    Love the pizza! We just moved to Chicago from upstate NY and were worried we wouldn't be able to find good thin crust pizza. This place nailed it. Better than most places back home. Pizza's are HUGE!

    Grab a slice of the boiler room for a little sweat on your upper lip, or pepperoni for a greasy delight. Cash only but if you use their atm, you get a free shot of Jamie. Also the pb&j deal is now $10

    Great thin crust pizza, boozy ice cream! Get the PB&J, shot of Jameson, PBR, and a slice. Now have a back patio area too (much needed space). Cash only, but if you use the atm get a shot with receipt.

    The house special is the PB&J. That's a Pabst tall can, a shot of Jameson, and a slice of 'za. That's $10. Used to be less. Cash only, but there's an ATM that dispenses Jameson.
