Ask many Chicago resident where to get the best deep dish pizza, and you’ll get many answers to which they think it’s the best.
Some prefer Lou Malnati’s, others like Giordano’s, some Gino’s East and finally there’s Pizzeria Uno – where I had my first deep dish pizza so many years ago.
Other pizza places exist – I’m not going into a fight which is your favourite. If you want to fight – keep it in the comments box and keep it clean.
As I said before, Pizzeria Uno was where it started for me – so I went back there after a few years not visiting. As I said in an earlier post, sometimes staying in a down-town hotel has its benefits – it means you can dine out without getting burned by the cost of Hotel food.
Whilst there was a queue for a table, I opted for my usual home when eating by myself – at the bar. It makes me feel a bit like a barfly, a bit more relaxed and more willing to chat to people.
Beer me? …
Nah. Cola me.
So, what to have. Let’s look at the menu.
Cooking class eh? Might try that next trip….
I went for the Numero Uno in a Medium size – there’s a good reason for this – and it’s not because I’m a pig… Mainly it’s dinner for the next day when I would be at the Hyatt, getting ready for another busy weekend catching up with friends (see – economics. Also, one night away from the joy of instant noodles).
So, what did I get? One of these.
Whilst some feel Chicago Deep Dish can be a bit stodgy, this didn’t feel like that to me – certainly, it was filling as I managed about 2 and a 1/2 slices before calling it quits.
Round 1: Done!
Round 2…. Defeated!!!
Pizzeria Uno offers its Pizza to go, so I had the other half boxed up… and the rest that was out.
Guess my eyes were bigger than my stomach. Of course – I took the rest out. With a bill of $30 for two and a bit days’ worth of food – it’s good value. And tasty as heck.
Editor’s note: It lasted till Friday Morning. A reasonable food investment.
With a full stomach and pizza in hand, I made the short walk from Pizzeria Uno, back to the Intercontinental Chicago.
See you in 6 months hopefully!
Back to my digs
Overall: Deep Dish Pizza can be a thing to argue about in Chicago with everyone and their dog having recommendations about their favourites (as well as those people who don’t like deep dish pizza).
Me? I don’t mind as long as it’s hot, fresh and not stodgy. And Pizzeria Uno’s was that. Recommended.
