    Orland Street Special always (but jump at the chance whenever they offer their chili)

    The long lunchtime waits rewarded with deli classics, like egg salad sandwiches, juicy pastrami, and Perry’s Favorite—corned beef, Jack cheese, coleslaw and Russian dressing piled high on fresh rye. Read more

    Best and biggest sandwiches in the loop. Best chili in the Chicago-land area. However is recommend picking one of the two. Otherwise you may need a friend to wheel you out on a gurney.

    If you go there be sure to bring your appetite, sandwiches are humongous! Oh and by the way, DO NOT, under any circumstances, answer your cell phone while in the restaurant!

    At Perry's Deli on Franklin, if you have your cell phone out, you'll either be yelled at over a loudspeaker, not served, or both.

    There's a fiercely enforced policy of no cell phones. The wait is rewarded with deli classics, like egg salad sandwiches and “Perry’s Favorite”—corned beef, Jack cheese, coleslaw and Russian dressing.

    Try the chili. It is only available Tues and Thur but well worth it. It is spicy with a taste of brown sugar. Very good.

    order an Ormand Street but ask for pastrami rather than roast beef. Has slaw, russian dressing (their secret), corned beef, pastrami and cheese.
