Whether you’re craving a classic dog or something a bit more innovative, these vegan handhelds are worth relishing.
With baseball season in full swing, it’s only natural to crave one of those hot dogs from the concession stand. Thanks to brands like Field Roast and Beyond Meat, it’s possible to enjoy plant-based renditions of the ballpark classic (as well as more unique flavor combos). Here’s where to get vegan hot dogs in Los Angeles!
There are a lot of things that Beelman’s does well, and their hot dogs are one of them! When you stop by this all-vegan pub, the menu welcomes you with two stellar hot dog options. The first is the Classic Vance, a pretzel bun that’s topped in a Field Roast frankfurter, mustard, sauerkraut, and house-pickled jalapeños. Your second option is the Banh Dog, a pretzel bun filled with a Field Roast frankfurter, pickled veggies, cilantro, and sriracha mayo. Option 3? BOTH!
The plant-based hot dogs from this vegan joint will rock your world! The VDog and VDog Caliente both come with mustard, onions, and relish. So what’s the difference? One contains the original Beyond Meat sausage and the other holds the spicy one—we’ll let you guess which is which! You can also “work your dog” to add cheese, chili, guacamole, mac ‘n’ cheese, or vegan scrambled eggs.
The Dirty Dog from this comfort food hot spot comes with a Beyond Meat sausage link, fried egg, cheese, bacon, grilled onions, sriracha, and house-made garlic aioli. And yes, it’s ALL vegan! Craving something more on the classic side? The Old Fashioned dresses a Beyond Meat sausage link in ketchup, mustard, relish, and diced onions.
Take a break from your traditional hot dog bun to enjoy Veggietize Me’s Deluxe V-Link in a pretzel bun. On top of the soft and salty carby carrier, you’ll find a Beyond Meat sausage link, cheese, vegan bacon, smoky tempeh, chopped onions, ketchup, mustard, and mayo. How epic does that sound?

What’s a sports bar without a hot dog on the menu? Put Me In Coach has three different dogs—two are the classic bun-bound Chicago and chili cheese varieties, the third is a corn dog. While you’re there, we’d recommend ordering the Tacos Dorados and Buffalo Boneless Wings, too!

Healthy Junk hits it out of the park with their Bunny Brats. The plant-based hot dogs can be enjoyed with “chili & pickles,” “sauerkraut, onions, & kale,” or “peppers & onions” on top. Whichever ingredient combo you choose, be sure to save room for a side of french fries or coleslaw!

Ketchup, mustard, pickles, sauerkraut, onions, chili, vegan cheese—you name it, they’ve got it! While you’re there, pick up a slice of vegan chocolate cake, peach cobbler, or chocolate chip cookie dough cheesecake.

The mainstream hot dog chain recently launched two vegan-friendly options. The Beyond Brat features a Beyond Meat bratwurst, sauerkraut, caramelized onions, and spicy brown mustard. For something more veggielicious, ask for the Sooo Veggie. It’s made with a Hot Italian Beyond Meat link, wild arugula, avocado, tomatoes, crispy onions, and spicy basil aioli. To make these menu items vegan, request for them to be served on a French roll or as a lettuce wrap.
