I came up to Estes with my wife and 4 kids for a nice weekend getaway. While roaming downtown we came upon Chicago's Best. We had pizza slices and my wife and I had the gyros. It was all very good. The pizza needed an extra minute or two in the oven. The prices were good. And the people were... More

Stopped in for a quick sandwich. Philly Cheese Steak and Italian Beef Combo were very good. Sandwiches were good size and the fires were above average. This is more of a cafeteria than a restaurant, I can't rate the service because there really is no service, you order at the counter and when you are done you are expected to... More

As a senior traveler, we don't always go to places that cater to families, but we are glad we ate at Chicago's Best. The food was reasonable and decent. A pizza place should be good and up-beat. Don't go there for the up-scale atmosphere, but do enjoy the family-friendly ambiance. The staff make you feel welcome.

I have eaten here many times, as we visit Estes Park every year. I have eaten Pizza and a variety of sandwiches. My favorite is the Italian Beef with hot peppers. I like the food a lot, but wish the owner would clean up and fix up the interior. I am certain they lose customers before they even order food,... More

We have only had take-out pizza and calzone from Chicago's best. Both were delicious. Nothing to dislike.

The "pizza" here was terrible. Really, really bad. It was overcooked, the cheese was greasy and fake tasting, and the wait was interminable. We both concluded that the "pizza" here was so bad that it doesn't actually count as pizza.

This is a great Pizza shop. My wife and I was strolling along downtown Estes, shopping and looking at the tremendous amounts of Art. We ran across Chicago's Best, the pizza smelled great it tasted great. I would recommend this shop if you are in the mood for Pizza.

This restaurant was a big disappointment. The restaurant was absolutely filthy and extremely small first of all, but we decided to give it the benefit of the doubt anyway. When we paid for our order, there was a space to put in a tip. Say what?! It isn't even a sit-down restaurant. There were four of us (2 children, 2... More

Had lunch here upon recommendation of a local. We just had sandwiches, but the bread was fresh and tasty with lots of meat and fresh ingredients. We noticed the pizza slices were huge that some customers next to us were eating. Good place for a quick lunch and the outdoor seating is always relaxing in Estes Park.

Maybe it is because I have lived in Chicago and was expecting a more Chicago-style pizza, but I found the food to be a let down. The pizza was average at best, reminding me of the old Monical's pizza chain in the mid-west. The sandwiches were not much better. When you top it off with relatively high prices, I can't... More
