However if you're looking to order vegan at Whataburger, you'll find the salad menu to be the best option.

At first glance, the salad options at Whataburger are not exactly vegan as most come with cheese and chicken. However you can easily have them customized by removing the animal ingredients and adding from their selection of salad toppings like: Avocado, Grilled Peppers & Onions, Roasted Mushrooms, Green Chiles.

The vegan salad dressing options at Whataburger are limited to a Balsamic Vinaigrette and a Low-Fat Herb Vinaigrette. If you're looking for some extra items to add to your vegan meal, we suggest the French Fries or Hashbrowns but please be aware that they are fried in the same oil as animal products and therefore may be unsuitable for certain vegan diners.
