No doubt when you think of the diet of a Texan, a whole lot of red meat comes to mind. But North Texas has more to offer diners than a nice brisket or juicy steak.
In fact, a new survey from WalletHub found that Irving is the 18th best city in the United States for vegetarians and vegans!
The personal finance website found their data by analyzing the cost of groceries for vegetarians, share of restaurants serving meatless and vegan options, salad, juice and smoothie shops per capita, and number of farmers markets and vegetable nurseries.
Their results saw that roughly 55% of restaurants in Irving offer vegetarian options, and that the city also scored 17th among cities for the cost of groceries, 15th for the number of vegan and vegetarian meetups per capita, and 8th for average cost of a meal.
The next Texas city to appear on the list is Lubbock believe it or not, ranking in at No. 23. Dallas is next at No. 25.
According to the survey, the absolute best city for vegetarians and vegans is Portland, OR, and the absolute worst is Greensboro, NC.
