People with dietary restrictions often struggle when it comes to being able to find food to suit their needs while on the go. And while eating at home is best for a number of reasons, we all need options for those busy days and nights, right?
If you’re a non-meat – or even a vegetarian – you have a few options.
Here are the best ones at a fast food restaurant likely near you.
It was Carl’s Jr. They had previous hits like Beyond BBQ Cheeseburger and Beyond Spicy BBQ Cheeseburger, and now they’re coming out with the classic Beyond Cheeseburger that’s sure to please.
However, I hope the barbecue comes back sooner rather than later.
This is the first Impossible product to be approved by a chain nationwide, and its success means that it remains a part of the list.
You can get it literally from any Burger King in the country, and it’s really hard to tell the difference between it and a regular Whopper.
What more could you ask for?
Freddy’s is all about the throwback, so no one should be surprised that they go with their regular black bean burger as a vegetarian option.
The ingredients are top quality, so even though this burger doesn’t have any frills, it provides flavor—and the Thousand Island sauce doesn’t hurt anything either.
If you love a good belly bomb, there’s no reason you wouldn’t love this impossible option topped with smoked cheddar cheese mashed with pickles and grilled onions between their classic bread.
Some sites even serve it with dairy-free cheddar cheese!
If you love Sausage McMuffin, why not grab this alternative with some delicious coffee, too?
As another bonus, Dunkin’ will deliver this egg, cheese, and sausage delight any time of day—same deal with the Southwest Veggie Power Breakfast Sandwich, which features black bean pancake, omelette, and white cheddar.
If you’re a dairy fan – or dairy is against you – there’s no reason why you can’t enjoy ice cream. Dairy Queen joins brands like Ben & Jerry’s, Haagen-Dazs, Breyers and more in serving ice cream made with almond milk, coconut milk, and more – this non-dairy Dilly Bar is made with coconut milk.
It is free from dairy and gluten products.
While you can’t call this beef gluten-free in every Quizno in the country, you should definitely try the sammie (or wrap) if it’s available – paired with French-Swiss sauce, pickles, sauerkraut, and honey, I doubt you’ll be able to tell the difference!
Fun fact: The medium is from Mrs. Goldfarb’s Unreal Deli, a Shark Tank winner.
Everyone deserves a great taco, no matter your dietary restrictions, and Del Taco joins forces with Taco Bell in introducing more and more vegetarian options across the country.
They use beyond meat in a layered burrito, a classic taco, as well as some enlarged versions, so listen up—please indulge in Taco Tuesday.
Starbucks won’t be lifted once, so you can get a Beyond Meat sausage pie on a handmade bun, plus eggs and cheese, at restaurants in Canada.
If you’re a US customer, your sandwich will contain the impossible sausage instead. I think they just love mixing it up – and of course, they have plenty of milk alternatives that make your coffee dairy-free, too.
Even if you eat meat and dairy but are looking to cut back, some of them seem good enough to eat!
