Perry's Deli

The closest thing Chicago has to the “soup Nazi,” Perry’s is an institution with a fiercely enforced policy of no cell phones. The long lunchtime waits are rewarded with deli classics, like egg salad sandwiches; hot, juicy pastrami; and “Perry’s Favorite”—corned beef, Jack cheese, coleslaw and Russian dressing piled high on fresh rye. Earlier hours offer breakfast takes on similar classics, including the Mad Moscow, a mess of eggs scrambled with pastrami, corned beef and Russian dressing, piled onto a toasted bagel.

This great Loop lunch spot offers high-quality deli sandwiches the size of your head—eat half at lunch and take the other half home for dinner. And seriously, if your phone rings while you're there, don't take the call.
