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. We ordered 2 beers, fried ravioli, and a small stuffed pizza (which is more than enough for two people WITH take home). The fried ravioli was delicious... More

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.

We popped in here for dinner on a Friday night around 8PM. The place was very busy and we had to wait about a half hour for a table, but it didn't bother us much. The waitress was lovely, and she was running off her feet, only two working that night. We asked what the specialty item was and she... More

Chicago style used to be one of the best but it seems like since they were on You Gotta Eat Here the recipe has changed.. pizza is still good, but no longer fantastic. If you order takeout, pad your arrival time - if they say 30 minutes, it'll likely be an hour.

Food is subjective, so just because I like it doesn't mean you will and vise versa. If you want the best chicken wings go to Buffalo if you want the best soul food go to New Orleans, if you want Chicago style pizza.......... go to Chicago and this is what I've done in my travels over the years. I've had... More
