Time Out says

Chicago’s most quintessential restaurant isn’t a steakhouse or a laboratory-like kitchen putting out cutting-edge cuisine. It’s a cafeteria. Decide what you want before you get in line at this 70-year-old institution. You’ll pass plates of Jell-O and chicken salad, but this line moves too quickly to decide on the spot. Our advice? Grab one of the oversized corned beef or pastrami sandwiches, a potato pancake on the side and a packet of Tums for dessert.

Some of the best sandwiches in the city! I have always passed by this place and have seen long lines. With the recent expansion, I decided to give this place a try. You get a lot of food for the price. I have the turkey sandwich, corn, mash potatoes and potato pancake. This was honestly some of the best best meat I have ever had on a sandwich. Clearly, I had ordered to much but I wanted to eat it all! The line is long but goes quick. You need to know what you are doing when you get in line. This place is a must if you haven't been already but be sure to know what you want before hand if it's your first time. These guys are not messing around.
