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.
