i am sure some people may be fooled but this southern boy was not. I was convinced to order the southern fried chicken after listening to the manager go on and on about the best ever southern fried chicken fresh never frozen and just finished cooking. Upon arrival the 1/2 chicken looked good, in fact there was nothing wrong with the chicken, except it was not fried . the skin was not even crisp. i would dare to say this chicen was made with shake and bake, maybe the southern style. a huge disappointment and false advertisement. next time i will ask him a question or two such as ,what type of oil is the chicken fried in? is there a cast iron skillet involved? what makes this chicken southern? hmm. i wonder.

In a world of foo-foo fusion cuisne, the art of honest, traditional home-style food is lost. Not at The Bagel. Everyone who knows their deli know its the only game in town. Best meats(sliced to order), soups, and old world deli favorites, that will never be found at the fly-by-night fad sandwich shops. Over 50 years and run by the same family, it's a Chicago institution. Have a hot pastrami and a matza ball soup. Fanstastic.

I like the food at the Bagel, but year after year the service gets worse. They may or may not bring bread and butter to the table. The ice tea tastes like soap BTW. At least it is clean. They say they deliver but do not always want to. When the do they do not want to bring it to the apartment. They want you to go to the lobby. Delivery to me means to the door. At the restaurant you have to order ""to go"" at the deli not the table. So if after a meal you want to order something extra you have to stand in line. I would rather sit at the table and enjoy the coffee while i am waiting. All in all I do not think it is worth it. There are so many places to go in the Lakeview area. I hope they get it together and maybe I will go back.

A favorite spot when I'm in the area, The Bagel serves up delicious soups and sandwiches. While I'll usually get any of their deli sandwiches and some matzo ball soup, the server recommended that I try the kreplach soup to compliment my patty melt. Outstanding! Bring an appetite as you definitely get fed - pickles and bread come free. Yum!
