Had high expectations for real Chicago deep dish pizza. The service was fine, our waiter very friendly and hospitable. The restaurant has a fun atmosphere. But it was the pizza we came for and it was just ok. The crust on the deep dish was hard with some burnt spots. We will give it another try. Beer is served in... More

This is the next best thing to being in Chicago! We go way too often, at least once a month! Delicious deep dish pizza... I'm full after one piece, stuffed after two and on the rare occasion my taste buds win and I attempt a 3rd piece... well forget about it!! For a cool change, try the thin crust, it... More

We discovered Tortugas through trip advisor. This place rocks! My family loved the pizza. The atmosphere was fun and the sitting fills up quickly. We will make it a point to come back.

Only the best deep dish Chicago Pizza anywhere. Stop by, it's worth the trip! If you've never had it. Get it! Only thing better would be eating it in Wrigley Field!

The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because the thin-crust dough was cardboard in texture. I will assume this was a mistake or otherwise an overlook by staff. So I will blame it on complacency and the fact that it was a call-in order to go. I do not care how busy you are, Tortugas: DO NOT TREAT... More

This place is owned by people that were employed at one of the premier pizza places in Chicago. If you like deep dish pizza, eat here! I would stand it up against the pizza in Chicago!

Excellent Chicago style pizza. Thin crust is also very good! While they are not cheap, like Domino's and Pizza Hut, they do not skimp on toppings and taste much better.

These guys are listed on the 100 places to eat in Alabama before you die. It's a pizza joint, which is all it claims to be. No problem, I like pizza joints. Service was pretty inattentive, prices were a bit high, but the food was decent. But just decent. If I had died without eating here I don't think my... More
