Restaurant Review: Stand-Up Burgers

Burgers are a timeless American classic and they have become a staple for many people – but not everyone eats meat. Stand-Up Burgers located at 614 W Diversey Parkway in Chicago solves this problem by providing a large selection of burgers that are all completely plant-based. 

Their menu features seven flavor-packed burgers, two mouthwatering salads, and a variety of sides and shakes to curve everyone’s cravings. The Tex-Mex burger will have flavor critics wanting more with its Grilled Impossible patty, spicy queso, lettuce, tomato, ketchup, and guacamole all on a brioche bun. This succulent burger will completely fool your tastebuds into thinking you’re eating the real thing!

While the burgers are the main event here, don’t overlook their lip-smacking salads. For those interested in something a little lighter, the Flip the Bird salad will have your stomach rumbling just at the sight of it. Made with chicken tossed in savory BBQ sauce, mixed greens, tomatoes, roasted corn, black beans, red onions, tortilla strips, and topped with a creamy chipotle dressing, it is sure to satisfy cravings you didn’t even think you had. 

There is something for everyone at Stand-Up Burger including their wide range of sides. From the Save the Animal-Style Fries to the Onion Rings, this is a one-stop-shop for all things decadent and flavorful. The Save the Animal-Style Fries are hot and crispy and topped with onions and a special sauce that will have you begging for more. 

Eating at Stand-Up Burger will have you questioning what’s real and what’s not since everything is completely vegan. You won’t believe that what you’re eating isn’t meat at all. Even the shakes are made with oat milk! 

Stand-Up Burgers promises to deliver “all the flavor [and] none of the guilt” with their completely plant-based burger menu. Their mission is to empower people to be who they are and to stand up for what they believe in. 

Their goal is to change the mainstream way of eating and to normalize a more environmentally friendly diet. Their burgers are an excellent way to segway into this by providing people with a very popular dinner item that has no animal products at all. 

Stand-Up Burgers offers both indoor and outdoor seating, with the inside covered in murals and empowering phrases providing an authentic and edgy ambiance. All are welcome at Stand-Up Burgers, and all are encouraged to “stop eating like your parents.”
