Plant-based diets have become increasingly popular around the world. While this is sometimes based on specific dietary needs, there are also many people trying to live a healthier and more earth-friendly lifestyle with more plant-based products. Plant-based options can not only be found in grocery stores, but also in restaurants across the country.

Being the foodie-centric city that it is, Chicago has great options for some mouth-watering burger alternatives. Here are a few places worth trying for tasty plant-based burgers:

M Burger

With multiple locations around Chicago, M Burger is one of the city’s go-to spots for a burger fix. Created to feel like a true neighborhood burger joint, M Burger offers classics like the ever-popular bacon cheeseburger. One of their newest menu items, however, is the Impossible Burger. This delicious meat-free sandwich is piled high with pickles, onions and the famous M Burger sauce.

Umami Burger

Started in Los Angeles in 2009, Umami Burger now has locations around the country including franchises in both Wicker Park and the West Loop. Umami Burger is based on the namesake savory taste that was coined in Japan. The chefs crafted their burger menu with this rich flavoring in mind. The menu features both traditional and more unusual ingredients and also includes the vegetarian Original Impossible Burger topped with two patties, miso mustard, and house spread.

Maillard Tavern

Tucked away in the River West neighborhood, Maillard Tavern is a casual burger hotspot with a wide range of beer and cocktails. Boasting one of the best burger menus around, Maillard Tavern is a popular spot for the perfect pairing of a beer and a hamburger. In addition to some creative ground beef options, Maillard Tavern also has its own take on a plant-based burger. Indeed, theirs features a hearty patty stacked with chipotle mayo, mushrooms, and cilantro.
