Besides locals cams it is not the traditional Chicagoan deep dish pizza, this delicious, huge, cheesy meal is worth the 45 minutes wait that it takes to get ready. But please be careful: if you fall into the temptation of ordering a starter + the smallest pizza for two, you and your mate probably won't be able to do anything... More

This was my first Chicago deep dish pizza, and it was great. I do recommend you get there before 5:30pm or there will be a long wait. Also, plan on waiting at least 45 minutes for your deep dish pizza. Service is very good. They strive to use local ingredients. There's also gluten free pizza that's good.

Their pizza is tasteless and since when is there no cheese under the tomato sauce? On our pizza, about 15% of the whole pizza had cheese and it was ON TOP of the tomato sauce - ! In comparison, the pizzas from the frozen case in the grocery stores are better than Giordano's. Will never, never return.

The limitless choices for toppings, style, and overall variety gives one the opportunity to eat healthy and conscious guilt free while getting plenty to eat. The staff is trained to offer quality and friendly service, but does not go over the top with it. An order mistake that could happen anywhere and may even have been our fault was immediately... More

Chicago’s Best Deep Dish How the Legendary Deep Dish Started In early 1974, two brothers by the names of Efren and Joseph Giordano immigrated to Chicago and started what was going to be one of the most recognizable pizzerias in the country. It all started from great great grandma’s old “Italian Easter Pie” or what was soon to be called... More

Order Lunch Special Pizza Salad and Drink. This was a deep dish but the crust was hard meat and cheese at the bottom and sauce on top. We did not care for it. The hot wings and the salad were great. The place was nice and big. Very popular and busy.

The Deep Dish pizza at Giordano's is is a deep well of cheese sauce and any meat you'd want. It is, simply a heart attack on a plate. One medium pizza could feed 4 adults, is enough food for three more meals. I rarely go, and for a Chicago original it is not the best pizza I've ever tasted. Paladino's... More

Giordano's pizza was the worst pizza we have ever eaten. The pizza had no flavor, tasted processed and the crust was like cardboard. The quality is horrible and the food is definitely not worth the 1 hour wait!

Best Deep dish pizza in town. Sweet, tangy, with generous toppings. It is true that sometime you have to wait for hours, but the wait definitely worth it! One Medium Pizza can feed 4 hungry men/women (or more).

Giordano's have spoiled pizza for me now - I don't think I will ever have one as good as the deep-dished stuffed pepperoni personal pizza I had for lunch. For $11 with tax you get a main, a side and a drink. The service was friendly and fast too.
