Come hungry!

Heard about this place so just had to try it. Small little place with a line-up (jammed in at the front door).....45 minute wait for table or 1 hour for pick-up (what kind of place is this???). Thought about leaving....so glad we didn't. As someone else has mentioned the hostess suggested we... read more

Generous portions, but if you're not going for the deep dish pizzas, you can probably make it (better) at home. Prepare to wait, but you're better off ordering pick up.

Arrived 40 mins after opening on a Saturday but we were in town. So it's full right up to the front door lineup, 45 min wait? Should we go ? We wait it out? People keep coming nowhere to stand never mind sit, some are just pickups. There is a new twist to speed things up if your ordering pizza,... More

After a move of residence, that lasted WAY longer than it should, we decided that since we didn't have our picky 9 year old with us, we would try somewhere new. 15 years ago I was in Chicago and had a deep dish pie. It was the highlight of my trip. I tried on numerous occasions to recreate this heavenly... More

You must understand Chicago pizza if your coming here for Pizza. It's heavy, it's Cheesy and so filling. But if pizza is what we want, this is the place to go. 2 people cannot finish a small pizza. If you choose a bunch of meat inside your pie, the grease will probably do a number on your belly! It is... More

There was a small line up of people waiting to get in.We ordered the red and white chicken and a roast beef pizza. I ordered the large pizza (huge! !!)All I can say is that everything was excellent. Chicken... More
