Hardly changed since it opened in 1942, Manny's colorful history is told in the newspaper and magazine clippings on the wisecracking servers. There's corned beef, potato pancakes, and more.

Overrated now trending cafeteria/deli. Dry corned beef on stale rye. So dry that even mayo and mustard made no difference. Potato pancakes as big and as indigestible as hockey pucks. Sure the corned beef was stacked high but it was HIGH AND DRY. maybe I came at a bad time it was after the lunch rush and it looked as if most of the food was kept out too long. Employees are not helpful. They curtly prod you along the cafeteria line as you blindly search for instructions on how to order, no one helps. The prices for a corned beef sandwich is very high. My grandson and myself had one corned beef sandwich, one large hard and greenish potato pancake. Two cups of soup (cold) and two beverages. $56 for a party of two and one of the party is 4 years old that way too much. Sorry , Mannys you didn't cut it this time. I have enjoyed Mannys in the past but things must have changed. The high prices take many patrons by surprise. The customer checking out with his tray of food in tow was shocked when the cashier told him the total.

Where else can I find real potato pancakes with my corned beef? I'm allergic to onions and nearly all other potato pancakes available "commercially" have chives in them; not these and they're bigger and better than most. Good corned beef sandwiches, most of the time-1 in 20 times it'll be dry. That's a 95 % success rate, I'll take it. Owner Ken Raskin seems like a stand up guy. Multi-generational care and passion. Matzo ball soup makes the grade, too. Given the lack of quality delis these days, ESPECIALLY Jewish delis, you could do a lot worse than to pick Manny's- and be hard pressed to find better.

I went a few weeks ago when I visited Chicago.. Had a huge corned beef sandwich with a potato pancake and a bowl of matzo ball chicken soup.. It was excellent! My husband had the pastrami and my step daughter had roast beef.. Everyone was pleased..To the guy complaining about the price, go to McDonalds next time.. You get what you pay for!

Went to manny's years ago and it was very good. I was in the neighborhood so I thought I wouñd stop for a corned beef sandwich. I could not have been more disappointed. Yes there was a lot of meat but it was cold and dry. I came on two really small pieces of rye bread which made the sandwich look bigger. For almost 15.00 dollars I got a cold, dry corned beef sandwich with 2 pickles and three small packs of mustard. I think with all the other opions for food in chicago. I won't be going back to manny's for anything much less the food.. It was terrible!

The sandwiches here are HUGE, and delicious. The pastrami sandwich outshines many of their offerings, with the meat being tender and juicy and succulent. The reuben was also fantastic, but I kept on picking pieces of the pastrami from my fiance's plate. The staff is friendly and they try to keep the gruff "tough guy" attitude as you push your tray through the cafeteria setup. It's a little confusing given that you receive and eat your food and pay as you exit. It's a no-frills type of environment, but the sandwiches are large and substantial.

The sandwiches are large, yes, but size doesn't make up for lack of flavor, decent bread, service, or price. It's hit or miss here, which is a shame given the following Manny's has cultivated. Would I go back? Sure - but not often. I can't afford to spend twice as much for absurd quantity and low quality when I can spend less and have a much more satisfying pastrami elsewhere.

Heard about Manny's and seen on television for years. Made my first trip yesterday. I had a corned beef sandwich, kreplach soup, and a potato pancake. Everything was good, but kind of on the average side. The corned beef was piled high on rye bread with a good pickle on the side. A lot of their other dishes looked great, but did not appear to be available in small portions. Sampling a little of each would be nice. The biggest problem with Manny's, is the price. Everything is very expensive. Manny's is worth a visit, and I would go back...but bring lots of money, $23.75 for what I had!

Amazing corned beef sandwich and potato pancakes. The ambience was old school and the staff was friendly. Loved the mustard with horseradish.
