    Bobak's on Archer Ave. near Midway Airport is a must stop. It's a huge Polish (Chicago has 300,000 Polish language speakers) deli/buffet with great food and rock-bottom prices.

    You don't say which Best Western that you are staying at but if it is the one off of Ohio then the trip the Bobak's would be quite a haul.

    My suggestion for a great deli that is closer to were you are staying is Manny's Coffee Shop and Deli. Manny's has been around decades and is a must stop if you enjoy corn beef sandwiches, potato pancakes and chicken soup.

    They are located at 1141 S. Jefferson St. The hours of operation are Monday - Saturday 5:00 am - 4:00 pm and they are closed on Sunday.

    Since 1997, I've been receiving an annual shipment of smoked Polish sausages from Chicago's Lasak Delicatessan. A friend buys the sausages when she travels to Chicago for family visits. Lasak's is just a few blocks from her childhood home and the family has patronized it forever. My annual order is up to 20 lbs. When the sausages arrive, I tightly wrap them in Saran wrap, place them in airtight plastic bags and freeze.

    The deli address is:

    Lasak Delicatessan
    5754 1/2 S Pulaski Rd
    Chicago, IL 60629
    (773) 735-1959

    My friend used to bring smoked garlic sausages, but the Polish deli that made them is closed. I liked the garlic sausages the best; they were absolutely sensational. I'm hopeful my Polish friend will eventually find a new source for smoked garlic sausages.
