VeganXpress also features a full list of vegan / vegetarian beers, wine, liquor, snacks, candy and foods that you may not have realized were vegan.
Vegans often find themselves looking for a place to eat with non-vegan friends, family or coworkers, and the search can be somewhat difficult. While the population of vegans is growing, most restaurants do not specify which menu items are vegan. This app lists over 130 very common restaurants and their menu items suitable for the vegan diet. Whether you’re on a road trip, in a hurry, or looking for a place to eat with family or friends, you will be able to quickly find vegan options.

I was excited to see this app. Helps take the guess work out of what to order at restaurants and bars. However, I paid $1.99 for this app due to a friend's comment telling me I had to have it. Well, I'm very disappointed to see that this hasn't been updated in over a year. Too bad, because I really like the app. Waste of money though because some of these restaurants don't offer these vegan options anymore.
This app is a must for all vegans. I wish they'd organize their wine list differently but other than that, this app has always worked perfectly for me.
I wouldn't buy this app again. The majority of the menus I've looked at have like 2 options on them (some with options that don't exist), some big chain restaurants aren't on the list and as a whole it just needs updating. Don't bother.
Haven't had issues yet, app has been helpful. I hope the developer keeps up with future menu changes because this app is very helpful
I downloaded this app because I was super excited about having a Vegan food guide & after agreeing to pay for it and downloading it I received an error upon opening it that wouldn't let me open the app. I contacted the creator of this app and he told me that he didn't have any other issues with other users & to try deleting, rebooting & downloading again. I had the same results, so he told me to request a refund from iTunes support. I don't think it's my phone as I've not had any other issues with other app's I've downloaded. I'm disappointed that I can't use this app, and the response from the creator has implied that it's either my phone or user error that's causing this lack of functionality.
Mc Donald's puts beef fat in the fries so how do you know really what you're getting? It's been a huge headache for me but this app really makes things easier by letting you know what's vegan and what's not. Granted a lot of menu items are not listed but that's because we live in a world full of death but at least it tells you what is available so you can order a 7 layer from say Taco Bell and tell them no meat, cheese, or sour cream. Blame the companies for lack of vegan items not this app! Well worth the price to download now to find a makeup version.
Just downloaded it. It's basically a list of a restaurants with a list of what's vegan. It doesn't have restaurants that are in your state only, but it has the popular food chains that are found in the US as well as alcohol lists by alphabetical order so say you wanna know if Jack Daniels is vegan you'd go to the J section and once clicked it'll say vegan or non vegan. It also includes a list of vegan snacks & candy & food in alphabetical order. For the price it's not bad! 8/10.
The developer keeps changing the app for the worse. The alcohol-related sections no longer tell you which alcohols are NOT vegan, meaning you have to search half of them online to see if they aren't on the list because they aren't vegan or because Barnivore (the source) doesn't know them yet. (Same goes for certain restaurants, like Starbucks. The list gives the impression that all the Frapps are vegan, but the light ones are not and neither are many of the drizzles. Explaining that, especially for such customizable restaurants, is part of the purpose of the app.) Another problem is the way sections are organized. The wines are listed by letter and then by country, which is awkward. A search bar within each category would make more sense. Until this all gets fixed, don't buy the app. You won't use it.
I travel all around the country for work, and while I would prefer to eat at a gourmet vegan restaurant every day, nine time out of ten that is not an option. This app allows me to get a general idea of the vegan options at places that are available all over the country. A must have for any vegan who ventures away from home or has to go to fast food restaurants with family/friends/coworkers. Thanks VeganXpress!
This app has been so helpful throughout my transition into veganism. It makes it so easy to go out and eat at restaurants that are not 100% vegan and tells you what you can eat there. I love it ! Thanks!
This app was incredibly useful for the occasional times I was stuck eating at a terrible chain or had to pick up fast food and needed to know what I could eat that was vegan. The latest update has reduced the functionality of this app dramatically. If you want to quickly scroll down to a specific restaurant that is further down in the alphabet you'll have to flick your finger incessantly instead of merely clicking to the right side of the list onto a specific letter. Additionally, I've had a couple of experiences trying to check what's available at a restaurant and no data will load. When in a pinch and needed to know what I can order, it can be quite frustrating to not be able to load the restaurant data. Otherwise this is a great and useful app for the people eating vegan out there in the world and the work done by its developer is greatly appreciated.
I liked this app before the latest update because I don't have a data plan, but now you need one. So it's pretty useless. They should allow the user to download the dbase for offline use.
This is a very handy app to have on the go. Most vegans have their safe places to eat out, but when you travel or are in unfamiliar territory, it is nice to see if the places around have an option. While all of this information can be found from websites, this app puts it at your fingertips. While traveling the only option was a Cracker Barrel and we were able to look and see that we could eat something there and even know what foods to order special (without butter or sauce.) The addition of Barnivore data is awesome so when shopping for wine, I am able to make informed choices.
In response to the comment about a cheese omission being obvious-while this is true, if the items were NOT listed this way, we might not order them correctly and then they would come with cheese when we took the item to be vegan. Yes, it is true that if you want to make sure you should ASK but this app gives us a place to start. Do I eat at these places regularly? Hell no! Not when I live in Philadelphia and Los Angeles, home to some of the most amazing vegan restaurants...but does it help me on the road, outside of an urban area, or out to dinner with family at a chain (olive garden) type place? ABSOLUTELY! I use it more than I thought. I usually don't eat at these places but it has helped when I have no choice.
Normally I don't eat at these restaurants, for obvious reasons, but for those times when it's about someone else (birthday or other special event dinner) or just stuck with no options, this is perfect. I think some of the people who gave this a low rating might be missing the point, it's not about telling you where the best vegan food is, it's helping you survive in very not-vegan environments.
I agree, I do not believe all these things to be vegan. Some even had cheese in the title. It is stupid to list something with dairy as vegan, we can all figure out that omitting the cheese would make it vegan. This apps is suppose to be about what is vegan with having to change it or make omissions. Also, Not all panera bagels are vegan, they contain l-cystine which is usually an animal protein used as a dough conditioner. Do your research, save your money!
This app is SOOO helpful! I love the list of restaurants and what you can order from them. WORTH IT!!!!
I don't know any vegans that eat junk food or tons of processed foods, but that is what this app is all about. If you want your diet to consist of twizzlers and chips then buy this app. I do not believe that all items are listed are vegan, certainly not what I believe to be vegan.
Never thought about whether or not Chuck E. Cheese or Dairy Queen would have anything edible. This will come in handy when meeting people away from the office for sure!
Very handy needs more resturants and food on it but it's great quick reference knowing what's vegan
