Authentic Chicago Deep Dish

Went here on the recommendation of a relative. We were advised of the long waits but must have hit a slow time on a Sun afternoon as we were seated immediately. My wife and I split a small deep dish and our daughter had the Lasagne. It was a bit of a wait for the pizza but they warn you... read more

This place is excellent. My family and I haven't been in almost three years, but we went last night. The food it great, and so is the staff. It can be a little busy, but it's worth the wait. Considering it is so busy, I think the staff handles the customers well - anything you need, they're on top of... More

My family and I were at this restaurant for a family celebration. We have been before and knew the food was good. The service is terrible. The waitress has been there for awhile because we have had her before, and nothing has changed. One family member had never been to Chicago Pizza before and was taken back by how rude... More

Small restaurant, so make a reservation if eating in. They are always busy, and expect a least an hour wait for take-out orders, but well worth the wait, when you taste their pizza, especially stuffed. Always a favourite in my house, though a little pricier than most, it is worth the price!

As other reviewers have mentioned, this is a small pizza joint. When we arrived Sunday evening at supper time, the waiting area was full and a few were standing on the front steps. There were also a few standing near the cash waiting for their take out orders. The dining room was packed. Our wait to get a table was... More

I've eaten at this restaurant for years. The value is unbeatable but as far as the food goes, I think they operate on the "everything tastes good when you smother it with cheese" principle, which is fine by me... I do agree with previous reviews: They are simply not set up to accommodate their demand. The wait times are outrageous,... More

Chicago Pizza has been in Hamilton for as long as I can remember. Its small eat in area is perfect so you don't get lost. Their stuffed pizza is truly a meal in 1 slice. The staff is friendly and in what I remember as a youngster watching the guys spin the pizza dough from the outside of the restaurant... More
