the last of the 50"s deli's lives

What can I say about the Bagel? Pickles great chicken soup, great pastries, and wonderful memories. Located in a shopping mall that has gone modern, it reminds me of Devon Avenue in the 50's and 60's. A great bagel, and interesting people.

I have been eating at The Bagel for many years. The menu is restricted for vegans, which would ordinarily make me look elsewhere, but I come back for several reasons. First, it feels like an old fashioned deli, and some of the waitstaff fit right into that vibe. Free delicious pickles and bagel chips when you sit down! Delicious huge... More

I think I did a review a few years back of The Bagel. It remains a real Jewish-Kosher deli restaurant, with great Rumanian eggplant salad, whitefish salad, real pastrami sandwiches, kishke, gefilte fish, the works. Large portions, warm family atmosphere, lots of tables and booths. Can't find this kind of place in the city anymore.

I was at the Old Orchard Shopping Center and took advantage of the opportunity to have something to eat at The Bagel. I don't often get to The Bagel but I've previously enjoyed eating here. There are two "The Bagel" Restaurants, one in the Lakeview neighborhood of Chicago, and this one in suburban Chicago ... Skokie, IL. I like the... More

it was just what one would expect of a place named the Bagel Factory. It was good, rich, tasty and just what they promised.

The air conditioning was a little high, so it was cold, take a jacket when you go. The waiters were really nice. The coffee too light and not tasty at all. But the omelettes a poetry. Very big, so go prepared, and tasty, specially the mediterranean omelette. The bread very good. If you want to taste the sweet stuff you... More
