Excellent food. Our table ordered the chicken liver sandwiches, rubens, corned beef sandwiches and cabbage soup. All were excellent. Great bread basket on the table with nice variety and FRESH! Busy on a Sunday, but good service given how busy it was. Very authentic Jewish deli. Stopped by the retail part and picked up some goodies to take home. You... More

Food consistently good. Service, depends on how busy and time of day. Wide range of quality food with large portions. Worth the money.

I have been going here since they opened decades ago. The food is very good-very authentic Jewish deli- and the service is usually very good. There can be a wait depending on when you go there. I believe the food is a bit overpriced probably because they can get away with it because of its great popularity. If you don't... More

We were on our way to the Chicago Botanic Garden and stopped by Max and Benny's, which is just west. The corned beef sandwich was delicious. My wife got the half-sandwich (this seemed much larger than a half) and matzo ball soup. It wasn't grandma's but she'd definitely order it again. The deli also has a sizable bakery and plenty...

I live in the Midwest and good delis are hard to find. Found this on TA and made a point to stop for lunch, and of course some carry out to tote home! Had the Rueben for lunch. Very good. Couldn't get my mouth around it. Cole slaw very good. Fresh rolls of various types from their bakery on the... More

My wife and I visited Max & Benny's Restaurant in Northbrook, IL in February 2015. The facility itself is divided into a large dine-in restaurant across 2 rooms, and a deli on the other side. The staff is very friendly and attentive -- our waitress Janice was extremely nice and quick on the delivery of food and drinks. I had... More

With Coffee I ordered the Poached eggs on English Muffin with fruit and my son ordered the Past Reuben Sandwich and Fries. My breakfast was exactly what I wanted, my son's arrived and it was huge and with fries it was even more... More

Good value during the week if you select from the specials menu. Go for the potato pancake instead of hash browns as a side and the Pumpernickel bagel is highly recommended- or select from the dozen other types! Omelets are a flat type instead of blown up baked. Service is prompt.
