Incredible Jewish deli taking cues from the classics in New York and Newark with expansive traditional menu of deli favorites made with care and high quality. Matzoh ball soup, pastrami sandwiches, egg creams - all the usual suspects. No pickled tomatoes but you can’t have everything! Portions are huge and service is expert and quick. The owner helps seat hungry waiting folks quicky with personality and good humor. Candy everywhere especially for the kids. A full bar for the older kids at heart. Wonderful place anyone would feel welcome in. Please come hungry!

Love the atmosphere in this place. The moment I walked in, I felt like I was in a deli type restaurant in New York. It took me back in time! It was busy, but I didn't mind as I looked at the candy shop and reminisced about the old days going to the corner store with all the classic sweets on display. We got seats at the bar and loved it! I had the Mexican scramble, and it was not as tasty as I had hoped, but I was so much more focused on the experience that I still enjoyed it. Even got a shake to go!

From UK, I'm staying in Chicago this week and this was my favourite place to eat lunch by a large margin. Great selection of delicious food, home made root beer, good service and atmosphere. Probably the best bloody Mary I've had. Classic American diner, but way better than others I've been to.

First of all, I’m super lame and a straight up cornball so the fact that I enjoyed this themed restaurant is not surprising. Old Chicago. There is not a storage of selfie backdrops. Second, not sure how I missed this gem which apparently has been around for 17 years! But when you know better you do better so … now I know Third, on top of all that, the food is good. The service, even better. I think the staff enjoy the venue as much as the patrons! This is my new must-take-visitors for breakfast spot. Enjoy!

The food was so good the first day we tried it, we came back the next day! It is so busy but it is well worth the wait. And all week I have been wanting to go back. Superb. It’s crowded at the bar but what do you expect when the food is so dang good!

Very cool atmosphere with so many good menu options. The service was friendly and quick and the food was really good. We got the root beer which is made on-site and was delicious and also bottomless if you want refills. We also got the avocado bagel, challah French toast, and a side of sausage. All were great. Highly recommend.

This diner is such a cool place to eat. The staff is the hardest working group I've witnessed in a long time. We sat at the bar and were treated like honored guests by Felipe. I suspect he treats all his customers that way. He was warm and friendly and never missed a beat providing for all of us seated at the bar even while mixing drinks for the restaurant seated guests. 10/10 highly recommend and we will definitely visit again.

Visiting from Greensboro NC. Loved the diner I had to buy a souvenir mug! So many menu options. Kids were happy they got milkshakes with their breakfast! Staff was friendly. Loved the candy shop area. Will definitely come back next time in Chicago!

Eleven City Diner is a superb breakfast / brunch spot in the Chicago area! It was recommended by staff at the hotel I was staying at in Chicago, and did not disappoint. Last Thursday, I rushed to come here for brunch, and took an Uber here because I am just visiting the Chicago area. I walked in and ordered table for one, and got bar seating immediately. I immediately enjoyed the casual, laid-back atmosphere around me and snapped some photos to capture the moment. I asked the waiter for popular items, and 11 City French Toast (FT) was mentioned. Rita's Plate appealed to me because it had eggs, meat, and potatoes, but also came with the FT. Waiter said FT is better with 11 City toppings -- strawberries and bananas that is. I said why not, let's go for it. While we were waiting, I saw a keg of root beer (RB) and saw that 11 City is known for its authentic, bottomless RB. I said why not, and called the waiter over and ordered that for my drink. The wait time was not egregious, but it was somewhat long. I was presented with the Rita's Plate at long last, which came with what looked like ham, scrambled eggs with fresh avocado, and potato wedges. On the second plate there was powdered FT, and since this was 11 city style, came with strawberries and bananas. All the food was pretty spot on. I enjoyed ham, egg, and potatoes plate but it was not a home run. Still flavorful and enjoyable. The FT was amazing, probably one of best FT I've tried at a brunch spot before. Flavorful and with the strawberries and bananas it added lot of natural sugar to it. If getting toppings, I would advise against using too much of the maple syrup; in this case it is already sweet enough with the powder and fruit, and maybe conservative quantities of syrup is called for. As well, if you order anything else sugary like root beer as a drink, you most certainly don't want to get an overload of sugar for breakfast, so I would advise again limited quantities of maple syrup or skipping it altogether. I will say, there was a few mishaps and delays in my order, such as the bartender forgetting I had ordered RB so I had to remind him, and it only arrived much after my main dish. But it's not a deal breaker, and I understand that folks can be busy here. As for the RB, the drink was a bit sugary but I missed root beer as I haven’t had it for the longest time, it was good to try authentic fresh RB once again and best is they offer free refills, so I got one and finished half of the other (as I said, bit too sugary for me!) All in all, this is a spot-on breakfast or brunch spot if one is visiting Chicago, and cannot go wrong with 11 City Diner. I will recommend, and my suggestion will be to ask for popular items and/or toppings, and then adjust or add substitutes -- as I have for the FT -- accordingly, based on best judgement or preference. I enjoyed this spot and will likely be back once I find myself in the Chicago area again. Definitely check it out!

Amazing food and service from the ownership and the staff!!! We had a late comer arrive at our table when we had no additional room to be seated at our table, and they were nice enough to move us to a bigger booth with no problem. The pancakes are tremendously big and good. I got the RITO's Plate with pancakes which was very good. The portion sizes for their food are the biggest that I have seen for a breakfast diner. I reccomend parking next door to the restaurant which cost 7.00 for 2 hours of parking and cost 11.00 for 6 hours of parking; however keep your receipt in the window of your car. I definitely will be coming back to try additional items on the menu.
