“About as good as Chicago Deep Dish gets”
Review of Original Gino's East - CLOSED

Original Gino's East
Cuisines: Italian, Pizza
Restaurant details
Reviewed May 7, 2012

We've been coming here for years - back when there was space on the walls where you could write stuff. The place reminds me of a college campus beer joint as a result. The go-to pizza for us is the PATTY (not crumbled) sausage (you have to ask for it) deep dish with mushrooms, garlic, and olives. You may find you have over-ordered if you think a large is what you need - but because the pie is so thick, you really find that 2 slices is plenty. Lots of other choices too - even thin crust for you non-believers.

"I think we're ripping them off" is what was said at the lunch table as all 6 of us ordered the lunch special (personal 1 topping deep dish pizza, salad, and drink for $7).

The pizza is delicious, although it takes some time to cook, but definitely worth it if you have the time. Plus salad, bread, and a drink, and all for $10 including tax and tip. Definitely can't beat this deal for a nice lunch.

We had a Ginos East delivered to our hotel and it was very good. This was our first Ginos East pizza. We liked it better that other Chicago deep dish we have tried on other visits to Chicago. The pizza came hot and right on time! Keep up the good work!

Visiting with family a friend took us to Gino's East for dinner. Had to get the deep dish pepperoni supreme. It does take a while to cook . Of course it's deep dish. Had the mozzerella & spinach stick appetizer . A cold Fat Tire. The pizza was fantastic . The best ingredients make a super pizza. Outstanding. Would definately go back. Service was attentive. Made our evening.
