Contrary to most of the country’s opinion, Chicago does not exist on deep-dish alone. The other kind is “bar pizza,” a pie with cracker-thin crust topped with bubbled, almost crispy, cheese that’s square-cut rather than pie-cut. Since 1940, this liquor store/bar/restaurant has been serving quite a tasty version. Sausage is the preferred topping among the dudes sucking down beers at the bar, and we agree that the fennel-seed-flecked Italian sausage is great. But you’ll be disappointed by the rest of the menu—deep-fried stuff and iceberg lettuce galore—so stick with the signature pizza.

The staff at Marie's are like family. For 76 years, the place has provided generations of Chicagoans with sweet, sweet food comas. We all grew up loving this place. It is not retro, it's really still the 70's in there! Become a regular, instead of wasting your money in souless corporate joints with fake nostalgia and memorabilia.


This pizza hasn't in the 45 years I have been going there. Best thin crust around. The liquor store is also a nice touch.


I have been going to Marie's Pizza since 1963. It is a local favorite that has become legendary for it's pizza, service and atmosphere. Enjoy this remarkable thin pizza with a selection from the many wines in the attached liquor store. Or have a cocktail from the full service bar. You can have it the way you want, a quiet, personal table for a romantic meal or sit near one of the large screen TVs if interested in 'the' game or enjoy some great live jazz. But it's the food that keeps people coming back for more. Don't miss out on the experience that will make you a regular...
