We have been patrons of Max & Benny's Restaurant for more than 25 years -- ever since it opened in Plaza del Prado in Glenview. The food is authentic Chicago-Jewish...tasty and prepared it should be. Never been disappointed!

If you are looking for a typical Deli, Max and Bennies is the place to go. All the Deli items on the menu are very tasty. The Corned Beef is wonderful and plentiful. You have your choice between the regular sandwiches, which are enormous, or a Junior sandwich, if you are not that hungry. My biggest complaint is the Potato... More

max & bennys is a reliably good Jewish deli that reminds you of every other good Jewish deli you went to as a kid. The bread basket a amazing, matzoh ball soup and corned beef sandwiches are delicious and the bakery is filled with yummy homemade treats. When it's cold & you're not feeling well this has to be your... More

Great pastrami on rye. The motza ball soup is delicious. The dumplings are just like grandma used to make. This New York left full and happy.

A must for us every time we are near Northbrook. You could easily eat here everyday for a month and have something different each day. Lox plate is best I have found. What a treat. Great service.

The hot corned beef sandwich was one of the best I've ever had. It was lean and flavorful. The matzo ball soup was good, but not the best we've had. The chopped liver sandwich and potato pancake were very good. The restaurant was incredibly busy and service was poor . . . Food items forgotten, no refill of pop offered.... More

I visit Max and Benny's fairly often and it is a consistent meal. The portions are generous and while I don't think it's the best deli I've ever been to, it's not bad. We've been there for breakfast, lunch and dinner and there are many options on the menu. I would recommend it as a nice, decent meal that isn't... More

Wow! Lots on the menu and portion sizes were generous. Fresh buns and bagels on the table to start with and filled as needed. We had a table of 18 and the service was quick and friendly. Dawn was an amazing waitress!

The food and service were both outstanding. I had a business lunch and went early before the crowds and was glad I did by lunch time it was packed. I've eaten at many New York Deli's and was equally impressed with the menu selections and friendly atmosphere. I Would highly recommend for any meal!!!!!

Thank Gershuny
