Thank you for that great information. We often choose subway because it is "healthy", affordable (more affordable than De'Angelo) and walking distance from our house. They don't have the Veggie Max listed at our local store so I usually get just veggies on a flatbread with cheese. I am not vegan but heading that way. Not sure if I can do it though.

Yeah, the veggie patty is vegetarian.

And the white bread is vegan, but the "wheat" is gross. It has barely any whole wheat in it (hence it being called simply "wheat") and it's full of sweeteners, including high fructose corn syrup. Gross.

Subway's white bread is vegan? And nutritionally better than their wheat? Wow! Seriously? I used to always order wheat and stay away from the white.

So, the Veggie Max isn't vegan but, it is vegetarian correct. I hope so because I've not gone totally vegan yet & I really like the Veggie Max.

I work at Subway; our veggie patty isn't vegan (egg) however I'm in Canada so you might want to check at your local store. Go when it's not busy and ask, if they don't know you can always get them to bring the box out to you (it's small) and ingredient check for yourself.
Vegan sauces at subway are sweet onion, barbeque, mustard, ketchup, hot sauce, and the marinara sauce (but only from the bag, not if it's been mixed with the meatballs obviously)

Our white bread is vegan (wheat is not; honey, and "wheat" is actually worse nutritionally than white anyways, tons of sugar) as are wraps. As far as I can tell from ingredient-checking boxes myself our apple pies and hash browns are vegan friendly as well.

I believe that the Veggie Max patty is by Gardenburger - at least it was when it first came out...

Subway also has a Veggie Max. Very few Subways have it listed on their menu & it's not on their website but everyone of them have it.

Thanks for posting this.

I'm with Darren. While I'm glad to see that the fast food industry is paying attention to the needs of vegetarians, I believe that the foods are still a long way from being healthy. Perhaps that will be the next step.

The problem is that my idea of healthy and the general public's idea of healthy are vastly different.

Yes, Annie, I have used their calorie counter, it is awesome!!! They also have the lettuce wrapped burger which I have with the Boca patty and it really is good. You taste all the vegetables. It really cuts down on the calories/fat/ and especially carbs. I get it without the cheese and mayo and add mustard. Oh yeah, and it comes with a salad instead of fries. Then I just have one or two of DH's fries!!

Ditto Leenie. The Red Robin burger is delicious, but so high in calories! It can be 800-900 calories, depending on which type you get! Their website has a calorie counter, though, which is really helpful.

Red Robin has a gardenburger(not vegan) and a boca patty(vegan) that you can sub for all their burgers. Chili's has a really good black bean burger(their recipe) and Ruby Tuesdays also has a black bean burger. As Darren said, vegan doesn't necessarily mean healthy Ruby Tuesday's black bean burger is nearly 1000 calories, that is not counting the fries!!!

Taco Bell here, anyway, will make any one of their meat dishes vegetarian, by substituting the meat with beans. Ours will give you choices of refried, black, navy, kidney or pinto.

Just remember that just because it's vegan, doesn't mean it's healthy. Making your own at home with organic, whole foods is still the ideal, but it is nice to see a change in the industry. Let's hope they don't stop there =)

Mmm, Chipotle is my favorite! You can get a whole vegan burrito bol (rice, black beans, tomato salsa, green salsa & guacamole) for 550 calories! And it's so filling.

When I consider the virtue of abusive words,
I find the scandal-monger is my good teacher. If we do not become angry at gossip, We have no need for powerful endurance and compassion. To be mature in Zen is to be
mature in expression,
And full-moon brilliance of dhyana and prajna
Does not stagnate in emptiness. Not only can I take hold of complete
enlightenment by myself, But all Buddha-bodies, like sands of the Ganges, Can become awakened in exactly the the some way

Many thanks for the great information! It is so nice to know that there vegans/vegetarians actually are being taken seriously now :-) I can still remember how challenging it used to be to try and order vegetarian dishes and the only thing that would be offered is salad!!! Thank god those days are behind us now :-)

To keep up with the times, McDonald’s is offering a McVeggie burger in California and New York City. This is a trial run, and support for this tremendous addition is vital so that the rest of the world can also have access to this quick, animal-friendly burger. No animals were harmed for this burger—talk about a “happy meal”!

Burger King’s new BK Veggie™—a flame-broiled vegetarian burger—enjoyed a successful introduction. Each time a Burger King customer sees “BK Veggie™,” it is a reminder that “having it your way” doesn’t have to mean taking a bite out of Bessie.

Remember going to Baskin-Robbins when you were knee-high to a grasshopper? Awaken the kid in you by trying the chain’s dairy-free and gelatin-free Ices and Sorbets, which are just as yummy and cooling as ice cream—without the pus and hormones.

The French fries, hash-brown nuggets, breadsticks, English muffins, and CrissCuts at Carl’s Jr. are all vegan. In the restaurant, there is an all-you-can-eat salad bar that offers a variety of fresh vegetables and a three-bean salad that can be topped with fat-free Italian dressing. Carl’s Jr. also offers Great Stuff™ baked potatoes, which can be ordered with all-vegetable margarine.

Head to Wendy’s for a plain baked potato, Deluxe Garden Salad (ask for “no cheese”) with the red Italian dressing, or French fries. You can also ask for a veggie sandwich, which includes everything that would normally be on the burger except the meat—there’s even a button for it on the cash register.

Several of Taco Bell’s dishes can be veganized simply by deleting a few ingredients. The 7-Layer Burritos can be vegan with five layers—just forgo the cheese and sour cream. The tacos, nachos, and Mexican pizzas are vegan when you ask the cashier to hold the meat, cheese, and sour cream.

Subway’s Veggie Delite—on Italian bread, minus cheese and mayo—is delish! Want to spice things up a bit? After visiting Subway, visit the nearest grocery store, purchase some fake lunch meats, and load up your sub!

Arby’s offers a garden salad or a side salad with Italian dressing and baked potato. Finish it all off with an apple or cherry turnover.

A great alternative to Subway is Quiznos Subs. It offers a veggie sub that’s filled with guacamole, black olives, lettuce, tomatoes, red onions, and mushrooms—just be sure to order it without the cheese and ask for the balsamic vinaigrette instead of the red wine vinaigrette. Grab a side garden salad and some potato chips, and your stomach will be appeased in no time.

If you stop at Roy Rogers, you’ll find baked potatoes, sides of veggies, and a salad bar. And their mashed potatoes are vegan if you forgo the gravy.

Swing by a Petro truck stop, and you’ll find the Iron Skillet restaurant, where you can refuel with the stacked salad bar and spaghetti with meat-free sauce.

Backyard Burgers, a restaurant chain in the South and the Midwest, offers a delicious garden veggie sandwich.

The Grilled Portobello Mushroom Sandwich and Boca Burger are vegan at Cheeburger Cheeburger, which can be found throughout the Midwest and the South and on the East Coast.

Chipotle offers the Vegetarian Fajita Burrito, but be sure to order the black beans because the pinto beans are cooked with bacon.

The Broiled Portobello Stack at Claim Jumper is vegan if you ask for an unmarinated portobello mushroom.

Coco’s offers a delicious Boca burger that’s vegan if you order it without the mayonnaise.

A hot veggie sub is your vegan option at Cousin’s Subs.

The Daily Grill, located throughout California, offers a vegan grilled vegetable plate.

5 & Diner has several vegan options, including a vegetarian burger and the Veggie Delight.

The vegan option at Flamers Grill is the Veggie Pattie.

You have several vegan options at Hard Times Café, including the Café Veggie Burger and the Veggie Chili. Be sure to tell your server that you don’t want any dairy products in your Veggie Chili.

Harvey’s, with locations in Canada,offers the vegan Veggie Burger.


Houston’s offers a veggie plate and the Vegetarian Burger. Just be sure to order the burger on vegan bread.

The Garden Po’ Boy, the Portobello Wrapini, and the Spinach Veggie Wrap are your vegan options at Jason’s Deli. Be sure to ask about the vegan status of each of these dishes because it varies by location.

John Harvard’s offers a grilled portobello mushroom and a veggie burger. Be sure to check the vegan status of your choice when ordering.

Kelsey’s, with locations in Canada, has several vegan options, including Kelsey’s Vegetable Burger, the Roasted Vegetable Wrap, and the Vegetable Fajita. The vegan status of these dishes varies by location, so be sure to check with your server when ordering.

The Veggie Stack Sandwich is your vegan option at Mimi’s Café, which is located on the West Coast.

All of Moe’s tacos, fajitas, salads, and burritos can be made vegan by substituting tofu for meat and skipping the cheese. Just be sure to ask for a vegan tortilla.

Located throughout Florida, Pollo Tropical offers Caribbean-inspired fast food, including several vegan options such as the Vegetarian TropiChop entrée. Other vegan items include Balsamic Tomatoes and Bananas Tropical. The chain's black beans, French fries, white rice, yellow rice, boiled yucca, and corn are vegan too.

Pyramid Brewery offers a Boca burger that can be substituted for any nonvegan burger on its menu. The Margarita Pizza is also vegan.

The Natural Burger without the Safari Sauce and the Morningstar Garden Grill are the vegan options at Rainforest Café.

Shari’s offers a flame-grilled Gardenburger as its vegan option.

Ohio’s Swenson’s Drive-In offers the Veggie Special.

Tubby’s, with locations in Michigan, has the vegan Hot Veggie Stir-Fry Sandwich.

Village Inn has a Boca burger that is vegan if ordered without mayonnaise and cheese.

World Wraps, with locations in Washington and California, offers its vegan customers the Tofu and Mushroom Teriyaki and the Bombay Curry Veggie.
