“sam the waiter was the best! food was good/beer was cold!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

had a great first experience at old Chicago.. sam was our waiter and we had a great time..we gave him a very hard time, but had a lot of fun...*wish I had gotten to go to Hawaii like he did! we just have to live with being able to go to keywest! I did get to tell his coworkers how great he was before leaving hopefully he got a pat on the back at least....our friends have eaten there before and still enjoyed it.. we will stop again.... and hopefully get him for a waiter again..

We had pizza and our friends ordered mozz sticks with sauce and they were awesome...

“Great pizza and beer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Pizza buffet for lunch which is quick and good. It's better to order your own pizza though, if you have time. The pizza is delicious and they have over 100 beers to choose from. A bit of a sports bar atmosphere, but fine to take kids. There is a small amount of outside seating. Popular for pre- and post-games.

“Old Chicago is safer than Real Chicago!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

On game day, the food hits the spot either before, during or after the Hawkeyes have graced the field (or dirtied it up). The food is pretty good and the prices are prices fairly for an economy that continues to act in total confusion. The waitresses have always been most gracious even on those occasions when the food has not. I would rate it as one of the better pizza establishments in town but certainly not the best.

“Great pizza!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

I'm a Chicagoan so I know pizza and Old Chicago's pizza is really good. I had a personal sized thin crust and, just like it should be, the crust was crispy, the toppings fresh (though I wish yellow onions were an option - Chicago pizzas do not have scallions or red onions!). Service was good, even though I was alone, and the drinks were good too. The restaurant has TVs everywhere so you won't miss your game and it is very close to many of the Coralville hotels. Highly recommend!

“About the same as others”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

We ate there on a Monday night so was relatively quiet except for the younger group (teenagers) there with their friends. Meals were good, fair priced but service was slower than would be expected with not very many customers. Our waitress was friendly and attentive. Did look a bit unkempt, not exactly dirty but like they hadn't had time to catch up from a previous busy time (which I doubt there was).
