Find Beyond Meat & Impossible Burgers at these Tucson restaurants

These two companies are dominating the beef-like plant-based burger market.

Although the burger is one of America’s most iconic foods, it may not be beef forever.

Thanks to an increased demand for sustainability and environmental consciousness, competition for plant-based burgers has also increased.

While house-made patties can be exceptional (looking at you Urban Fresh and Beaut Burger), they don’t taste like beef. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, but the market for beefy veggie patties is on the rise.

At the moment, two companies are dominating the beef-like plant-based burger market: Beyond Meat with their Beyond Burger, and Impossible Foods with their Impossible Burger.

Both burgers feature the color, texture, and even the flavor of beef, and other national companies are taking notice. Restaurant chains such as Burger King, Red Robin, and White Castle recently added Impossible Burger to their repertoire, contributing to a nationwide shortage.

Here’s a list of Tucson restaurants to find these burgers. Due to the shortage noted above, please be aware that the restaurants listed with the Impossible Burger are out of stock right now. However, they hope to bring it back once the shortage is over.

Vivace

Restaurants with the Impossible Burger by Impossible Foods

Ask to replace your beef patty with an Impossible Burger in the future. Remember, there’s a shortage on the Impossible Burger, so most of these places are out of stock at the moment — but once that shortage is over, these will likely be the places to go for it. Call before visiting to check if they have it in stock right now.
