Don't even pretend you're not gonna stuff yourself silly here. Go Chicago-style (I love the sausage-topped version) and regret nothing.

Gino's East offers the deepest pizza, with heavy sauce and ingredients. It's like the Mona Lisa of Chicago pizzas and taste incredible. Bring the family and friends - no one will talk until the meal is done because you will be in love with each bite. Absolutely incredible.

Best Pizza in Chi-Town – I've been eating Gino's and other Chi-Town Pizza's for pretty much 2 decades and Gino's is the best. If you haven't had it try it.

Good Memories – I've been a fan of Gino's East since I was in high school making trips to the restaurant (in its old location) and writing my name where ever I could. So maybe it's the nostalgia that keeps bringing me back...or maybe it's the pizza. Out of all the other famous Chicago deep dish pizza joints, this is still my favorite. I love the sausage where you get a mouthful in every bite due to the rolled out sausage patty that COMPLETELY covers the pie. One slice is enough for me...which is a good thing because the leftovers are just as good as the original!

Not worth the hype at all – Chicago is a “pizza” town and sadly so many of my friends when they come to town want to try Ginos. I took my friends here recently and was disappointed yet again. I wish I understood why this place gets so much attention, the pizza is just plain bad. The deep dish… it’s a combo of chewy-greasy-over and under cooked all at the same time “thing” that will sit like a rock in you. To be fair, I still have never tried their thin crust, and if I ever go again… I’ll have to see if the thin is better.

AWFUL – The starters were greasy...greasy, greasy...The pizza was undercooked with raw topings....The side salad was brown lettuce and one onion ring...We were left waiting for over 40 mins....The food is way over-priced... We had fine dining meals which were better value!!!!!We were all ill afterwards.....

Worst Pizza I've Ever Had! – We went in to the one on Superior and ordered a large, 3 topping DD pizza, and cheesy bread for carry out. Cost's were conveniently not posted, but hey, it's just pizza right. WRONG. We were rung up and told the price was over $45.00!!! Yes, I could have left, but we were hungry, and it's famous...so...the fool in me paid, and was told to wait for the next 45 minutes in a corner of a hallway with 1 chair (and 5 people waiting).

The place was filthy, the cooking staff was spending more time eating and talking than working (including the manager on duty). Over 1 hour later our pizza arrived. We we're rudely "shoved off" as though we were miscreants for ordering carry-out.

Back in the hotel, I can honestly say it was one of the worst pizza's I've ever had. It was closer to eating cornmeal lasagna than any pizza. It had sickly sweet sauce, and even after an hour the crust was still undercooked.

I'd complain to the restaurant management, but I'm sure all I'd get is an "are you talkin? to me?"

Trust me when I tell you to avoid this tourist trap at all costs. It?s a HUGE rip off!

Chicago's best deep dish – What's not to like about delicious deep dish pizza [unless you don't like grease!]

Try it with mushrooms and extra cheese! Yum!

I also like cheesecake for dessert. If you visit Chicago, you gotta check out Ginos!

Great pizza, but i prefer the thin – These guys know pizza. While I'm not a fan of the deep dish anywhere (other than the funky version at Chicago Pizza Co), I do enjoy good thin crust. This is thicker than many thins, but still delish. I had a spinach pizza and it rocked.
