Cowtown has a long tradition of offering fine steak dinners and some of the best BBQ in Texas. But it also has delicious vegan and vegetarian restaurants that make it easy to get your daily servings of veggies. Put a plant slant in your diet with these nine Fort Worth restaurants.


For years, Spiral Diner and Bakery has been serving vegan takes on comfort classics like nachos, pasta with non-meatballs, and even ice cream. Since the early 2000s, Spiral’s been on the corner of Magnolia Avenue and in 2023 the owners of the vegan lunch and dinner spot launched two new vegan restaurants, both on the same block. Dreamboat Donuts and Scoops offers donuts and breakfast sandwiches along with unbelievable vegan ice cream and soft serve. Maiden Fine Plants and Spirits is their take on vegan fine dining, with excellent wine pairings and a beautiful bar if you just want a drink and a nosh.


Belenty’s Love near TCU addresses the question: Can you enjoy plant-based Mexican food? Thanks to soy products, veggies, and vegan cheese, the answer is absolutely. Mariachi’s Dine-In off of Camp Bowie also answers the plant-based Mexican food question with a traditional and plant-based menu that features jackfruit birria and grilled veggies along with the meat substitutes.


Flower Child near the Fort Worth Zoo offers vegan bowls with spicy sweet potato noodles and salads that can be modified with the help of vegan dressings.


HG Sply Co. can prepare almost anything on their extensive brunch, lunch, and dinner menus gluten-free or vegan. Some of the choices include a spicy vegan cashew queso, carrot hummus, deviled avocado stuffed with chickpea “tuna” salad, and a quinoa burger or quinoa meatballs.


Righteous Foods isn’t specifically vegan but much of their menu is vegetarian based and can be made vegan with a few twists. They’re also nice enough to have a special dietary restrictions menu on the website so you can get some ideas in advance.


The Vegan Sweet Spot in Arlington Heights offers sweet treats, milkshakes vegan tacos and wraps.


Finally, if you want to put more fiber-containing fruits and veggies on your plate, visit the Fort Worth Farmer’s Market or the Cowtown Farmers Market, where you’ll find locally or regionally grown produce.
