I returned home for the CUBS World Series and disappointed they didn't win Game 4.. BUT at O'Hare airport saw an Eli's Cheesecake World vendor!!!! The sun just came out!

Walking to gate and noticed they have a popup location outside B9. You can buy a slice, a tart or the entire cheesecake!! All of the cheesecakes look appetizing. I settled on the lemon tart. Just enough yummy goodness to take the edge off!! Stop by if your in the B concourse, or have time to spare and have a... More

There is no other better cheesecake sources than this (including cheesecakes I try making from scratch). Save money by stocking up on "imperfections" of traditional plain cheesecake. They can be kept in freezer. Just serve with strawberry preserves/jelly, chocolate syrup, pecan pralines, caramel, etc. and wallah! Instant dessert with a bang :)

Thick, rich, but not too sweet. I love all the flavors of cheesecakes there, and it is reasonable in price.

I was passing thru the B concourse in Chicago O'hare airport and happened upon Eli's. Every flavor of cheesecake offered seemed to be my favorite but I settled on a slice of chocolate cheesecake. During my flight to Mexico, I opened the package to find a slice of Espresso cheesecake. In defense of the cashier, I may have confused her... More

If you are a fan of cheescake you must taste this one. It's not in plain site but visiting it is so worth it. I tasted the Oreo and the red velvet and both were amazing. They sell all sorts of other sweets as well. The prices are fair. Very high quality cheescake. I highly recommend it.

Let me start of by saying the store was clean, most of the staff was helpful and nice, the desserts looked good. However the one bathroom they have was so dirty we ended up leaving and going to McDonalds to use the restroom.

YEP, not a fancy place, why of course it is the outlet, but it is very cute inside, Stop in on your way in or out of town, a few miles down Irving Park Road, a good alternate route if your going to the city and the traffic is horrible. All kinds of goodies to taste and take and even... More

Stopped in since its been years and not disappointed! Best cheesecake on the planet! Their service is also untouchable! If you are in Chicago it is a MUST visit! The prices in the store are a fraction of what you see online! This IS a Chicago staple!

A visit to Eli's Cheesecake World won't soon been forgotten. Upon entering the modest cafe/retail shop, it's hard to imagine these heavenly delights are made just yards away behind the inner walls. The selections of cheesecakes and other yummy dessert items is awesome. You'll have to try a slice or two to taste test for for favorite kind. Free samples... More
