This place is definitely something out of a 1940's time warp but their pizza is the very best I've ever had--anywhere. They make a great thin crust pie with home-made sausage! I always order the sausage & pepperoni and it's just wonderful! But unlike Bill's Pizza in Mundelein (my second favorite pie,) the Quonset's pizza does not re-heat well, so... More

Used to be the best back in the day. Went during the early afternoon. Not the friendly service I use to get. Cold and uninviting. Pizza was good but nothing to write home about.

Night before we left town and HAD to have Quonset! It has been a favorite for years- so glad to know that even though I moved away--the pizza here hasn't changed. It was a real treat for me and my hubby (he is from Colorado and never tried it) very tasty- keep making it the way you always have.

I have eaten the thin crust pizza at Quonset hut for years and found it to be the best anywhere. The service was friendly and prices reasonable.

If you love the thin crust, this is the place to go. Excellent service! We had a party of 20 and the server was wonderful, got the orders in the right place and even took a picture for us before we left. Good atmosphere and retro kitchen chairs!

This is the thin crust pizza I judge all other by. While that does not mean it is the absolute best I have ever had it is close.

Growing up just outside of Chicago, I always heard that "Chicago pizza" was the best. And while there's nothing like the deep-dish style pizza from places like Pizzeria Uno (which started in downtown Chicago), I would say that Chicago's reputation may have been greatly enhanced by the suburban pizza place called "Quonset", located in Waukegan, IL. It's hard to describe... More

I had gone into WalMart and asked the cashier what she thought was the best local pizza and she recommended this place. Another local person approached me and gave me the info on this place. We ordered one with everything and one with extra cheese and had them delivered. They were thin, and my pizza with everything actually seemed to... More
