Eating Vegan at Texas Roadhouse- The Tastiest Options

Share this Post!:

Just the name Texas Roadhouse brings to mind meat-centric dishes like stacks of ribs and meaty steaks. Queue the cowboys on horseback and the soaring Bald Eagles- it doesn’t get more American than this rough-and-tumble restaurant! The idea alone of attempting to order something vegan here is intimidating. This is no “lavender latte with oatmilk” kind of crowd. But have no fear! Using the Vegan Unlocked secret menu, vegan menu and editor’s picks, you’ll be able to find something tasty to eat despite this restaurant’s tough reputation. And it’ll be more than just peanuts!

The Vegan Unlocked Research Team analyzed all 103 items on the Texas Roadhouse menu. We came away with two tasty custom creations and a few on-menu options.

Texas Roadhouse earns a 1.3/5 stars, putting it into the little to no vegan options category. It’s not the place for tofu and quinoa bowls but there’ll be a few options to choose from for hungry vegans passing through.

This score is calculated based on the amount of vegan offerings on Texas Roadhouse menu “as is” or with an easy substitution, a restaurant vegan customizability score and finally the amount of vegan options vs non-vegan options. Learn more about how Vegan Unlocked Ratings are calculated.

Secret Menu

Vegans are accustomed to cobbling together a vegan meal out of the options at hand, even when we end up at spots that are catered to meat-eaters. Just because a restaurant doesn’t have an established list of vegan menu items doesn’t mean there’ll be nothing for vegans to eat. Whether you need to change the sauce or sub out the cheese, it’s possible to create a meal for yourself that’s as satisfying as it is tasty!

Loaded Sweet Potato:

You know a delicious meal is coming when it starts with a sweet potato. Order a sweet potato, a side of sauteed mushrooms and a side of grilled onions. Top your potato with the mushrooms and onions and enjoy.

Extra Veggie Salad:

As yummy as the house salad is, it can use a little extra something. Order it with no egg, no cheese and no croutons, with olive oil and vinegar dressing. Get a side of buttered corn (no butter) and a side of steamed vegetables. Add your veggies and corn to the salad for an extra veggie meal.
