Nestled amidst the neon-lit extravagance of the Las Vegas Strip and the desert’s sprawling expanse, a quiet culinary revolution is underway. While Las Vegas has long been synonymous with glitz, glamour, and indulgence of every kind, there’s a burgeoning movement captivating the taste buds of locals and tourists alike – the rise of vegan cuisine.
Welcome to a world where succulent plant-based burgers rival the juiciest of steaks, moo-free desserts dazzle, and kaleidoscopic vegetable creations steal the spotlight.
I’d be lying if I said that I wasn’t surprised by the diversity and innovation of the plant-powered food scene in Las Vegas. I naively expected to be greeted with just a standard veggie burger and a bowl of boring salad, leaving unsatiated; instead, I found everything from sophisticated fine dining to absolutely addictive fast food eats.
So, get ready to go on an eating adventure from the iconic Strip to tucked-away neighborhood gems; I’ll help you find some of the best vegan restaurants in Las Vegas to stuff yourself silly and leave feeling like you won the vegan lotto!

Is Las Vegas a Good City for Vegans?
I might be just as surprised to write this as you are to read this, but Las Vegas is incredibly vegan-friendly! One thing you have to keep in mind is that there is more to Las Vegas than The Strip — most people come to Vegas and only visit this 4-mile stretch — if you do that, especially as a vegan, you will miss out! So far, I have found well over 20 fully vegan restaurants and plenty of vegan-friendly options peppered across Las Vegas — and according to locals, the options are growing (if that’s all too overwhelming there’s a vegan food tour you can take)!
The Best Vegan & Vegan-Friendly Restaurants on The Las Vegas Strip
When you look at the map, many of these places will appear pretty close to one another, but it’s a little misleading! A walk down The Strip isn’t a straight shot; it includes many stairs and bridges, and the properties themselves are massive and will always take you longer than you think. If you plan to walk often, I’d encourage you to visit outside the summer. The temperatures can be unbearable — I visited in August, and on countless jaunts, I gave up and got an Uber.
3335 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89109
Where is it? 4th floor of The Venetian
Holy smokes, I went on a wild adventure to find this place and now know The Venetian way better than I ever wanted to! So, to save you some trouble, when you arrive, head to the guest elevators and go to the 4th floor; this charming café isn’t in “restaurant row.”
This is the best vegan breakfast spot on The Strip— the watercolor cacti covering the walls, coupled with the laid-back vibe, will put you in a Zen state as you enjoy their healthy, veggie-powered menu packed with superfoods. You’ll find creative “feather-free” scrambles, adaptogenic lattes, and decadent coconut milk-soaked French toast in the morning. No worries if you don’t roll out of bed in time; the lunchtime fare is just as delicious with a feel-good mix of super green salads, house-made burgers, wraps, and more.
3000 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89109
Where is it? 1st floor of Resorts World
I’ve had the pleasure (seriously, it’s pleasurable) of dining at the beautiful Crossroads in LA, so when I came to Vegas, I knew I couldn’t miss an opportunity to dine at their newest location. The high ceilings with floor-to-ceiling red velvet drapes and crystal chandeliers set the tone for an exceptional dining experience. Like the LA location, executive chef Victor Rodriguez finds innovative ways to make you think twice about the flavor and versatility of veggies — squash blossom-topped pizza, mushroom scallops, eggplant steak, and much more.
In addition to the a la carte menu, you’ll also find chef’s tasting menus that celebrate the flavors of the seasons — crisp, sweet watermelon with the tang of feta, tender eggplant short ribs with earthy mushrooms, and truffle potatoes. You won’t find a dining culinary adventure like this in many places — it’s something to savor.
3000 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89109
Where is it? 1st floor of Resorts World
With one look at this retro ice cream parlor, you won’t be able to stay away and will be transported back in time to an era of wholesome sweetness and nostalgia. The menu board behind the old-fashioned marble counter lists various classic and inventive flavors, all vegan and house-made (cashew-based). From traditional, rich chocolate to decadent PB Krunch (peanut butter ice cream with chocolate chunks), can be enjoyed on their own, scooped in a chocolate-dipped waffle cone, or a decadent sundae topped with brownies, nuts, banana, hot fudge, whipped cream, and more. There are no wrong decisions here. Whatever you decide, slide into one of their vinyl turquoise booths or take a seat on their outdoor patio and enjoy every spoonful.
You can also find Craig’s Ice Creams at Whole Foods Market and select Fatburger and Johnny Rockets locations in Las Vegas.
#4 Nacho Daddy
3663, S Las Vegas Blvd #595, Las Vegas, NV 89109 (There are other locations in Vegas too)
Where is it? Miracle Mile Shops
At first, I thought there was no way a place called Nacho Daddy would be vegan-friendly! I mean, Nacho Daddy?! I am still laughing about the name, but this Tex-Mex restaurant on The Strip is very vegan-friendly — they have a full vegan menu. You can start with a creamy queso dip, then stuff yourself silly with a massive order of nachos covered in more of that delectable house-made queso or an order of crispy beer-battered avocado tacos! Here, you don’t have to settle for an order of sad black bean tacos or just chips and guac!
3730 Las Vegas Blvd S, Las Vegas, NV 89158
Where is it? ARIA Resort & Casino
Whether you’ve got an early morning (they open at 6 AM) or just need a nutrient-dense re-set, this is a terrific place to go! They are well known for their massive lineup of cold-pressed juices available in just about every kind of fruity and veggie combination you can think of — green juice lovers shouldn’t skip the Greens #3. On top of that, they also have multiple acai power bowl options topped with almond butter, bananas, fresh fruit, and more.
In addition to Pressed Juicery, you might also want to check out The Juice Standard (in the Cosmopolitan) or Juice Press (in the Bellagio); they both have smoothies and limited food options.
3131 Las Vegas Blvd S, Las Vegas, NV 89109
Where is it? The Wynn Las Vegas You won’t be disappointed starting your day at this charming breakfast and lunch café! Their vegan-friendly lineup includes favorites like a vegan huevos rancheros skillet with country potatoes, thick-cut French toast with coconut whipped cream, berry and veggie-packed smoothies, and more! The menu is well-marked and highlights multiple options that can be made vegan, and they offer Impossible sausage as an add-on!
3570 Las Vegas Blvd S, Las Vegas, NV 89109 (Hell’s Kitchen is just outside of Caesar’s Palace)
3667 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89109 (Burger joint is inside Planet Hollywood)
The fiery Gordan Ramsey has made quite the name for himself as a skilled chef and restauranteur but hasn’t also been an outspoken advocate of vegan cuisine — it’s actually been quite the opposite. But like with so many people, he has come around to the delicious benefits of plant-based cuisine, so I was thrilled to see that both restaurants have veggie options! Hell’s Kitchen has a more robust offering with a full vegan dinner menu.
#8 Din Tai Fung
3730 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89158
Where is it? ARIA Resort & CasinoIf you’re a lover of steamed dumplings and noodles, you’ll want to pencil in a stop at this vegan-friendly Taiwanese restaurant. You can’t go wrong with an order of their plump, green (thanks to spinach) dumplings filled with a careful balance of bean curd, baby bok choy mushrooms, and jicama or classic buns! Just about every section on their menu, from vibrant pan-fried veggies to Shanghai rice cakes, has a vegan option — this is a terrific place to go if you need to please a crowd and don’t want to be left with a sad mish-mash of side dishes!
3930 Las Vegas Blvd S Suite 120, Las Vegas, NV 89119
Where is it? Mandalay Bay Resort
I only expected to find a couple of vegan pizza options on the menu at this Mandalay Bay spot; imagine my surprise and delight (probably yours, too) when I saw a full vegan menu filled with appetizers, salads, sandwiches, pasta, pizza, PLUS dessert! I just kept scrolling and scrolling and finding more things to eat — woo hoo! On the pizza side of things, good luck deciding; they have nearly 20 different options covered with everything from plain ole cheese to a meatless lovers supreme! One more bonus: They also have a vegan and gluten-free crust!
#10 Park MGM
3770 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89109
I think some of the other vegan options on The Strip are heartier, but I was incredibly pleased to find that Park MGM created a page highlighting the vegan options at all of its restaurants — you don’t have to do any digging to find them! You’ll find everything from veggie fried rice at La La Noodle to eggplant schnitzel at Best Friend Korean BBQ.
Get Off The Strip — Can’t-Miss Vegan Restaurants in Greater Las Vegas
It would be beneficial to have a car in Vegas to visit some of the restaurants that aren’t near The Strip. If that’s not possible, Uber and Lyft are plentiful but can get really expensive, especially during peak times. I suggest checking the prices on both apps (sometimes one is cheaper) and traveling a little before or after rush hour. There is a small transit system (bus and monorail), but it’s not great off of The Strip.
#11 Graze Kitchen
7355 S Buffalo Dr Ste. 2, Las Vegas, NV 89113
If you’re only sticking to vegan restaurants on the Las Vegas Strip, you’ll miss out on terrific gems like this one!The modern and welcoming café has a comfort food-focused menu full of fresh flavors, from a house-made burger topped with remoulade and cheese to colorful bowls filled with beer-battered avocado and Korean BBQ soy curls.Make sure you pair your dish with a creative cocktail — for a boost of confidence, you can’t go wrong with their Hello Gorgeous (peach-rosewater puree, organic vodka, butterfly pea flower syrup, lime juice, and soda water).
7960 S Rainbow Blvd suite 8000G, Las Vegas, NV 89139
You’ll come for the pasta but won’t be able to leave without also trying their incredibly light and chewy house-made pizza and mouthwatering desserts, and I’m sure there will be a few other things that you just can’t leave without sampling. The family-run Italian restaurant opened its doors right before the start of the pandemic, which for many meant the end, but thankfully not for this spot. Once you shovel in a forkful of pasta covered in lemon garlic butter, I think you’ll understand why the community wanted to make sure this place kept going!
#13 The Modern Vegan
700 E Naples Dr #111, Las Vegas, NV 89119
If this spot was going for global meets all-American comfort eats but made it 100% vegan, they succeeded! The restaurant is unique — you might be expecting a retro diner, but it’s apparent from the graphic black and white wallpaper that frames high-back black vinyl booths that they’re going for a chicer vibe, but if you’re expecting an expansive menu that errs on the side of overwhelming, you’d be right! From breakfast to dinner, they’ve got you covered. Start the day with a golden maple syrup-covered Todd (Belgian waffle topped with bananas, chocolate chips, peanut butter, and chocolate), then wrap up the day with an innovative lobster stuffed portobello steak — the unique mix of melty cheese, herby citrus, with a little bit of brininess creates a unique fishiness that is difficult to find.
3565 S Rainbow Blvd Suite 110, Las Vegas, NV 89103
What do you get when a German with an IT background moves to Las Vegas? A vegan drive-thru deli, of course (I bet you didn’t see that coming)! Initially, the company started crafting incredible vegan meats and selling them to local shops. A cult following started to grow but didn’t fully take off until their debut at the Las Vegas vegan festival with their crowd-pleasing pulled pork sandwich. Shortly after their festival sell-out, they took over a former fast-food shop and created their popular deli spot (they also landed a spot on the Food Network show, “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives”) . Their menu hasn’t cut any corners, veganizing popular deli options — egg salad, tuna, cold cuts, and pastrami. Plus, it’s all vegan! I suggest you don’t skip the egg salad sandwich; the mix of chickpeas, tofu, turmeric, herbs, and sulfur salt is incredible, and the eggy flavor is nostalgic.
5570 W Flamingo Rd #110, Las Vegas, NV 89103
When you ask Las Vegans (there is seriously a group, I didn’t make it up) where to eat, more often than not, they’ll say Chef Kenny’s (they also really love NoButcher). I wish I had met the master chef behind the creation of some of these incredible veganized Asian favorites — egg custard buns, Kung Pao shrimp, orange chick’n, and much more! The menu deliciously melds together the savory flavors of traditional Chinese cuisine with an infusion of creative sushi filled with spicy tuna, jackfruit crab, and more. It all looks as incredible as it sounds — this isn’t the type of place to come a little hungry. Honestly, I wish I had skipped breakfast in preparation.
There are two locations in Las Vegas & one in Henderson
Although my visit to this vibrant Mexican hot spot was early in my Las Vegas vegan food tour, I fell in love after my first bite of Barbacoa — I could eat here for a week straight and not be disappointed! They’ve considered every detail, from the ultra-plush oversized green chairs to the fresh and fiery bites of cilantro and smokey mole — no corners were cut! While the name leads you to believe that tacos are the only name of their game, nothing could be further from the truth. You’ll find a massive lineup of loaded burritos, crispy flautas, quesadillas, and more. While I tell you that, you can’t leave without trying one of their innovative tacos — the slightly spicy chili braised jackfruit won my tastebuds over, but I am sad I missed their classic Birria tacos (I guess I will have to return).
#17 Saffron, The Vegetarian Eatery (it’s actually vegan)
3545 S Decatur Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89103
This sophisticated Asian spot hasn’t always been vegan, but a new chef came on board with creative plant-based ideas and pushed the vegan envelope. I guess you could say that the rest is history. This is a beautiful date night spot — under the dimly lit space; you’re greeted by a peaceful reflecting pool surrounded by vibrant crushed red velvet booths and intricately carved dark wood walls. It’s the perfect place to cozy up with that special someone over a bowl of spicy noodles. The menu weaves together Asia’s classic flavors and spiciness, which are deliciously highlighted in their plump mushroom Bao and Bang Bang cauliflower — two of the best dishes to kick off your dining experience.
3318 E Flamingo Rd. Suite D, Las Vegas, NV 89121
Drawing from the potential health benefits of Chaga (which actually isn’t a root), the team behind this colorful and creative café set out to create a menu of comfort fare that is secretly good for you! From their house-made burgers to trios of tacos, everything is made with whole foods ingredients and enhanced with the adaptogenic powers of Cordyceps, Lion’s Mane, Turkey Tail, Chaga, Maitake, and Reishi mushrooms! It’s a shroomy invasion (I don’t know about you, but that’s an invasion I can get behind). In addition to that, you don’t want to miss their specialty Mushies, a fun, health-focused take on a milkshake, of course, enhanced with good-for-you goodness.
#19 Veganos Kitchen
3149 N Rancho Dr C, Las Vegas, NV 89130
Come to this fast-casual Mexican eatery when you’re on the run and looking for something downright soul-fulfilling. They successfully veganized traditional eats like carne asada, machetes, tortas, and more! In addition to the delicious Mexican fare, they have some American junk food faves — pepperoni pizza, meatball sub, loaded French fries, and a small breakfast menu!
1310 S 3rd St #130, Las Vegas, NV 89104
Looking to hone your culinary skills and want to be delighted with a wide mix of vegan junk food and globally-inspired fare? Come here! This is a unique spot; I am not sure I’ve come across another culinary school/restaurant in all my eating adventures — it’s such a terrific idea! Throughout the week, you can roll in here and grab a variety of loaded burritos, giant sandwiches (the BBQ jackfruit is next level), deli, salads, and more! But, if you’re looking for something a little more fancy schmancy, pop in here Friday, Saturday, or Sunday night and check out their newest culinary venture, 18 Bistro. The menu features a ton of Italian inspiration — fettuccine alfredo, baked gnocchi, tiramisu, and much more.
#21 Garden Grill
7550 W Lake Mead Blvd Ste 8, Las Vegas, NV 89128
With one look at this mouthwatering menu, you can easily see why locals rave about this fast-food-inspired spot! Their menu features an eye-popping lineup of junk food favorites like French fries loaded with cheeze sauce, spicy buffalo chick’n sammies, beer-battered avocado tacos, and much more. I think Las Vegas is their only location, but I sure hope franchising is in their future!
7090 W Craig Rd Suite #120, Las Vegas, NV 89129
If you’ve ever thought that you wish there were a vegan fast-food spot that could rival the likes of Burger King and McDonalds, this is it! Like with Garden Grill, I hope they plan to franchise this magical cruelty-free spot nationwide! The menu is everything you could dream of and more — classic burgers, breakfast sandwiches, salads, chick’n tenders, oat-based soft-serve ice cream, and more! It is a little bit of a drive from The Strip/downtown area, but absolutely worth it.
7210 W Lake Mead Blvd #1, Las Vegas, NV 89128
Long gone are the days when vegan sushi was limited to just cucumber rolls. This vegan Japanese spot has taken staple ingredients like tofu, jackfruit, and avocado, creating colorful sushi masterpieces. It’s safe to say you will be disappointed the next time you have to order from the veggie sushi menu at a traditional spot. In addition to sushi, you can also devour bowls of piping hot ramen, Tonkatsu rice (pan-fried tofu skin), spring rolls, and more.
#24 Smash Me Baby
333 W St Louis Ave, Las Vegas, NV 89102
This unassuming vegan burger joint is tucked just off of The Strip in an industrial area by the Stratosphere. You might think you have the wrong address as you search for it — there isn’t a restaurant, just a ghost kitchen (something that became popular during the pandemic). You can order one of their famous burgers loaded with shaved truffles, grilled onions, house-made sauces, and more online or from a kiosk onsite. If you find yourself hungry late at night, this is also a fabulous option as it’s one of the few (maybe the only) vegan spots open till 1 AM!
#25 Eat the V
110 S Rainbow Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89145
It wouldn’t be Vegas if someone didn’t infuse a little sex appeal into their dining experience, right? This vegan spot tip-toes around being a little provocative to grab your attention and to check out its lineup of comfort fare — buffalo-covered cauliflower wings, Beyond burgers, fried shroom Po’boy, chick’n and waffle, plus much more.
#26 Veggy Street
Two locations in Las Vegas
I know not everyone loves the massive amount of vegan junk food options, but I do! I think it’s a fabulous way to show skeptics how delicious vegan food really is, and here’s another spot doing just that! This vegan fast-casual restaurant has a massive lineup of burgers and sandwiches covered in melty cheese and addictive sauces, along with fresh salads, mac-n-cheese, and more. Whatever you choose, leave a little room for their crowd-pleasing Dos Churros — two sugar-covered churros you dip in super creamy vanilla soft serve. It’s simple but delicious!
Mercado FC 3542, S Maryland Pkwy #6, Las Vegas, NV 89169
This family-run spot has creatively veganized many of Mexico City’s famous dishes and addictive flavors — with one bite, you’ll be over the moon in love. Many of the dishes use a unique mix of soy and veggie meats like soy-based asada or mushrooms and cactus, allowing visitors to customize their dish to their preference. While you can get tacos and burritos at many places around town, one vegan thing you’re not going to find anywhere else is the irresistible Pambazo, a golden torta dipped in tangy guajillo sauce, then grilled and filled with potatoes and chorizo, lettuce, cheese, and sour cream!
Bonus: Vegan-Friendly Bakeries & Sweets in Las Vegas
Looking for cakes, donuts, and sweets? Check out these spots!
4600 Spring Mountain Rd, Las Vegas, NV 89102
They have a fantastic variety of vegan donuts. A local shared with me that they are the best donuts she’s ever had!
Two locations in Las Vegas
Come here to make all of your cinnamon roll dreams come true! On top of frosting covered rolls, they also have brownies, cookies, and a few other sweet treats.
2862 S Durango Dr, Las Vegas, NV 89117
This ice cream parlor has a terrific lineup of vegan options and depending on when you visit you might find coffee chocolate chip, peanut butter Oreo, strawberry banana, and more.
Vegan & Vegan-Friendly Shops in Las Vegas
If you need to pick up snacks or just want to support an excellent vegan business, check out these shops!
1717 S Decatur Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89102 (located inside of the Fantastic Indoor Swap Meet)
This fantastic spot is trying to give bees a break with its unique blends of bee-free honey made from hibiscus, honeysuckle, lavender, and more.
3720 S Las Vegas Blvd # 250, Las Vegas, NV 89158
Stella McCartney is one of the few ultra-luxe designers who has sworn off animal products! Currently all of their bags are made from vegan leather and they’re working to eliminate silk.
6689 Las Vegas Blvd S, Las Vegas, NV 89119
If you need to stock up on snacks or smoothie supplies or forgot beauty products at home, this vegan-friendly market is the best place to go!
Vegan-Friendly Hotels in Las Vegas
Sadly, there isn’t a vegan hotel yet in Las Vegas, but there are a couple that will either put you in reasonable proximity to all of the veggie action or provide you with a small kitchen in case you want to prepare your own options or have somewhere to store leftovers!
One note: You will want to avoid The Mirage Hotel. Unfortunately, they haven’t gotten the memo that keeping wild animals captive is cruel. They have exhibits for tigers, lions, leopards, and dolphins.
5051 Duke Ellington Way, Las Vegas, NV 89119
If you’re not interested in staying on The Strip (but still nearby) and would like a small kitchen, stay here! I chose this spot because of its proximity to the Strip but also because it is small and doesn’t have a casino; in my mind, that meant cleaner and quieter, and I was right! All the rooms are suites, giving you more than enough room to spread out and relax. You also won’t get charged a pesky resort fee staying here (just about every hotel on The Strip does, and it can add up).
2600 W Harmon Ave, Las Vegas, NV 89158
This is a terrific spot if you want to stay on The Strip. This 5-star resort doesn’t have a casino, nightclub, or shopping plaza, but all of that is within easy reach. I had colleagues stay here for a conference, and they enjoyed it much more than some of the other options in the area.
