Time Out says
With exposed brick and plasma-screen TVs, Pequod's is firmly a neighborhood bar. But Pequod's is a bar that serves some of the best pizza in the city. The signature pan pizza is ringed with caramelized cheese, and slices are massive—one piece makes a meal. Add veggies to lighten it up a bit, or go all in, with the sausage pie, dotted with perfectly spiced, Ping-Pong ball–size pieces of seasoned ground pork.

Pequod's is great pizza, but their recipe came from Burt Katz, formerly of Burt's Place. He also was the originator of the deep dish at Gulliver's, somehow missing from this list. For my deep dish $$, Burt's is the place.
Being a Southsider I was a newbie checking out Pequod's pizza and I must admit it does indeed live up to the hype! The decorum is fun but the deep dish pizza is absolutely delicious crust, sauce and toppings! Yes, yes and yes!
If you've ever got friends in Chicago who want to try deep dish, take them to Pequod's. It's covered floor to ceiling in Chicago sports gear and the pizza is incredible--it almost feels like an SNL sketch it's so Chicago.
Pequods is my favorite deep dish spot. I am a sauce person and i love how they put the sauce on top of the cheese. Every time i have friends in town, this is definitely a stop in the tour.
This is one of my favorite spots for Chicago Pizza. The crust of caramelized cheese, the melting cheese when the waiter serves this pie, makes your mouth water. This is a place you can come with friends or family. It has a sport bar feeling, clearly home of hawk fans. They have an upstairs area that allows you to host birthday parties, bridal showers, or any kind of party. The price point is fair and the drinks are plenty. The staff is friendly and attentive. No reservations are accepted. If you go on a Friday or Saturday night you might find yourself waiting an hour or so. They do allow you to place your order while you wait so that by the time you get seated your pizza is soon to arrive. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a new place to try.
Hands down this is the best pizza in Chicago. So many people will recommend other chains, but trust me this is the place you want to be. The crust is buttery and caramelized which is what sets this pizza apart. This place is always crowded with an insane wait on weekends if you don't show up early. If you can come here on a Monday or Tuesday when the weekend crowd isn't taking it over.
If I have to eat deep dish pizza, you better believe that's its gonna be Pequod's. This Lincoln Park pizza parlor is no-frills, but the pan pizza they serves (which features the all-important caramelized cheese crust) is like something from another world. There's usually a line to get inside and you'll have to wait at least half an hour for your pie to come out of the oven, but when you take your first bite, you'll forget the preceding ordeal.
