Bareburger Keeps it Clean with their Half Vegan Menu


Updated in 2021! The founder of Bareburger, Euripides Pelekanos, knows that Americans love burgers, but we’ve also become more conscientious about our food. So he’s created a healthier comfort food chain that sources sustainable ingredients, and goes above and beyond for special diet needs. Each location prints any allergy concerns right on your ticket, and they updated their menu to be half vegan. Most of the non-vegan items at Bareburger can also be made dairy-free and/or gluten-free on request.

  1. I can see how it would be easy to miss in my writing, but it is restaurant “chain” – that’s great that there are some individual restaurants that serve both! I bet there are several vegan restaurants. That information is from an interview with the owner. But still edited.

  2. Just a little fact check; Bare Burger is NOT the only place that sells both the Beyond Burger and The Impossible Burger. You’ll find both of them at Marty’s V Burger plus the BYND Bratwurst and their own house brand of burger. I highly recommend checking them out.
