Since 2019, Charlotte’s vegan food truck scene continues to grow. While having pop-ups are great, seeing actual vegan food trucks just feels more substantial. There may be locations listed below, but with food trucks, it is always best to double check their social media to confirm where they will be.
Sun Burger has been on the Charlotte vegan scene for a long time with pop ups, but upgraded to a food truck in March 2019. They offer weekly meal prep and delivery service as well as weekly service at The Spoke Easy from 1-5 pm on Thursday through Sunday.
Vegan food on the go. They’ve become a staple at Pilot Brewing for Taco Tuesdays, but can be found around the Charlotte region. They have a rotating menu featuring beef tips, fried chik’n, cauliflower wings, and loaded nachos.
Soul Miner’s Garden
Showing up at breweries around town, they offer a variety of bowls, hashbrown, and sandwiches like the Shroomin’ Philly.
Another newcomer in 2020, they have a chili mac n cheeze bowl that looks amazing.
Romeo’s Vegan Burgers
Romeo’s officially opened on Black Friday 2020 and rapidly gained a massive following. They offer burgers, shakes, and fries. (Now with a permanent spot!)
One of the OGs of the Charlotte vegan scene. After they left their University location, they reemerged as a food truck. While not always letting people know on their social media, they are still showing up around town.
Sort of around…you can sometimes find one of their menu items at Bahn Mi Brothers.
Mike’s Vegan Cookout
Mike’s Vegan Cookout has left the Charlotte market. They still have 2 trucks operating around the Raleigh/Durham area offering burgers, hot dogs, BBQ sandwiches, and chili cheese fries.
Vegan Rich now has a food truck and has been showing up at the farmer’s market with their Jamaican inspired dishes. The most recent menu had kebabs, burgers, and jerk spare ribs.
Trucks With Vegan Options
An Eritrean/Ethiopian food truck with clearly marked vegan options. Delicious options such as vegan sambusas and the vegan platter (combination of vegan dishes; red lentil, split peas, collard greens, cabbage, and carrots.)
My Sausage Buddy
You wouldn’t think My Sausage Buddy would offer any vegan options, but they do have one: Vegan Italian. At the time we tried it, they were using Field Roast. The owner mentioned having attempted to make his own vegan sausage, but wasn’t able to perfect one yet. Solid enough option when you’re at a brewery and need a bite.
