Is there anyone in the state of Alabama that can make a Chicago style deep dish pizza? My family came here and was treated terribly. The management spoke to every table but our table. The waitress overlooked us until it just became obvious. I really wanted to treat my family to this pizza but they settled for subs and a... More

I love this place because it really reminds me of living in Chicago, Illinois. If you or your family are any where near Hwy. 150 in Hoover, Alabama, you should go buy and check these guys out. They're so worth it. It's just like having Chicago in Hoover!!!!

We got the deep dish pizza. It took 45 minutes to cook, which they warned us before we ordered. I wish we'd called in our order ahead of arrival, but it was well worth the wait. I was also glad we got there a little early. It was a Friday night, and by 6:30 PM there was a substantial line... More

We eat or order from here about every two weeks. Yes we are pizza lovers. Service is great whether dining in or out. Pizza is excellent! A medium does the two of us perfect with lunch the next day. If you haven't tried, you need to!

Fantastic deep dish Chicago style pizza. The sauce is excellent and the pizza dough is perfect. Definitely get the garlic bread with the marinara - sinful.

We ordered a pizza and salad for the two of us. I was shocked to see how large the salad was! It was a meal and a half by itself. The one thing that I could respect was that it was 30 minutes to closing on a Tuesday night and there were at least 10 tables filled with people and... More

Was afraid my 12 year old son might not like the authentic style pizza, but I was so very wrong. He loved it. You... More

We were greeted and seated right away. Very friendly staff . Since we were new the server explained their menu to us. They took our order and brought out a small basket of garlic bread. Be prepared to wait 45 minutes for your pizza. They do tell you this on the menu. When the pizza arrived the sauce was extremely... More

Every time I come to Hoover for work, I make a stop here. The staff is very friendly, and the deep dish pizza is where it's at. I have never had a bad pizza from Tortugas, and I plan to keep going back every time I'm in town.

Okay, yes the pizza is delicious, we've tried all of the types. Their lasagna is great, nice portion and I always have to have the Antipasto salad. The small is large enough to share. The best part of this restaurant is the staff, service is EXCELLENT! I love how the owners walk around and know and recognize the customers. It's... More
