You can always get fries at burger places. It didn’t take me long however to get a tired of McDonald’s fries when I was out and about doing pediatric home-based therapy, and looking for food without meat. Some burger restaurants offer onion rings. Of the major burger chains, only Burger King offers a veggie patty. Most burger chains now carry salads, and some offer fruits, smoothies, pies and such. If you’re actually looking for a Veggie Burger, one of your best bets is Red Robin.

BurgerKing: In addition to fries, you can get onion rings, apple fries, Dutch Apple Pie, Hershey’s Sundae Pie, shakes, frozen Coke, and frozen Cherry from Burger King. They also offer a Garden Salad.
No veggie burger at McDonald’s, but they offer a variety of salads. Choose from Caesar Salad, Southwest Salad (roasted corn, black beans, poblano peppers, and tortilla strips), Asian Salad (snow peas, mandarin oranges, edamame), Side Salad, or Fruit & Walnut Salad (apples, grapes, candied walnuts, and vanilla yogurt). For your sweet tooth, McDonald’s has countless options: McCafe ice coffees and lattes, smoothies, sundaes, shakes, McFlurries, cookies, baked apple pie, and apple dippers.
Although I had been to RedRobin Gourmet Burgers before, I was not looking for vegetarian options at the time. A friend recently turned me on to this tidbit: You can order any burger at Red Robin’s with a Gardenburger or BOCA Burger patty! Menu selections vary by location, but you can count on at least 10-12 burger variations with vegetarian or vegan patty. I have overviewed choices available in my area Red Robin restaurants.
The Garden Burger: Lettuce, tomato, pickles, and Country Dijon Sauce on a whole grain bun.
Whiskey River BBQ Burger: Whiskey River BBQ sauce, cheddar, crispy onion straws, lettuce, tomato, and mayo.
