“Very Busy Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

Having been to Chicago, I was eager to have another "Chicago Style Deep Dish Pizza".
Upon arrival, I wasnt sure where to park. There is no real parking lot, as this is on a main street.
Once getting there (thank goodness we arrived early)- this place was busy, and they were just opening.
Upon entering staff was the attentive and quickly managed to get us a seat. Within 15mins, there was a line up at the door, either for seating or for take-out. At this point I knew this place was clearly popular.
We ordered our deep dish pizza, and had a salad to start. The pizza which looked much like it did in Chicago, the only difference I noticed, was that it appeared to be more greasy. I believe that may be from the cheese. Otherwise, this was about as close as I was going to get. It wasnt bad, but it wasnt the same.
The staff was very efficient and friendly. The portions of food coming out of the kitchen were massive. I can easily say that I would go back and would definitely sample more choices from their menu.
