my favorite deep dish and a great location off of Wacker

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... read 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.

Wow. Just wow. Ordering Chicago's signature deep pan pizza wasn't a popular choice with the Mrs. However after one bite that opinion quickly changed. Fresh ingredients combined with the sweet flavourful tomato sauce and the crispy crust make this the best deep dish pizza joint in town.

Great pizza, made from scratch, so not a fast food place. Have time to chat and enjoy both people and food. Good service, no sense of being hurried. Reasonable prices.

A group from work wanted to find a nice place to dine and unwind after a long day of work. This place was recommended by the locals. Great food, great drinks and a great atmosphere to enjoy everyone's company. Wait staff did a great job tonight and I finally got to experience Chicago's deep dish pizza... GREAT!

Stopped at Giordanos for an early lunch and glad we did as it filled up really quickly. Since we ordered the deep dish it took awhile but it was worth it. The atmosphere and the service was ok but the food was good.

Enjoyed a nice lunch with friends. The place was busy but we were seated quickly. We shared a large thin crust vegetarian pizza. It was great and filling. Good service and reasonable price.

The usual long wait wasn't bad at all so we decided to wait for a table as opposed to doing takeout - it does take a long time for the pizza to bake but you can watch the process from the picture window in the dining room. I thought the food was tasty, we got a veggie pizza and it... More
