“Too much seasoning”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2014 via mobile

Ordered pizza to have it delivered to our hotel room
It arrived very quickly.
However the pizza was LOADED w seasoning. So much that my kids wouldn't even eat it. So, a waste of $30.
Disappointed because all the reviews said it was great.

“Best Pizza in the City!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

If you're looking to get real pizza, with good sauce, flavorful crust, and great toppings, then South of Chicago is the place to go. The "deep dish" is as close to Chicago as it gets.

“good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2013

I have eaten here several times and have found the Italian beef sandwich and pizza very good and the price very reasonable. Unlike other reviews I have never had bad service. The place is not very big so I would advise to go early before prime time.

“Truly Chicago taste!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2013

I moved to Indy from Chicago some 30 years ago, but visit there often and wish that someone in Indy could figure out how to make a decent Chicago-style pizza. That's not just the crust...its the sausage and the seasoning!
I finally found it! South of Chicago apparently makes their own Italian sausage and it is very good.! It has the fennel seeds and other seasonings that you rarely find at pizza places outside of Chicago.
We had a thin crust pizza and were very happy with it. The breadsticks are good, too; crunchy on the outside and soaked in garlic butter, but soft on the inside.
Downside is, pizza takes a long time to make (tho you can apparently call ahead), and service not that great. Had to ask for many things like silverware, where's my beer?, etc.

“Italian Beef rocks !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2013

I lived in Chicago for 10 years and came to love the pizza, hot dogs, and beef sandwhiches that city is known for. The hardest thing about moving to Indianapolis was leaving those delicacies behind. Well, thats no longer an issue. This place's Italian Beef might be better than any I had in Chicago - and trust me, I've had 'em everywhere. I didn't try the pizza but I looked at other patrons who did. You can tell its the real deal. Looking forward to trying it on my next visit. I will be back.
