I ordered the lake perch, and though the fish was good, the breading was way too salty. The kishke was mushy and low on taste. I applaud the effort on the vegetables, especially the fresh pea pods, but they were too mature and I had to remove the strings to make them edible. The high point of my meal was... More

Whenever I am in the mood for deli food I head over to Max and Benny's. Service and food is consistently top notch and we are always greeted like family. My favorites on the menu are the soups, veggie panini and veggie wrap, turkey leg with barbecue sauce, chicken fingers, and roast chicken. Really everything on the menu is great.... More

Extensive menu with always-fresh food and excellent, no nonsense service. They have their own bakery (think great bagels, etc.) and deli. Always reliable and consistent (we go there 2-3 times per weeks for brunch and/or dinner).

The corn beef sandwich is the best in Chicago. Also the soups are very good. The service is excellent and I find the place is very clean.

Just like Grandma used to make, and can't find Jewish deli food this good unless I make it myself. On second thought, it's probably better here. I adore the pastrami, matzoh ball soup, knishes, latkes, and blintzes here. The bread basket choices are uber-delicious, too!

Usual "diner" menu. Easy parking and wifi available (probably the only redeeming features of the place). Food sloppily presented and service very hit and miss. I usually ask to be seated in the service area of the known better wait staff. Owner always visible but never walks around to greet diners. I avoid this restaurant actively b

I have been a customer of this restaurant since their first location. The food is always consistently good .. If you are looking for good Jewish deli style food..this is the place. I do think that over the years prices have gone up a lot. I miss not having bagels in the bread basket.
