In 2018, Shake Shack tested a new veggie burger in select restaurants, and this addition is super easy to order vegan. Hopefully it stays on the menu in 2019 and makes its way to all Shake Shack locations. 🍔
The Veggie Shack is made with black beans, brown rice and roasted beets topped with provolone cheese, lettuce, tomato, onions, pickles and vegan mustard mayo. While the burger is technically vegetarian, it can be made entirely vegan by asking them to remove the cheese and substitute a gluten free bun or lettuce wrap for the regular bun, which contains dairy.
“Shake Shack has always been about creating a community gathering place through our American roadside – inspired fare and special brand of hospitality. We couldn’t be more thrilled to extend both to the vegetarian and vegan community with the Veggie Shack!” said Culinary Director, Mark Rosati in a press release. “We wanted to create a sandwich that was thoughtful in the way we approached the ingredients and flavors, as well as was fun and delicious to eat. We hope our guests will love it as much as we do!”
I had The Veggie Shack in NYC after a Brooklyn Nets game and wow it was delicious. This is a great vegan option after catching a show or game at Barclays Center. Just remember to ask for the vegan option with no cheese and on a lettuce or gluten-free & dairy-free/vegan bun, and you’re all set.

I don’t like the taste and texture of portobello mushrooms, so I never had an interest in trying Shake Shack’s vegetarian option called the Shroom Burger. But now that they offer a different vegan patty, I think I’ll be back again.
Have you tried The Veggie Shack yet?
