Hot dog and fries were yum. I’ll pass on vegan shrimp. The Cookie Monster shake was one of the best shakes I’ve had! I’d go back for that alone!
Black Owned Business Alert! 10/10 would recommend! I came during the pandemic so I can’t comment on the atmosphere or service. The food however is AMAZING! It’s so good I’ve ordered 3x in one week. The entire menu is Vegan and is some of the best food I’ve ever had! The Who Betta Burger tastes better than beef. The patty is seasoned so well and it was filling! The Can’t Believe it’s a Pizza Puff is sooo delicious! The meat substitute tastes like beef, the vegan cheese melted well and was very rich! The Bucktown Bratwurst was also very good! Finally, the Lasagna is a MUST try! It tastes like the world’s best Italian restaurant’s lasagna. The Oreo Shake is BOMB! There is no mistake!!
I ordered the Philly cheesesteak hoagie, the Philly cheesesteak eggrolls, chik’ins . The Philly cheesesteak hoagie and eggrolls were extremely good. I didn’t like the chik’ins I did not like the texture. Overall I think everything was good the online ordering process was good. The estimated time for the order to be ready was not that good it took about 15 minutes longer than the time on the order. I am definitely going back for the Philly cheesesteak!
TL:DR – Food can take a bit to get ready. Eating in, our food was hot. The patty melt was amazing and the fries are super crispy and seasoned, similar to a Rally’s/Checker’s fry. No indoor seating during COVID, but they do have about four high top tables out front. Price is a tad high, but I think it’s still worth it. Man, 100% this place is fire! I was shocked to see it only had 4 stars, but reading some of the comments, I kind of get it. As I said before, I love it when vegan places do food better than their meat counterparts. I will always try to lean towards meat substitutes for environmental reasons, but doesn’t mean it has to taste bad. The shop itself is relatively small, during covid there is no indoor seating, there is about four high top tables out front though. It looks like pre-covid they had limited diner-counter top seating. I ordered the patty-melt based on the owner’s recommendation, and she was right. That thing was amazing. The “burger” was juicy, flavorful, and everything including the toasted bread to the vegan cheese worked beautifully. They also have the best kind of fries, that double fried, super crispy, Rally’s type of seasoned fry. Looking at the reviews, a lot of people were complaining about the temperature of the food and how long it took. We ate there, so the temperature wasn’t a huge deal. Everything was hot when we ate it. The food did take an abnormally long time though. It was not particularly busy, but we had to wait about 20-25 min for our food, which seemed a bit much for a casual spot. Regardless, this place was good, the menu looks amazing, and I want to try the shakes. I WILL be back.
This was my first time eating here, and my food was delicious! I was more than satisfied, specifically because I usually feel sluggish after most meals, but even after having the chik’n sandwich AND fries, I felt good and still had energy.
We ordered an hour in advance and still waited 45 additional mins for our order- our $13 salad didn’t come with any dressing( of course we didn’t notice till we got home) , the gumbo portion was immensely small for the price we paid. the Buffalo shrimp was good, but the fries weren’t cooked all the way/ the cashier had her mask at her chin, didn’t look like she wanted to be there, was letting the phone ring over and over… maybe I’ll give this place another try when I can eat there and have the product fresh. Really wanted to go here due to social media boost from vegan vendors but I wasn’t satisfied for what we spent 🙁
Food is good but pro tip: add 20 minutes to whatever time the app say your food will be ready…and don’t be surprised when you food is not hot… Update: ordered again and 20 minutes after food was suppose to be ready, I show up….and it is not.
Husband and I have been flex vegans for the past 7 months and it was a treat to try this place out. Truly cannot tell it’s not meat and the cook herself was the one to bring out our food. Pickles and chips came with our meals, MHM. Support black owned and female chefs!! Will be back.
I can’t speak for the service bc I did takeout. but the burger with fries and egg roll is amazing! Absolutely delicious. The egg roll is filled w a cashew cheese and ground bean. No soy! It’s so fulfilling. The fries are better than Checkers, thick and crunchy. The burger is charbroiled like BK. I’m not a vegan but I wholeheartedly enjoyed. A must try.
There’s a restaurant in the Hyde Park area called “Can’t Believe It’s Not Meat… they offer an array of great non- meat meals… but I was taken by the smoothies lol. Colorful with with a full flavor taste and some of the smoothie names are a hoot lol. Wow, not only good location … but a friendly staff kudos to them giving them four **** stars Gabriella – GI’ IACOMO Magazine Creative Dir./CEO
