    Well, to try to keep it relatively close to you:
    Thin:Bob and Jack's 104th and South Ewing (right by the skyway).
    Stuffed: Nancy's--various locations
    Deep Dish/Pan:Uno's or Due's
    Thin: Nick and Vito's
    Any Style: Palermo's on 63rd (only)(right by Midway )
    Any Style: Beggar's with locations thru-out the southern 'burbs.
    Stuffed: Durbin's Pizza (on 79th Street)
    Thin: Fox's ( on Western Ave.)



    I like Pete's on Western deep or thin.

      "Best Pizza, Hands down HOME RUN INN on 31st"

      You got it, sir (or maam). When I lived in San Diego and now Charlotte, I have to get it frozen, and it still is better than any pizza joint I can find. I remember going to their original joint on 31st when I was a kid.

      If you like Uno's pizza, you might want to stock up the freezer. They have a 5 million dollar payment due shortly on a huge debt, and if they can't come up with it or whine for a delay, may have to go BK.

          Best Thick - Burts - Morton Grove

          Best Coal Fired thin crust - Coalfire

          As a Chicagoan I do not like pan/deep dish/stuffed pizza, and suffer through Giordano's with out of town guests on occasion, terrible, chain pizza.

            It's a little far from Chicago (about 75 miles), but has anybody ever been to Bianchi's in Ottawa, IL?
            I've grown up on the pizza from Bianchi's, and it would probably be my last meal if I had to choose one! The pizza is somewhat-thin crusted, garlicky, and just greasy enough! Definitely beyond delicious!

              Disagree on Giordano's. It's the best stuffed pizza in Chicago, IMO.

                thats cool, different people have different tastes.

                When I have out of town guests, they all want to go to Giordano's, since that what they have seen on t.v., so I take them, and keep my mouth shut. Most come away disappointed. On there next trips in they let me take them somewhere else, someplace that isnt a chain.

                  KingCrab, you are right on, at least as far as I and my pizza dining companions feel, about Giordano's thick, thick, thick crust stuffed pizza is concerned. It's fair but not that great, but they get a lot favorable press and I do know a few (but not too many) people who really like their stuffed pizzas. When we have out of town or other guests who, like you, heard so much of the favorable press about their pizzas and they just want to try it out, we remain silent and let them decide for themselves. There aren't many in our experience who rave about their stuffed pizzas after trying it and they rarely ever want to go back. Malnati's, Gino's, Due's, Louisa's and some others, yes, many want to go back there, but not to Giordano's. This is just my experience and it's like you said, different people have different tastes.
