I love this deli - authentic Jewish (but not kosher) food. Pastrami and corned beef sandwiches are great. Matzah Ball and Kreplach - wonderful. For some reason I always see someone I know when I go here. If you are in the mood for great deli, this is the place. Also, if you have a large group, they have a... More

Everything you used to have in a small local deli but spread out in a big restaurant in a popular mall with tons of parking. Large portions of everything--whether potato pancakes or the garlic-soaked pureed eggplant or your classic deli sandwiches with onion rings. Both tables and booths--lots of them. Food the way you remember it.

After visiting the nearby Illinois Holocaust Museum, I wanted to continue the Jewish experience with my granddaughter on our "history" date. The Bagel Restaurant was the perfect place to enjoy some Jewish style foods and continue the discussion of what we had seen. The menu offers all of the traditional items. I enjoyed Liver & Onions with a side of... More

Very reliable kosher-style meal and snack selections, prepared as Grandma used to make them. Great soups, breads, potato pancakes, dill pickles, coleslaw, soft drinks accompany oversized sandwiches, giant meal plates and excellent fish preparations (from lox to jellied whitefish and fish salad).

This place is located in the mall on the east side. You will not be awed by the atmosphere and it is a bit pricy, but the motza ball soup is great. If you are looking for something quick, tasty, and filling just get the soup. You will not be disappointed. If you have deeper pockets the Ruben sandwich is... More

Try the kishki (spelling?), rueben, tongue and matzo ball soup! Everything I've had here I have really enjoyed! I'm in the military stationed overseas at the moment and every time I come home to visit my grandma and I come here to eat.

Chicago isn't awash in Jewish delis, so we have to take what we can get. Fortunately, The Bagel does a lot of things right, particularly its chicken hot pot, gefilte fish, and bagels. My favorite Jewish breakfast food is fried matzo, but I can't really recommend this restaurant's version. But sit me down with their complimentary pickles and bread basket,... More
