VeganXpress also features a full list of vegan / vegetarian beers, wine, liquor, snacks, candy and foods that you may not have realized were vegan.

Vegans often find themselves looking for a place to eat with non-vegan friends, family or coworkers, and the search can be somewhat difficult. While the population of vegans is growing, most restaurants do not specify which menu items are vegan. This app lists over 130 very common restaurants and their menu items suitable for the vegan diet. Whether you’re on a road trip, in a hurry, or looking for a place to eat with family or friends, you will be able to quickly find vegan options.

VeganXpress is updated regularly, so feel free to contact me with updates or new info that you may have. Follow VeganXpress on Twitter for live updates and information.

Pros and cons of VeganXpress - Menu & Shopping Assistance app for iPhone and iPad

VeganXpress - Menu & Shopping Assistance app good for

ridiculously useful for vegans looking for beer and candy. or when youre stuck eating out with friends at decidedly non-vegan establishments.
I LOVE this app! I have a feeling that I will never take this off of my phone! I dont need the beer lists, as I do not drink, but the restauraunt information is invaluble!
A very impressive app, especially with the next version said to include a more global food market. What would be nice is a tab where you can add your own foods. Just something simple. Also, the asterisks all over the place are kind of distracting, so it might be better if you could just select the food item for more details. Still, this app is great and a must-have for vegans!
I use this app almost daily, it really comes in handy. Truly great for road-trips, especially if youre driving through small towns without a lot of vegan options.
Just downloaded it. Its basically a list of a restaurants with a list of whats vegan. It doesnt have restaurants that are in your state only, but it has the popular food chains that are found in the US as well as alcohol lists by alphabetical order so say you wanna know if Jack Daniels is vegan youd go to the J section and once clicked itll say vegan or non vegan. It also includes a list of vegan snacks & candy & food in alphabetical order. For the price its not bad! 8/10.
Mc Donalds puts beef fat in the fries so how do you know really what youre getting? Its been a huge headache for me but this app really makes things easier by letting you know whats vegan and whats not. Granted a lot of menu items are not listed but thats because we live in a world full of death but at least it tells you what is available so you can order a 7 layer from say Taco Bell and tell them no meat, cheese, or sour cream. Blame the companies for lack of vegan items not this app! Well worth the price to download now to find a makeup version.

Some bad moments

I downloaded this app because I was super excited about having a Vegan food guide & after agreeing to pay for it and downloading it I received an error upon opening it that wouldnt let me open the app. I contacted the creator of this app and he told me that he didnt have any other issues with other users & to try deleting, rebooting & downloading again. I had the same results, so he told me to request a refund from iTunes support. I dont think its my phone as Ive not had any other issues with other apps Ive downloaded. Im disappointed that I cant use this app, and the response from the creator has implied that its either my phone or user error thats causing this lack of functionality.
I agree, I do not believe all these things to be vegan. Some even had cheese in the title. It is stupid to list something with dairy as vegan, we can all figure out that omitting the cheese would make it vegan. This apps is suppose to be about what is vegan with having to change it or make omissions. Also, Not all panera bagels are vegan, they contain l-cystine which is usually an animal protein used as a dough conditioner. Do your research, save your money!
I liked this app before the latest update because I dont have a data plan, but now you need one. So its pretty useless. They should allow the user to download the dbase for offline use.
I loved this app, until the update. After that, I had to be connected to a wifi signal in order to check restaurant menus. Before, all the information was stored on my device... I will give a better rating, if I do not have to connect to the Internet.
This app was amazing nd very helpful...UNTIL wifi was needed to use it. Sometimes wifi is just not available so please fix that
Another user who really loved this app until the upgrade. It does not store menus you have clicked on for use if there is no wifi even though its supposed to. Would love to see this fixed.
