We ordered a thin crust cheese, mushroom and olive pizza. First off, the pizza was round, but was cut into squares. Not a deal breaker, but oh so weird. The mushrooms were just awful, as if from a can, slimy and tasteless. And worst of all, the cheese. It tasted fake. Worst pizza in my entire life.

This was our first experience with Chicago style pizza (we were visiting from Texas) but we really liked their deep dish pizza. Be prepared to wait about 30-40 minutes if you really pile on the toppings as we did and which made the pizza about 1 inch deep (and which takes longer to cook). But definitely worth the wait. Nice... More

There is much better pizza in the area. It's a popular place, huge and the food is okay. Pizza has tons of rubbery cheese. The service and the food is slow so plan on being here a while.
