Just back from Chicago and immediately starting jonesing for something close to Giordanos. Rance's crust is perfect but the tomato sauce isn't as thick. Flavor was great.

It is named appropriately. If you're not sure what to order on your first visit, I'd recommend the "Best Seller"! This visit was our 3rd visit and our first pickup order. If you're picking up to take home, I'd recommend the take and bake option....More

Real deal Chicago style pizza in three styles: Stuffed, Pan & Thin. Family owned and operated. We use the highest quality ingredients possible in our house made dough, sauce, and signature salad dressings. Craft beer on tap and wine to enjoy while your pizza pie cooks. Just like Chicago, our Stuffed and Pan pies take about 45 minutes so bring some friends to help you pass the time or call ahead.
