Orland Street Special always (but jump at the chance whenever they offer their chili)
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!
Hot Pastrami was delish. Bring your appetite and plenty of napkins!
Its no Manny's.
The manager/owner is awesome and def get the second half of your beast of a sandwich wrapped!
The best deli sandwich in Chicago.
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.
Do not use your phone. But do order Perrys favorite
You will leave in a food coma...
Go ahead. Talk on your cell phone. Please. They don't mind at all.
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.
These sandwiches are HUGE
eat a massive sandwich. don't get caught using your cell phone.
