Fast food and vegan are two phrases we wouldn't say go hand in hand. Not only do meat and cheese seem to rule the brown-bag, on-the-fly food game, but we also don't always know what is being used to frying that stuff up. And up until this moment we were pretty certain that there wasn't a vegan option to be had at many favorite chains. Vegan and craving some Taco Bell? Fuggedaboutit. But fam, we were wrong.
It turns out, after a bit of digging, we were able to find meat- and dairy-free options from some of the top drive-thru spots across the nation (13 to be exact). Some are hacks, some are actual menu items, and many are viable meal options. From Subway, to Burger King, and even Dominos Pizza — customers have taken to Instagram and shared their #veganfastfood success stories — proving that with just a bit of curiosity and creativity you too can enjoy a hot batch of waffle fries. (Since many of these items are off-menu and certain chains say they can't guarantee items being free of allergens, anyone with food allergies should take extra precautions.)
