Fish Are Friends, Not Food: Vegan Food in Dallas/Fort Worth Airport

DFW airport

I recently went on a trip to Colorado to visit the wonderful Josh Taylor, who you may all know as the past WDWRadio blog writer for “The Walt Disney World That Never Was.” During my travels, I had a layover in Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW). The airport is huge, but has a pretty easy “monorail” shuttle to take you between terminals. This is a pretty common airport to layover in while waiting to catch flight to WDW or Disneyland Resort, so I made a note of some places I knew had vegan options and am really excited to share some with you!



  • You’ll find multiple Starbucks in each terminal of DFW. They of course offer organic Soymilk for all of their coffee drinks, but did you know they have some vegan food, too? This location actually had a vegan sandwich wrap and a chickpea salad (though the salad had honey, which isn’t technically vegan, but some vegans will eat honey.) Check out my past blog post about Starbucks for more vegan info.Chickpea Salad


Convenience Stores

  • Also in multiple locations – they had Fritos, BBQ Kettle Chips, Lays Salt & Vinegar and Original flavor chips, crackers, and Snap Pea crisps, along with lots of other junk-food that was “accidentally vegan.” Not ideal, but at least you wont be starving!


  • Their black beans are made vegan, so you can add those to a house salad with no croutons and add some balsamic vinegrette dressing, or put them in a pita wrap / flour tortillas with some veggies, guacamole, salsa picante, and pico de gallo!

TGI Friday’s

  • Get a salad with no meat, no cheese and ask to add avocado and black beans.
  • You can also do the same with the BBQ Chicken wrap – ask for no chicken, mayo, or ranch and flavor it up by adding sautéed onions and peppers and broccoli.
  • Ask for a plain baked potato and just add salt, pepper, and broccoli.
  • The fresh veggie medley is supposedly vegan, but be sure they don’t cook it in butter at this location!

Auntie Anne’s Pretzels: (order the following without butter)auntieannes

  • At Home Pretzel Kit
  • Cinnamon Sugar Pretzel
  • Garlic Pretzel
  • Jalapeño Pretzel
  • Original Pretzel
  • Raisin Pretzel
  • Sesame Pretzel

Of course, they have the typical McDonalds, Burger King, and Taco Bell, which you can read about in my past blog post.

These are just a few selections of vegan options located in the DFW terminals, but I hope it helps!
