This cafeteria-style delicatessen is an institution and a must-stop at lunch because the corned beef sandwich is darn good.

Manny's Coffee Shop & Deli Restaurant Review

: Manny's is the quintessential deli: buzzing, big and loaded with people of all sorts. (It's also a hometown fave of President Obama.) Grab a plastic tray, shaking off the water from the dishwasher, and head down the food-service line. From the steam table to soft drinks, it's loaded with enough to seduce. The chicken soup with matzoh ball or kreplach is one of the best in town. Corned beef, chopped liver, tongue, brisket and pastrami barely make a dent in the sandwich selection. Daily specials will take you to deli nirvana. Oxtail stew, gefilte fish, beef stew, liver and onions, meatloaf --- the selection goes on and on. For dinner, look for even heartier meals like beef stew and turkey meatloaf. Also located at Midway Airport’s Concourse A, 773-948-6300.
