Welcome to our vegan guide to TGI Friday’s! In this article you’ll find everything that’s vegan, vegetarian, plant-based, and dairy-free on the menu at this popular American restaurant. From the Beyond Burger to the vegan fries, chips and salsa to the steamed broccoli, you can certainly enjoy a basic meal as a vegan at TGI Friday’s.
When the end of a rough week rolls around, you might be dying for a delightful distraction by having dinner out instead of in. Sometimes stress can cause the very thought of deciding what to make for a meal more than you can bear. With that in mind, our guide to the TGI Fridays vegan options will certainly lend a helping hand.
While TGI Fridays is not known for its fresh and healthy food options, we’re relieved to reveal that they do have menu items for non-meat eaters. If you don’t mind just bearing with the basics, you’ll be fine. A vegan-friendly burger, fries, and a drink are more than some fast food restaurants feature.
There’s even a pasta and veggies variation for those who would rather forgo the fried foods. Not a super impressive option, but it’s still a serious cause for consideration—especially if you’re a plain pasta lover.

There aren’t a lot of options at this end-of-the-week eatery. Though this fact that makes it easier to grab your grub, it’s such a shame to have so few selections at a sit-down restaurant. But at least you can pick up a TGI Friday’s veggie burger with some simple swaps! Here’s what we suggest:
Or any combination of the two. It’s totally up to you.
Note: Both the avocado and salad dressing might not be available at all locations. Don’t forget to ask the server before ordering.
Note: They also offer vegan alcoholic beverages at most locations. Check Barnivore.com to make sure the option you’re choosing is vegan-friendly.
NOTE: The chips and fries are both made in the same frying oil as the animal products. If you don’t feel comfortable with this, you might want to skip on these items.
We fancy that TGI Fridays will quickly step up with more plant-based options since there is so much competition from other burger restaurants. Adding another vegan burger, a full-sized salad with vegan-friendly dressing, and more than three sides would certainly be nice. In the meantime, we can always write to, call, or contact the managers of any location to make our requests.
