Chili's Vegan Menu

Chili’s is a popular casual dining restaurant with over 1,500 locations around the United States. It offers a tasty selection of burgers and sandwiches, steaks and sides, fried chicken and fajitas, and, of course, chili. If you’re wondering how to order vegan food at Chili’s, though, you’ll be faced with a fairly limited choice.


According to the restaurant’s online menu, there are 38 vegan items at Chili’s. However, most of these are sides, extras, and add-ons, meaning it can be difficult to create a full and satisfying meal.


In terms of appetizers, vegan options at Chili’s that we recommend include the bottomless tostada chips, either with salsa or fresh guacamole. If you go for the fried pickles as a starter instead, make sure you remember to ask for no ranch dressing, as this contains both egg and milk. As a main dish, the only real option available for vegans is the Caribbean salad without dressing—but you can swap in the citrus balsamic vinaigrette, which is suitable for vegans. 


The good news is that fries at Chili’s are also vegan, as are both types of BBQ sauce on the menu. If you’re not in the mood for fries, go for Mexican rice or roasted asparagus instead. You could also add avocado slices, fresh guacamole, pickles, or salsa to your food to give it a little extra flavor.
