Max & Benny's has been around for many years, and proves that good service and delicious food is the best combination to keep you going. The restaurant serves any kind of food you can think and all of it is delicious. Try stopping by their bakery section for a cookie or pastry after your meal.

Wonderful selection of food choices. Gives you deli choices like pastrami or brisket that remind you of the first deli experience. Remember to ask for a dessert especially the brownie. Before you leave check out the sweets located in the front of the restaurant.. A must if you are visiting the North Suburbs of Chicago.

This was the first time I ate at this restaurant. I had the Pastrami sandwich with a side order of fries. Both were really good....a big portion of pastrami and lots of good fries. Service was friendly and no problem getting seated (Sunday afternoon). I did not get anything, but the pastries they had there looked very good too.

I like to share Max and Benny's with out of town guests. I've been a fan since they were in Plaza del Prado: Willow Road and Pfingsten in Northbrook in 1990. Now they are on Waukegan Road, just north of Dundee. My late father was thrilled to have the pastrami with liver pate (spelling?). I prefer the breakfast plates: vegetable... More

I really like this place because it reminds me of the famous "Canters" in Los Angeles that I used to go to with my grandfather. Not quite as good but old timey feel and deli meat smells that hang in the air are like comfort food for my soul. Upon sitting down we were presented with a basket of different... More

Great menu, good food, and good service. While not inexpensive, you do get good quality and a very diverse menu that should please all.

Have been going to Max & Benny's since they started in Glenview. It is the closest Deli we have to New Yorks's famous Deli's. They have a wide range of homemade soups with daily specials. Their sandwiches are large and come with an assortment of sides. They serve breakfast thru dinner with their extensive menu. They bake their own bagels... More

We decided on this place as they had a huge menu that filled everyone's wants. From the sandwiches to the salad to the fresh deli salad everyone was pleased with their meals. The basket of bread offered was a wonderful start. Our waitress Tara was amazing and took very good care of us. We then walked next door for some... More
