    The torchbearer for a dying breed of Jewish delis and diners in Chicago, Manny's has endured for more than a half-century in the South Loop thanks to massive and delicious pastrami sandwiches. Read more

    Hailing from the NYC area of Jewish deli's, Manny's holds it weight. The sandwiches are loaded high, the meat tender and full of flavor, and the bread is not dry. Highly recommended!

    If you’re heading there for breakfast, we suggest the eggs or French toast—mostly because either is served with Manny's famous corned beef, pastrami, salami or turkey. Oh, and ask for an extra latke. Read more

    Wow, we will be forever ruined for deli sandwiches now. You’ve never seen pastrami piled so high, trust me! My Reuben made three meals, three delicious meals. Also, their 1000 island is the best.

    This is holy ground; this is THE Deli in Chicago! This is all of Chicago, from stock traders to truck drivers, and all are here for the spectacular food! Any time of the day to make you feel good!

    The corned beef sandwich is big enough for two, better yet, take it to go w/extra rye bread; pair that with some sauerkraut, Swiss cheese and Russian dressing to make three or four reuben sandwiches!

    Heaven for meat lovers! Must visit place in Chicago, especially if you like corned beef. The portions are incredibly big, so take one sandwich for 2.

    Classic Chicago establishment. Rub elbows with anyone who's anyone. Try the corned beef on rye. Pass on the potato pancake. Chicken noodle soup, Eli's cheesecake, spaghetti, and a Green River.

    An excellent Chicago experience. I recommend the corned beef and kreplach soup.

    Delicious soups - both matzo ball and kreplach. The Turkey Pastrami sandwich is outstanding, but half a sandwich is plenty when combined with soup and a potato pancake

    The cornbeef sandwich was the best - enough for 2 people or save some for later....potato pancake, bread pudding & Diet Coke.

    don't get anything else besides the Corned Beef sandwich. it's one of the most famous sandwiches in the world, so don't miss out!

    Of all the corned beef sandwiches you can get in town, none has quite the same reputation as the one you'll find at Manny's.

    I had the corned beef sandwich with the potato pancake. The corned beef was flavorful and juicy. The pancake was also great.

    The legendary South Loop spot sells its pancakes on the cafeteria line and markets dry mixes you can take home for $5. (We won't tell Bubbe you didn't grate those potatoes yourself, promise.) Read more

    Potato cakes, matzoh ball soup and hot corned beef on rye as well as hob-nobbing w/the politicos -- just make sure you call a cab from Flash before you're done! (via Scoville) Read more

    Everything here is good, but never seems quite on par with New York delis. The pastrami and corned beef have great flavor, but can be too chewy or dry.

    The Half and Half (Pastrami, Corned Beef) on Rye is my favorite. The Short Ribs and Veal Breast are also great.

    Awesome throw back restaurant. Hasn't changed since the 1960s and the corned beef is out of this world.

    Get the BLT or their signature corned beef w/ 2 extra slices of rye! Your sandwich will come w/ enough meat to make an extra sandwich for later!

    Serves up a legendary corned beef, though I’m partial to their pastrami. @MayorEmanuel had his last meal at Manny’s before descending into the time vortex that claimed him.http://bit.ly/v5tg6p

    You can't go wrong with the combo (corned beef & pastrami). A must have if in Chicago, try Manny's.

    Excellent cornbeef 2 people can eat off one sandwich or save the other half for lunch or dinner. Very please.

    The sandwich is big as the place - the corn beef is the bomb. I suggest not going at lunch time - it gets grouped quickly - so go a little early.

    Really scare the cardiologist: when getting the corned beef and potato pancake, order a Kishke w/gravy plus rice pudding for dessert (just don't do it too often and you'll probably live).

    Try to avoid coming in between 12:15-1... if you're looking to avoid the crowds that is... but right after that things are pretty clear starting around 1:00.

    The knish--mashed potatoes surrounding a succulent mound of meat--is incomparable.
