One of our founders, Faris Sweiss, a father, brother, son, and US Veteran, was taken away from us in a tragic accident on August 30th, 2020. He had just turned 32 years young. He not only left behind cherished memories, and was beloved by so many, his legacy lives on through his two young sons. He had charisma that would light up a room. He was always known to have enough room in his heart for anyone who needed love. He was a giving being, who would give you the shirt off his back, and never hold it over your head, and that was one of his strongest characteristics. We have set up a GoFundMe in his memory, to raise funds to guarantee a strong future for the two angels he left behind, Christian & Roman. Click here to donate.

About Us

So... what's our story?

It Started, Quite Simply, Like This...

We grew up with a deep-rooted love for food. We felt that everyone should experience full-flavored meals, without all the added preservatives, and the manufactured "tastes" you get in today's restaurant world, so we decided it was time to combine freshness and the swiftness of fast food into what we like to call a "not your average deli" experience. Not quite fast food, and not quite dine-in, rather, a little of both.

So, when you're looking for that home-made taste without all that jazz? We are just the place. With mouthwatering sandwiches, hearty salads, fresh fries and chips, and our fresh-baked bread! While you're in, you could also pick up some cold (or hot) cuts. We proudly serve the high-quality Boar's Head brand meats and cheese, which we use on our sandwich selection as well. Want to make your own tasty sandwich later? Bring some cold cuts and cheese home with our fresh baked French bread.

Ellie's Deli has the only Tomasi Churrasqueira rotisserie in the area imported from Brazil, which we use to cook the famous mouth-watering steak sandwich you hear so much about. In fact, the steak sandwich we're so famous for can only be experienced in Naperville at Ellie's Deli.

We also cater! With our prices, offerings, quality, and quantity, we're sure our catering menu is structured for all your needs. We cater for any occasion, so just tell us what you want, and we will be happy to make your experience with us unforgettable.

We want to become your go-to spot for a fun environment and delicious food. You know, that place in the neighborhood where locals gather to kick back and take a night off from cooking? That's us. We truly believe we have created something with this restaurant that you can't get anywhere else. Our staff provides friendly and personalized service. Want to know what our menu favorites are? Just ask! Special dietary needs? Just ask. We offer Keto-friendly, vegetarian-friendly, and Vegan-friendly menu options. We are here to make sure that you have an excellent experience every time you visit.
