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! When I visit I always have a hard time deciding what to order! My kids love it too! Highly recommend it to everyone, even the meat eater in... More

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!!!

It's SO hard to find good Vegan food at a restaurant let alone an entire restaurant devoted to vegetarians! My dad has been a vegetarian for over 30 years and I was so excited to bring him here! It did not disappoint! He first couldn't believe that the shake had no dairy. The best he's ever had, he said! YAY!... More

Anytime we're in Chicago we have to stop by Chicago Diner. With their huge selection of vegan food and old meat filled favorites it's worth checking out. The wait can be a bit long depending on the time but you won't be disappointed in your meal. Make sure to save room for a milkshake too!

We walked over to the Chicago Diner "meat free since 1983" for a late lunch/early dinner after visiting the Wrigley Field ballpark. We shared a large cookie dough shake (delicious), I had a black bean burger (yummy) with mac & cheese as a side (meh), and my husband had a fried "steak" (good though hard to cut). Service was cheerful... More

This is a little diner and can be quite loud inside when they are crowded. We went early (4 ish) on a Sunday night and we felt lucky to get a table (they do not take reservations). The food was delicious and my daughter even had a grilled cheese on gluten-free bread with the best fries. My other daughter had... More

What a nice find! Nice little find on Milwaukee st. Mixed alongside little shops. Delicious vegan/vegetarian options. The cauliflower curry soup was a real treat! Poutine (a Canadian potato favorite) was so good!!! The menu was large too! Stop by and give it a try. Yummy!!!

I live on the far north side of Chicago and this is by far my fav spot in town to travel to to get the most satisfying meal. Of course in Chicago you will find a plentiful array of Vegan choices but this place is so laid back, food is served with a flare and it comes out looking like... More
