If you want a hot corned beef sandwich in the loop, this is about the only deli left. Their sandwiches were average, but the prices might give you indigestion. We knew gas went up, but who knew getting it could cost so much! Service was also very poor (slow). Too bad the other 4 delis that were in the area are gone. But if you have to have deli......

Today a co worker and myself went to Ada's for lunch. We waited 10 minutes to be seated, while there were a lot of people in the restaurant, there were still several empty tables. Once our presence was finally acknnowledged we waited still to be seated. After being seated my co worker and I sat and chatted and all of a sudden noticed that 15 min had passed by with out a server coming by for drink orders or anything. We kindly wasted another 10 minutes of our lunch hour and still nothing. Upon deciding to leave the Manager didn't even apologize for our experience, offer any discounts on a return visit or nothing. Just said we are busy. While I have sent groups to this restaurant before I most certainly will not be doing this again. Nor will I return to this extablishment. Please do not think that I am bitter after one visit. My last visit to Ada's was unpleasent and I just wantted to give it another try.

All I can say is WOW. I went to Ada's for dinner with a friend from Chicago and I left amazed. We had full service at the bar area, and even though it's called a Deli, you can get a variety of foods from ribs, to burgers, to grilled cheese. And the bartender was great, never had a dry glass.

Ada's Famous Deli is simply not the same as Juinor's Deli in NY, but they have really good homemade bagels. Juinors is better at sandwiches but I love Chicago and crave Ada's bagels. To those who complain about the price - quit being cheap, my goodness nothing is cheap in that area, and if you're in that area of Chicago - you have money so don't complain. The matzo ball soup is out of this world. 2 matzo balls instead of Juinors which gives you only one!

By no means a "deli". More of a lunch counter on the ground floor of a hotel. Our sandwiches were lame and expensive.They talk a good talk and the layout reminds one of the traditional delis, but that's where it ends. Everyone in the group was disappointed. Would never recommend this place to anyone.

Being from NYC, this deli limped. My sandwich was stuffed with turkey which was nice, but had only a strip or so of bacon and a pink tomato slice. Still, hardly worth the $8.99 I paid for it with only a paltry side of coleslaw. My partner's pastrami on rye was razor thin. He also asked for it to be grilled and it came back microwaved. I wanted to be reminded of Junior's in Brooklyn, but that would be a slam on the landmark establishment back East. The soup was good. So was the service. But $35 for lunch for two was a bit steep. Even in Manhattan you can find better deli for less. Honestly, the Corner Bakery or Cosi (god help me) would've been more satisfying and a better value.

This is well worth a lunch stop. The soup is a meal. And the sandwiches are thick and delicious.
