I grew up on the north shore moved to New York 5 years ago ??My sister suggested we dine at max & Benny, which use TO BE OUR FAVORITE DELI on the NORTH SHORE. What a DISAPPOINTMENT.

The table- menu??s ??water glasses ??booth & floor was filthy dirty we got up and walked out!

I cannot believe this restaurant has not been condemned by the health department ??which I am calling first thing tomorrow!

Pros: NONE

Cons: HORRIBLE

The food is pretty decent, but the service was a little under par and the place wasn't even busy. The price for some of the food is a little too high for the food and service.

Food is good, but customer service horrible. I went there recently with my family for my anniversary. The bill was over $100.00. My wife had a coupon for $25.00 which I discovered when I presented it had expired 4 days prior. Despite being a resident of Highland Park and a long time customer, the person in charge REFUSED to honor it saying it had expired. True, but I felt that losing me as a customer was certainly not worth $25.00. I would rather go back to a restaurant where someone is appreciative of my business.

Here's a place for good, solid Jewish deli. Very good soups and sandwiches. The stuffed veal breast was done just right and seasoned perfectly, but the stuffing was nothing to write home about. The deli fried matza with lots of corned beef, salami, onions was a real treat. Family friendly. Parking is good, although the lot can get crowded at times. We've never had to wait too long for a table. If you like Jewish deli style food, definitely check this place out.

Pros: Solid Jewish deli food

Love the food. A little noisy at times. Children not always controlled by parents.
Do try their Chocolate Soda NY style

Pros: That true deli feeling

Cons: Hard to park

Despite the editors' comments, I've never had to wait more than 5-10 minutes for a table - the bigger challenge may be finding a parking spot on the weekend, despite the large lot. Max & Benny's does the "Jewish deli" very well, but nothing else about the menu is remarkable. The decor is low-end and dated and the service is simply average. If you're in the area and have a hankering for a pastrami, stop in. Otherwise, don't feel like you're missing out on anything.

Pros: Authentic Jewish Deli, Seating

Cons: Decor, Rest of menu

My family is from the NYC/NJ area, so you could probably guess that I'm pretty picky when it comes to Jewish deli fare. Having arrived in Chicago under the typical East Coast bias that good Jewish food just doesn't exist out here, I was more than pleasantly surprised at the quality of the cuisine at Max & Benny's. This is the real thing, youseguys, so whether you're an East Coast transplant, a Chicago lifer, or someone from a place where Jewish delis don't exist at all, you need to swing by this suburban deli for some authentic bagels or bialys!
