Enormous sandwiches on fresh bread, piled high with meat and interesting combinations of cheese and slaw. You'll have to share with a friend, unless you haven't eaten in a week. An extra bonus is their no-cellphone policy. No frills, friendly, fast.

Since our office move I have been to this place twice and it is EXCELLENT! The service is FANTASTIC, the line goes quick and the portion size is UNBELIEVABLE. I am a big eater and it is almost to much for me. Plus the Cell phone few zone is a refreshing benefit.

I stopped in with a friend and had a fantastic lunch! First off I have been here many times and all the sandwiches are awesome. Made from scratch in house. The matza ball soup is rocking and so is the chili. The sandwiches are as big as your head. I cant wait to go back.

I have visited Perry's deli numerous times over the years and have never been able to finish (my usual order) corned beef sandwich. The sandwiches are piled high with fresh lean corned beef and your choice of toppings. They have few side offerings, but you probably wouldn't be able to finish it anyway. If you're visiting Chicago for a few... More

Delis are becoming as popular in Chicago as steakhouses, pizza parlors, barbecue restaurants and hot dog joints. And Perry's is one of the best. Located downtown at 174 North Franklin, it enjoys a thriving businessman's crowd. Many commuters grab a hot corned beef sandwich on their way home to eat on the train. I've only become a deli fan in... More
