    Great deep dish pizza, friendly service and nice casual atmosphere. Will take you more than an hour before you get food and a table.

    If you're into meat, go with the Meaty Legend Deep Dish Pizza. It's damn good! 🍕🍕

    Justin Breton · March 27
  • Andreas K.

    Can't beat the original deep dish pizza. A small pie can be split on 2 ppl with a salad. Try the Broken English IPA!

    Great touristy place. Pretty great deep dish!

    This place is a must while visiting Chicago! Do the deep dish. Two slices will be plenty, especially if you had salad (Caesar is great), or appetizer. Everyone takes home extra.

    Try the new soft pretzel appetizer. The menu says Pretzel Bites, but they replaced those with a piping hot, buttery, soft pretzel... Yum.

    Merrill O'Ryan · September 18, 2014
  • Peter M.

    Write your name on the walls and share a pitcher while you wait for delicious deep dish.

    My favorite Chicago pizza, hands down. The sausage patty pizza it's the only way to fly.

    Kevin Dudley · August 26, 2014
  • Evan C.

    Make sure to bring a sharpy and leave a note on the wall. They also have a rooftop. Pizza takes a enjoy your time there. The deep dish is worth the wait!

    After a deep investigation this is definetly the best deep dish pizza from Chicago better than giordanos or uno!You should try half meaty legend and chicago fire!If you want and appetizer the salmon

    Walk in front door. Go down steps. Look for exit. Go through it. Call cab. Go to Bucinos. Much better.

    Jeff Yaniga · August 4, 2014
  • Patrick G.

    Ask for Kevin despite the post from circa 2011. Food was great. Service was great. Get the nachos they are the effing bomb. Pizza does not need an adjective... It's awesome.

    Chicago deep dish is not really pizza.....real pizza connoisseurs know New Haven style pizza is in a league of its own.

    Impressive beer selection, great service and killer deep dish!

    Carla Jimenez · May 24, 2014

    Get the spinach mozzarella sticks while you wait for the deep dish!

    Stuti Agrawal · April 21, 2014
  • Jeff W.

    Not busy at lunch but also not the best in town so we've been told. Order ahead on the phone then sit down.

    Jeff Weinstein · March 26, 2014
  • Mike T.

    Hey dumbasses complaining about the wait! It's Chicago style pizza! It doesn't cook in 20 minutes like your DiGiorno does!

    Mike Tango · February 11, 2014
  • Joe T.

    Try the BBQ Brisket Sliders - 3 chopped barbeque brisket sliders with fresh pickle cucumbers, crispy onion on brioche buns

    Joe Trutin · November 20, 2013
  • Florian G.

    Try the spinach sticks, skip the pizza!!

    Florian Grashäftl · November 4, 2013

    Great food but the service is pretty bad. Friendly but they forget everything you ask for and rarely check back.

    John Bissell · October 6, 2013
  • Laurie C.

    I was looking for authentic Chicago deep-dish pizza, and they definitely have it here. The only con is that the crust is a little heavy. It's a pie crust or something.

    Laurie Clotworthy · September 17, 2013
  • Laura C.

    While waiting for this amazing pizza, run across the street and grab an Als Italian beef sandwich as an appetizer. :)

    Laura Carson · September 8, 2013
  • William S.

    If your conflicted about what type of deep dish you want don't worry cause you can get a half n half. DD Pizzas take 45-60 min to prep also so grab an appetizer and some drinks. Staff is awesome!!

    William Stanton · September 2, 2013
  • Lorraine W.

    Get the spinach mozzarella sticks and sneak some veggies into them....

    Lorraine Wronski · August 22, 2013

    Delicious deep dish in a cool atmosphere. Deep dish takes about an hour so be prepared, also don't eat with your eyes - a small is more than enough for two people.
