A Great Hole-In-The-Wall Place

Never would have tried this place, except the reviews were so good. We had the Italian Beef sandwiches for lunch, and they were fantastic. The deep dish pizza being served at other tables looked great, just like they make it in Chicago. It is really more of a casserole than a pizza, which is why... read more

I have been coming to Tony's for over a decade. They are probably the most consistent eating establishment I've come across. Consistent as defined by their food, which is always delicious and their customer service which is always top notch. They are known for their deep dish Chicago pizza. It's so good that you honestly don't want to swallow it.... More

I read the extensive reviews on this little place before going there. I got my hopes up way too high. I looked at the pictures and drooled. Oh so disappointed. Ordered the Meats Pizza Deep Dish Chicago style. The crust was bland and needed some kind of seasoning added, an herb, garlic, salt? I felt like we were eating mostly... More

Deep dish from Chicago right here in So Cal and close by. It will take 45-50 min to get a deep dish pie but worth every bite. 1 slice is enough for an adult so be careful what a size you order. Yes Tony and his Family run the place. You can eat in but I suggest take out.

This family owned place has been around for almost 40 years, for a reason. The people are great and the food is incredible. My family ONLY will allow us to order the deep dish. They have an artichoke and tomato that people love. I order extra sauce to help balance out the amount of "deep dish" there really is. It... More

In order to keep everyone happy when the family gets together we order Tony's deep dish pizza. It is really good, and filling, and soon it is all gone! Allow about 1 hour for it to be done, but worth waiting for. We have been going here for over 20 years!

Tony's is famous for their deep dish pizza and rightfully so. It is incredibly good and Chicago authentic. Id stay away from their thin crust pizza, but the deep dish is the best Ive had in Orange County

I'm from NJ so it's tough to compare the pizza. It wasn't too bad. The deep dish take a while to bake so leave enough time. I'm sure for the locals it is great but I'd rather eat pizza in the east and stick to Mexican in the west!

Our family has loved Tony's since 1980. The pizza is so good, that we have friends from as far away as Denver who specifically request going there, often more than once while they are visiting! Other friends in the Bay area, beg us to bring them a couple of pies, whenever we plan a visit! Try the Tony Special and... More
