Fodor's Review

For all its great food, Chicago is not a big deli town, which endears Eleven City Diner, an old-school deli and family restaurant in the South Loop, to the locals. You can get breakfast all day (latkes and lox are popular, as is the "hoppel poppel": scrambled eggs with salami, potatoes, onions, and peppers) but deli staples like matzo-ball soup and pastrami and corned-beef sandwiches shouldn't be missed. There are also classic diner options including burgers, and soda-fountain

floats and malts from the staff soda jerk. Breaking from the deli tradition, Eleven City also sells beer, wine, and cocktails. In keeping with its theme, there's an old-fashioned candy counter on your way out.

Eleven City Diner Review

Very disappointed at the inconsistency of this restaurant and their attitude in correcting a terrible experience. Service is everything and this restaurant is lacking quality service, half of the food we ordered never came to the table and the only care about flipping the tables to the next party. When I spoke to the management he was very cocky and couldn't care if I was satisfied. I will have better judgement next time and will not go

back.
