Best Lox Bagels and Cream Cheese sandwich in the suburbs. I missed the substantial LBCCs served in the Chicago and was pleasantly surprised at Chicago Bagel & Bialy Deli in Wheeling. Just like back home! Very friendly staff.

Very good deli. Freshly baked bagels and bialys and pastries. Homemade soup is good, especially split pea. Can dine in or take out. Good lox platter. Nice trays made to order and cookies for special occasions.

The cooks/waitresses are incredibly friendly and seem to know most regulars by name. Accommodating as possible to special dietary requests. Everything prepared fresh daily.

This was a very friendly, hometown feel restaurant. The food selection for breakfast was great! The ladies at the counter were super friendly and smiley. I had a cinnamon bagel with cream cheese and my husband had the egg and bacon sandwich with hash browns....More

Usually there 3-4times per week for lunch and once on weekends. Corn Beef is the best I've ever had. Try the brisket but get there early as it will be gone.
