    Not to bad of a place. I think I still prefer Lou Malnati's Pizzeria for a better flaky crust

    If you're in a hurry remember to order beforehand, cause it's gonna take a while for the deep dish to be baked. We had BBQ Brisket and I'm gonna give it 70 out of 100.

    Beer and wine list too small to read. Ask your server for recommendations.

    We've been here for 20 minutes and ordered a Sprite and a water and have not gotten them yet. Beware, kitchen closes at 10p even though they close at 11p.

    Don't try and redeem your loyalty (3rd checkin) beer while using a groupon. They don't allow you to use it so its a waste. Also the bloody Mary's are aweful.
