    The chicago red hot has all the right fixins. And even though it feels like it shouldn't, the brisket burger works.

    I love their deep dish with spinach and mushrooms, so good. One of the better pizza options in the San Mateo area for sure.

    Deep dish pizza in the bay. Stop by and grab a cold beer and order the deep dish pizza, no other way to go. As close to Chicago as you'll get in the bay.

    Although I enjoyed the italian beef, I can't say I was very happy with the 'chips' it came with. Overall, the place is a hodge podge of crooked frames with tacky pictures and a bad smell at the bar.

    Get the deep dish. That is what they have unless you request thin. The crust is amazing. their bbq is awesome. The brisket is worth the drive.

    Amazing beef brisket. Great sauce. BBQ beans very very tasty. French fries... Not so much.

    Make sure at some point you try "The Refrigerator" and get it with the stuffed crust, extra garlic.

    can't go wrong with Chicago deep dish meat lovers pizza, pork spareribs (fall off the bone good) or the brisket - extra (hot) bbq sauce on the side!! The Classic Chicago Dog is amazing!!

    Ask for the "Hot Redhead" and they put the sauce on top.

    Italian Beef is the actual only reason I come here. The rest is good and made with love but the beef sammich with hot giardiara is the way to go.

    Buy a pitcher of soda and it comes with a refill. Helps you limit the amount of pitchers you have to get going if you are with a work.
