Arby’s, a fast-food chain renowned for its meat-centric menu, surprisingly offers a selection of vegan options. While they may not be at the forefront of plant-based dining, Arby’s provides a few choices that can satisfy those looking for a vegan meal.
Let’s dive into the vegan delights that Arby’s has tucked away in its predominantly meaty menu.
Vegan Options at Arby’s
Fries and Potato-Based Sides
Arby’s shines in the potato department, offering a variety of vegan-friendly fries and potato-based sides. These include:
- Curly Fries
- Crinkle Fries
- Homestyle Fries (Regional Item)
- Potato Cakes
- French Toast Sticks (Breakfast)
Note: These items share a fryer with animal products, so there might be cross-contamination.
For a lighter option, Arby’s offers a basic salad that can be vegan-friendly:
- Chopped Side Salad (Order with NO cheese)
Pair it with vegan dressings like Light Italian Dressing or Balsamic Vinaigrette.
Arby’s has a sweet surprise with its ‘accidentally’ vegan turnovers:
- Apple Turnover
- Cherry Turnover
Both contain palm oil, which some vegans might choose to avoid due to environmental concerns.
While there are no vegan sandwich fillings, you can opt for vegan bread options:
- Harvest Wheat Bun
- Marble Rye Bread
- Mini Bun
- Sourdough “Breakfast Bread”
Arby’s offers a range of vegan drinks:
- Various sodas

While Arby’s may not be a vegan haven, it does offer a handful of options for those in a pinch or seeking a quick vegan bite. Remember, cross-contamination is possible in a non-vegan establishment, so individual comfort levels may vary. Arby’s vegan options, though limited, are a step towards inclusivity in fast food dining.
