    Literally the worst service I have ever experienced.
  • Ryan W.
    terrible service. you would think that for not pizza they would try harder to actually keep their customers.

    I had lunch special(affordable price😍), it was tasty! wasnt salty and dough was crusty. waited 25 minutes till it comes out but it was worth it.(deep dish takes some time to cook..)
  • Louis B.
    If you like cheese, get extra cheese as the normal amount is a bit small. But fantastic pizza otherwise. Great crust!
  • Juan R.
    BETTER THAN PIZANO'S. DONT LISTEN TO GAYLE KING!!!

    Waited 40 minutes for the pizza to cook but stacks up with the greats of deep dish in Chicago. Can get pitchers of beer which only adds to the convivial atmosphere this spot holds within.

    Pizza to die for! Try one with meatballs and ricotta cheese. Quickly became my fav deep dish pizza in Chicago.

    Pequod's pies are of the pan variety, a deep doughy pizza that includes an addictive and lauded crispy caramelized crust made from baking cheese on the outside to give it a look that may appear burnt. Read more

    The place was packed but they got our party of 6 in pretty fast. Expect to wait a while for your pie but it's totally work the wait.

    Problem with Pequod's is that as popular as it is, they haven't figured out how to manage the pick-up process. I had observed others losing their pizza pickups to others and then it happened to me.

    Get an appetizer because the deep dish takes 40 mins!

    This pizza is homemade and the ingredients are yummy and not cheap. The balance of sauce to cheese to crust is exactly right.

    The best deep dish pizza in Chicago, more known by locals and where you want to come to experience the real thing. Sausage, Green peppers, onions, mushrooms with caramelized crust = heaven.

    Truly enjoyed the pizza, coming from Miami , it made me feel like I wasn't a tourist. Pizza crust is king here. Worth the trip, only thing that sucks is parking.

    Hands down best deep dish pizza I've tried and only one I'd recommend. The small or medium is more than plenty for two. Try it with the housemade fennel sausage.

    Amazing pizza!! The Deep dish crust is unreal! So many toppings to choose from! Be prepared to wait a long time for a table and 45 mins for the pizza.
  • Bon Appetit Magazine
    Our favorite version is topped with big hunks of fennel-flecked sausage and hot specks of giardiniera, but c’mon: It’s a casserole of melty cheese; it can do no wrong. Read more

    The crust has the consistency of a fluffy biscuit + caramelized, the tomato sauce is light and sweet (not salty), get ready

    Their deep dish is crunchy on the outside, soft on the inside. It was not my favourite compared to the other 2 pizza places we toured, but it was good. It's more like a focaccia than a pizza.

    Come on dude. It's all about the deep dish, originally created by Bert Kaz who only very recently closed his eponymous restaurant Burt's Place in Morton Grove due to health concerns. Chicago's best!
