In San Diego. What a great find for tourists wanting a fast food dinner. Born and raised
In Chicago, I can truly write, this place is authentic Chicago taste and vibes. Would request more Southside White Sox Memories and Photos to display here on walls. The staff was very attentive and one can dine in or carry out. Prices are fair. Parking could be a problem but we found it easy the night we visited.

Wow! The best thin crust pizza ever. This is our go to place.
There is indoor seating and out door. One must call ahead to order take out.

If you like garlic, if you like cheese, if you like bread, then, my freaking goodness, you’ll love this place! I highly recommend the garlic cheese bread as a starter while you wait for the pizza. Thin and Crispy will take about 25 min. The wait is worth it, and it really was crispy, even with the amazing amount of sauce that was on it!

Was a little bummed at their service. The lady at the front counter just kinda stared at us when we entered, and we weren’t really greeted or felt welcome. It was our first time there, as we are traveling, and we had to figure out what to do on our own. One of the guys who served the food kinda made up for it, as he was friendly and grabbed some silverware for us, and he wished us a good night on our way out.

The deep dish pizza is amazing! Have a veggie salad on the side for the perfect meal. Can buy pizza by the slice if you just want a little.
