Best Local Thin Crust

I love Dan’s thin crust pizza. There are probably more than a dozen places to get pizza in Downers Grove, and I have tried most of them, but for thin curst Dan’s is my favorite. My favorite is sausage, onion, and green pepper. I have also had Dan’s BBQ Special. It is a very tasty variation... read more

Many people rave about this place but I found their pizza just OK with sub-par sausage. This place could be much better if they would invest in quality ingredients.

There are only a few almost literal, Hole-in-the-wall places left on this planet that deserve our attention. Dane's pizza is definitely one of them. A vintage PAC-MAN arcade sits to the right of the order window. Time wasters rule! If you stop in without calling ahead, you will have entertainment. I would recommend calling ahead, to pick up your order... More

Whatever you order at a regular pizza place, order twice as much at dans. The cracker crust pizza is very tasty, but it will not feed a crowd.

I first went to Dan's his grand opening week and have continued to go there on a regular basis in the 25 years that followed. In that time, I've probably ordered 300 pizzas from Dan's with only one less than satisfactory experience - which Dan took care of immediately. If you find yourself in the Lisle/Downers Grove area - forget... More

Dan's Pizza is the best pizza in the western suburbs of Chicago. The thin crispy crust is the best ever. Loads of toppings, quick service, delicious!!
