The vegetarian hot spot has been in business since 1983 with the goal to serve meat-free food that tastes homemade. Some of The Chicago Diner’s most loved items on the menu include spicy Buffalo Style Wingz, Country Fried Staek served with rustic mashed potatoes and pesto sautéed vegetables, and Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough soy shakes for dessert. The official opening date has not been released, but the restaurant hopes to start serving customers sometime in the fall.
