I wish TripAdvisor had a rating of "good." It seems like a long jump from "very good" to "average." So I give the Chicago Deli a "good." I went here with my daughter. She had fish and chips which was the Lenten special. I tried one of her French fries. It was not crisp. She said her fish was very... More

They changed hands in October so I was skeptical. Happy to report, nothing has changed. Got the Chi Dog combo with onion rings, hubby got the patty melt and a Chicago beer. Delicious pub fare, friendly service.

Good sandwiches, cute names for many of the sandwiches. If you don't fine a sandwich listed on their menu, just ask, they will cheerfully make anything you want. The hot dogs are great, RED HOTS, haven't had them since a stopover at O'hare Airport.

When I was a kid my parents sent me to visit my aunt who lived in downtown Chicago and eating Vienna Beef Chicago hot dogs was an exotic culinary treat for a little kid from San Francisco. It was right up there with seeing great art, watching chicks hatching, going into a coal mine, and touring the German submarine at... More

Some really good sandwiches here. Freshly made, generous amounts of meat and cheese. Gets very busy at lunch, and can be very noisy. Not a place for a quiet chat, but you can probably watch that important game - the TV is always on. I like to call in my order, and their website has their menu clearly printed and... More

I think that its a bit overpriced, but has a large variety of food to offer. Cute names of the sandwiches, and large menu choices

Compact fast service deli is located in a shopping center next to a supermarket. Order at the counter and they bring your sandwich to the table in the small dining room. Clerks were friendly and helpful. Sandwiches were mid size which is a good thing in my mind. Deli portions are often too large. Bread was average as were the... More

Decent food, prices OK. Good place for a sandwich, much better than the chain restaurants.
