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!

Went to some lengths to have supper at the Chicago Diner based on the many good reviews here. Tired and hungry from a long day of travel, we were disappointed to find loud rock music as if it were a biker bar. The dining room was jammed and voices roared to compete. The hostess said someone would turn it down,... More

Great food! Most people screw up vegetarian food, but not this place! Had the tostadas with the chorizo, and it was to die for, and my husband had the Reuben, and he loved it! The only con was it was a little pricy, but overall fantastic place to eat!!!
