Radical Reubens all day long. When I would come that way, I would skip breakfast and make it a late lunch just so I could enjoy a Radical Reuben and Poutine. Very filling and very satisfying. Grab some cookies to go.

Thought I'd treat my vegetarian girlfriend to a visit here based on the excellent reviews on here. We were both massively disappointed. Milkshakes were not good, starter was poor, mains were barely edible. Even the side of sweet potato fries were the blandest, soggiest sweet potato fries either of us have ever tasted. Vegetarian options at every other restaurant we... More

I'm not a vegan/vegetarian, I'm a meatatarian. I like a side of meat with my meat. but this place can change your mind about enjoying vegetarian meals. MUST HAVE: pierogi quesadilla, Poutine and the Reuben POSITIVE: location is close to downtown, lake shore, bars and shopping areas. Friendly staff, fast service, fresh and tasty food. They are very creative with... More

Traveling in America I often found my veggie ways to be a bit problematic...then I came to Chicago and found the place I'd been dreaming of...The Chicago Dinner. I opted for 'Chicken wings' and Country fried Steak. Both were delicious above and beyond the novelty value alone. My partner is an avid carnivore, but despite this he very much enjoyed... More

A great place for vegetarians or vegans but even if you are not, the food is super flavorful. I love their desserts the most!

This unassuming little restaurant has an excellent selection of hearty delicious food. Our table (3 meat-eaters and a vegan) ordered the steak, the reuben sandwich, the Thai stir fry and two deserts. Everything was uniformly excellent, and we all left full and happy! And although we chose to sit in the back tent area, the service was still excellent! Cannot... More

Where do I start? Vegan Hot Chocolate warmed my soul, waffle fries with "teese" cheese simmered my soul, and the Spicy Crispy Chicken sandwich made me boil! I was delightfully cooled off with a refreshing cookie dough peanut butter shake! Whew! I ran 13.1 Miles to prepare for this feast! It was well worth the ground pound!

I have been here numerous times and I still find something to love about it! The vegetarian selection and gluten free options are outstanding! I love the Vegan milkshakes and raw desserts!
