Vegan and Vegetarian Restaurants in the Dallas Fort Worth Area

Restaurants, Caterers, and Other Resources for Special Dietary Needs

You don't have to be a vegetarian or vegan to enjoy the food. The DFW has a number of delicious dining options for you. Can you find veggie-friendly options if you live in Cowtown? I'll help you find some here.

I'm certainly not a vegetarian/vegan but I do enjoy the food. As the daughter of a Texas rancher, I'm stepping out to sample all the great foods DFW has to offer. And then some.

Many in DFW live and love the vegetarian/vegan lifestyle. Trust me, there's more to it than just ordering some bean and cheese nachos or a salad. While most restaurants offer vegetarian/vegan options, here is a list of full-fledged veggie-only restaurants and helpful ​resources. Step out from your carnivorous box and try something new (and healthy) today! I was blown away by how flavorful the veggie tacos were at Cosmic Cafe in Dallas when I sampled them. I would totally order them again. Soon.

Let's start with the lingo:

Vegan: Restaurant is completely vegan. (Excludes meat, eggs, dairy products and all other animal-derived ingredients).

Vegetarian: Restaurant is completely vegetarian, with a good number of vegan-friendly options.

Fort Worth Vegetarian Society

This group started as the vegetarian connection for Fort Worth back in 1992. Max and Grace Girouard actually started the group by putting an article in the Fort Worth Star Telegram looking for vegetarians in the area. Steve and Cindy Hader were some of the first to join in the fun. Cindy said that Vegetarian and Vegan lifestyles have changed and grown and so has the group. It's very informal. Check out the website for recipes, information on dining out, how to meet another vegetarian in your area, potlucks and more. Receive emails with helpful info including events, restaurants and more.
