Chicago Diner
Logan Square

Boystown's famed vegetarian diner opened this second location in Logan Square with the same food, but more booze. Brunch is a madhouse—people love those big, doughy cinnamon rolls, we guess. We're skipping the rolls and going for the vegan pancakes (dense, but nice flavor), a tofu scramble or—if we're feeling ovo-lacto—a Mexican bowl of rice, guac, black beans and eggs.

Do you want the best vegetarian food in Chicago. OK, no problem, you've come to the right place. Everyone gets the Reuben and the reason is it's freaking delicious. So is...nearly everything on the menu though. While sandwiches and entrees take up the majority of the menu, do not—I repeat, do not—overlook the milkshakes. I would come here just for one of those.

As a vegetarian, I know I can always count on getting an amazing (and filling!) meal at Chicago Diner. The waitstaff is all incredibly friendly, and food comes out quickly—and it's delicious. The space is great. It's a good place for any evening out, whether you're on a date or taking your parents to dinner. Brunch is amazing too!
