Who would expect a place like Max and Benny's to exist in a strip shopping center. A great Ruben sandwich with fries and good service. The baked goods in the display cases would not let you leave without taking a few back to the hotel for later enjoyment. Nice atmosphere and great service made for an experience that I would... More

We've eaten at Max & Benny's for years. Great, consistent, offerings. But i have noticed lately they have gotten pricey.

I love this place as we usually hit it for lunch when we are visiting. Great mushroom barley soup, very good sandwiches. Pastry and cookies are very pricey and not that good. They do have phosphate soda which is always fun For my kids. The service is always good and the staff is friendly and good for recommendations.

At the last minute our group of friends and us and our kids decided to go here. As a vegetarian, I found the menu to have many choices aside from the breakfast food - such as adult grilled cheese (which I had and was very tasty), grilled paninis, wraps, etc. my wife's friend swears by the fried matzah. And two... More

The meal was filling and the service was very attentive. I enjoyed a old fashion turkey dinner that even included cranberry sauce. My dinning partner enjoy a large dinner salad that was fresh and filling. This is not fancy place but it does have good food at a reasonable price.

The North Shore staple-Max & Benny's. Always a delicious meal whether you want a sandwich, bowl of chicken soup,salad or breakfast any time. The corned beef is outstanding. The menu is so diverse that making a decision on what to order is always a problem. A most enjoyable and excellent meal.

We go to Max & Benny's frequently for good deli food. Decent amount of food but on the higher side for the type place it is. Corned Beef is very good as are most deli dishes and the regular fare for dinner or breakfast is also just as good. They don't stay open much past dinner hour which can sometimes... More

My wife and I went here for what was dubbed as Rogers Park Night. It sounded like they were going to have a menu of the iconic foods of the 50's, 60's and 70's era Rogers Park restaurants. Instead they had 4 items that they normally have on the menu. That was a bit disappointing. I order Nova on a... More

Fresh baked breads and pastries, ample portions and pleasant service! Breakfast was quickly prepared and a great value. Service was prompt and amiable. The host was especially welcoming. The deli section featured a large variety of quality items. Although the room decor was dated, the dining area and menus were clean.
