Ordering Vegetarian at McDonald's?

McDonald's ... for Vegetarians?

I'm not "vegetarian" per se, but I like to limit my meat-eating to 'one serving per day.' One day, I had some leftover pizza (Breakfast of Champions ). Later that day, I went to Walmart (the supermarket); and--since I had to wait for my ride to get back from 'running an errand' while I was shopping--I went ahead and ate dinner at the McDonald's fast-food restaurant near this Walmart's entrance. I didn't want 'a meat sandwich,' but I didn't know what other 'meals' they had. (Now I remember they serve salads there; but I don't know if there's a SALAD-"Extra Value Meal.") So I had 'the closest thing I could think of'---a "Filet-o-Fish" meal. Just now, I wonder 'Is there a vegetarian option at McDonald's?' http://www.mcdonalds.co.uk/ukhome/whatmakesmcdonalds/questions/food/vegetarian/im-a-vegetarian-what-can-i-order-at-mcdonalds.html And yes, yes there is. But I don't know if they have it-at the McDonald's I ate in, much less -at any McDonald's in the USA

I think McDonald's in everywhere will be different. It will adjust to the local diet habits. For example, I think here there are not many vegetarians. And I haven't seen the burgers here are without meats. So you can't find a vegetarian burger in McDonald's here. Meanwhile here there will be chicken rice for customers. So they can choose either burgers or chicken rice.

The filet-of-fish is always my favourite at a McDonald's. It's interesting: you have Walmart in the US, we have a supermarket chain in the UK called Asda, which is owned by Walmart. And at the entrance to an Asda store is - a McDonald's!

I'll think of a filet-of-fish as a "McNick" from now on ... or maybe think of the whole front-of-the-WalMart McDonald's as "McNick's" and maybe you can 'rename' the front-of-the-Asda McDonald's "McHarry's"

@mythociate We do have a Harry's fish chain in the UK. It's a fish and chip shop called Harry Ramsden's. I don't know if they still do it but Burger King used to have a vegetarian option called a Spicy Beanburger. I tried it once or twice. The name sounded so potentially gassy that I was virtually guaranteed a whole section of the restaurant to myself.

You can order bun and cheese only?

Indiana Jones switches Bag of Sand (Salad) for Golden Idol (Meat)
not anywhere I've seen. But they'll charge you for the hamburger. What I might do is order a burger and a salad, sit down, and switch the salad for the meat.

@mythociate Oh I did not know that they'd charge for a hamburger. I think the price is cheaper for grilled cheese at IN&OUt.

I go to Burger King because that place has the best-tasting veggie burger in town. Never go to McDonald's due to the fact that I have to order a salad and McDonald's salads stink. I do not eat meat or fish, so to BK I go.

There's a BK on the way to the store, but--like I said--the McD's is 'connected to' the front of the store ... I can order my meal, step in the next room & finish my grocery checkout, and be back before my order's ready

I think most restaurants offer a vegetarian option if you look hard enough. I think I would have asked what they have for vegetarians, or you could special order a salad with no meat. I don't eat alot of meat myself...it is expensive, and being a vegetarian is better for you anyway!

I searched Microsoft Bing for 'vegetarian at mcdonalds,' and that UK-site is the closest I found.
