We came at 2:30pm on a weekday. There’s a line outside the restaurant. We waited 20 mins for a table. We had white clams pizza, the original tomato pie and margherita pizza. We like all of the flavors we ordered.

This is probably gonna aggravate a lot of people so pull your big girl panties up people and hang on! I don’t understand the hype with this place? I truly believe that Pepe’s is a product of the “bandwagon”. People just gravitate to what’s popular...More

Frank Pepe’s is a popular spot, so be prepared for a wait. However, based on the line outside locals keep coming back. We’re from the Chicago area, so if you prefer deep dish pizza this may to be your choice. We like thin crust pizza,...More
