We know what you're thinking: "We have the meats" is not the most encouraging slogan for vegan eaters. Luckily, Arby's does offer a handful of tasty plant-based snacks and sweets on the menu. Our Top Picks While there's not a lot to choose from on the main meal menus, our favorite snacks suffice. Arby's Curly Fries Vegans don't have to sacrifice their fries at Arby's. The signature seasoning that makes it so popular consists of onion powder, garlic powder, and a secret mix of other spices—no non-vegan extras to worry about. Treehugger Tip Check with your location to ensure your fries are cooked in a separate fryer away from any animal products. Fruit Turnovers A sweet spot for vegans on the Arby's menu! These hot, pie-like desserts come in apple and cherry. We consider this an accidental vegan option, but we'll take what we can get. Vegan Breads Arby's doesn't advertise a build-your-own sandwich station, and there are no vegan handhelds on the menu. But if you're considering piecing a light sandwich together, the following breads are vegan.

After removing all of the meats, cheeses, and non-vegan dressing, you are left with a barebones, lettuce-and-tomato dish. Ask if any other veg can be thrown on, like red onion or banana peppers. Vegan Sides Arby's sides are the main vegan attraction for vegans. The fries in particular provide an excuse to try out some of the plant-based dips available.
