    Not quite Zachary's. A bit less of the chunky tomato sauce and slightly saltier crust. They do provide honey for the crusts, though, nice touch

    Chicago style pizza in Palo Alto! try a deep dish "favorite" and don't forget to have fun with a honey-bear and your crust!

    As someone from Chicago,every place that claims to serve Chicago style pizza is horrible. They usually just make thick bread pizza... Patxi is the real deal. Thin crust and lots of cheese!

    Servers are really friendly (great smiles!) artichoke dips for starter and their Chicago style pizza is top notch.

    The deep dish pizza here is amazing, love love love. The crust is crunchy and crisp on the outside, soft on the inside and cooked through. And thick melted cheese goodness on the inside.

    Deep dish... So good

    Spencer Wise · August 6, 2014
  • Matthew G.

    the pizza here is really good. I love the fact that they serve deep dish pies here, and the crusts are crisp on the outside, soft and slightly doughy but cooked through on the inside. Great pies

    Bring a coat, the AC is cranked up way too high. Also be prepared to talk loudly over the music even when the place is empty.

    Now THAT's a pizza! BBQ Chicken with jalapeños and smoked bacon.

    Watch your pizzas. they thaw take 45 minutes. they gave ours to another party. Free pizza doesnt make the vlock stop. Too bad . Good start... Nice bar lady, nice server, chaos in the kitchen. Fail.

    You can ask to get whole wheat dough for the pizza if you want to make it slightly healthier

    I've never been to Chicago but these pizzas are pretty damn good. There can be a bit of a wait in the evening though.

    Not as good as Zacharu's in Berkeley but if you like Chicago style pies and ate not in a hurry, you will leave satiated!

    Great pie-style pizza. But make yourself a favour: if you are 2 take the small one and share it. #heavyshit

    The deep dish is good but these guys rip you off if you want to split your pizza with different toppings. They charge you the full price of one pizza even if it's on only half, even on thin crust
