Atlanta – In honor of National Hamburger Month, PETA has named its picks for the best vegan burgers in the U.S., and the A’s own Slutty Vegan has won a top spot with its mouthwatering Ménage à Trois.
With multiple locations, including its original restaurant at 1542 Ralph David Abernathy Blvd. S.W., the fast-casual burger chain—founded by restaurateur and cookbook author Pinky Cole—offers a menu of provocatively named plant-powered burgers and sandwiches, including the Hollywood Hooker and the Fussy Hussy. The award-winning Ménage à Trois features a Beyond Beef patty loaded with bacon, shrimp, and cheese—all vegan—plus caramelized onions, lettuce, tomato, and the eatery’s signature Slut Sauce on a Hawaiian bun.
“The deliciously naughty Ménage à Trois goes all the way on flavor and is the perfect animal-friendly answer to those comfort food cravings,” says PETA President Ingrid Newkirk. “All the winning vegan burgers on PETA’s national top 10 list prove that serving plant-based foods is a smart business decision.”
Slutty Vegan will receive a framed certificate from PETA in honor of its culinary achievement. The other top burgers receiving the group’s recognition are the Dirty Secret at J. Selby’s (St. Paul, Minnesota), the Mushroom Swizz Burger at Modern Love Omaha (Omaha, Nebraska), the Love Life Burger at Love Life Cafe (Miami), the Beet Burger at Three Carrots (Indianapolis), the Flatiron at Meta Burger (Boulder, Denver, and Edgewater, Colorado), the Garlic Mushroom Burger at Mark of the Beastro (Salt Lake City), the WAP-er at Houstatlantavegan (Houston), the Deluxe Vurger at Vurger Guyz (Los Angeles), and the Cowboy Burger at Bean Vegan Cuisine (Charlotte, North Carolina).
Every person who goes vegan spares nearly 200 animals each year daily suffering and terrifying deaths and reduces their risk of developing heart disease and cancer. PETA’s free vegan starter kit can help those looking to make the switch.
PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat”—opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview. For more information, please visit PETA.org, listen to The PETA Podcast, or follow the group on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram.
