I've gone past this place a thousand times and have always wanted to try it...well I finally did and am pleased about it. I ordered a classic Chicago-style deep dish pizza(with extra sauce because I enjoy things saucy) and loved every bite! The crust  was buttery and tasty and the sauce was really good. The cheese was not overwhelming which really impressed me; often times Chicago style can be greasy and goopy. I intended on saving some for leftovers but I found myself unable to resist and devoured the entire pizza in one sitting! My only complaint was was almost $30 for a pizza...a bit steep for my pockets. So perhaps next time I will have to get a smaller size or go with a friend.


We ordered delivery last night after having seen it on Chicago's Best. Given that we watched people on tv going gaga over the pizza, maybe our expectations were a little too high. It wasn't the worst pizza I have ever had by far, but with so many pizza options in the city, you have got to be crème de la crème and for me, this wasn't it.

We went thin crust. The crust was okay. For me, it was overly salty. I'm thinking that came from the sausage, but either way, it was much too much salt for me and the sauce left a lot to be desired. I wished the sauce was a bit more on the sweeter side. I think that would have cut the salt a little and given the pizza an overall flavor that could have set it apart from all of the competition.

Again, not bad pizza, just not my fave I'm sorry to say!
