This is the only laundry service I can recommend to anyone. The quality of their service is superb and it is budget-friendly as well.

yes, I feel so relieved having Nina back at the store after her personal injury! she's been doing alterations for me and I highly recommend her services to anyone. Nina is the only reason I keep going to this store as she's the best at what she's been doing for years. She's the sweetest lady I have known, and probably the most dedicated to her job. As far as dry cleaning, I think it is a little pricey. Alex, however, always greets with the smile and I appreciate such treatment.

Pros: Best tailoring

Cons: Pricey dry-cleaning

I cant believe that everyone likes this place! They ruined two of my sweaters by drying them! I will never go to this cleaners ever! I could have dried my own sweaters for 50 cents, but no I had to go to devrim and pay 30 bucks to have my sweaters resized to fit a barbie doll!

I have been going to DeVrim on Southport for years. Alex, Figo and Nina are extremely nice and Nina is amazing at tailoring. I have taken many different types of things to her to get altered and every single time they are flawless. The staff knows everyone's names and make people feel welcome when they come to their store. They even have treats out for our furry friends! Highly recommended!

I tried these guys out because 1.)They are close to me, and 2.) They had so many good reviews. I don't believe these reviews, because after taking clothes there twice, I've noticed that my shirts do not seem clean, and they are not pressed, well, they have wrinkle spots in various places pressed into the shirts. Also, THEY TAKE OUT ALL OF YOUR COLLAR STAYS and DO NOT give them back to you. You have to pick up random shirt stays from their little basket.

Expect to be greeted by Alex and Nina the minute you walk in to the place!! Alex is such a helpful person and, most importantly, he remembers your name!! Nina (I call her my personal tailor) has been doing alterations for me and she's doing a superb job!!

My girlfriends have been customers of Devrim Cleaners for over a year and have recommended this place for the best alteration service in Chicago. I had an important occassion coming up and my dress had to be altered. Therefore, I wanted the best tailor possible.... and I think, I found her. Nina exceeded my expectations!! She's definitely the best one I ever had!!! I'd highly recommend Nina to anyone who needs his favorite piece to be altered. Thank you, Nina!!! You're the best!!!

All these reviews are not fake, i have worked for him for about 6 months on Ada, he is very nice to every customer, and was the same to me. It is hard to make him mad and he always likes to joke around. Great Person. Great Store.

"Don't be fooled" has apparently not dealt with very many decent merchants as once you meet Figo, you see why he has so many positive reviews. He is truly a remarkably kind and caring man and he remembers his clients names and addresses them as so. What he offers is both RARE and GENUINE! I just sent my daughter from the Humboldt Park/Logan Square area to his Southport location for some tailoring she is seeking to have done. I am in sales and work with business owners. His business DNA should be cloned! It is the negative reviewer whose motive I question?!

Can't find words to describe how grateful I am for the job done by Nina! She's the best seamstress I ever had!!! Fast turnaround and best quality services!!! She's the only person I trust with altering my clothes! Nina, THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!! YOU ARE THE BEST!!!

I had to write a review when I read the "review" by "Don't be fooled." It is obvious that this individual has never been to Devrim Cleaners. Both Figo and his manager Alex are truly friendly and kind and we are always very pleased with the way our clothes are cleaned. We had a particularly tough stain not come out and they insisted that they take it back and try again without my even asking. I know it may seem fake to have so many effusive compliments for a dry cleaners but after having gone there for years, I can tell you that these reviewers are being honest. Figo is a good man and he maintains a great business.

Cons: Can't think of any.

At Devrim Cleaners, you start out by being a customer, then move quickly to being a friend and loyal supporter. Google Figo Topal, and see the unbiased editorial articles that have been written about him in the Trib and Suntimes The service is impeccable and WAY above and beyond. What other dry cleaner will open up on a Sunday just to help out a customer in a bind?--true story--or make a home delivery (which is not part of their service) to a sick customer? These are not slick, avaricious businessmen. Figo, Mina and Alex are the real deal, and that is a rare find.

By all of these great reviews.. Reviews should be honest, genuine opinions that were spurred on by excellent - or poor service. Take a look at the dates on these reviews - so far, ALL 46 reviews (as of 6/28/07) have been posted in the last 2 months! Funny, since in the several years Citysearch has had this rating system in place, I think every other cleaner in Chicago COMBINED has maybe 10 reviews - but this tiny little place (That doesn't even do their own cleaning!) has 46 reviews in 2 months? Smells fishy to me - he either got all his buddies to log in and post, or he's bribing customers with discounts for positive reviews... DON"T BE FOOLED!!!!!!

Figo Topal is one of the most honest and understanding business men that I have ever met. Although my relationship with him has not been as long as others (some customers have been working with him for 15 years or more) I am confident that I have found a reliable dry cleaner that will care for my personal belongings as if they are his own. Figo is persistent in his stain removal and will not return products to his customers that do not exceed expectations. I have given Figo clothing that is stained and he will work on my clothing until the stain is removed regardless of the additional costs that he must cover. He shows the utmost respect and appreciation for not only his customers and employees alike. He welcomes everyone into his business as if it is his home. Some customers prior to my review have stated that Figo ?is an alcoholic, damaging himself and his family? and that he ?put downs during political discussions on our core American values.?. Not only is this a grammatically incorrect statement, it is false. Figo has worked very hard to get where he is and does nothing but live daily by the core American family values which I practice daily. And no, I am not a ?boozie? as a previous writer may assume. I don?t find the importance in commenting on the ?alcoholic? statement because frankly it is comical. Figo has a family which he adores and he would lay down his life before he would do anything to harm them. I am certain that this opinion on Figo?s political views is simply an assumption. I have never witnessed Figo sharing any sort of political opinion within the walls of his business. In fact, during the recent Alderman election, Figo would not post signs for either party in an attempt level the playing field but he did provide equal literature for his customers to review on behalf of both candidates. I am a customer who has NEVER been unhappy with the service I have received and I will be a customer of Figo?s for as long as my life allows.

I travel quite a lot, and most of the time I fly overseas. Before I go, I used to bring a
Lots of laundry to Devrim Cleaners. During long travels I don?t want bother with the cleaners on strange lands or pay premium hotel prices.
I used to give very detailed descriptions for my needs even sometimes I wrote notes on them so during the peak hours he may forget, what I said.
Many times my orders were late, before the travel and I didn?t have time for corrections, the rare buttons were lost, even some small damages, stains were there even more visible. Under the friendly look he was argumentative, defended the mistakes, then after awhile he offers a compensation I don?t need and have no time.
Nina is good. She is genuinely kind and helpful person. I guess she is Figo?s wife, there are times, she is treated very badly even yelled near customers.
My understanding of cleaner is fast, efficient service with experience and knowledge, I don?t go to the cleaner to drink booze or make political discussions or eat cookies. There are better places for these. Some of my friends and neighbors think he is an alcoholic, damaging himself and his family.
These five star compliments are possibly from coming from those booze buddies, and also I don?t want to listen, put downs during political discussions on our core American values.
So I don?t think he is a reliable cleaner and efficient one.

I highly recommend Devrim Cleaners.

Figo and Alex have been taking care of me since 1999, during which time I have never had a bad experience. I?ve had my up?s and down?s with numerous dry cleaners before Devrim, and I don?t plan on going back to them any time soon. Not only do you go to Devrim for excellent service and quality of work, but it?s a rare thing in today?s world to have such amazing personality in a dry cleaners. When you walk into Devrim, you feel as if you?ve went into your local hangout to see what?s going on, while Figo knows your name, asks how?s things are going, he offers you a soda, candy, a dog treat if I take my dog, a beer if I looked like I?ve had a bad day, and even a tootsie roll for my wife at home since he knows she likes them. I?ve gone through the reviews and couldn?t believe the cyberlady gave Devrim below average, but then I looked at her other five reviews on Citysearch and realized that it?s her best rating she?s ever given. In the 8 years I?ve been going to Devrim, they have been able to get out multiple stains for me but have always told me there is no guarantee that the stain could be removed, and he would see what they could do. Figo is amazing person, talented, professional, and hard-working.

I strongly recommend Devrim Cleaners to anyone.

First let me state that finding a good dry cleaner in the City of Chicago is very difficult. And ratings are relative when there are far too many poor dry cleaners. This establishment is run by very nice people. After reading the reviews, besides being customer friendly I was hoping to find an expert at both dry cleaning and laundry. Don't confuse friendly customer service with competence. In my opinion, this establishment is below average. To stand out and be the best, stain removal needs to be done not only with care but with expert knowledge. It's not. A good dry cleaner needs to differentiate between types of stains and the best solution to address the problem without making it worse. Why would you bring something into a dry cleaner with a stain only to return home with a worse stain in a different color than the orginial stain!? And when it was brought to their attention, it was if that's standard operating procedure. I also expect good fininishing. By that I mean the pressing of shirts should not have "puckers" around the seams on the body of the shirt and on the cuffs. Finishing at this establishment is also below average. Six shirts stuffed into one plastic bag, no collar supports and puckers isn't my idea of an outstanding drycleaner. I 've tried this establishment on numerous occasions and because of what I've experienced, in my opinon it's not the best and it's time for me to move on.

Great service. I bring in my dress shirts every other week and they always come back perfect. They fixed a seem in a sweater and it looked better than the day I bought it. The service is top notch. Figo and Alex are the best dry cleaners in the city.

Figo and Alex are great they never forgot my name from the first time I stepped in the door. I moved to Lincoln Park and still take all my clothes there to get drycleaned. What other drycleaner can you drop off your clothes on a Saturday afternoon and hangout drinking a beer with other people.

I have used DeVrim Cleaners for the past 9 years. Initially I lived around the corner and moved to Bucktown and now Ukranian Village. Figo and Alex have exceptional customer service and attention to detail. If a shirt, pants, suit is not perfect they will keep it until it is. Very few...if any will do this. Is your dry cleaners so good that you would drive from Ukranian Village to Lincoln Park? Mine is...you should use them. Thanks DeVrim!!

Devrim Cleaners is by far Chicago's best dry cleaning service known to mankind! Devrim provides excellent quality dry cleaning & tailoring services.

I have been a completly satisfied customer of Figo (owner) for 3 1/2 years now, & would not consider using any other dry cleaner inthe city.

The cleaning service is excellent, but I enjoy the personal treatment I receive from Figo, Alex and Nina every time I visit their store. They greet you with a friendly smile and hello, offer you a drink of your choice, know the names of my family and hand out tootsie rolls and dog treats on every visit.

Once you try Devrim for the first time, you will be hooked on their personal service style. !

I've been a customer of Figo's for over ten years, since he first opened his store on Southport. I was struck that he remembered my name after my first visit, and he's been my "go-to" guy for alterations and for the general care and maintenance nice clothes require ever since. He understands construction and materials, which is a great help when it comes to recommending care options or making me look good. More importantly, he understands people, and the care he takes with them is remarkable. I've come to know his family, and feel so welcomed every time I step into his shop. Lucky for me, he's opened a second store on Rockwell, in my current neighborhood. I trust him implicitly, and you won't find better service, or a more generous and good natured group.

DeVrim is not only the best dry cleaner in town, Figo and Alex provide the best customer service I have ever had. Even though I moved out of the neighborhood almost 8 years ago, I still make the drive to DeVrim passing at least 5 other dry cleaners on the way. They go out of their way to be sure everything is cleaned and pressed to perfection even sending things back through a second time for a tough stain that other cleaners would say wouldnt come out! On top of it, they are friendly and hospitable and always have cookies for the dog!

Figo and Alex do the best job and offer the best service of any cleaners that I have used in any neighborhood inside or outside of the city. I have been using their services for just about 3 years now and I have never been any less than 100% satisfied. Figo really knows how to run a business and I am sure that anyone who uses this cleaners even only once would recognize the difference.

Cons: none

Figo and Alex are fantastic. With all of the customers they serve, it is amazing that they both know each of them by name. I couldn't ask for better service. I first used Devrim because they were the closest cleaners to my apartment - they were on my block. But, even though I recently moved several blocks away, I continue to use Devrim (even though it requires that I get in my car and drive past a half dozen other neighborhood cleaners). As a side note, don't miss Figo's New Year's Eve celebration...always a great time, and the guests usually spill out onto the sidewalk (the keg of ice cold beer and bottles and bottles of wine and liquor - all of them holiday gifts from satisfied customers - seem to draw crowds from all over the neighborhood).

Figo, the owner, and his entire team are wonderful! Not only do they do a fantastic job with your clothes, they are all so great to work with. Figo gets to know all his clients and makes you feel right at home whenever you go in the shop. With so many choices out there, waste not a second more and go to Devrim Cleaners!

When I moved to Chicago I knew very few people and lived just around the corner from DeVrim. There were many times that I was second guessing my decision to move to Chicago and every time I'd round the corner to go to work Figo would remind me it was a good decision. And he never actually said it out loud. It was just his genuine interest in my life and the warm smile he would give me every time he saw me. I was a small town girl used to everyone knowing me and everything being familiar. Now it's 5 years later and I couldn't imagine living anywhere else. And I couldn't imagine visiting any other dry cleaner every Saturday morning. Not only has Figo become a member of my family, a man I admire, a father I look up to, but he has become someone I turn to when something good happens or if I want to complain. Shortly after my move to Chicago Alex was added to the DeVrim family. Figo couldn't ask for a more perfect apprentice. Alex is kind, giving, and professional. Figo is so lucky to have such a dependable co-worker. All in all, I do believe I might travel hundreds of miles just to drop of my dry cleaning....well, probably not 100. But I have moved twice since that apartment on Fletcher and I still see Figo every Saturday morning. I love you Figo! Carrie

Pros: Attention to detail

When my wife and I moved to Chicago a year ago, we thought ourselves lucky to have a dry cleaner within sight of our house. But we don't go to that dry cleaner. We walk an extra block or so to Devrim, where we can expect a handshake and a hearty hello from the affable, funny, hard-working Figo and Alex (Alex being the good-looking one). They do a terrific job of cleaning and alterations at a fair price. But that's not the main attraction of Devrim. Figo and Alex aren't just great dry cleaners--they are neighbors, in every sense of the word. I sometimes stroll down there on a Saturday afternoon for no reason but to chat with the groups of folks who inevitably gather there for a cool beverage and a sampling of Figo's charming and wacky humor. Of course the New Year's Eve party is a draw as well. I'd never given a second thought to my dry cleaners, except as a place to get something done. Now I think of it as part of my weekend relaxation--like an old-fashioned barber shop or hitching post or general store. Figo and Alex are quite simply the best in Chicago.

Pros: Service, competence, friendliness

Cons: Figo's gut getting a little large.

Figo and Alex are great! They know everyone that comes into Figo's store on a first name basis (including babies and dogs!) and are always willing to stay open late if you run in just before closing time. Additionally, my clothes are always cleaned well, on time, and they do a nice job with alterations and tailoring. We have been going to Figo's since moving to Chicago, and wouldn't even think about going anywhere else. Figo's annual New Years Eve party also is a blast.

Figo is the 'American Dream!' He has worked exausting hours for over 11 years. During that time I have had the pleasure of getting to know Figo and can say he considers me his friend. The feeling is definitely mutual. Above all of the positive feedback about Devrim Cleaners, the thing that separates this shop from every other local shop is the fact that I am not what you consider a good customer and Figo still treats me like a 'big spender.' Ten shirts a month is about average, hardly worth the time to say Hello, yet Figo is always quick to shake my hand, call me by my name and offer me tea or any beverage I choose. If you need a great Dry Cleaner who understands the Professional and the Personal....Devrim Cleaners is the only choice.

Even though I am moving to Naperville, I will still make the trip to Southport for my dry cleaning. Sound crazy? Not if you knew Figo. Over the past eight years I have been going to Devrim, Figo has been reliable and accomodating. He has altered many bride's maid dresses for me and for my friends. Beyond his exceptional work, Figo offers something different. He has a gift of SPIRIT and KINDNESS.

When I tell them that I am friends with my dry cleaner. I've been going to Figo since 1993. When I moved out of the neighborhood it took me all of two weeks and one burnt shirt that the Lincoln Park dry cleaner wouldn't fess up to burning to make me return to Figo. In comparison, Figo once lost my shirt, but before I even noticed it he told me about it and asked me how much the shirt cost new. I told him and he gave me a choice of money or free dry cleaning until his debt was paid. I doubt there are any other dry cleaners as honest.

I've since moved back to the neighborhood and have added a wife and children, all of whom look forward to seeing Figo. There are treats for my kids and a choice of beverage for the adults.

This place is unbelievable! This is the first dry cleaners I have been to where people drive from the suburbs to have their clothes cleaned. The service is excellent, I don't know how Figo and Alex remember everbody's name by face, but honestly they do. The alterations are outstanding, I even pass on having my clothes altered for free by the department store so I can have Figo alter them. This store is the model for the neighborhood dry cleaner, great service and personality, and the only dry cleaner with free beer on Saturday.

All of our clothes are cleaned and pressed perfectly! Figo is a perfectionist and has returned shirts because he thinks they need to go through the cleaner another time! He is thoughtful, kind, even helping carry your dry cleaning to your car! What a place!

Fortunately Figo opened a second location in Lincoln Square! Throughout the 6 years that I have lived in Chicago, I haven't been loyal to a dry cleaners until I found Devrim Cleaners. The customer service is miles above any other establishment in Chicago. I am always greated by name and Figo always remembers statements I mentioned in previous visits.

In addition to the customer service, I have always been very impressed with the cleaning service and the alterations are flawless. Figo has done wonders with bridesmaid dresses, pants and shirts and I recommend all of my friends to switch to Devrim.

Figo, Alex, & Nina - these are some of the nicest people I know.

We moved away from the neighborhood and still come back to DeVrim on Southport. Nina will make you look stunning in that bridemaids dress or those maternity pants that dont' quite flatter. Alex will help you to your car week after week.

Figo will do what ever he can to help - with a bustle, a purse strap, a favorite t-shirt. He will share his pizza, Turkish treats, tales of foreign lands, that delight he takes in his kids. Stay and chat or grab a tootsie roll and run. You don't need to look around for a more caring, dedicated bunch.

And I saw all my neighbors there too!

This is a great neighborhood dry cleaner. Figo is a man who understands that dry cleaning is a service business. He knows your name, always shakes your hand and offers tootsie rolls for the people and dog biscuits for the dogs. Not to mention Turkish coffee.

And the alterations are top notch... Figo once took apart a pair of my pants (from the GAP) because the seam was crooked and that was the only way to get a level hem. And he refused to take money for hemming my mom's new pants.

It's hard for any other dry cleaner to compete!! He knows your name and greets you with a handshake and smile every time you enter his store. He always has a treat for your dog and if you time it right, he will offer you a turkish coffee or a cold beverage. He is always working hard to accomodate your busy and unexpected schedule. I've been going to DeVrim for 10 years (even though I moved out of the neighborhood) and consider Figo, his family, Alex and Nina the best best service company in Chicago, as well as, friends.

Devrim is more than a dry cleaning service. Its owner, Figo, has literally transformed his business into something that represents the best of human values. Heart, pride in your work, generosity, and hospitality. When you walk in the door you feel like you have entered into Figo's home. It won't be long before he offers you a Turkish Coffee!

Thanks Figo for setting the standard for customer service and the human spirit. You are an inspiration to us all.

Upon entering Devrim Cleaners, you are greeted with a hello by name, generous smiles, and of all things, an offer of a freshly-made Turkish Coffee. The owner, Figo and his assistant Alex not only know extactly who all their customers are by name, but also remember exactly what you dropped off the last time. Not only are the cleaning services excellent, but Figo is a master tailor, who can perform miracles on women's and men's clothes alike. He even does extensive tailoring on men's suits.

Figo and Alex also maintain a community atmosphere in thier little shop by holding occasional parties, like thier famous New Year's Eve party, complete with authentic Turkish homemade dishes.

If you are at all close to 3134 North Southport, you have no other choice but to patronize Devrim.

A Turkish Superman and a Mexican Wonder-Woman join forces to create the best Dry Cleaning customer service story in town. A true American success story!

You know what's the best thing about these folks? In this day and age, they actually care. Honest. There's nothing impersonal about the way they do business. They do a fabulous job in the time frame you need it, are wonderfully friendly, and I challenge you to walk out of there without a smile.

They've taken a hit since the Rockwell Brown Line station closed down, but I still make the trip. Give 'em a chance, and I bet you will too!

Not only will Figo clean your shirts/pants/whatevers, he also knows that we sometimes can't make the "normal work hours" and he is often at his Rockwell location before his posted "store hours" and will often allow me to come in early to pick up my things. Also, while I was in the hospital; he sent his most sincere concerns up to me in the hospital, and when I returned, he welcomed me home with a warm handshake and a cold BEvERage... He is a true gem!
