    Stuffed meat pie is fantastic. Mozzarella sticks, spinach artichoke bread for sides. Italian beef: with mozzarella, hot peppers, dipped. You will not be sorry. Favorite place in SD for a Chicago fix.

    You know what? The thin crust isn't half bad (I usually go deep dish)

    Went thin crust this time. Love it as much as the deep dish. Also, there's a back patio now!

    If you're ever feeling nostalgic of the chi, go here. They stayed true to the chicago dog, and being able to get deep dish slices for $3 is a good freaking deal.

    The deep dish is the best but it takes a while to cook so be sure to order ahead. The kids love playing with the toys and books.

    Not true deep dish in that they do not spend an hour cooking it and this isn't Chicago. However, they still take 35 minutes which gives them time to make a pretty respectable pie.

    Pros: Wow - deep dish pizza is so delicious. Gluten-free crusts available. Cons: No HD TVs so no good for football.

    Great combo of a slice of deep dish, salad, and drink for a less than $10. Note: slice is of their regular pizzas not specials. Specials are extra.

    Don't bring a big party without calling ahead, the host guy that looks like joe dirt will be a bitch about it (apparently they don't like spontaneous large checks).

    Order ahead for pizza. The sandwiches don't need much time to prep. Great food and reasonably priced!

    The Loaded Fries - topped with cheddar or blue cheese, along with bacon, sour-cream, and scallions - are super tasty!

    Family friendly. Has a child's seating area with books and toys. They will also child cut your slice if you request it. Great place!

    Want some authentic Chicago deep dish? Lefty’s is the place to go for your thick crust fix, or why not try a meatball sub? Grab a beer as well, they have an incredible selection of craft brews.
