Does Burger King have vegan options? Every item in the US in 2023

Table of Contents

While veganism is on the rise, there are still many fast-food chains that simply ignore it. However, BK isn’t one of them.  Actually, Burger King was one of the first fast-food restaurants to launch its own vegan meat-sustainable burger called Impossible Burger, which is almost plant-based. Let’s see how far Burger King’s vegan menu went.

How to order vegan at Burger King in the United States?

Unfortunately, BK’s vegan options are a little bit bitter compared to those in the UK or India, for example. However, they are still better than most fast-food chains. So, what is vegan at Burger King?

Does Burger King have vegan burger?

Yes, it does. Unfortunately, it isn’t plant-based naturally in the US. How come? BK doesn’t have plant-based mayo ( or cheese); the well-known Impossible™ Whopper comes with mayo, and the other one, called Single Impossible King, contains regular cheese. So, you have to exclude them from your order, and that’s all—the vegan burger is ready!

What are Burger King vegan burgers made of?

  • The famous Impossible Whooper comes with a flame-grilled, plant-based patty with juicy tomatoes, crisp lettuce, creamy mayonnaise (unfortunately not vegan, so exclude it), ketchup, crunchy pickles, and sliced white onions on a toasted sesame seed bun.
  • There is another almost plant-based burger called Single Impossible King. It contains a flame-grilled patty* made from plants topped with melty American cheese (sadly, it isn’t cheeze so exclude it), sliced white onions, crunchy pickles, ketchup, and mustard all on a toasted sesame seed bun.

The 3.6 oz plant-based Impossible Patty contains the following ingredients according to the Impossible Foods company: Water, soy protein concentrate, coconut oil, sunflower oil, natural flavors, 2% or less of potato protein, methylcellulose, yeast extract, cultured dextrose, food starch modified, soy leghemoglobin, salt, mixed tocopherols (antioxidant), soy protein isolate, zinc gluconate, thiamine hydrochloride (vitamin B1), niacin, pyridoxine hydrochloride (vitamin B6), riboflavin (vitamin B2), and vitamin B12.

Beware, the plant-based patty is prepared on the same surface as other items such as meat patty!

Sides at BK

There are quite a few vegan side options at Burger King:

French Fries

This is a classic item that should be on every fast-food chain’s menu. It is supposed to be vegan, naturally.

French Toast Sticks

Basically, French fries with extra steps are for breakfast only. While traditional French Toast is only vegetarian, BK doesn’t use eggs or dairy to make it so, while Mcdo uses dairy in its seasoning. Does McDonald’s have better options than BK? Find out!

Onion Rings

This must be the most pleasant surprise. Usually, people tend to use at least egg (or even dairy) in their crumbs. However, according to the allergen guide, Burger King’s onion rings are free from egg and dairy, so they are accidentally vegan!

Vegan Sauces at Burger King

There are no sides without dipping sauces. You can choose from the following ones 

  • BBQ Sauce
  • Sweet & Sour Sauce
  • Italian Salad Dressing

Is there Vegan Dessert at Burger King?

No, there is not a single vegan dessert available at BK. What a pity. The closest thing to dessert is Mott’s applesauce, which is the only vegan item on Kid’s menu. Even the oatmeal is made of milk.


There is nothing special; there are just the usual fast-food beverages, such as Coca-Cola, Diet Coca-Cola, Fanta, Dr. Pepper, black coffee (and decaf), Orange Juice, Apple Juice, Sprite, and Sweetened/unsweetened iced tea.

Is there any better vegan fast-food restaurant than Burger King?

While BK’s plant-based options aren’t bad at all, there are still many better places to visit. If you really want to have a great vegan burger, then you should definitely visit Slutty Vegan, which is a totally plant-based place. However, Cheesecake Factory is your place if you are craving a slightly healthier option. What is vegan at Cheesecake Factory? Check out!
