Huey's Goes Vegan! How's that for a headline?

Welp, it's fake news. BUT, Huey's will introduce a new 100 percent vegan burger in the next couple weeks.

"We've had our veggie burger forever," says Steve Voss, vice president of operations at Huey's. The veggie burger is vegan (the black bean — my jam — isn't). Voss says that customers want more options, and when some really great vegan burgers, like the Impossible Burger and Beyond Burgers, became available, Huey's thought it was worth it to explore options.

Huey's is going with the Beyond Burger. In fact, Beyond Burger has crafted a six-ounce burger just for Huey's. The burger will be cooked on a grill, not the flat-top, so that the vegan burger doesn't get contaminated by Huey's other options. The burger will be served on a kaiser bun (as usual) and dressed with Follow Your Heart smoked Gouda and Veganaise.

So is this burger up to Huey's standards?

"They're awesome," says Voss. "I love it."

Voss says the burger will first be available at Midtown, Germantown, and Downtown Huey's locations as soon as next week, and then roll out to all locations in early November.
