I grew up going to The Bagel, but I mostly went to another location that has since closed further south of this one. The bagels and schmear taste exactly the same, along with their golden yellow matzo ball and kreplach soup, which I appreciate. My...More

I hadn't been here in a while, and I was running errands around dinner time so I stopped by for a nosh. OMG The matzo ball soup was amazing. Giant baseball sized dumplings as light as a feather and so tender. Just like mamma used...More

I was here in July, and they delivered to the Inn that I was staying at. I couldn't resist their "Golden Chicken Broth with Homemade Matzo Ball" on the menu and had some delivered to hotel for a late snack. It was fantastic! The Matzo...More

This is a great place for deli in Chicago. You can get all the Jewish favorites - matzo ball soup, kishki, rugalah, corned beef, pastrami, chopped liver, etc. Large portions, good service. YUM!

This used to be one of my favorite places. In the past they were known for their Jewish ethnic Delicatessen style cuisine. Generally both the deli counter and the restaurant staff has been very friendly and very helpful. Today not so much. Clearly they have...More

It was sort of sad to go to the Bagel. This was a once thriving deli in Old Orchard. We went with some friends that were in from Florida. We got there at 6:00 PM, which is prime dinner time and it as just about...More
