DETAILS
One of Chicago's most iconic restaurants, having opened in 1942, the South Loop's Manny's Cafeteria & Delicatessen remains legendary for its corned beef, brisket and pastrami sandwiches, accompanied with sides of crisp potato pancakes and served cafeteria-style. They do a solid breakfast business as well, with thick challah French toast, matzo brei (fried matzo), buttermilk pancakes and three-egg omelets.  Beer and wine available. Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner 6 am-8 pm Mon-Sat. Closed Sun. "But before you get in line ... decide what you want. You'll pass by plates of Jell-O and chicken salad, but this line moves too quickly for you to make decisions on the spot. Overwhelmed? We'll make it easy for you: Grab one of the inhumanely oversize corned beef or pastrami sandwiches (there really is bread under all that meat, we promise), a potato pancake on the side and a packet of Tums for dessert."
