Need a Good Deli

HappyFatGuy | May 10, 200503:29 PM

I am in desperate need of finding a good deli. I have tried searching the previous posts and have seen descriptions of many good places (many of which I have tried at you suggestion), but none that are convenient AND carry what I need.

Here are my conditions:

1. Must be within five minutes of an exit off of I-55 (anywhere between Chicago and Joliet), or be in the general Joliet area.

2. MUST have a good chopped liver. This is the only reason my wife will get food from a deli. She grew up in West Rogers park and there are two or three places she drags me to whenever we are in the area.

3. I prefer a place that is takeout focused (ie less of a restaurant and more of a meat and deli counter place).

Also, please do not suggest Manny's. It's not that I don't like the place, but I always have trouble when I go there just trying to get some meat and chopped liver to go...
