Bull & Bourbon Vegetarian Options

Sure, Bull & Bourbon is best known for our steak offerings. After all, we are one of the most in-demand and award-winning steakhouses in the San Diego region. But that doesn’t mean that vegetarians can’t enjoy an amazing meal at our Sycuan Casino Resort restaurant!

At most steakhouses, the vegetarian options are uninspired and feel like an afterthought. Some steakhouses don’t even offer veggie-friendly dishes at all! But at Bull & Bourbon, we take pride in every single offering on our menu — including meat-free dishes. We want every visitor to have a meaningful — and delicious! — dining experience. 

If you’re going veg, here’s what you can expect to find and enjoy on our menu:

Note: When in doubt, always confirm that a menu item is vegetarian-friendly with your server. In some cases, animal products may not be immediately evident from the menu description (for instance, French Onion soup may be made with beef stock). If you’re curious about whether or not certain menu items can be made vegetarian, ask your server! 

And don’t forget … all of our drinks and desserts are veggie-friendly, too! 


Our salads are carefully prepared using fresh ingredients. They’re the perfect way to kick off your vegetarian meal.

  • Mixed Greens Salad: This delightful melange of mixed greens is served with candied walnuts, boursin cheese, pink lady apples, and herb champagne vinaigrette. You’ll love every bite!
  • Steakhouse Wedge (hold the bacon): While our Steakhouse Wedge is typically made with bacon, you can easily opt to leave it off and enjoy a salad made of baby iceberg, pickled sweet onions, point reyes blue cheese, cherry tomatoes … All topped with an irresistible buttermilk dressing.


Looking for a vegetarian starter? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. 

  • Vegan Sliders: The perfect appetizer to share with your dining companions! These tasty sliders are served with secret sauce on brioche buns. Even the staunchest steak eaters won’t miss the meat! 


Time for the main event! Vegetarians will rejoice when they taste our vegetarian and vegan-friendly pasta dish:

  • Penne Giardiniera: This flavor-filled pasta dish features perfectly cooked penne served with a bounty of fresh vegetables, including heirloom cherry tomatoes and zucchini. To really make the flavor sing, it’s prepared with garlic confit and pesto. This dish may be meat-free, but it’s an undisputed house favorite!


If you’ve ever visited Bull & Bourbon, you know that our side dishes are no joke. They’re expertly prepared and so good you may want to order extra just to have leftovers! 

Best of all for the vegetarian set, a ton of hte dishes are veggie-friendly. Here are some of the most popular vegetarian offerings from our side dishes menu:
