We stopped here on our way to Tennessee because we wanted something different. It was a little later in the evening. We were greeted promptly as we entered the door. I took a while for our server to finally show up. My husband tried the spaghetti pie and was not to thrilled with it along with the meatball, which he... More

We had the buffet on a sunday afternoon, the pizza was great, it was a decent tasting pizza. Nothing exceptional, just good tasting pizza, the bread sticks were delicious but went very fast. There was always a good variety and they keep the pizza coming out fresh. Worth the money if everyone cannot agree on what to order. We had... More

First time at old Chicago. Incredible, I wish I had one back home. It would shut down all the competition. Had the Italian Nachos appetizer, yum, yum, yum. I've had something with the same name at Carrinos, but no comparison! Super large selection of beers on tap. Deep dish pizza was unbelievable... but we could not finish it! Service was... More

This was the highlight of my trip. I had heard this place was really good and it did not disappoint. I had the wings and the royale margherita deep dish pizza. Both were really good. The pizza might have been one of the better ones I have ever had. Great atmosphere, laid back great service. Will definitely come back here... More

The service that we received was great. The food was our major issue. We had the all you can eat pizza bar and it was just average at best. We love pizza, we eat it once or twice a week. However, we will not be returning for pizza here.

We were in the area to complete the Kentucky Bourbon Trail and chose the restaurant because we wanted a drink and Italian that night and this turned out to be our favorite of the week! One of us is a beer drinker and was in heaven with all of the choices and the other is a sweet drinker and again... More

We LOVE pizza. We picked Old Chicago over Smashing Tomatoes simply due to the Old Chicago's description of a deep dish chicago style pizza. We were so disappointed. I swear, it tasted exactly like Pizza Huts Supreme pizza. The crust on the bottom was thick (like 2 of Pizza Huts pan crust together), there was no crust around the pizza... More

Our first visit to Old Chicago and the food, we had Pizza, was very good. They promote their extensive beer selection, but our waitress for the night was relatively new and wasn't able to answer most of our questions --- and never did volunteer to get someone who could. They were not swamped with business on the weekday night we... More

The food is awesome. I had spaghetti pizza when I went there which I've never had before but it was really good. We sat down right away. Tvs everywhere and great family atmosphere. Everyone in our group liked what they ordered and for dessert we got a chocolate chip cookie pie which is one of the best desserts I've had... More
