J. Alexander’s

UPDATE 5/30/14: I just made a visit to J. Alexander’s and inquired before ordering, as I always do. I was told that the recipe for the veggie burger had recently changed and now contains egg. While vegetarian, the veggie burger from J. Alexander’s is no longer vegan.


If you haven’t tried the veggie burger at J. Alexander’s you should. It is made in-house, not a frozen shipped-in patty and is completely vegan AND prepared on a separate grill from the meat items. How do I know this? My wife spoke with the chef who prepares the burgers when he visited the store where she works. So far, this is the best veggie burger I have had in a restaurant. I visited the Coolsprings location but I did call the West End restaurant and asked about their veggie burger and they told me that it contained no eggs or dairy.

    This is one of the best veggie burgers I have had. Can anyone figure out how it is made?

  2. Nashveggie says:

    I have tried, over many times, to figure out the ingredients. Check back,I’ll see what I can do to procure them.

    Another wonderful veggie burger is Houston’s Resturant. If you ever go to Atlanta, GA also go to Harmony’s off Chamblee Tucker Road. It’s a vegetarian Chinese resturant and the food is excellent!

    The original Houston’s was in Nashville but closed about 4 years ago. I had never tried the veggie burger there as getting veggie burgers while eating out is not my first choice.
    Atlanta, I visit very regularly…I have many posts mentioning Atlanta. I just made one last week:


    Thanks for visiting!

    Any progress towards figuring out the ingredients in the J. Alexander’s Veggie Burger? I no longer live in a state where I can get this veggie burger…so I would love to learn how to create this delicious meal!!

    I have info from the executive chef at my local j. alexander’s that the veggie burger patty is vegan, no chicken stock and no worcestershire, which is something I can easily taste in foods and that he makes it, on occasion, himself. perhaps the recipe differs from location to location.
