Totally unexpected veggie menu the one we found, but the outcome was great although a bit spicy. Very tasty food, nice place and excellent service.

My daughter became vegan while at college so when we came to visit she chose the Chicago Diner. I ordered the Cuban and it was simply delicious. I am not sure if it is insulting to use the "if I didn't know..." cliche, but it's true. I also tried the spicy "chicken" and it may have been even better. Dessert... More

Great Diner all Vegetarian or Vegan in Chicago's Boystown area. Great food and service. The Torta Milanesa de Nopalitos (Mexican style sandwich made of Milanese style cactus), Gyro and Reuben Sandwich were all great. As well as their milkshakes made out of vegan products were excellent. The only part I did not like was the fact that they added a... More

This was not my first time to the Diner. It is a special treat for my wife and kids as they are vegan. The food is always excellent and delicious. The bakery and shakes are the best. I rate them in fact over most normal non vegan bakery. I would recommend this place. And then go with you.

This is the best vegan restaurant in the entire world. Period. I've been to four continents and nothing is better than Chi Diner.

I enjoyed the food. Much of the menu is focused on swapping out traditional diner staples with a vegan protein, which is fine if you want to try country fried steak or a reuben, etc. The menu has something for everyone.

If you are vegetarian or vegan, the Chicago Diner should be a must-visit stop on your trip to the city. I was visiting for the weekend and we stopped in for lunch. Everything we had was absolutely delicious—try the seiten strips and the pierogi quesadillas. The desserts were great. We shared the peanut butter puck and it was beyond delicious.... More

We were visiting our daughter who attends school in Chicago. We were in the Halsted area for a show and planned on stopping in the Diner for a vegan meal afterwards. This place is a little rough around the edges but don't let the appearance deceive you, the food is phenomenal. There was a bit of a wait, but most... More
