Wingstop is a chicken-wing restaurant with an aviation theme. Like most chicken-wing restaurants, it doesn’t have a ton of options for us vegans. That said, there are a few plant-based sides you can order.
Here are the vegan options at Wingstop:
- Seasoned fries
- Cajun fried corn
- Veggie sticks
- Soft drinks
- Most of the flavors (but not the dips)
Below, I’ll get into a bit more detail about what each of these menu items actually are, and which specific flavors are vegan, too!
Wingstop Vegan Menu
The Wingstop vegan menu is pretty short. But you could fill up on it if you really wanted to.
1. Seasoned Fries
Fries are usually vegan, and this is the case at Wingstop, as well.
Wingstop’s fries aren’t just covered in salt, though. They’ve got a “Fry Seasoning” that gives them a bit more flavor.
2. Cajun Fried Corn
This vegan side features corn-on-the-cob, which is broken into pieces and seasoned with their Fry Seasoning in combination with their Cajun Seasoning.
3. Veggie Sticks
Chopped up carrots and celery! Now that’s a wholesome meal. Unfortunately, it won’t fill you up very much. But you can at least get some micronutrients in.
4. Soft Drinks
Wingstop mainly has Coca-Cola products. Depending on the specific location, you’re likely to see these drinks, all of which are vegan (to my knowledge):
- Diet Coke
- Coke Zero
- Dr. Pepper
- Fanta (Orange and Strawberry)
- Minute Maid Lemonade
- Lipton Tea
- Nestea Tea
- Gold Peak Tea
5. Dips & Flavors
Wingstop has “Dips” and “Flavors.” Technically none of the Dips are vegan—there’s only 3 and they all contain dairy. But most of the Flavors are vegan!
Here’s a list of the vegan Flavors at Wingstop:
- Mango Habanero
- Original Hot
- Spicy Korean
- Louisiana Rub
- Hickory Smoked BBQ
- Lemon Pepper

Are the Baked Rolls at Wingstop Vegan?
Wingstop’s baked rolls are not vegan. They contain milk as an ingredient, as noted on the Wingstop allergen info page.
Whole-Food Plant-Based Options?
When looking at fast-food restaurants, you’re mostly going to find unhealthy options. Even the vegan menu is usually full of fried food.
While I think it’s fine to indulge in some fast-food junk on occasion, I also find it interesting to ask a follow-up question: What would the WFPB menu look like?
At Wingstop, they really only have one WFPB option: Veggie sticks! This dearth of whole-food options is common in fast-food, but at least they have one whole-food option at Wingstop.
Wingstop Allergen Information
If you’re looking for more allergy info on Wingstop’s offerings, they have a pretty concise allergen info page.
When it comes to milk and eggs, here’s the quick list:
