This was our first trip to Chicago so we wanted the full experience. A friend suggested Giordano's and it didn't disappoint. Great pizza and great service. Our kids pizza took about 20 minutes to come out which is an eternity with little children, but we were told about the wait upon ordering which was very nice of the waitress. Overall... More

Late Thursday night and it was still busy but they got us in and comfortable. A must try is the chopped salad... I know pizza is the star, but this salad will not disappoint! Pizza is worth the wait. So delicious!

It was very busy for a Tuesday night. Waited 30 min for a table, but we were able to order our pizza right away. Stuffed cheese deep dish pizza....delicious!

Service was fast, efficient. Price for lunch specials is very reasonable. Cheese pizza was overdone crust, did not taste fresh, and overall not good.

This was good pizza. It was not exactly my taste, but that is like BBQ where individual taste makes so much matter. The quality was good. The service was solid and friendly.

We are from the suburbs of Detroit, so we are very spoiled with good Pizza with Buddy's, Shields, Cloverleaf, etc. So when I say this Pizza is crazy good, I'm not kidding. It's the type of pizza that you feel like it's Thanksgiving, your stomach says no, but your mouth wants more. Don't worry, you will walk it off :-)

Ate here for the first time and came away with the quality and taste of the pizza. Of course Chicago has 100s of pizza places all claiming to be the best but this one did not disappoint. Yes it took as advertised close to 45 minutes for our dinner pizza but it was worth the wait. Great sauce, flaky crust... More

First things first, make sure you are hungry when you get there - secondly, don't expect the food for at least an hour. It was late on a Friday night but we were able to go right into a table. We waited a good 10 mins before we were greeted by a server, but its all good as they were... More

We had a 40-min wait on a Friday night, so we pre-ordered while we waited. After being seated we waited another hour for our pizza (with a restless toddler). A glass of wine was ordered & didn't make it to the table for at least 25 mins. After the pizza finally arrived, 1 person was left without any eating utensils.... More

Do yourself a favor and hit up a Giordano's if you find yourself in Chicago. You won't be disappointed. There is some rivalry across the city as to who puts together the best deep dish, but I would definitely put Giordano's at the top (after sampling my way through the competition). Key points - Don't go in if you're in... More
