The Chicago deep dish pizza is to die for. Plan ahead as it does take 45 min or so for your pizza but well worth the wait!!! The sauce is excellent and toppings are plentiful! This is a cant miss meal!!! Enjoy!

We lived in Chicago so we know the originals. We have been all over and tried places that say they have Chicago style deep dish pie. But not a single one of them lived up to the promise. Until now. Tortugas is the real deal....More
