Does Taco Bell Have a Vegetarian Menu?

Yes! Taco Bell actually has one of the biggest vegetarian menus in the fast food industry, made even bigger by its extensive customization options.

And when I say “big,” I’m not talking about a couple hundred menu options. There are more than eight million possible vegetarian combinations you can create—a truly jaw-dropping number!

Apart from the vegetarian-exclusive menu options, all items at Taco Bell can be made vegetarian-friendly by substituting or removing ingredients. Menu items with meat, for example, can easily be substituted with beans.

How to Order As a Vegetarian at Taco Bell

Taco Bell has a generous selection of vegetarian options, so you’ll find no shortage of menu items to order. Here are some tips to make the process easier:

  1. Taco Bell’s vegetarian offerings are marked with a green “V” symbol.
  2. When ordering, be clear and specific about your dietary preferences. If the item you ordered isn’t included in the vegetarian section, ask the staff to omit the meat and add beans or veggies in its place.
  3. Make your dish vegan by asking the staff for a “Fresco Style” order. Fresco Style removes dairy products and replaces them with vegetables, usually tomatoes, at no extra cost.
  4. To maximize the nutritional value of a vegetarian meal, combine side dishes like beans, vegetables, and rice.


Is Taco Bell good for vegetarians?

I wouldn’t necessarily call Taco Bell “good” for vegetarians—they’re not exactly what I’d consider healthy due to their cheesy, fried, or indulgent nature.

However, it’s an excellent option for vegetarians looking for quick and satisfying fast food on the go. Taco Bell offers dozens of meat-free menu items, so you’ll have plenty of options to choose from.

Does Taco Bell serve vegan items?

Taco Bell’s vegan options aren’t as extensive as its vegetarian options, as plenty of Taco Bell’s offerings contain cheese, eggs, and other animal by-products.

That said, many of its vegetarian items can be customized to be vegan by omitting dairy products like cheese and sour cream.

When ordering at the counter, ask the staff to make your dish “Fresca Style,” meaning made with sour cream, cheese, and other dairy. In its place, you can add guacamole, diced tomatoes, onions, potatoes, or seasoned rice.

Is Taco Bell’s vegetarian menu halal?

Taco Bell primarily serves beef, chicken, and other meat products, so there’s always a possibility of cross-contamination in the preparation area. Taco Bell outlets in the United States aren’t certified halal.

What’s the healthiest vegetarian food at Taco Bell?

The healthiest vegetarian food at Taco Bell is the Veggie Power Bowl, followed by the Fiesta Veggie Burrito. Both options contain between 400 to 500 calories and approximately 13 to 14 grams of protein.

They feature fresh ingredients such as black beans, tomatoes, onions, and guacamole. They’re normally served with cheese and sauces, but those can be omitted to make the meal healthier.

Final Thoughts

Taco Bell offers a range of vegetarian options that cater to diverse tastes and preferences. With the ability to customize orders to your heart’s content, you’ll always find a vegetarian dish that fits your preferences.

Not all items are equally nutritious, though, so keep your eye on the nutritional value and calorie content of each food item.

The Veggie Power Bowl and the Fiesta Veggie Burrito are often considered the healthiest, but make sure to omit the cheese and sauces to control the amount of added fats and calories in your meal.
