Loved it!

The deep dish pizza we had was excellent. We got a 10 inch and at first glance we thought we we were going to need more. It was the perfect size for two people. The pizza was flavorful, and we will definitely be going back.

Really good pizza. Casual and comfortable atmosphere. Friendly service. Close to the Galleria shopping Mall. Has Televisions with sports if you want to watch that special game. We have eaten here twice (on another trip about a year ago) and have enjoyed our meal each time.

We decided to give it a try based on trip advisor. We were not disappointed. We had the thin crust pizza which was really good. The garlic bread and marinara sauce was excellent that they give you. Must try if you are in the area.

We enjoyed one of the better pizzas we've eaten in the last 30 years at Tortuga's Pizza! My wife and I were visiting Birmingham and looking for a good place to eat. When we drove by I almost said "no" but my wife thought it looked good. Immediately upon entering I was very happy she did! The staff was very... More

I have heard about this place for a while and thought I'd give it a try. I ordered the deep dish upon the manager's suggestion. Don't get me wrong - it isn't bad and is very very filling. I just thought it was more of a casserole than a pizza. It was honestly a mushy mess to eat but did... More

the Chicago deep dish style of the pizza here is fabulous. Flavors are blended well with each bite and value for money was very good. It's a nice switch from the rest of the pizzas around town.

Imagine you are driving on an interstate in a distant state and you slip by an eighteen wheeler with a bumper sticker which says “Roll Tide” or “War Eagle”. Imagine how that would warm your heart, fill it with pride and nostalgia and fond memories. This is what ex-Chicagoans feel when walking into Tortuga’s. Chicago sports memorabilia and images grace...

Althought you really need to call ahead and place your order, you can not get a better Chicago style pizza. It takes 45 mins to prepare and cook but the wait is worth it. Just go with a group because you will be hard pressed to eat much more than one slice. Yummy, making myself hungry! Now, I gotta go... More

For a little shop far away from Chicago the pizza is great. They have an excellent deep dish and it's hard to find a good one outside of Chicago.
