Tip: Order at the counter, then sit down to have drinks or appetizers. Thick pizza takes time to cook. Tall, hearty & filling. Not greasy. Meat eaters loved my veggie pizza. Salad was nicely blended. Can't wait to return.

We were told about this original location on the Double Decker Trolly bus but was advised in advance it could be a 1-3 hour wait. Since we weren't super hungry at the time we decided to give it a try and it was totally worth the wait!! We went around 2:30 on a Thursday and we only had to wait... More

If you are looking for a quick meal, this is not the place. But if you go in with the mindset that it will take a while for your pizza, it is worth waiting every second. You can place your pizza order as soon as you arrive (even if you have to wait for a table) so this helps speed... More

I was reading Serious Eats Chicago to research where to find the best pan pizza in the city and this was rated as the place to get it in the downtown core. If you don't mind the fact that it's a total tourist trap and there is usually a bit of a wait, I highly recommend this place. The staff... More

We went around 10:30pm. Their system was down and it took the waiter hours to get us our pizza and everything. The pizza is just so-so, not quite delicious as we expected. Anyway, just an average pizzeria.

Great deep dish pizza. If you go during dinner, be sure to order your pizza when you put your name in. Waits can be over an hour for a table. Still, definitely worth the wait (unless you are trying to diet).

Be prepared to be as full as you can remember. My family of five could not finish a large pizza. We toot two and a half slices of this wonderful pie back to our hotel. Hint: Go early. It gets very, very busy after 5:00 p.m. It takes one hour to make and bake one of their famous deep dish... More

This was the best deep dish pizza we had. Our family shared a medium Cheese and Pepperoni deep dish pizza and a Ceasar salad and it was excellent. We liked this pizza much better then Lou Malnati's deep dish pizza.

I really would like to give a good review for this pizza but our experience was just too frustrating. We knew that there would be a long wait as we were told on arrival that it would be about 1 hour to wait. So we chose to wait and take advantage of the pre-order option for our pizza. During our...
