    The best micheladas, menu full of decent vegan and vegetarian food and nice staff. Get the fried pies or (enormous) chocolate cake for dessert.

    You don't need Gouda for a good mac and cheese. Just head down to Skylark.

    Bloody Mary was pretty good. Biscuits and gravy were phenomenal. My friend had an Old Fashioned and said it was one of the best he's ever had.

    Nice vegetarian restaurant with a good selection of beer. Try the kale salad and a Sierra Nevada Pale Ale.

    AMAZING vegan food! If it's brunch, Biscuits and Gravy with Blackened Tofu or the French Toast. Buffalo chicken wrap is awesome! #vegan #whatveganseat

    This was a great place for a Lenten lunch. The Green Meanie was very good vegetarian option for a meat eater.

  • Sarah B.

    Super awesome Vegan/Vegetarian food! I loved the Diablos. The have the best chorizo and tofu on them. The rice and beans were a perfect addition. I even added cheese and avocado it made it delicious.

    Rude bartender. Terrible bar service.

    Abbie A · March 15, 2014
  • Amy Ellen G.

    So hit or miss. Drinks are tasty, potent, and inexpensive and the vegan food offerings are some of the best in the city, but servers and bartenders are stretched so thin and wait times can be long.

    Amy Ellen Graff · September 23, 2013
  • Kerry N.

    Chiliquilles are very good. Done traditionally w/sour crm, raw onions & beans. Tortillas did not disintegrate. HOWEVER; served w/one egg?? Ask for an extra egg.

    Kerry Nevel · September 14, 2013
  • Nauman N.

    Good vegan food at gear price. Love the breakfast menu, though on late afternoons, the background music can get a bit too loud to have a friendly conversation.

    Nauman Noor · September 11, 2013
  • Eva R.

    Get your French toast cooked a little longer if you like crispy toast. Also the orange is to die for.

    Eva Richardson · August 5, 2013
  • Aubrey B.

    Try the black bean and chorizo nachos. It's a huge mound of vegetarian deliciousness. (And the fried avocado tacos as dinner)

    Aubrey Boonstra · August 5, 2013

    Sunday Night Special FTW: $10 for a shot of tequila, a Tecate and two delish fried avocado tacos. Yesssss.

    Jess S · August 2, 2013

    Try the vegetarian, chili, cheese fries! #Mmmmmm. Just far enough away from the cray (6 corners)!!!

    Kip Stevens · July 21, 2013

    Try the Salmon Cakes - Wow! Great summer special. Baked beans & potato salad make it like a picnic BBQ

    Jason M. · July 14, 2013

    Get a table in the patio to enjoy the warm nights of Chicago summer. A great spot in Damen ! Delicious food and a large choice of cheap beers !

    Bloody Hammer. Do it. The Green Meanie is great too. Very nice, chill patio.

    This biker bar (bikes not motorcycles) in Wicker Park specializes in vegetarian fare.

    Serious Eats · May 2, 2013
  • Kimberly K.

    They make a mean Bloody Mary! Also, you can't beat the Turkey Tea on the patio. Some of my veggie favorites: Chili cheese fries and the buffalo "chicken" wrap.

    Kimberly Kays · May 1, 2013
  • Angelina S.

    Offers the best vegetarian delights. A perfect place if you are a vegan, as well.

    Angelina S. · April 14, 2013

    Blackboard Eats says "Why aren't avocados fried more often? This gets center stage: crispy tender taco filling with crunchy cabbage slaw, salty queso fresco, and creamy ranch on soft, warm tortillas.

    Mary Kay Hardcastle · April 13, 2013

    The fried avocado tacos are incredible. Super fresh and delicious.
