“Great Pizza Delivery to Downtown”
Reviewed March 23, 2014

We heard a lot of good things about this restaurant being a hidden gem in Lincoln Park and we decided to give it a try. The pizza was really great! We ordered a small pizza with anchovies, mushrooms, and black olives. Unlike cheap pizza places that put the whole anchovies fish as toppings, the anchovies were amazingly cooked and chopped up so the whole pizza taste really good. If anyone needed suggestions on what goes with anchovies, here's my 2 cents, find something that balance out the saltiness: mushrooms, green peppers, onions, and pineapples all will balance out anchovies. Pick the ones you like!

This pizza doesn't look amazing because the sides were black, but it is actually caramelized crispy mozzarella cheese. The dough in my opinion is really great! My husband thinks it is a bit to much dough and not enough red sauce. But we both LOVED this pizza.

When we called, we were hoping that they would deliver as we were downtown and it seems on the website that they don't deliver lower than the river line. But when we called, they actually do deliver this far! So if you don't feel like going all the way to lincoln park, most downtown areas they deliver! They originally told us it will take 1hr and 45 min which turned out to be 1hr 15 min, so we were really happy about it!

Forgot to add, this kind of good small pizza was only like $8, and they basically can feed two adult men since it is deep dish. So you can't beat that price!!

Overall it is an amazing experience. We hope to go to the actual restaurant next time and enjoy the atmosphere also!

“Best deep dish in chicago.”
Reviewed March 12, 2014

Hands down the best deep I have ever had. I recommend making reservations as this place gets packed on the weekends. Ordered 2 large deep dish and one thin crust and that was plenty for our party of 9. Service was great and as busy as it was we never felt ignored. We pre-ordered our pizza's at least an hour before our reservations so that way we did not have to wait 45 min to an hour because that's how long the deep dish take to cook.

“Absolutely the best deep dish in Chicago”
Reviewed March 5, 2014

Pequod's has been rated #1 by various local and national surveys over the course of the years. Best ingredients, best preparation equals the best deep dish pizza in Chicago. They carmelize the cheese over their crust to give this sublime "morsel" just a bit more of a standout taste. Nothing compares. And Pequod's thin crust pizza rates right up with Chicago's best, also.

“Chicago Native Favorite”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

Pizza that blows Chicago's popular pizza joins out of the water (For Deep Dish). If you appreciate great crust to bring your deep dish to the best pizza experience you were hoping for, Pequods has perfected the recipe.

“Great deep dish pizza!”
Reviewed February 24, 2014

Saw this on trip advisor and gave it a shot. Went for the lunch time special, which was a great deal. The place was busy and the staff was fun. The pizza is the best deep dish pizza I have ever had. Will go back for sure!
