“Great pizza and salads”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

This place makes great pizza; not a fan of deep dish, I always push to compromise on thin crust and its always great. The arugula salad is awesome too, not just a few sprigs of arugula but a solid bowlful.

All the good should be complimented with some info. It takes 30-45min to get a table and 30-45min to get a pizza. Hey, good things take time. We always order our pizzas while waiting to be sat at our table, then the pizza shows up minutes after being sat.

All in all it's a great place!

“Delicious Pizza!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

I visited this restaurant with my family on a recommendation from a woman in a shop down the street. We loved it! The deep dish pizza was beyond tasty. Came back again later in the week and enjoyed it just as much! The pizza takes 40-45 minutes but is well worth the wait.

“As close to Wabash Street in Chicago as you'll get”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

Most Californians think "deep dish" is thick crust - a loaf of bread with sauce. Those who know Chicago deep dish know it's thin crust, but lots of cheese and ingredients: a meal on a slice. Paxti's is as close as you can get.

“FANTASTIC pizza, nice atmosphere, free parking!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Chicago pizza is in my blood (you are what you eat), and I get my transfusions at Patxi's. Delicious Chicago-style pizza with a tasty crust, plus beer & wine & soft drinks. The staff is friendly, the restaurant and restrooms are very clean, there are two televisions tuned to sporting events. Patxi's is WHEELCHAIR ACCESSIBLE, and there's free parking in lots a few doors away and across the street.
