Giordano's: "For The Best Chicago Style Pizza" Giordano's Tip by TRimer
Giordano's, Chicago: 31 reviews and 44 photos
While the tourists flock to Pizza Uno and Due, Chicagoans go to Giordano's when craving great Chicago style (deep dish or stuffed) pizza. Their pizza was voted "Reader's Choice" by the Chicago Tribune, "Best Pizza in America" by the Today Show and has won the Food Industry News "Silver Platter Award" for the past 10 years.
Favorite Dish: Ok. I admit it. I prefer New York style pizza to Chicago style. With that said, having lived in this town for almost a decade, I can say that I have sampled a few pizzas. Chicago pizza tends to fall into 2 categories- "thin crust" which is a flat, almost cracker like base with tomato sauce, some cheese and lots of toppings (everything from sausage to pineapple) and "deep dish" or "stuffed" which is a wonderful cheesy, tomato combination with either spinach (my preference) or some sort of meat. Strangely, the thin crusty is cut in squares while the deep dish/stuffed is served as slices.
Giordano's pizza has a sweet, bread-like crust and they serve their slices with just the right proportion of cheese to other stuffing. Just remember- the deep dish/stuffed pizza takes about 30-45 minutes to bake.
