Fun Fact: in 2019, Dallas was included in PETA's list of the 10 most vegan friendly cities in the US...at spot #7! You might not expect the land of BBQ and Tex-Mex to be vegan friendly, but there's more than meets the eye. Explore the below options for completely vegan spots or those with accommodating menus.  


 

SPIRAL DINER

SPIRAL DINER & BAKERY

When people think of Dallas vegan food, Spiral Diner is likely the first restaurant people think of! With locations in Fort Worth, Dallas, and now Denton, Spiral Diner has been serving up vegan comfort food since 2002. They serve breakfast all day, and of course, have brunch on the weekends; get there early though, because it’s always slammed! They have gluten-free options, too. Need to stop in for something quick or have a birthday to celebrate? Spiral Diner has baked goods in-house, makes custom cakes, and now does to-go orders, too!

BAM’S VEGAN

Bam’s Vegan specializes in food that helps people “transition into a healthier vegan/plant-based lifestyle.” You can also visit his website and find yummy recipes like Bam’s Classic Breakfast, Jackfruit Ropa Vieja and Chipotle Sage Nachos. When you visit him though on Saturday or Sunday at the Farmer’s Market, just be prepared for a long line of hungry customers. And get there early! He does sell out, because yes he is that popular!

DALLAS FARMERS MARKET | DIRECTIONS

 

VEGAN VIBRATIONZ

VEGAN VIBRATIONZ

Another popular spot at the Farmers Market, Vegan Vibrationz takes a fun approach to Vegan! Since Texas is definitely known for being a meat state, they like to show their customers that vegan can taste just as good as meat! For example, chicken and waffles, instead of chicken they use fried oyster mushrooms!

NUNO’S TACO & VEGMEX GRILL

NUNO’S TACO & VEGMEX GRILL

If you are vegan but not ready to give up Tex Mex (that is usually meat heavy), here is your solution!!

JEFF’S VEGAN

JEFF’S VEGAN

If you are in the Frisco area, Jeff’s Vegan is a must! It’s a vegan-based Asian restaurant with offerings that include Sweet and Sour soup, potstickers, Buffalo Cauliflower, Crispy Spicy Chacha and more. And while it’s actually quite easy to eat vegan at many Asian restaurants with eggless noodles and lots of tofu and veggies, Jeff specializes in ONLY vegan Asian, but also cooks up vegan burgers and burritos too!

FRISCO | DIRECTIONS

 

ITSO VEGAN

ITSO VEGAN

ITSO Vegan’s goal is to make vegan food so great that even the pickiest eaters will love it!

TIKI LOCO

Located in Deep Ellum and opened by Elm Street Tattoo owner, Ink Master judge and vegan Oliver Peck, Tiki Loco is definitely something to stop by and experience!

Their menu is 100% plant-based and gluten-free and they are apparently killing it!

DEEP ELLUM | DIRECTIONS

DA MUNCHIES

Another vegan hole-in-the-wall, serving up vegan comfort food, Da Munchies is located in West Dallas and offers dishes like buffalo chicken sandwiches, beyond meat burgers, fried oyster mushrooms, and more.

V-EATS

V-EATS

Located in Trinity Groves, V-Eats is another Dallas staple. Not only do they serve amazing vegan food, but their drinks are to die for as well; they use cold-pressed juices, kombucha, and fresh herbs for their house cocktails.

DOWNTOWN | DIRECTIONS

 

VEGAN FOOD HOUSE

VEGAN FOOD HOUSE

This new spot near Bishop Arts has one of the most interesting menus we’ve seen! The entire restaurant is vegan; “meats” are seitan-, soy-, jackfruit-, or mushroom-based. The menu includes shrimp creole nachos, portobello mushroom steak, Daddy’s fried ginger “beef” sandwich, and many more creative options! Their hours are a bit atypical, so make sure you check their website before you plan your visit!

OAK CLIFF | DIRECTIONS

 

NATURE’S PLATE

NATURE’S PLATE

It may not be difficult to find vegan food at restaurants and grocery stores, but what about meal-prep service? Nature’s Plate is here to help!
