    I like pizza with chili peepers and chorizo sausage. Wash it down with Dos XX Cerveza. :eat:

    Not sure if they are still there but Edwardo's was amazing back in the day just down the street from the Sears tower. It's probably been 25 years since I was last there.

    Don’t know about Edwardo’s but it’s now the Willis Tower. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Willis_Tower

    I grew up in Western NY and I have been to Detroit. I never heard of Detroit style pizza until a couple of months ago, (I'm 52). My brother and I saw this place in Austin called Via 313 Pizzeria. It was really good, I mean up there in best pizza.

    Lou's throw's a mean sausage at you, just remember to buy the butter crust deep.

    Pequod's is right up there too. I'm not a fan of Giordorno's but many are. For a remarkable thin pizza try Pie-Eyed Pizzeria 1111 W Chicago. They open till late on weekends and even sell slices. My Pie has a good deep dish at North & Damen.

    To tell you the truth its much harder to find a bad pizza then a good one in Chicago. Thats why its the pizza capitol of the world. What part of the city are you going to be in?

    All in all I'd have to go with Pequad's but I can only get Lou's to deliver.

    Chicago pizza is so overrated. Bills pizza, Randleman road, Greensboro N.C, done deal. Thin crust, toppings piled high and fresh, and ice cold beer.

    LOL! I was kind of bowled over when I was in Chicago last December and I was corrected when I called it Sear’s Tower. Oh well . . .

    Worked there for a while, so I'm biased.

    Sounds like Rosemont. Always a 40 minute wait.
    Just a few blocks north is a Gino's.

    Of the few I've tried, Giordanos was very good....[I try to stop by when visiting my son at school in South bend]

    Be ready to sit there....... it takes awhile.

    But there is a place in the SF Bay Area; Zachary's....that might beat them at their own game.

    I had a really, really good deep dish in eastern West Virginia. It's not exactly classified.

    I'm talking about the source of the ingredients that make up the pizza. Lunchroom pizza is made with sauce that comes out of a huge can from one of the industrial kitchen suppliers, and the veggies arrive at the kitchen pre-cut, and the sausage is by a processor that grinds meat into huge rolling tubs. That's lunchroom pizza no matter what style it is.

    Unlike NY style pizza (thin sauce and oily cheese on cardboard) Chicago style pizza actually comes in a plethora of versions to meet every taste. I'd hit Pequod's for a pan pizza. Connie's (hearth and forge, lol) used to have the best "stuffed" but I haven't had it in several years. Lou's is good with the butter crust, but that's more like a pie crust. Giordano's is fine. Gino's is a landmark but I could do without their manhole of sausage... though that's some people favorite thing. Uno's and Duo's are good too. It really depends on what you like. There is not one "best" place for Chicago style pizza. You need to try several and pick the one(s) you like.
