“THE Best Veg/Vegan Food”
Reviewed 31 July 2014

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 it jumped off the pages of a magazine. I highly recommend! the Vegan chorizo tostadas were to die for!!! Thanks again!!!

“Great place for vegetarian fare”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

If you like to go veg, this is one of Chicago's best. If you are a meater, you will probably be surprised how much you like the food anyway.

“Huge portions of veggie treats”
Reviewed 19 July 2014 via mobile

We ordered far too much as the portions are massive!!
Nachos and wings to start, the wings were amazing. Then fish tacos and country style steak for main course. And milkshakes. It was all amazing but you dont need a starter. I dream of veggie places in the UK this good!

“A Chicago staple since 1983”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

This is a go-to gathering place for the veggie minded. But even if you like meat, the dishes are tasty and filling. The original Halsted location is cozy (i.e. small), and you may have to wait a while to get a table, but that's true of most good restaurants in Chicago. But what this place lacks in space, it makes up for in flavor and friendliness. I have never had a bad experience here. Also check out their new location on Milwaukee Ave.
