Favorite Pizza

There were many other pizza places nearby, but he felt it was worth the trip to get it. I remember when there was only the bar area, with a few... read more

My in-laws grew up in South Chicago. They wanted to take several of us to the Pizza place they used to date at. They have eight of them now, but we went to the original in South Chicago. I'm not from Chicago, but I've been there a few times and been to about five well known Pizza places. I think... More

I grew up around Chicago and suburbs and used to eat at the original Home Run Inn when I worked on the West Side some 30 years ago. Recently visited and found the pizza just as good as it was back then. It's not well-known outside of Chicago but it is much better than the big name pizza places and... More

Everyone enjoyed their choice of pizza and the sizes were so big, they brought home alot to share. It's so nice to not have to go to 31st or to the western suburbs to have... More

We stopped into Home Run Inn on a nostalgic trip back home. It was a tiny place when we came here as kids in the 60's and it was a favorite neighborhood spot. First, the restaurant has grown. It is gigantic. They have branches in many major suburbs. Still, the service was personable and efficient. The pizza arrived at our... More

Home Run Inn is still My fave pizza joint in Chicago! The best thin crust pizza you will taste! Chgo is known for deep dish but Home Run inn is best known for the thin crust and the crust itself is YUUUMMMM. That's my favorite part.

We had turkey in gravy, excellent. Pasta, excellent. The pizza..... One of the best chicago has ever seen. It was all... More
