Fodor's Expert Review Manny's Cafeteria and Delicatessen

$ South Loop Deli

Kibitzing counter cooks provide commentary as they sling chow—thick corned-beef and pastrami sandwiches, soul-nurturing matzo-ball soup, and piping-hot potato pancakes—at this classic Near South Side cafeteria. Though they occasionally bark at dawdlers, it's all in good fun—though looking for seating in two teeming, fluorescent-lighted rooms is not, so you're best off coming at off hours. Don't try to pay the hash-slingers; settle up as you leave.
