Food is good with varied menu. Not gourmet dining...and a bit noisy at times...but what do you expect...it is a jewish kosher style deli. Great bread basket put out when you sit down...with all kinds of bagels, rolls,etc. Coffee is mediocre....but who needs coffee when you can gorge yourself on these great rolls! The service is usually quite good...knowledgeable and... More

We frequently pick up food from the deli side such as chicken soup, turkey, pastrami, lox and bagels. The food is always perfect!! We recently dined there during a busy lunch day and the service was great, food arrived very quickly and tasted so good, as always. Our family loves Max and Benny's!!

In Chicago this is my favorite Jewish deli. They have everything you'd expect: pastrami, corned beef (lean and not-so-lean), large selection of soups (kashi, chicken noodle, matzah ball, navy bean, etc.), every imaginable omelette, and pickles and a bread basket served before every meal. The atmosphere is pure deli, checkered, tiled floors, wooden tables, higher ceilings. Service is pretty decent... More

Max and Benny's is the number one Jewish Deli in the Chicago area. The only competition is Manny's which is really a cafeteria with the food of a Jewish Deli. Manny's is in the South Loop so it's not very convenient. Max and Benny's has wonderful food and it seems that we hardly ever try new items because we look... More

This place has a great selection of food. The service is good and fast but the people working don't seem happy. smiles on faces are not seen. Could not determine why they are so unhappy. I asked for the best sandwich and I was told Corned Beef. I ordered the sandwich with a side of fries. This was very good.... More

Had fun ordering take-out here with pastrami sandwich, cheese blintz and stuffed cabbage. I also has ordered a piece of cheese strudel which I paid for but when we got back to the hotel it wasn't there. Too tired to go back. My sandwich was expensive but good. The blintz very good but the stuffed cabbage very dry and tasteless.
