What people are saying.

“Excellent staple of the Chicago Restaurant scene. I haven’t been in almost 8 years but it was as good as I remember. The Rueben is incredible! As good as any meat Reuben I have ever had. The ‘wings’ are amazing. How they get the texture and flavor of a wing with the seitan is amazing. The service was very very good. The shakes are delicious and recommended as a post dinner treat!” — Seth
