I enjoyed the craft beer, the salad, and the service was excellent but the deep dish pizza is the some of the best I’ve ever had. It’s definitely worth a trip here!

Chicago style is the most overrated of the pizza styles. It was very good as a Chicago style. Pizza was cooked perfectly and the young women at the host table were very helpful for pickup.
