What puts the Big in Big Bricks, the sibling of Lincoln Park’s subterranean pizza institution? First, a spacious upstairs. Second, an expanded menu, which tacks barbecue (baby backs, pulled pork, etc.) onto the pizza offerings. Aside from the juicy chicken tinged pink with smoke, the ’cue’s merely a distraction from the signature offering: thin, square-cut pies like the Painful, which is topped with spicy pepperoni and jalapeño. (Tip: Order it “extra crispy.”) The last way this place went big: the commendable craft-beer selection.

Great pizza, beer, cocktails, and cake! Cozy, well located across the street from Goldies bar and kitty-corner from Martyrs in North Center. This makes it an ideal place to stop in for a good meal and a few beers or well-made cocktails before going to a show across the street. The barbecue choices are all good, but the best deal is their variety of pizzas. They are all delicious, and you get a lot for the price.
