Okay, yes the pizza is delicious, we've tried all of the types. Their lasagna is great, nice portion and I always have to have the Antipasto salad. The small is large enough to share. The best part of this restaurant is the staff, service is EXCELLENT! I love how the owners walk around and know and recognize the customers. It's... More

This pizza is just like the best of Chicago's deep dish. They have other crusts but their deep dish is amazing. They use fresh ingredients and make the crust so it doesn't get any better. Almost makes me feel like I'm eating healthy:) Ha!

This is a pie like no other I have ever had. The stuffed pizza was loaded with flavor, substance, and a pleasing texture that made me crave more. The sauce was a little "watery" but so fresh and flavorful. The thing weighted a ton! 2 pieces max at a time.

After reading and hearing reviews on this place I decided to try it. I got the Beachum specialty pizza. There was far to much cheese and not enough meat. The taste was bland for a pizza that had pepperoni, green pepper, bacon, onion and jalapeno. They brought out buttered garlic bread balls with a cup of marinara sauce as a... More

I met up with my nephew when I was stopping overnight at a near by Microtel in 2015 when I was on the Hot Rod Power Tour. I had planned on doing the same this year when I had an overnight stop in Hoover. Unfortunately they are closed Monday, so good pizza night.

Googled the best pizza in Birmingham about 6 months ago and found this jewel! No competition! The best by far in this area with a very friendly staff! A must if visiting this area, you will be happy you did!

We walked in on a Saturday night 7 minutes before their scheduled close. We apologized for arriving so late to their closing time and asked if we could simply get a pizza to go. The counter person told us our late arrival was not a problem and invited us to take a booth. We thought that was very nice. After... More

This is 100% authenticity Chicago style deep dish pizza. Couple that with Chicago sports memorabilia all over the walls and good service, a great place to eat. One pizza can feed four people so it's not all that expensive either. I recommend th place for anyone who has been away from Chi town way too long.
