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.

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!

Best Jewish deli in Chicago. The pastrami or corn beef is piled high on moist rye bread. This neighborhood staple has not changed since they opened. All the food is mouth-watering. Seasoned patrons constantly come for their comfort food.

I didn't get the hype. It's basically an expensive jewish cafeteria. The food was actually good. But there is a dinner rush and we came after. Once they run out, they don't prepare more. I don't think I'll be going back.

Ruben sandwich w/ potato pancake, side of soup and a drink $24.75....this place is an absolute robbery, the sandwich was good, too over stuffed with meat on a small piece of rye "soup" bread, either less meat or bigger bread, my opinion.... the kreplach soup was only two pieces in chicken was mediocre, they did have alot of other things to offer that looked good but you have to order a full order of them...I grabbed a paper menu to see what they fully have and the prices are outrageous to say the least.. I might try this place again but not likely..

This place is a Chicago institution! Great food and fun service. You've got to have the pastrami on rye, latkes and matzo ball soup.

Manny's pastrami is superb. Loaded with flavor and piled high on rye, it will top off your tank. Like so many fantastic food experiences in Chicago, what Manny's lacks in ambiance it more than delivers in the quality of their food. Lunch and dinner crowds can be crazy. Try to hit it around late afternoon.

Manny's is a Chicago institution. I started coming to Manny's as a child, back when Halsted was 'Jewtown', Chernin's Shoes was where Baller's shopped and Mystel's Warehouse was where you bought your next season's wardrobe on layaway. After a hard day of Ballin' on a Budget, my grandparents would treat me to lunch. Manny's had the best corned beef and pastrami then, and in my opinion more than thirty years later it's still the best in the city!
