Restoring to recommend for the lovers of the food vegetarian served in fast food - hamburger of tofu, smoked meat in the tofu, etc. The atmosphere is young and the place is very noisy. It is not unfortunately a place for a meeting in private.

Went for brunch to find it all vegetarian. Two of our party were vegetarians..two were not. It's a great place for non meat eaters/vegan eaters but didn't make it for us meat eaters. Gave it a try but would not go back. BUT for vegetarians, this would be a great find. Very popular and there was a wait. This review... More

I was reluctant when my daughter suggested eating at this vegetarian/vegan restaurant but I'm glad I did. who would have thought there could be so many choices of "meatless" items that tasted so good. The Reuben looked like corned beef, tasted like corned beef...but it wasn't. My corn chowder was excellent as were the nachos. I look forward to another... More

This restaurant is a veggie lovers dream! First there are so many delicious sounding items on the menu that it is difficult to even make a decision as to what to order. My boyfriend had the Cajun Black Bean Veggie Burger which was amazing - but very spicy (only get this if you like spicy food) - especially the sauce.... More

We go to Chicago Diner every time we are in or around Chicago. The vegan sandwiches are the best. My husband (meat eater) and son (vegetarian) both get the country fried steak. My daughter has a had a variety or entrees. I am vegan and I loved the dagwood sandwich--which is no longer on the menu. My new favorite is... More

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
