Americans know that no matter where you are, Denny’s is the spot for late-night hangs or to refuel on a road trip in the middle of nowhere. Diners may not be the first place you think of when you’re seeking plant-based food, but there’s actually a lot of vegan food at Denny’s. Check out the options:

Build Your Own Burger with Veggie Patty

Build Your Own Burger (comes with lettuce, tomato, red onions, and pickles)

Choose the brioche or whole wheat bun and the veggie patty (it’s vegan!). To make it a double, order an extra patty for $1.50. Skip the cheese and choose from these toppings: grilled onions, sliced jalapeños, fresh avocado, sautéed mushrooms, barbecue sauce, bourbon sauce, ketchup, and mustard.

So there you have it. The next time your stomach is rumbling at 1 a.m., go find that warm glow of the familiar yellow sign and feast on all that tasty vegan food at Denny’s!
