Love the pizza!

The first time you pull up to Lilly's and go inside you will wonder if you have made a mistake. Lilly's is not your typical pizza restaurant. No fancy decor, no stuffy waiters, no fine furniture, no fancy dishes you can't pronounce. No, just darn good food! Lilly's is a place where the folks... read more

This is the best kind of hole-in-the-wall joint – it had weird art and knick-knacks everywhere, and HUGE food portions! We ordered a lot of food to begin with, and then it came out and we realized we’re not going to be able to finish half of this! We definitely got our money’s worth! I had a calzone, my wife... More

Ok so all I've heard of how great this place is. I'm not impressed. I ordered the super duper and there waters. Ok so you have to get your water from a small water fountain in the corner. No ice. Yep i said it no ice. I asked for some ice and to then it seemed like a bother. I... More

Holy moly! Ok, I can only speak for the gluten free pizza since that is all I can eat there. My significant other does say the regular pizza is amazing, as well! My gluten free crust is not like the normal pizza places where it is thin, and crispy. Lilly's gf crust is kind of dense, but there is substance... More

I love Lily’s, but last time we entered (9pm on a Thursday), he place was a mess! Looked like a bomb hit it. NO tables cleared and never saw an employee clear a table in the entire thirty minutes we were there. And, yes—— it took thirty minutes to get two slices. Finally went to the register and there our... More

We left a Bulls game and we're looking for dinner. We wanted Italian and TA rated Lilly's #1. No mystery why. First off, the place is pretty cool. Just a bit of everything thrown in for decor. Now the food. We had pizza, pesto ravioli and pig in a poke calzone. We did NOT leave hungry nor disappointed. Guy behind... More

Lilly's is your "hole in the wall" pizza place. The pizza is wonderful (and I love pizza)! They have a huge variety so everyone will find something they like, but we had a hard time narrowing it down, so we got half Five Point (pesto, garlic, tomatoes, cheese) & half Super Duper (cheese, pepperoni, sausage, beef, bacon). Both were awesome!

It was Father's Day and the wait at our original restaurant was crazy, so we went next door to Lilly's for pizza and what a great decision that was! We were there when it opened so got a table but I understand there's often a wait (definitely worth waiting for!). The crust is really crispy on the outside and chewy... More
