I had steak and eggs. Ordered steak medium rare. It was tough and charred on the edges, probably was frozen. Ordered my eggs over easy, those came out with hard yolks. Hash browns were way overcooked and the portion was tiny. Only good thing was the toast. Service was awful. 3 tables in the whole place. At least 3 waitstaff and 2 managers and noone could take care of the tables. It took me over 10 minutes of waiting after they dropped the check for him to come back and collect my credit card. Don't really know how they are paying the bills for such a big place with terrible food and horrible service. Tourists beware!

Ada's is a nice place to get a New York-style lunch when you're not in much of a hurry. Their matzo ball soup is really delicious, and I love their corned beef sandwiches (particularly the sandwich with potato latkes instead of bread). However, it's pretty obvious that this place doesn't use very fresh ingredients. The desserts look delicious but taste like they came from a factory. Still, if you stick to the deli selections you can get a decent meal for not too much money.

Great Noshes are getting harder to come by than ever, but Ada's meets the challenge. Several of their offerings come very close to the best I've had in NYC. The cornbeef was very lean, surprisingly tender and had that elusive old-world flavor. I was pleasantly surprised by the richness of the chicken and cabbage soups, both were quite authentic and tasted homemade.

I ordered a noodle soup and has the worst experience. It is a clear broth with noodles not so fresh and no taste. Cannot imagine how they can serve that kin of soup worse than the noodle packet made at home.

I work as a bellman down the street from Adas, so I go there a lot. I really like their chicken salad sandwich, and theyre open later than most restaurants in this area. I send people there a lot because of their late hours and I suppose you can say their comfort foods that are pretty much available for the same price at every other restaurant. But when I send people there, they never comment to me on their food or service, which I guess is because you can find a restaurant just like this one where you live, except for the awesome sandwiches.

Pros: Chicken Salad!, Soup!, Late hours.

Cons: Average looks.

When we went into Ada's, we were hoping for our enjoyable Chicago dining experience to continue. While we loved our waitress, when she delivered our order of a lox and onion scramble, we got nothing but fake lox and maybe 2 eggs for $10. It was so disappointing that we asked for the manager. When we told him about our experience, he could not care less. He essentially told us to get lost. There are so many great restaurants in this town....don't waste your time or money on this place. They don't care about customer satisfaction.

I walked in with some friends and was immediately seated...even at 2:00pm the place was crowded, but had enough room for large groups. The food was bountiful and the side dishes could be considered as full entree's. Very flavorful food and attentive wait staff. I would definately recommend this resteraunt to all those people who want a traditional "New York Style" deli!

In Short
This bustling Loop deli does a mean midday business. Ravenous diners who arrive early settle in amidst the mint-green surroundings, while latecomers with grumbling stomachs shuffle toward a long line of waiting patrons.…
