We had tried to come here years ago but were turned away by the previous owner because we had not preordered our pizza. We visited again yesterday and were greeted warmly by the new owner. We ate out on the covered, heated patio (which definitely...More

I first visited this small, quirky pizza place many years ago and enjoyed the pizza very much. Didn't make it back in the later years and then it closed and then Burt passed on. Was very happy to hear it had been bought and was...More

Met Burt, ate the pie, reviewed the joint during their final season. On hearing of the "revival", I dined in on a Sunday. Drank a beer while waiting, wasted $5.50 on a MISERABLE salad. It's all about the pizza there, and while there's apparently no...More

This is a great place but you have to call ahead but they now have a patio seating. If you can't get a reservation you can always get a carry out. Don't miss the Pizza deep dish and so good.

I decided to try Burt's Pizza in Morton Grove. I will have to start out by saying that we have lived in Morton Grove for 22 year and have never tried it while the original owner, Burt, was still there. So I can't compare. I...More

My kind of place: Local, intimate, unpretentious...but the pizza was way too bready. Waitress was a bit brusque. Slight redemption by having Anti-Hero on tap.

Came here on business trip but arrived a night early. Never been to Chicago before so after some research found this newly reopened hidden gem. Sadly the original owner has passed but the new ownership is pouring its passion into a great pie. The pizza...More
