Vegan Pizza at Blackbird in Philly
The word “vegan” tends to bring to mind health food, clean living, yoga, and just about anything wholesome. But, as any vegan knows, there is plenty of deliciously deviant vegan junk food that you can find in diners, fast food joints and bars. Have a hankering for a fake-chicken wing dripping in spicy, butter-free buffalo sauce? We've got you covered. Below check out 8 great places around the country to indulge vegan-style.


  1. That's great -- thanks for posting this. I went vegan to not support factory farm cruelty, but try to keep it healthy, too. But sometimes you just want to tuck in to something indulgent. Unfortunately, none of these restaurants are here in Houston -- guess it's time for a vegan junk food road trip!

  2. Thanks so much for this guide to vegan junk food! While most people seem to think vegan = healthy, many of us vegans know otherwise! Us vegans got to indulge too! Love me some Chicago Diner!

  3. I've been to Watercourse. I wish it was closer though. I want to visit all of these!
