What Are the Vegan Options at BurgerIM? (2021)

BurgerIM is pretty good for us vegans. They don’t only have one vegan burger—they have two! I mean, sure, the selection of sides could be better… And the lack of ingredients online makes it hard to plan your meal completely. But two kinds of vegan burgers! I can’t complain.

Vegan options at BurgerIM:

  • Impossible Burger (No Cheese)
  • Falafel Burger
  • BurgerIM Fries
  • Sweet Potato Fries
  • House Salad
  • Beverages

Below, I’ll share more about how to order these items vegan—especially for the Impossible Burger. I’ll also take a look at the whole-food plant-based options at BurgerIM.

BurgerIM Vegan Menu

The following vegan menu was compiled with the help of the menu, FAQ, and other information on the BurgerIM website.

Restaurant menus change and often vary by location. I recommend double checking any important information with staff at your location!

1. Impossible Burger (No Cheese)

Yes, BurgerIM has the Impossible Burger! In fact, they allow you to substitute an Impossible Burger patty into any of their burger options for an extra $2.99. So there are various options.

To make your Impossible Burger vegan, be sure to order it with “No Cheese,” and ask about the other toppings. I was unable to confirm whether the BurgerIM house sauce is vegan—but usually, such “house sauces” contain egg (because mayo contains egg)—so be careful.

For the bun, I heard from one source that their gluten-free bun is vegan, along with the lettuce wrap. But again, I was unable to confirm this, so you may want to check at your location.

Pro Tip: You can add avocado to your burger for $0.99! Or add the following vegan toppings for free: Pineapple, Jalapenos, Sauteed Onions, Sauteed Mushrooms, Red Cabbage.

Just as a side note—before they had the Impossible Burger, BurgerIM used to offer a “Veggie Burger” made of lentils, tofu, veggies, and egg.

I think they stopped making that “Veggie Burger” since they got the Impossible Burger. But just a heads up: If you see a “Veggie Burger” on the menu, don’t assume it’s vegan. Ask about eggs.

2. Falafel Burger

If you’re not a fan of the Impossible Burger, you have another vegan burger option at BurgerIM! Just get the Falafel Burger!

This burger comes with a big 1/4 pound falafel patty, topped with tahini, lettuce, pickles, onion, and tomato. It should come vegan as is. But I’d double check to be sure they don’t add dairy or anything.

BurgerIM seems to be pretty aware of what is vegan in their menu, so I would just ask to confirm about the bun and toppings.

3. BurgerIM Fries

BurgerIM has some pretty unique fries. They look more like potato chips—but the texture is closer to fries. Really neat, and kudos to them for doing something original.

These should be vegan, but they are likely fried in the same oil as the fried chicken. So if that concerns you, then I’d ask about the fryer set up and the oil used at your location.

4. Sweet Potato Fries

Another fry option! The BurgerIM website lists these as a healthy alternative to fries. I’m not so sure about that—sweet potato fries are still fried food. But anyway, they are delicious. And they come in a more normal fry shape, in case you don’t want round fries!

5. House Salad

It looks like the BurgerIM House Salad comes vegan as is: Lettuce, diced tomatoes, cucumbers, and onions—served with balsamic dressing.

You might want to ask to make sure there’s no cheese and no croutons added at your location—but it looks like those are generally not part of the mix.

6. Beverages

  • Coca-Cola
  • Diet Coke
  • Fanta
  • Sprite
  • Schweppes
  • More Coke Products

My local BurgerIM also has boba tea, and I’m guessing their Boba Tea Fruit Teas would be vegan. But you’d have to ask at your location to confirm if they are and which flavors.

Whole-Food Plant-Based Options

What if you’re not just vegan but also trying to avoid processed foods? Can you get a whole-food plant-based (WFPB) meal at BurgerIM? To me, that means no processed sugar, oil, or flour.

The only WFPB option would be the house salad. You could perhaps get them to add some avocado or other additional ingredients to bulk it up a bit.

But both of the vegan burger options (Impossible Burger and Falafel Burger) contain processed oils, so they’re not WFPB. And the fries aren’t, of course.
