Zagat Spotlights Eight Vegan Junk Food Joints

The food site names the nation’s top places to enjoy some major nosh.

Zagat recently compiled a list of eight tasty eateries that do vegan junk food best. Kicking off the list is The Chicago Diner, celebrating its 30th anniversary this year and serving up its famous BBQ Bacun Cheezeburger. DC’s Sticky Fingers made the list thanks to its tuna melt with tempeh bacon, and Austin’s Arlo’s (an all-vegan food truck offering chicken strips and veggie crumble tacos), along with San Francisco’s Bender’s Bar are among the eight on the mouthwatering list.
