Craving a big, juicy burger? The Beyond Burger, an incredibly meat-like vegan patty, is made to satisfy. The burger replicates the taste, smell, look, and texture of a beef patty due to its unique blend of plant-based ingredients, which has led to a massive fan base of both vegans and self-proclaimed carnivores. The Beyond Burger is the first plant-based meat to be sold in the supermarket meat section, revolutionizing grocery shelves when it debuted in 2016. The burgers are widely distributed in markets across the U.S., but the company has also partnered with over 2,000 restaurants who create their own renditions of the classic hamburger using this plant-based patty. From national chains to independent franchises, find out where you can sink your teeth into a restaurant-quality Beyond Burger across the U.S.
