The only thing we didn't like about Veggie Grill was that there weren't any in Chicago - until now! With locations all along the West Coast from Seattle to San Diego, Veggie Grill now has 2 locations in Chicago and more on the way. We are so frickin' stoked. The entire menu, yes EVERYTHING, at Veggie Grill is plant-based. Their menu spans the spectrum from vegan takes on comfort classics to light salads and healthy bowls. No need to read the fine print of what's in every dish, make substitutions, or ask for the ingredient list of sauces. If they're serving it, it's vegan. Go ahead an order anything you'd like.
Here's some high-level suggestions on how to enhance your plant-based experience at Veggie Grill:
If you're looking for something on the lighter side check out the bowls and salads. The Sonoran Bowl and the Quinoa Power Salad are both good choices.
On the days you're being more indulgent try their Super Rica Burger. This cheesy, decadent masterpiece really hits the spot.
EVERYTHING on the menu!
