Chicago - Style


Chicago's best kept secrets recreated in San Diego.


We are on haitus

We had set out to be a friendly neighborhood restaurant and bar where vegans and non vegans would feel at home. We have made so many new friends and acquaintances since opening last year and have enjoyed seeing you smile upon tasting vegan versions of authentic Chicago-style food. We have served over 6400 pounds of fresh cut fries, 3000 not dogs &  700 pounds of our house-made Italian BēF in the past 8 months and our goal of making a vegan difference in this world by way of delicious Chicago-Style comfort food has become a reality. 


Our space is open and airy and fun and…too big and expensive. We are saddened to tell you we have to close these doors while we look for a new space that simply costs less to operate. Chicago Not Dogs is going on hiatus while we find the perfect next location to bring all of you and your friends the food that has been on CBS8 twice, earned near 5 star reviews across social platforms, featured in AAA magazine and on VegOut’s top new vegan restaurants in America! All of this happens because of YOU and your commitment to supporting vegan restaurants. We have always been thrilled that you have chosen us to fill your belly. 


Our last day of service in this location will be Sunday, March 27, 12-6pm. Until then, please come help us deplete our tasty vegan stash and drinks. We welcome you to come sit and talk and hang out as much as you can until then. 

Stay tuned for chapter 2 of our adventure!
