You have to look for the cafe, found in a strip mall down from a major shopping center. The pizza takes a bit to get once ordered, but so worth the wait. Very good, just like the once in the Windy City. Make the trip!

The food was great. My husband is from Chicago and he has been missing the pizza. He stumbled across this place online and we decided we had to try it. We pre-ordered due to the 45min estimate given for the Chicago style pizza. When we arrived, we were greeted by very friendly people. We only waited 15-20 before our pizza... More

The only true Chicago style pizza in the south. Great food and service. My family and I love this place. The Wrigleyville is awesome.

New to town and looking for a good pizza place, we decided to try Tortugas as it is near our home. It was a good decision. We went early one evening and beat the crowd which was there by the time we left. That is usually a good sign when a place is crowded. Anyway, we tried the thin crust... More

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!
