My wife, son, and I recently made a trip to the South of Chicago Pizza and Beef on Virginia Avenue, just southeast of downtown Indianapolis. Upon entering, I was a little surprised by the atmosphere -- I don't know what I expected, but what a got looked like a fairly dark sports bar, with TV screens and sports memorabilia all... More

Excellent Italian Beef Sandwich just as good as I remembered from trips to Chicago. They also have a lunchtime special that changes each day. Only downfall no already made Sweet Tea.

We were all really pleased with the pizza. We got 3 large pizza's. One Chicago supreme, 1 pepperoni and onion, and 1 Italian beef. We loved the Italian... More

OK, OK Union Jack's is very close. Besides excellent deep dish (cheesy, tasty crust) pizza, the Italian sandwich is a must! Tender slices of beef cooked with oregano and served with a cup of broth for dipping. The weekday lunch is a great deal ($9) but you better be hungry!

NOT !!!!! Our visit was a little better than the second visit.....BUT.... On arrival there was a person in front of the restaurant smoking....turns out he was our waiter........and certainly not attired for the position. Pretty pricey for a large pizza...$26.00 considering the amount of ingredients on it. Also reduced rating a point because they put gratuity suggestions on their... More

We were at a local brewery that allows food to be delivered, so we did a quick Google search and decided to order some South of Chicago Pizza. We ordered one 18" thin crust for our group through their website (which we later found out is an outsourced online ordering company). It was $28 after adding a few toppings to... More

Surprisingly good deep dish outside Chicago. As a Chicago transplant, I'm used to the best, and this actually satisfies my deep dish craving. I've had one or two hitches with the service, but otherwise, it's hard to complain about the pizza. Reasonably priced for the amount of food, and living down the block makes it quite dangerous. If you're looking... More

My husband and I seated ourselves as there was no one around. After about 15 minutes we finally saw someone who worked there. I had to chase him down to ask about menus and ordering. He told me they were closing and only could take a takeout order. Since we were not heading home or somewhere else where we could... More

While at Indianapolis, during Bands of America Competition we had dinner at South of Chicago Pizza and Beef not once but twice! Their Italian beef was awesome. If you are from Chicago and looking for some beef and pizza (including) deep dish then I recommend this hole in the wall. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Happy eating!

Let me start by saying that I had heard great things about this place. My wife and I visited on a Thursday night. The place was about 1/3rd full.
