The stars of most sandwich shops are the deli meats, and Jersey Mike's is no different. Although the majority of its menu is not vegan-friendly, customers can still piece together their own plant-based creation. Add in vegan chips and a drink, and you've got a satisfying cruelty-free lunch.

There are a couple of important notes to keep in mind—namely, that Jersey Mike's white bread, the most common choice among customers, is not vegan-friendly. Fear not; other plant-based bread options prevail. Here, we reveal all of Jersey Mike's vegan menu items.

Our Top Picks

The plant-based sandwich combinations are endless, but these two modified originals might just become your go-to's.

Grilled Portabella Mushroom and Swiss (Hold the Swiss)

This hot sub raises the bar on meatless options. After omitting the cheese, it is still a rich and earthy sandwich featuring portabella mushrooms, green bell pepper, grilled onions, and an olive oil blend dressing. Order on wheat or seeded Italian bread.

The #14 (The Veggie, No Cheese)

Hold the cheese again, and you're left with a light, crunchy sandwich filled with lettuce, tomato slices, onion, green bell pepper, oregano, olive oil blend dressing, red wine vinegar, and salt. Order on wheat or seeded Italian bread. Any toppings can be modified or swapped out for others.
