We picked up a pizza on the way to our 6 1/2 hour drive home on a Sunday to eat. Fast easy pick up and pizza crust was delicious. Sauce and sausage great. Tried to stop in at 11:30 on Saturday after a show at the theatre and closed at 11. Surprised as it was a bar and restaurant. Any... More

We sat at the bar, and Heather guided us through pizza selections and several rounds of brew selections and cocktails. Service and advice couldn't have been better.

We were in town for the weekend. Before driving the 5 hours home, we decided to get a pizza to go to eat when we got home. I ordered the night before so we could pick up and head home. When I got there, the employee kept acting like if ordered something different. He said something about my thin crust... More

Awesome pizza and great service. My wife and I eat here each time we come to Chicago. Like this one because it has the comedy club.

I do not like pizza. Much less deep dish Chicago style. But my daughter likes it very much so we took a recommendation from our hotel clerk and went here, Nice atmosphere. Very busy. No wait though so that was good. Definitely more like a sports bar than a restaurant. At least where we sat. We ordered and the waiter... More

We had dinner at Gino's East. You really can't come to Chicago without having some Deep Dish Pizza. The inside of Gino's is all decorated with grafitti and guests signing the walls. It was really street and loved the art of it. The pizza's are quite expensive but they are very filling. A medium pizza is enough for 2 people.... More

The pizza was excellent. A medium pizza is enough for 2. However, the service seemed to be under staffed.

Took the family downtown for a day in the city and someone recommended we try Ginos. Had both a thin and crispy and a deep dish. The thin/crispy pizza was pretty good, but couldn't compare to their deep dish which was great. Staff/service was great and an impressive selection of beers. on the negative side the acoustics in the place... More

Went to have dinner at said location, because I was very impressed by the gino's east in Austin,Tx. I figured I would have been blown out of the water since this was actually in Chicago...WRONG. The pizza wasn't even close to the one in ATX. The crust was burnt, the marinara sauce was way to watery and runny. Nothing like... More
