants do not contain any cholesterol. The cholesterol in the other products, such as their fries, comes from using pig-lard as their “oil” source for frying and various products.

  • Corn on the Cob (Without Butter)
  • Baguette (not at most locations)
  • Grits (made with water, check)
  • Apple Sauce
  • Juice/Black-Coffee/Sodas
