From my first visit many years ago I continue to enjoy and highly recommend this business. Service is great, prices acceptable, portions are great in many cases too much for a solo eater. Always have had leftovers for taking home and reminding me of the products' rewarding taste. Deep Dish Pizza is their specialty which takes time to prepare so... More

This is the only local option to have authentic Chicago style pizza. So delicious, great staff and family owned/operated. Five stars and a regular in our take out rotation.

We went on a Saturday night. It was busy. The guy at the counter suggested that we place our order while were wait for a table. So glad we did. We ordered garlic cheesy bread, lasagne, and a thin crust cheese pizza. They were all delicious. Loved the flavor of the thin crust and the cheese on the pizza and... More

Is there anyone in the state of Alabama that can make a Chicago style deep dish pizza? My family came here and was treated terribly. The management spoke to every table but our table. The waitress overlooked us until it just became obvious. I really wanted to treat my family to this pizza but they settled for subs and a... More

I love this place because it really reminds me of living in Chicago, Illinois. If you or your family are any where near Hwy. 150 in Hoover, Alabama, you should go buy and check these guys out. They're so worth it. It's just like having Chicago in Hoover!!!!

We got the deep dish pizza. It took 45 minutes to cook, which they warned us before we ordered. I wish we'd called in our order ahead of arrival, but it was well worth the wait. I was also glad we got there a little early. It was a Friday night, and by 6:30 PM there was a substantial line... More

Fantastic deep dish Chicago style pizza. The sauce is excellent and the pizza dough is perfect. Definitely get the garlic bread with the marinara - sinful.

We ordered a pizza and salad for the two of us. I was shocked to see how large the salad was! It was a meal and a half by itself. The one thing that I could respect was that it was 30 minutes to closing on a Tuesday night and there were at least 10 tables filled with people and... More

So glad we found this place. The pizza was soooo good. We had the deep dish and loved it. Never had so much cheese on a pizza!! Salad was great also. Staff very friendly!!. Casual atmosphere. Was afraid my 12 year old son might not like the authentic style pizza, but I was so very wrong. He loved it. You... More
