What is vegan at Wendy’s?

Wendy’s has quite a few great vegan options, including some salads, some great starchy sides, and of course some junk-food. They’ve yet to release a vegan burger though. Rumor has it that they’ll introduce one soon though!

What are the vegan options on Wendys’ menu?

There’s no Vegan burger at Wendy’s currently and there’s no release date for one to come out.  Even in 2022, as many other burger chains like Burger King has came out with vegan-friendly options Wendy’s still has quite little, and no veggie burger option at all.


Your best bet, if you’re eating at Wendy’s, is to get a couple baked potatoes and a salad, which isn’t great by any means, but it’s not worse than many other “Burger” places in America..

  • Baked Potato with Chives
  • Plain Baked Potato
  • Wendy’s Natural-Cut Fries
  • Garden Side Salad (No Croutons – Select a Vegan Dressing below)
  • Apple Slices
  • Mixed Berry Fruit Cup
  • Salsa & Chips (Not on the menu, but available)
  • Seasoned Breakfast Potatoes


Not all Salad dressing will be available at every location and they change quite frequently, but generally all the vinaigrette dressings are vegan. They should have ingredient lists on them for you to check specifically if it’s not listed above.

  • Garden Side Salad (No Croutons)
  • Berry Burst Chicken Salad (No Cheese or Feta, No Chicken)
  • Southwest Avocado Chicken Salad (No Chicken, Bacon, cheese, swap dressing)
  • Apple Pecan Chicken Salad (No Cheese, Chicken, or Pecans)
  • Fat Free French
  • Italian Vinaigrette
  • Balsamic Vinaigrette
  • Pomegranate Vinaigrette
  • Red Italian dressing
  • Light Spicy Asian Chili Vinaigrette


That’s pretty much it other than ketchup and obviously vegan condiments and sodas. You can stuff fries in the “veggie sandwich,” but unless you’re craving a “wendy flavored” sandwich I’d give this a pass. It’s not very satisfying in my opinion and usually ends in regret that you didn’t just get a baked potato instead. The leftover vegan options are listed below.

  • Veggie (no meat) sandwich
  • Buns
  • Vegetables

Is Wendy’s fries vegan?

Yes, Wend’s fries are vegan. Wendy’s doesn’t use animal-lard to fry their french fries like many “burger” restaurants do, so their fries are in fact Vegan. They are fried in common fryers, but that doesn’t contribute to animal exploitation so that doesn’t make them non-vegan.

Are Wendy’s Frosty’s Vegan?

No, Wendy’s Frosty’s are not vegan-friendly as they contain dairy and they’ve yet to introduce a plant-based milk version of them currently.

Does Wendy’s have veggie burger?

No, Wendy’s doesn’t have a veggie burger. Also, the Veggie Stack sandwich  is also a no-go for us vegans, because it contains pasteurized EGG Yolk.

What fast-food restaurants offer vegan options?

There are many other vegan fast-food options for eating a vegan-friendly sandwich or breakfast. Other places like Starbucks let you create your own vegan sandwich. Several plant-based ingredients are available and can be added to your own sandwich.

What are the vegan options in Subway?

In Subway, you have a chance to create your own vegan sandwich. Ultimately like all sub shops they aren’t really anything special for us vegans, as all they have in terms of a meal is bread with vegetables or so-so salads to offer. Luckily, they have a veggie patty.
