Holy moly! This is probably the best tasting pizza I've ever had. Highly recommend the stuffed pizza - well worth the 30 minute wait to be served! Get them to sprinkle goat cheese on top and it's perfect! The sauce tastes homemade, however I forgot to ask the waitress. Only thing I'd recommend is they either not serve the bread... More

I've been hearing about this place for awhile and finally tried it and it was SO worth it! Small place with about 11 tables but quick service from the waitresses for dining in.

You haven't tried local deep dish pizza until you've had a mouthful at the Chicago Style Pizza Shack. Atmosphere: Very nicely decorated dining room. Clean, refreshing & modern. Small waiting area for takeout food. Service: Our waitress 'Aleesha' was on the ball and very friendly. She was informative and attentive. Both the appetizer and deep dish pizza were served in...

this pizza is amazing....don't be in a hurry as it takes a good half hour to prepare so order ahead.....gnocchi is to die for home made sauce ..yummmmmmy... the only thing is the restaurant its self is small but they get people in and out in a reasonable time. Just bare with them because it will be worth every minute...

Great food always. Amazing meals. Limited wine list and always a long wait for a table unless you go early. Still worth it...so go early.never a bad meal.
