The edges are supposed to be black!

That's the carmelized crust on the deep dish pizza made in the traditional Chicago style at The Pequod. Keith the owner has a second location on Clybourn Ave. in Chicago that has the same funky décor and great pizza and salads. After a recent housecleaning most of the antique radios and speakers... read more

After seeing a show rating Pequods I decided to visit. I've been before and loved the pizza but this time the cheese crust was only atop the pizza and not the whole crust as shown on TV. Oh well sometimes success takes a step backwards.

I've noticed this place has a couple bad reviews. and they are probably justified. As a business owner myself, I would like to note that no one is perfect, and everyone is going to have a bad day. I can say with certainty, that Peaquads pizza is delicious, the restaurant has a very home-like feel to it. The staff has... More

Yesterday I had an almost $700 order from Pequod's for a party I was throwing. Not only were they 25 minutes late, they forgot all the serving utensils and plates and napkins. When I called three times to speak to a manager because the food was not there and then they were missing the utensils, a manager refused to get... More

Setting the scene: Rainy night, two adults, one child. We tried this location as my boyfriend has ate at their other location in Chicago. At first, it seems quaint, home in suburbs turned into a pizza parlor nestled among regular homes in area, smelled great, was busy. Location houses about 80 customers or so, bar can only hold 4 people... More

Excellent pan pizza. Plenty of good tasting Italian sausage on a well made crust, good sauce and all in all a very good pan pizza.

Hands down there is no pizza in the world like this!! Pequod's is the definition of Chicago deep dish pizza. I travel all over the world, and have found once you leave the Chicago area, you can't get a pizza to save your life! Compare the best pizza places in Chicago; this is by far the best. It's not a...

The pizza was excellent! It had a great crust with crunchy backed cheese around the edge. The beer was cold and the margaritas went down smooth and deliciously. Would come back in a heartbeat.
