While classic beef patties are unlikely to ever fall out of favor with the American public, in recent years, a new kind of burger has started to gain popularity – the veggie burger. Here’s why we at Citrus the Diner expect to see veggie burgers continue to hold their own on menus across the country.

Here’s Why the Veggie Burger Craze is Here to Stay

  • A Healthy Option. One of the biggest draws of a veggie burger is that it’s a protein and nutrient-packed alternative to traditional beef. Veggie burgers are a win-win that allows people to satisfy their craving for a burger and get their daily dose of vegetables.
  • Dietary Diversity. Whether you’re vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, low-sodium, or on almost any other kind of specialty diet, there’s a veggie burger out there that fits the bill and is a delicious alternative to meat.
  • Creative Ingredients. Veggie burgers offer plenty of room for culinary exploration, and creative chefs are whipping up tasty burgers from ingredients like black beans, quinoa, lentils, mushrooms, and much more.
  • Flavor Abounds. In the early days of veggie burger exploration, it wasn’t uncommon to be served something bland and uninspired, but those days are long gone. As more and more restaurants serve up their own unique veggie burger options, we continue to get flavorful, juicy creations that some even claim are better than a traditional burger.

All of these factors contribute to the rising popularity of veggie burgers, and we don’t expect that to change any time soon. The next time you’re in the mood for a burger, consider giving our veggie burger a try and see for yourself what all the excitement is about.
