If I were a tourist visiting the city of Chicago, one of the thing that I would be attracted to instantly is the scenery of the downtown area at night. However, being that I’m a resident of the city, I know that one of the things that Chicago is famous for is its Pizzeria. While there are many good pizza places to visit in the city, these are the ones that come highly recommend.
The Original Gino’s East:
This is probably one of the best restaurants to go if you are interested in deep dish pizza. The crust is thick and the cheese and sauce are both to die for. This River North location seats about 500 people but that doesn’t discourage its faithful patrons from coming back. The environment is casual but the taste of the pizza is everything but casual. If you choose to do so, you can also call ahead to have a frozen pizza prepared that you can take home with you. Gino’s also has a location in Northwest Indiana for residents who live in the suburban areas of Chicago. The average cost for the main course is reasonable at $20 so you will be able to enjoy a good meal without having to worry about breaking the bank.
This pizza spot is located in the downtown area a the intersection of Wabash and Ohio street in the downtown area of Chicago. Uno’s has been around since 1943 and is known for its both it’s deep-dish and thin-style pizza. If you are in hurry for lunch, they Priority Lunches that offer more than just pizza but also options such as baked chicken, broccoli and sirloin tips. If happen not to be in the mood for pizza, Uno’s also serves a variety of burgers, sandwiches and pastas.
Edwardo’s Natural Pizza:
Edwardo’s is located on the south side of the city near the University of Chicago and has been around since 1978. Edwardo’s is not only known for its stuffed pizzas but also for its calzones as well. In addition to pizza, Edwardo’s also offers pastas, sandwiches and salads as well. The atmosphere is family-oriented and the staff receives rave reviews as well and they go the extra mile to help families celebrate special events.
While these pizza places come highly recommended by restaurant critics, it would be hard to imagine going wrong with these selections or any other pizzeria restaurants in Chicago; where you will always come in hungry and leave out happy.
