High Quality Pies

We live kinda close to F&O's and have been a few times. I actually haven't eaten in there in quite some time, but we get carry out every few months. The pizzas are fantastic. I've never had true Chicago deep dish pizza, but this strikes me as great deep dish pizza. No kidding, it's probably... read more

We used to live in Des Moines and always enjoyed the deep dish Alfredo pizza with shrimp and chicken. Since moving away, we haven't found another pizza place with deep dish pizza that is as good. We were on our way through town and had to stop. We we not disappointed! Delicious!!

The host family reserved a large area of the place for a birthday party. The servers are very attentive cleaning up empty plates and insuring the beer and wine was stocked. The food was great.

We have mostly taken out, but have also eaten in at Felix and Oscars. We order one thing: deep dish Italian sausage and mushroom pizza. We have eaten it many times over the many years. It's great!

Went to Felix and Oscar's for lunch. The food was some of the best my husband and I have eaten. The Italian food is so good. I had the Fire Burger and it was outstanding. While it doesn't have a lot of curb appeal, the food is well worth a trip to this restaurant.

As we currently live in Asia F&o's was on the top of our list for places we must eat when we return. Great Chicago style pizza. Wings my kids couldn't get enough of. A true taste of home

This has been a favorite since we moved to town 30 years ago. Recent upgrades to the building are amazing. Food and staff is always wonderful. The online ordering is a MUST DO for those with impatient children. Call ahead/online order, walk in and dinner is served. Sunday buffet is wonderful and so affordable. It's my hope that they are...
