With a second location now open on Milwaukee in Avondale, this popular Dante's Inferno themed chain is Logan Square's go-to choice for grabbing a slice of pie. The whole pizzas at Dante's come in one size (gigantic), and two very hungry people would have trouble polishing one off. Order a slice and wait below a mural of Satan happily gobbling pizza while your huge New York style slices are crisped up in the oven to order. A daily special is hand-written on the wall next to the register, and is available in addition to the usual selection of pizzaria slices. We're partial to the pepperoni, scattered with huge, thin slices of the spicy salami and perfect for folding in half, the way pizza this big is meant to be eaten.

Dante's is a great place to stop by for a slice of pizza, but, for me at least, is by no means a favorite. The pizza is passable and fine for the way home or a pit spot with friends. As a metal head, the best part is the giant pentagram on the wall.

You can get deep dish when your parents come to visit, but when you just need a good slice to thin crust pizza, few places in Chicago make a better pie than Dante's. It's greasy, folds easily and you won't want to throw away the crust—all characteristics of great 'za.
