New Years Day seemed a little difficult to find an open restaurant, so we called Kaufman's Bagel & Delicatessen and they were open. You take a number when you arrive and head to the deli counter to place your order from the menu board that takes up the entire wall behind the order counter. We ordered two different sandwiches. The first was a corned beef sandwich, aka Moishe's Pupik, which came on corn rye with spicy mustard. The second was the the Skokie Firehouse Special which is smoked Turkey on chale with spicy mayo, hot giardiniera, lettuce, tomato, red onions and hot sauce. I must admit that I thought that the firehouse special would have been a bit hotter, but it was just perfect - just the right amount of extra heat. The sandwiches were ample portions. The staff is friendly and the prices are what you would expect at a good deli. Kaufman's offers a lot more than just deli sandwiches, including soups, salads and baked goods.

Took my niece for lunch and we shared a grilled peach salad, pumpkin ravioli, whitefish and a dessert and of course a bottle of wine. Wines were well priced. Salad was described as grilled peaches ... but actually there was maybe half a sliced peach on a lot of arugula with few goat cheese crumbles - very tasty but overpriced. Mains are served with soup or salad. Generous portion of pumpkin ravioli [ maybe 9 ] and sauce was tasty but a bit too sweet to our taste. Whitefish well prepared and we were tempted to try the cesar salad with it but decided we'd had enough salad. We thought bread was dry altho it was nice soaked in the ravioli sauce. Cloth tablecloths, very friendly service. Nice touch for an upscale lunch

I never mind an Old School Italian eatery as after I moved from Chicago I have rarely got to experience this kind of nostalgic type of dining. I was ready for some carb overload so I ordered the campanelle pasta, but instead of shrimp, I asked for chicken. Why? Living in SC, where we get these crustaceans fresh from local waters minutes after being harvested, I didn’t dare order them here. The pasta came with fresh spinach in a tomato chive cream sauce.
The dish certainly had potential but in the end it was just too heavy. Italians never drown their pasta in sauce, but know how to expertly dress the noodles to reach the right balance. This dish suffered from too much liquid and as a result became a mish mash rather than a coherent symphony of ingredients. The pasta became gummy and eventually completely unappetizing. Would we return? Doubtful.

Nice, supper club atmosphere and packed on a Sunday evening. Food was very good. Only one side comes with your dinner, not two like most places so it jacks up your bill. Waitress was trying to get us to put their app on our phone. Please leave us to just enjoy our dinner. When we didn't want to "get the app", she seemed annoyed.

Co-workers sang the praises of their food for so long, and I'd never been. Finally, an opportunity presented itself. The staff was very friendly, but I was surprised when the first thing they said was, “Do you have a preorder?” I didn’t even know that was possible, since this was my first visit. After that awkward start, I had an informative discussion with a waitress who helped me choose an individual pan with sausage and a soft drink. I occupied myself with my electronic gadgets for 1/2 hour, after which my pizza finally arrived. I expected the burnt cheese around the edge, which retained the pool of sauce like a lake around small round sausage balls. The crunchy cheese collar and the sausage, as advertised with fennel, were very tasty. The dough wasn’t cornmeal, but it had good texture to support the ingredients above. Lots of cheese, which clung to each cut-off bite. Near the end of the pie, my tastebuds objected to the sharpening burnt cheese. Maybe it was too much of a good thing. I was certainly satisfied with the quantity and quality. My waitress had disappeared, and when I asked, was told she’d been reassigned in back. She must not have handed me off formally, because the waitress who finally got me my bill ten minutes later had been ignoring my table. A poor ending to what could have been a home run.

This is a favorite go-to restaurant for us to meet a friend who lives far away. This restaurant is between us and never disappoints. The food is consistently outstanding. I always get the salmon, and my friends often get chicken or pasta. All is great, and there is often enough to bring home leftovers. The bottomless salad is great - the salad dressing (a bit sweet and thick) is the best!

Busy place, large menu, great variety of breakfast options.
Our visit was on Sunday morning about 9:30 am and we had about a 20 minute wait which was reasonable considering how busy it was.
We ordered the Apple pancake to share for the table.
Coffee was very good. I had the meat lovers omelette, my wife had the vegetable omelette with swiss. My wife loved her vegetable omelette. My meat lovers omelette with swiss was good.
The hash browns were very good, we had them topped with cheese.
As many other reviews said, the Apple Pancake was terrific, definately happy we ordered it.
Service was very considering how busy it was.
All in all, Walker Brothers was a hit for us.

Our group of 5 enjoyed our meal at Pita Inn! The food was fresh and the management addressed dietary concerns (allergies). The servings were large and had plenty of condiments. We also enjoyed desserts. Plenty of options for vegetarians!

This Greek Restaurant is authentic - the real deal. There are no bad dishes to be had, and all of the portions are quite big. Don’t go without reservations. There is valet parking.

Super fresh. Great fries, awesome hotdogs with all the fixings. Great burgers. Tiny little place that's a huge hit with local businesses. Great place to take the kids for lunch on a Saturday. Fresh, hot, quick fast food for when the bug hits you!
