We have been to Chicago many times but never tried the deep dish. We picked this place because of the reviews and location. The pizza itself was pretty good but not our thing and a 45 minute wait was a long time (to be fair, they tell you that). Just not for us I guess. Service was a little spotty.... More

We loved the deep dish pizza here, the crust is different and very very good. The service was excellent as well.

good: ? where to start: a factory in a facotry setting.. The pizza was : served wrong (kitchen or wait staff don't care: my wife left hungry because she is a vegeterian and due to this error had insufficient pizza to eat) the sauce was sweet: did someone win the sugar lottery here? where's the cheese? The "all-in" salad was"meh"...so... More

After being let down by Giordano's in September, I came down to this establishment with a party of 10 in November. When we initially arrived, only 5 of us made it and we were waiting for the other 5. We told the front staff that we were looking for a table for 10 and when the lady realized that not... More

Had dinner here this past weekend while in Chicago, I called and was told that while they don't take reservations, they don't get busy until around 7pm. We arrived at 4:30pm and still had about a 45 minute wait. We were seated in a booth that was very tall and uncomfortable, and my wife and I are not that short.... More

We visited this place after seeing it on Man Vs Food and as we had to have pizza while in Chicago this seemed like the place to go. We were told the deep pan pizza takes a while to cook which was just a good excuse for us both to have starters. The pizzas were so big we had them... More

We stopped in since this was a block away from our hotel, and I'm very glad that we did! Our waiter warned us that it takes 45 minutes for the deep dish pizzas to be made, so if you are starving when you arrive order some appetizers to hold you over! It is well worth the wait, the pizza was... More

I don't know it anybody knows how many layers of graffiti are on the walls of this three-story restaurant. What I do know is that the pizza is great and the service superb.

Very unusual venue with regards the deco. Graffiti type walls and dark and "punk" looking. Visited here after reading reviews and claims about the quality of the deep dish pizza. Little shocked at the price -$20 for a 4 slice pizza ?!? Maybe as I'm not that "into"pizza made me feel a little uncomfortable at the price. However it was... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Magnificent Mile
Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent Mile. This area between Oak Avenue and the Chicago River is more a shopping paradise than a full-out neighborhood. For prime upscale shopping, this is the place to go. It’s busy, energetic, and packed with shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale. Some of the city’s most iconic buildings like the Wrigley Building, John Hancock Center and other architectural marvels define the magnificence of this neighborhood.
