Finally decided to try this place. Flavorless. Should have gone to The Bagel instead.

Not sure how their sandwiches are, but this thread is pretty tasteless

certainly not as good as it is portrayed

Might as well continue down the expressway and hit Kaufman's on Dempster

Levine sounds like he's choking every time he does a live read for them. It would help if the live reads were only 15 seconds and not two full minutes.

Once Upon a Bagel used to be pretty good back in the day. Can't vouch for it now.

Considering 80% of their customers are either toddlers or seniors you probably shouldn't expect a ton of bold flavors in their food.

It's a pretty good deli, definitely better than Max's and a few others in the area.

Once Upon a Grill/Deli is good.

Kaufman's is meh at best.

Kaufman's hasn't been the same since the old owner sold it a decade (?) ago.

My usual lunch spot (Anton's) is closed for a couple weeks this time of year so went to Max and Benny's today because someone told me they have good turkey chili. Well, turns out they actually have really shitty turkey chili. I wouldn't even call it chili, more like a bowl of watery vegetable soup loaded with beans.
