we went back here with high expectations from our last experience..but it left us both down. we went during lunch so maybe the lunch pizzas arent as tasty??? $10 gets you a pizza, salad, and a drink. hard to complain about that even if it tastes like carboard!

We used to have this in Tampa - but outside of Chicago I don't think people eat pizza this way. It ended up closing, which was sad as we visit Giordano's often. The service was awesome. The food is great.

We went to the location on Jackson street, it was in walking distances from the hotel. One of the best pizza's Iv ever had. I was also impressed, with customer service, from Brenda, on 8/11/14 at 2:38 p.m. Restaurant was also very clean. This is a must visit in my book.

If you're looking to sample a true Chicago deep dish pizza, I think this might be the place. You'll have to let the diet go for a night but the splurge is well worth it. Pizzas are great and not greasy (which I found surprising). There was a super long line when we were there, but I'd imagine that is... More

Lousy service even for the take-out. Tried the small Chicago classic stuffed-pizza. Strangely satisfying for the firstimer but cannot eat them every 3-5 days like my beloved thin-crusted NY pizzas! See you...next month but I will in be NY.

The service was slow, it took over an hour to take the pizza, but it was worth it, good taste, good cheese!!! Go there!

Our first time trying Chicago deep dish pizza and Giordano's was recommended to us. We ate outside on the patio as it was a beautiful day and it is quite peaceful outside with the fountains in the courtyard. We ordered a medium pizza with sausage, mushrooms and green pepper. It took about 45 minutes to bake, but we were told... More

I tried a bunch of pizza while visiting Chicago and...this is the one!! It has made me not want the pizza back home in Buffalo anymore so I guess I'll have to order Giordano's online.

We had 3 different pizza's while in Chicago and by far Giordano's was the best. I didn't think I'd like a pie pizza but boy was I wrong. We got the special which had Sausage, mushrooms, green peppers & onions and it was so delicious!!! I'm going to be online ordering for delivery in TN. The service was great and... More

Pretty good pizza, almost as good as Domino's thin crust. Was visiting on business and really wanted a good crispy thin crust pizza, the hotel concierge sent me here and it was definitely "ok" ---- I suppose the thick style may be better. Don't expect good service.
