DETAILS
You'll relish the Reuben and other deli sandwiches at Oak Park institution The Onion Roll. Cash only. No alcohol available. Serving breakfast and lunch daily. From David Hammond, OakPark.com, Nov. 21, 2011:
"For over 50 years, Onion Roll on North Avenue in Oak Park has been operating a "delicatessen and restaurant," which in later years has shown a clear emphasis on the latter. With a front counter that over the years has become less full of stuff, it's the side restaurant at Onion Roll that seems to get most of the action, and the action is comfortingly predictable. The bagels are from New York Bagel and Bialy, arguably the best source in the area, and the menu lists deli regulars like salami omelet, lox, chopped liver, pastrami and, of course, Reubens."

"Comfort food abounds at this 70s-era throwback, where wood paneling and vintage Coca-Cola signs merge with a lunch counter and formica-topped tables. Delicious, artery-clogging breakfast fare includes omelets, potato pancakes, and blintzes; lunch selections consist of burgers and sandwiches heavy on the meat. The Reuben, piled high with corned beef, sauerkraut and Swiss cheese, stands out among the options."
