Vegan at Chicago O'Hare Airport

If you’re currently in the Chicago O’Hare Airport and are trying to figure out what the best vegan options are and where you can find them, you’re in luck! Or maybe you’re a planner and you’re planning your trip advance, if so, good for you! Either way, we have exactly what you’re looking for!

We break down each concourse in the Chicago O’Hare Airport into three categories. First, restaurants that we have confirmed options are available. They are somewhat ranked in order from best to not-so-best options. Next we have restaurants we’re still researching grouped together and finally we have restaurants that have no confirmed vegan options available.

Before we get into the full breakdown, here are a few highlights of what’s vegan at O’Hare. B Smooth in Concourse K has Vegan Soft Serve Ice Cream Smoothies. Jamba Juice is another great spot to grab a smoothie in Concourse B. CIBO Express has great vegan options in Terminal 2 and in Concourse H. Lastly, if you want something simple and delicious, Big Bowl in Terminal 5 has steamed tofu, veggies and brown rice.

*We work tirelessly to keep each cheat sheet as updated as possible. However, things do change. If you notice a correction we need to make, please reach out to us.

We hope this list of vegan options at the Chicago O’Hare Airport helps you the next time you’re in Chicago (or perhaps more likely, right this second). The idea for these airport lists started by me wandering around the Atlanta Airport trying to figure out if the place I was at was the best spot to get a bite or if there was something better down the way.
