My husband & I went out for a pre-Valentine's Day dinner of deep dish pizza at South of Chicago. What a disappointment!! We knew the pizza would take a while, deep dish always does. We expected a hot delicious pie, what we got was a...room temp doughy pie. We sent it back so they could finish cooking it, when it finally came out again it was hot but pretty much flavor-free. We had the all meat pizza which was not exactly meaty. We will stick to pizza from Jockamos.More

A new restaurant to try, and we really wanted to love this place -- but we didn't! Went for lunch. Decided to do the buffet so we could get an overall feel for what their pizza was like. $10.50 for a pizza buffet is outrageous,...to begin with. The salad bar was nothing special. There were no breadstix on the salad bar. The thin crust pizza was not fresh -- in fact, it was limp. The deep dish pizza was more fresh. Toppings were noticeably scarce! The deep dish pizza had a good flavor -- cheese and sauce were quite tasty. Again, couldn't believe how scarce the toppings were! Definitely won't be going back. Jockamo is still the best pizza available on the southside -- good prices, lots of toppings -- great pizza!!More

I truly miss Chicago style beef sandwiches and pizza. Order the ital beef with grilled bread and it tastes like home.

My husband and I eat visit this location weekly. Our favorite is the thin pizza with Italian sausage and fresh garlic. I am a pizza connoisseur and it is a superb pizza with exceptional flavor. My husband loves the selection of carryout beer. They have...unique options that can not be found in the grocery store like Three Floyds. It's very convenient to get your favorite pizza and beer together. They will even deliver the beer. We also love their meatballs and the Italian Beef sandwich. The employees are friendly and the restaurant is clean.More

I was recommended to try this pizza restaurant. I went there with a friend. The place itself (being honestly) did not promise a lot. But ones we started with the garlic spinach bread, we were pretty convinced that we found a good place. I had...never tried a pan pizza before. I ordered the 10” pizza which I constructed myself. Boy, was this a big pizza! I must say it was delicious! Very friendly service made the experience complete. I highly recommend to try this place out. It is not cheap. But I guess normally the 10” pizza will be shared between two. Then the price is good.More

Earlier in the week we went to Portillo's to re-acquaint ourselves with their Italian Beef sandwich. It was good. Then we went to South of Chicago to sample theirs, which costs $2 more. It was worth the difference. This was THE BEST Italian Beef sandwich...I've ever had, going back 60 years. The pizza looked really good, too; but that wasn't why we were there. The whole place is rather spartan in appearance and easy to miss if you're just casually driving by. But none of that matters. Only the sandwich matters. Wow.More

Visited both South of Chicago locations a number of times. The Greenwood location is somewhat more convenient but I definitely like the fact that this one has a parking lot. I've had the pizza, Italian beef, Italian beef and sausage and tonight I tried the...Chicken Parmigiana sandwich and the mozzarella cheese sticks. I've never had anything that I didn't like. They have a number.of beers on tap and many bottler beers. Service has always been pretty good clean restrooms and a clean restaurant as well. Will keep coming back to South of Chicago.More

We were already familiar with South of Chicago pizza from our visits to the Virginia Ave/ Fountain Square location. So when we heard SoS was opening a location near us, we were thrilled! We started with bread sticks (complimentary if you sign up for their...promotional text messages) while we waited for our small (10") deep dish sausage + extra cheese pizza. (It takes about 20 minutes to make a proper deep dish pizza so either call ahead of be patient.) The pizza was plenty for the three of us. The marinara sauce is the main feature of the pizza and is a sweet sauce (which I love). The sausage was in large pieces scattered about - I'd prefer smaller pieces. The cheese was plentiful and tasty. The crust was perfect and very tasty. We were certainly not disappointed and will return for sure!More

The buffet price ($10.50) Includes six kinds of pizza, three deep dish and three thin crusted, a fresh salad bar, Itailian beef sandwiches, and a fountain drink. The sales tax is also included in the final price. Really clean restaurant and pleasant employee's.

Firstly, I'm from Chicago. Unless i travel to Chicago and go to a stand, or buy Scala's beef and gravy (au jus) at Dominick's, I can't get a good beef. I've started making my own. Well, that was before SOC moved down here. Great beef,...good gravy, quality Turano bread (a Chi Italian beef MUST be served on a Turano or Gonella roll). So that's a top pick. I like mine "wet" with giardinara, and it's a great meal. Their sausage is also top quality. Flavorful, not fatty, and the red gravy (sauce) is incredibly good. So now you've got great red gravy, what you put in it? The best meatballs in the area. Tender, tasty, and really filling in a satisfying, but not 'heavy' way. If you're from Chi, you know it's not all about deep dish, there is some terrific thin crust (e.g., Rosati's). South of Chi nails this too. I like a super thin, almost like a cracker or a matzoh type crust, and this isn't that, but it's just a few mm thicker. The crust is thin, it's not bread, it's a crust. It's crispy on the edges, and has good "tooth" in the middle without being dough-y. I HATE eating essentially raw flour on local "bread crust" pizzas. The ingredients are real pepperoni and real sausage (not that dog kibble the chains use), the cheese blend is tasty, generous and sauce is really fantastic. And the pie is cooked correctly, fully cooked crust, a little 'burn' or color on the mozzarella (mix) on top, but still juicy because the amount of sauce is correct. So, excellent It. Beef, It. Sausage, Meatballs and Thin Crust. By the way, I like deep dish too and this is a deep dish pie, not a "pan of bread" with a thin pizza on top. I've had the deep dish off the buffet and it's authentic too. It's hard to find their specials on the web or their menu; currently, the lunch buffets are MON: It beef and pizza, TUE: It saus. and pizza, WED: Meatballs in sauces and pizza, I don't know what thurs and fri are but i think they are some kind of pasta. Really really good food, clean restaurant, nice people. Maybe a buck or two higher than your chains, but for real 'pie' instead of that cardboard they serve, i think it's great value.More
