I'll try them ALL

YEP, not a fancy place, why of course it is the outlet, but it is very cute inside, Stop in on your way in or out of town, a few miles down Irving Park Road, a good alternate route if your going to the city and the traffic is horrible. All kinds of goodies to taste and take and even... read more

Let me start of by saying the store was clean, most of the staff was helpful and nice, the desserts looked good. However the one bathroom they have was so dirty we ended up leaving and going to McDonalds to use the restroom.

Stopped in since its been years and not disappointed! Best cheesecake on the planet! Their service is also untouchable! If you are in Chicago it is a MUST visit! The prices in the store are a fraction of what you see online! This IS a Chicago staple!

A visit to Eli's Cheesecake World won't soon been forgotten. Upon entering the modest cafe/retail shop, it's hard to imagine these heavenly delights are made just yards away behind the inner walls. The selections of cheesecakes and other yummy dessert items is awesome. You'll have to try a slice or two to taste test for for favorite kind. Free samples... More

Although it has been there a while, I only discovered it in the last few months. The frozen Eli's items range from large cheesecakes of different flavors to small ones. There are discounted not so perfect ones too. In addition to cheesecake, you will find muffins, layer cake, popovers, scones, cookies and cinnamon rolls baked fresh each day. Try their... More

My sweet tooth was aching for something good and I noticed the cheesecake shop while walking around the concourse. Ended up getting a dutch apple cheesecake that was heavy on the apple and easy on the cheesecake. I wasn't complaining a bit about it though. Most important, the cheesecake was very good, I got a pretty good price (for the... More

Eveeybody loves a good cheesecake. Eli's was recommended to me by a friend. He said don't leave Chicago till you've had their cake. Well, I didn't. What I liked the most was the fact that they had samples for almost every other cake. Helped me make up my mind - or rather narrow the list down. It's a great place... More

I found these guys as one of the vendors at the Taste of Chicago food festival. I helped my sister move to Chicago since she accepted a job there and me along with my folks decided to check out the food festival to see and sample all the different kinds of food they had there. I had the turtle cheesecake... More

We decided to go directly to Eli's instead of having it at a pizza place in Chicago. At the place it was over $5 a slice and at Eli's it was $3-4 for a slice. The best cheesecake I have ever had. We had hoped to make the tour but could not make it at 12:30. From the reviews it... More

We arrived in time for lunch and thoroughly enjoyedhad the fresh roasted turkey sandwich with cranberry sauce and Parmesan mayo, which came with a slice of cheesecake in the flavor of our choice! Darn good lunch for $6.95! They had three samples to taste... More
