About us

Hundreds of thousands of satisfied customers have found Max and Benny’s to be the ultimate deli-restaurant experience in the Chicago area! Whether it’s our 280 seat full-service restaurant, our scrumptious deli counter or our amazing bakery, Max and Benny’s has something delicious for everyone in your family. We are an ideal venue for any social or business function, with an 80 seat private Event Room. Our renowned catering department can bring any of our tasty specialties to your door. Catering staff can assist you in to meeting all your life-cycle and corporate catering needs. Owned by the Schlan family for nearly thirty years, we are named after Rhea and Lester’s sons, Max and Ben, whose silhouetted profiles are found on our logo. Lester fondly recalls the wonderful aromas emanating from his Bubbie Gussie’s kitchen when she made kugel, gefilte fish, rugelach and other Jewish delicacies. This family tradition of great cooking has been passed down to another generation of Schlans and is evidenced every day in the marvelous food that we prepare and serve to our customers.

Delicious food, exceptional service and very allergy aware! Our party of 5 was seated quickly upon arrival, and although it was a busy Saturday morning, we never felt pressured to rush our meal. We appreciated that since we all traveled quite a distance to meet with friends we rarely see. We'll be back.

One of the best deli/diners in the area. Staff is great, and the food is even better. It has a great family atmosphere, and all are welcome. It's great at any time of the day.
