    Best Chicago Pizza?

    I am heading to Chicago tomorrow and I have had Giordano's and Uno's. Of those two I like Giordano's the best. But my question to everyone what is the best Chicago Pizza?

    Hmmm. Old Chicago because of their name.

    Go to Giordanos.

    Try Gino's East and Lou Malnati's. Then you have at least hit the major Chicago style pizza staples!

    Absolutely, Gino's East. The original one just east of Michigan Avenue. I think it is on Superior. Cornmeal crust is fantastic.

    I prefer Uno's. The pizza and atmosphere are top notch.

    Re: Best Chicago Pizza?

    I think that Giordano's is pretty good. I have not ate at Gino's East or any other Chicago pizza place. So based off of that my vote is Giordano's.

    Gino's East. End of discussion. Mods, you can close the thread now because the correct answer is in here at least three times.

    Re: Best Chicago Pizza?

    Yeah, Gino's and Lou's would be the next two to hit. At least for true Chicago Style.

    If you end up in the Burbs and just want to try a great pizza, In Buffalo Grove there is a place Called Nino's. Their Thick crust pizza is probably one of the best pizza's I've ever had. One of the few thick crusts that doesn't get soggy.

    I was in Chicago two years ago and wanted to experience true Chicago style pizza. My friend took me to Gino's East and it was great. I definitely recommend it

    Excessive intake of alcohol, we all know, kills brain cells, but naturally it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers.
