Chicago is in our DNA
Chicago Not Dogs has not been born overnight. The core menu comes from decades of tasting and experiences before we began our own vegan journey. After many years passed we just had to cave into the hunger cravings. Being San Diegans now, we quickly realize that our favorite sandwiches are nowhere to be found here, and it was time to make them vegan anyways!
We source all the authentic ingredients that make Chicago-style food rich in taste and combine it with the best alternative proteins available. We use some industry standards like Field Roast franks and Beyond Hot Sassage and then our house-made Italian beaf seitan loaf and southern California's best chick'n from The Original Herbivore. Each of these sandwiches, along with a handful of fresh cut fries, is meant to bring us back to the taste of Chicago all while keeping our vegan lifestyle intact.
