I have visited this Giordano's a few times. This past weekend has changed my mind about this particular location forever. We arrived in the evening already expecting to wait a long time. The wait time was 40 minutes. That is common for Chicago restaurants. We decided to wait because we love deep dish here in Chicago. However the host told... More

We came to this restaurant by recommendation and because we wanted to try the famous Chicago style deep dish pizza. It takes 45 minutes to cook, so plan accordingly. We ordered the cheese, and found it to be extremely tasty. The tomatoes and spices tasted fresh as opposed to canned, and the crust was a buttery flavor that was flaky... More

We went to this restaurant in a drizzling rain and were a bit daunted by the hour wait and no space to wait in. If you know what you want to order do so as soon as you arrive and put your name on the wait list. They will be cooking your pizza -- which takes an hour -- while... More

I was in Chicago for work and met up with a girlfriend from college here. She had asked me if I've ever had deep dish, and decided to take me here when I said i didn't. I didn't know what to expect as the place looks like your typical pizza place, but it was definitely packed. They said it'd take... More

Many people had recommended the deep dish pizza from Giordano's. We had been told it was the number 1 famous stuffed pizza in Chicago. We figured we would head right to Giordano's (near Millennium Park) to try and beat the lunch crowd. We made it just in time. It wasn't long before the entrance door to Giordano's was crowded with...

PRUDENTIAL PLAZA | MILLENIUM PARK, 135 E. LAKE ST Just one block from Millenium Park. Service was prompt and friendly. Prepare for a short wait during prime tourist season but this is a great location, not directly visible from Millennium Park. Excellent local draft beers, crisp salads, and tasty Toasted Ravoli as an appetizer. The deep dish pizza will take... More

Great pizza and get there early because it is always packed. We ate a both Gino's and Giordano's, and liked the pizza here better. It is not as saucy as Gino's. Once again, get there early!

Wow, this pizza is good. I'm from Detroit, so I'm familiar with thick pizzas a we have a Chicago style slice at Pizzapapalis downtown, which is a nice treat once in awhile. But this stuff at Giordano's is delicious. The crust is somewhat sweet, which complements the saltiness of the cheese and sauce perfectly. My one complaint was that the... More

We ordered our medium double pepperoni deep dish at 530p, being told it would take 45 minutes, wasn't ready until about 1 hour 10 minutes. That's too long to wait for a pizza. Wasn't even that crowded. When it got to the table it was cold!!! No stringy gooey cheese. They took it back to be reheated and it took... More

Our hotel recommended we go here for authentic chicago pizza. Although we didn't get deep dish the thin crust was delicious. We had a great very nice server. It's family friendly
