Must try the Chicago style pizza with extra sauce. Just add your favorite toppings and enjoy. It's very filling so enjoy the left overs for lunch.

I have been to 2 of their locations several times over the last year. The food is just so so and the service is not good.

As my rating shows I really love this place. The main two reason are their incredible selection of craft beers and their Chicago style deep dish pizza. For not being a tap house, they have a really broad and impressive selection of beers. Their selection is always current with new offerings from Stone, Ballast Pointe, and all the new and... More

Selma's offers several different styles of pizza. I have ordered the Chicago style deep dish pizza. It is very good, not incredible, but very good.

Chicago style and wonderful. They also will make you a thin crust well done New York, if that is your preferred style. Try the fried ravioli as an appetizer with a Selman hefe. Tell them Margarita Mike sent you. Sandwiches are good too, especially Selman sandwich.

Definitely not a Chicago experience at all, Pizza is O.K< Italian beef sandwich not the same at all and I didn't even see a Chicago Hot Dog on the menu. we've been there twice in 15 years We go all the way to Portillo's in Buena Park for the true Chicago experience It's un-believable!!

Decided to try Selma's because of decent ratings and was convenient to where we happened to be at dinner time. The menus had barely landed on the table when our ambitious server asked if we wanted to order. Pet peeve, restaurants that want to rush you through your meal. Pizza was thick and doughy but unremarkable in flavor. Did I... More
