Crazy good deep dish pizza with servers who hustle. Totally non descript bldg in a plain neighborhood. The crust is perfection which must be from the heat of the ovens which you can feel from the side street! Just great! From a 5th generation Chicagoan.

So,you're looking for a place for great pizza? I've got just the place it's Pequods. It's not on a busy street or in a food court or a mall. It is about 1/4 block in on Fernald Ave. right off of Lincoln on a residential side street. Now that makes it a neighborhood Pizzeria. Not only do the locals come... More

4 of us called ahead and reserved a table and ordered our pies. Deep pan pizza cooks for 40-45 minutes. We were sat within minutes of our arrival and the pizza was on the table in less than 10 minutes. The best dish pizza in chicago. Reasonable price. Friendly service. Nice comfortable atmosphere. Highly recommended!

This was my first and last visit to Pequods. My friend and I met there at 11:05 on a Friday--5 minutes after they open. The place looks like a dump from the outside but it's a pizzeria so that's not uncommon. One other woman was seated alone in the restaurant when we arrived at our table. A few minutes later,...

We wanted to have good deep dish (aka pan pizza) while visiting Chicago....We asked some locals in Morton Grove, Ill. where we were staying...They said that Pequod's Pizza was by far the best anywhere in Chicago (in any of their locations) in the Chicago area! Boy were they spot on correct! WOWEE!! The pizza was beyond very good! The crust... More

Pequod's pan pizza is absolutely delicious. Gooey cheese, flavorful sauce & a carmelized crunchy crust. We prefer the pepperoni, but the veggie is also outstanding. We LOVE the sweet, homey atmosphere, tucked in to a neighborhood, unchanged for years. Yes it is small, but the intimacy is what makes it fun .The staff is exceptional as well. I never liked...

Went on Halloween with a group of 8. Very very small restaurant but great food and service. We shared the house salad and the appetizer assortment and they were both good. Had the deep dish pizza in several varieties and all were excellent. Very reasonably priced as well!

Great local place that is well great family fare. Nothing fancy as it is a small place so expect close quarters but the atmosphere is great as is the deep dish pizza. We always look for an excuse to go!
