The pizza isn't terrible – The more you drink the better the pizza is. Isn?t not terrible, but in Chicago there are better choices of pizza places. Ex. Lou Malnati?s
This colorful spot dishes out great stuffed pizza and pasta to local noshers. – In Short
Located along a quiet stretch of storefronts, this inexpensive joint quickly fills with families and groups. Colorful, innovative cut-outs separate the dining room from the kitchen, while emblazoned touches like "dudes" and "divas" on restroom doors finish the look. Stuffed pizza is the specialty: They're about an inch-and-a-half thick and topped with tangy, spicy tomato sauce. Pasta dishes are popular, too, as are the sandwiches, salads, burgers and ribs.
Best Stuffed Pie, PERIOD – Why Chicago's Pizza isn't more renowned for it's pies I will never understand. Their stuffed pies are virtually perfect, at least for my preferences.
Start with the crust, flaky but still solid with a little cheese built into the base of the outer crust.
Then the sauce is tangy with a spicy undercurrent, absolutely perfect.
Ingredients are generously portioned, with vegetables not being cut too big.
Finally, the overlooked element, cheese. Unlike the bland cheese they use at most places, Chicago's cheese is saltier with a texture that snaps. This brings out the flavors of the other ingredients even better.
Add to all that their excellent prices and the fact that they deliver very late, and it all equals the ideal pizza spot, especially for delivery.
