Great local establishment

The lox platter and a bowl of their tomato/basil soup will warm anyone on a cold Chicago day. The friendly staff is an added treat.

A cornucopia of favorite Jewish foods and plenty of other seclular fare. Corned beef and chopped liver is my favorite with potato latkes on the side. Not a regular stopping place. But always a winner.

a popular place to meet for breakfast with many choices of breakfast food that is available all day. Also, a good place for lunch, with an overwhelming choice of what to order

If you like really good food, this is the place. I have had many sandwiches here and they are always good. Their corned beef and pastrami sandwiches are just great. Everything from the Rueben to the whitefish is very tasty. One can eat in their dinning room or pick up to go. One can also pick up some of their... More

My advice is go to Max and Benny's (Northbrook, IL) where you will get great service and delicious food. Max's Deli wait staff act like they are there to make money but not give you service. It seemed as if the server was doing us a favor to serve us. The food was marginal. All in all, don't bother!

Stopped by to either eat in if not crowded, or get something to go if crowded. The place was jammed. Asked one of the owners (was told he was one of the owners and his name was Joey) how long the wait was. He said there's no wait, but he didn't seat us and we waited a few minutes. We... More

Stopped by this neighborhood deli/restaurant to pick up some pastrami & corned beef for dinner. Although there were a number of people in line, there was only one employee working behind the counter. OK, no big problem. Eventually, another employee appeared & the orders, large & small, were filled. OK, good. In this establishment, the counter-man gives you the receipt... More

There are many temptations in the deli/bakery at the front of the restaurant -- huge taffy apples (with or without nuts); rugalach; apple, cherry, and key lime pies; cheesecake; smiley face cookies; etc. But the best deal is that from 5:00 p.m. till closing (9:00 p. m. Friday and Saturday; 8:30 other nights) bagels are half price. And they are... More

Ahh, the pleasures of a great corned beef sandwich. Oh, the joy of the delicate solidity of a well-crafted matzoh ball. The only thing missing here is there is no surly staff - they're responsive, helpful and quick! Is this really one of the greatest meals I've ever had? Of course not. But it is great deli food - reliable... More

We have Saturday Brunch here almost every Saturday with my father. It is his favorite place. We usually order Nova plate with bagel and chive cream cheese, omelets, soup, and sandwiches. They also have a great take out deli counter.
