I don't usually go to these kinds of places, but, went there today and had the black bean burger. They will prepare any of their burgers using the black bean patty in place of meat. I believe the patty is cooked on the same grill as the meat patties, but I'm not sure. Be sure to ask if this is important to you. I thought it was quite tasty, tasted like black beans, actually.

I actually don't like black beans, but I did like chili's veggie burger. I used to get either the old timer's or the pepper-crusted with the veggie burger, no condiments, i'd dip it in honey mustard. There is egg or whey or something nonvegan in the patty, though; sadly.

Chili's black bean burger tastes identical to Bennigan's black bean burger which is from Morning Star Farms, which I'm pretty sure contains egg. If I go to Chili's, I order it with garlic toast instead of a bun and then eat it like a steak. That way I get the illusion of variety. But yeah, the only local restaurant I know of that uses a vegan veggie burger is Bakers Square, but they're not very good at making it.

If anyone has a Claim Jumper around, they use the original Boca burger and make a FABULOUS veggie burger! Avacado, tomato, lettuce, pickle... YUM.

what's the best hamburger style to replace with the black bean patty? i'll go try it out today, i have a gift card that has been in my wallet for quite sometime.

Walker, I'm sure all of them are great... I'd personally try the bbq one, but read the ingredients and be sure you're not ordering a veggie bacon burger.

I e-mailed Chili's about their vegetarian options and they sent me this:

I had the black been burger there and absolutely hated it. When my family wants to go there for lunch (we meet once a week), I decline and don't go. There's nothing there for me. It's terrible that almost EVERYTHING contains meat and/or dairy! So I can probably get a kiddie wheat bun with guacamole and marinara sauce? haha
