I went there to meet family and sat inside. Based on the reviews I read, we planned to order right away so the pizza could start cooking. This strategy worked! Yes, it took 45 minutes to cook it, but after you receive it, you'll see why. It's AWESOME. It is a delicious pizza and the service was very very good. I normally am a thin crust eater, but because it's Giordano's I went all in and got the deep dish stuffed pizza with 2 toppings. I only had one piece and a very good small house salad that had a delicious dressing. We will definitely return. They also had a nice simple but quieter patio outside for those who don't like the din of the crowd.
