You may have a small problem. This is a world wide forum, not just Chicago

Yeah ... But Chicago is all that matters when you're talking about PIZZA

"And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music."

I'm not sayin', I'm just sayin'.

Geno's East.  Giordano's is a fake.

I've been in this city for 20 years and I still can't stomach deep dish/Chicago style.

 

All that grease...

 

I'm a thin-crust girl.

I had a Giordano's 5 blocks from my house when I lived in Chicagoland. The thick deep dish pizza was heavy as you say ChicagoTerry. 

I'll never forget how they put a sausage "plate"  (an actual flat plate of sausage the diameter of the pizza) under the sauce on their deep dish.

Grew up in Chicago area and even worked for Giordano's in OBT 30 some odd years ago. Wasn't a bad concept back then but after a recent vacation there in August, we'll probably never eat there again. Pizza tasted and looked as appealing as a frozen pie from the grocery store and more "Red Baron" in every respect.  Service was nonexistant and I was rather embarrassed to take our teen age daughter there for her first visit. She's had Chicago deep dish/ stuffed and liked it but she said it was disgusting.

 

If in Chicago ever again, it's Lou Malnatti's, Gino's East or Pizzeria Uno and we'll skip the rest.

@ Chefross, I believe it's not Giordano's but Gino's East which does that sausage plate. Just ordered a sausage pizza from them last weekend (stuffed) and it was small pieces not a single layer.

I myself was born and raised in Chi-town and now a forty-something year old, still enjoy Giordano's. The top of the list is Chicago Pizza and oven grinder, though.
