On our last trip to Chicago my family made a list of all the foods we wanted to try. Deep dish pizza was at the top of the list. We considered several places but my mother-in-law suggested this one as it was not only delicious but nearby. We were not disappointed. The dining room appeared small but we'd called ahead... More

Wished we had triedokoume thing else! This was recommended o us for their deep dish pizza. We waited 20 minutes while the dining area was clearly not filled. Ordered a meat lovers pizza and they were all out of bacon and sausage so ended up with tons of pepperoni. Not a cozy atmosphere. Only good point was the free shuttle... More

We visited Chicago and were really looking forward to eating at Giordano's on Western Ave. We arrived at approximately 7:00 on a Thursday night, the restaurant was half empty. We were informed at the hostess station, rather rudely, that they were under-staffed and expected a large party so they were unable to seat us. We were very disappointed after traveling... More

My husband kept raving about Giordano's good food, that it was only natural that on my first visit to Chicago I had to try it out to see what the hype was all about and all I can say was that it was delicious. I normally dont like too much crust, but the amount of cheese they had inside the... More

We were in Chicago today and decided to have an early lunch at Giordano's. We left very disappointed. 4 of us had eaten pizza on Saturday and decided to order a sandwich. The other two each ordered an individual deep dish pizza. We were seated promptly but waited quite a while for the waiter to take our orders. Once we... More

I had not had pizza in over 4months, saving the experience for "THE DEEP DISH PIZZA OF CHICAGO". After an1.5 hour wait and most of that time trying to jump at the opportunity to grab someone's seat around bar area that were being moved to the dining area, we were finally seated. My mouth was salivating, we were brought our... More

There are a few deep dish pizza places that are the favourites Don't bother with them, this is a chain - the fact that we discovered much later - and they are everywhere, but the food is good and the fact that they are everywhere means you should be abel to get good food without waiting in line Be warned,...

There is a 1,5 hour wait which drove me nuts, but the pizza worthed it! It wasn't really my type of pizza - I like the real Italian ones, that are thin, and less cheese. But the experience was great! the stuff was very friendly and the atmosphere real cozy!

For our one night in Chicago, we chose the best place to eat. My boyfriend and I ordered a medium deep dish - trust me you only need a small for two! We ended up taking half of it back to the hotel! Service was efficient - they said there was a 30 min wait for a table, after 10mins... More
