It is thin(ner) than their regular though. The pizza was ok...the service was poor. The cook brought the pizza out. Server was outside smoking. Didn't even know we had already received our pizza. The beer was cold and I would've liked another if she would've come back. The manager and her male friend were watching the Black Hawks game and... More

Pizza was so great, wonderful thick or thick crust, lots of cheese and great sauce. Friendly quick service, especially for pizza and good prices. My only complaint was it is very noisy in the restaurant so if you are trying to have a conversation at a large table it's very difficult. Wish I could eat this again soon, next time... More

My wife and I love Old Chicago for pizza... Great crust, lots of cheese, and VERY FRIENDLY STAFF!!! Our last server made my grandson feel like a king and even brought the store manager over to meet him. More craft beer than you can imagine. Always a great time. Who wants to go with me???

Near the mall and near our hotel, the La Quinta. They offer thin and thick crust pizzas. Since we were going to Chicago, IL next we thought we would save the deep dish for there so we ordered thin crust. We went to the restaurant and ordered a to go pizza. We ordered pepperoni and cheese with olives on half.... More

We visited Old Chicago today for their lunch buffet and it was really good. They had about 5 kinds of pizza, garlic bread with dipping sauce, and a couple of other items. At the time we were there the pizza was very hot and the variety of choices would please most people. It also came with salad or soup and... More

Pretty good pizza and a very good variety of crust and topping types. Weekday lunches they have a pizza bar where they have 5 or 6 pizzas out and you can get as much of any kind of pizza that you want. TIP, of you want a special pizza made, like pepperoni and bacon ask them as soon as you... More

Been to other Old Chicago locations throughout Illinois and Iowa. Usually just the same old routine and attitudes. Gave into family pressures and had lunch at the Mall location. The hostess was friendly and greeted everyone like with a smile and seated quickly. Our server was excellent. She immediately took our drink orders and then our meals selection. Very friendly...

Stopped in for late dinner based on other reviews. Was not disappointed. Easy to park our large RV. Great thin pizza and flight of craft draft beers. Many many from which to choose. And all evening great classic tunes. Very pleased with this place. Only negative is that the kids were not thrilled with the deep dish they ordered.
