“Never leave hungry!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014

We regularily visit Chicago Style and for good reason - huge portions at a reasonable price and fast service. I am always full and have leftovers - its busy there but that's the mark of a good restaurant - go on a week night around 4:30 and you will have no problem getting a seat before the dinner rush! I highly reccommend the appy platter!

“Great pizza, however...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2014

Had a delicious Chicago-style pizza here a few years ago. Unfortunately, the lines are long and there are no real tables to eat here, so by the time we picked up our pizza and drove home, it had gotten cold...

“NUMMY”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2014

Holy Moly...This place was amazing., this is our second visit coming from Calgary and again we were thrilled. The food is fantastic, people super friendly. It is a small restaurant, so be patient and if you are ordering a deep dish pizza order it ahead while you are waiting for your table..
My husband is the pizza expert and he was very very pleased. I loved the pasta dishes. Would definitely return.

“Worth the drive to the Hammer!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2014

We visited this place on a Saturday afternoon after seeing it on the "You Gotta Eat Here" television show. We arrived at 3:30 even though they didn't open until 4. The door was locked of course so I called and was surprised that they answered. I explained that we were from out of town and that we wanted to order the deep dish "stuffed" pizza. They were happy to take my order early as it takes 30 minutes to cook. We ordered the large deep dish (10 slices) with pepperoni, bacon, and sliced meatballs. Cost was about $30. The crust was amazing. Almost like what you would find in a high end bakery. Not overly crispy but not chewy at the same time just right. The meatballs were sliced and obviously made from scratch. We took our pizza to go but 15 minutes after they opened they were full and there were people waiting outside for tables. I understand there was a recent reno done. Guys... if you're gonna serve food this good... and appear on national tv shows.... FORGET THE RENOS!!! Either move to a bigger location that has a parking lot and room for more diners (we had to park on the side street) or OPEN UP A SECOND LOCATION! If you're in the Hamilton area... and want to try a great deep dish pizza... give these guys a try! You won't regret it.
