Small seating area. The real gem here is the take out. Best bagels in Chicago period. Best smoked Salmon and whitefish, vegetable cream cheese all chopped by hand , chunky as it should be. The staff remembers everyone. Great corned beef as well.

Have been here a number of times and the food has been very good. Last time we got caught up in a meeting and ended up arriving near closing time. However they served us properly and did not rush us. Very good bagels, soups, Reubens...More

Best Lox Bagels and Cream Cheese sandwich in the suburbs. I missed the substantial LBCCs served in the Chicago and was pleasantly surprised at Chicago Bagel & Bialy Deli in Wheeling. Just like back home! Very friendly staff.

Very good deli. Freshly baked bagels and bialys and pastries. Homemade soup is good, especially split pea. Can dine in or take out. Good lox platter. Nice trays made to order and cookies for special occasions.

The cooks/waitresses are incredibly friendly and seem to know most regulars by name. Accommodating as possible to special dietary requests. Everything prepared fresh daily.
