This place feels like a bit of the City (New York City?) in a strip mall in the suburbs. They put your orders on a clip that slides along a string to the sandwich makers. They call out your name when your order is ready. The servers are polite and welcoming with just the right bit of attitude if you... More

This was a favorite stop of ours for many years. A year or so ago they changed the matzo balls in the soup...bad move, they are terrible. Also, we used to always pick up a pack of bagel chips to take home. Last 5 times we have been there now only didn't they have any packaged to sell, but they... More

Schmaltz Delicatessen has without doubt the best corned beef sandwich in the area. I also recommend their Matzo Ball soup! Those two items make for me a delightful lunch, especially with friends. The service is exception, although that takes place at the counter. Then you pick up your order and find a table to enjoy lunch together.

Hilariously, I had breakfast here the day before a trip to NYC - and the bagels from here were so yummy I didn't think I needed to bother getting one in New York! Everything Bagel was on point - tons of "everything" on both sides which is crucial. Bagels that are only covered in goodness on one side should be... More

My husband and I went there for lunch after church, and even though the place was packed, service was efficient and the wait was not long, so do not be put off by a line. Besides you definitely need some time to pick from all the tempting items. The half sandwich is so loaded with meat I cannot imagine anyone... More

Save the aggravation, save the airfare, avoid the horrible New York traffic and just go to Schmaltz in Naperville. For those of you who might have been born and raised in the "city", a trip to schmaltz will be like returning home. From watching your order fly down the guide wire to the preparers to experiencing a lesser version of... More

If you are around Naperville and think you may be hungry you must get into this deli and order yourself a mean sammich! If you want to devour the best tasting real-life sandwich you will brag about then order the Sloppy Paul overstuffed. Get yourself and drink and prepare to wake up your tastebuds. I don't want to oversell this... More

Try the pretzel bagel sandwich, potato knish and soup. All the food is amazing -- the prices are inexpensive and the portions are huge! If you can manage to save room for dessert, they have excellent baked goods. HIGHLY recommend this place. If you don't have time to eat and relax, order to go food in advance and pick it... More

Traditional corned beef sandwich (rye, mustard) and the corned beef on onion bagel with mayo, tomato and lettuce were both made perfectly as ordered with quality ingredients. Well managed, informal restaurant keeps up serving the lunch rush even on a busy Friday. Leftover half sandwich and autumn-spice kugel traveled well in boxes provided.
