Its a must do when in Chicago!!!

You can't have the full Chicago experience without the deep dish pizza and Giordano's is the best! Plan on waiting 50 minutes for you pizza to cook, but other than the wait it was outstanding.

I frequently visit Chicago and....I always stop here! The pizza is amazing. Best deep dish on the planet I would say! You have to wait a bit (45-55 minutes) because of the way they cook the pizza. It's worth the wait. The deep dish has the filling INSIDE it!

Visited on a Friday afternoon for lunch. Got a lunch special for 10$ with a mini stuffed pizza & a side. Service was average, pizza was tasty. Would return.

This was my first experience with Chicago deep dish pizza and it was incredible. The wait is long and it's pricier than what you find around where I live but the sauce is unforgettable!

For under $25 we enjoyed 2 personal pizzas, 2 side salads and 2 drinks. You can't beat that for quality stuffed deep dish in Chicago. Although personally sized we both were full and each took home a slice.The service was a little erratic but for a quick quality lunch on a dime, we were happy. It was very close to... More

We were on our "reverse spring break" (from Florida, visiting Chicago in March) and had a lot of time to kill until our unit was available at the Wyndham Grand timeshare. So, we thought, this is a perfect opportunity to try what was represented as the best pizza in Chicago. While we can't speak to it being "the best," our... More

This is the 4th time visiting this Giordano's location. The pizza is the best and I make sure this is my first stop when I get into Chicagoland. I typically get a cheese deep dish and sometimes sausage as well. Sit down in the bar at the high tops. The bartender is great and has been there ever since I... More

Giordano's Chicago, Illinois Ordered: Large Deep Dish Pizza Your life isn't complete until you've tried this deep dish pizza. It's like no other pizza I've ever had in my life. The flavor filled slice is off the charts. The sauce is so good and it has just the right amount of everything. It does take a little more time to... More

We went on Valentine's Day to eat here. There was a wait for the table, but we ordered while waiting. Once we got seated, we waited over an hour for our food. We also waited a long time when we ordered a drink. They need better time management. Especially if they offer you to order while waiting.
