Vegan Nashville Chicken

If you are familiar with the chain you know. If not, they make a wonderful vegan option that you can choose your spice level for. Beyond that not a lot of options but one of those guilty pleasures to have from time-to-time!

We stopped at this location for lunch. Possibly timing but was busy with little open seating and parking was similar. We ended up parked on a city street and enjoying our lunch.

Pros: Vegan Nashville Hot Chicken

Cons: Busy, Selection

Delicious Vegan Chicken

Joellas has the best vegan chicken. My boyfriend is a meat eater and he likes the vegan chicken at Joellas better than their real chicken. Now he gets their vegan chicken delivered at home through Door Dash about once a week. They also have a great kale salad that can be vegan if you just ask them to leave off the parmesan cheese.

Vegan chicken?

We went here with my omni family and got dinner to go. The vegan chicken was not anything special. It was two bland soy patties. I would not care to eat those again. I will say, the fries and kale salad were very tasty and they gave me a lemonade on the house while I was waiting which really impressed me. The catchphrase seems to be “do the right thing” which I find ironic considering how the chickens fair in this restaurant. If you have no other options this would do.

Pros: Vegan option, Nice staff

Cons: Not tasty

Vegan Chicken

I like Joella’s but the vegan “chicken” is just a large soy patty. You get two massive soy patties when you order the vegan chicken. I wash they had a sandwich option for the vegan chicken. I always get an extra piece of bread and make my own sandwich and layer the Cole slaw on as the topping. Then I have an extra patty and Cole slaw leftover to take home and put another sandwich together at a later date.

Pros: Lots of vegetarian side options, Quick service, Tasty hot sauces for your “chicken”

Cons: Only one vegan option, Only one vegan side option, Cole slaw, Disengaged staff

Favorite "Chicken" place in Louisville

Love coming here. The Vegan Options has great flavor, I normally go with "hot" which is about perfect for me, but the have a spice level for everyone.

Their sides are all pretty good, and the Lemonade is a must in my opinion.

Pros: Great Taste, A few different sides to pick from
