Heavy but oh so worth it!! They do not deliver but take out is a better option because the place can get loud.

I've been going to windy city since it was a little shack in Belmont. I actually liked it better then as it had a great feel and was a comfy place with delish food. they expanded into a more "sterile" location with3a family friendly atmosphere which is good if you are going with a family. i'm not sure that their pizza prices are higher than others bur lets face it., going out for a pizza is really expensive now. I think the last one I got with tax and tip, since I had a beer while waiting for it, was about $35. Greek salad is good as are their sandwiches. I LOVE their windy city special and the veggie pizza but have actually started to make pizza at home by getting a good frozen pizza and topping it with a bunch of veggies. don't get me wrong, I love this place and still frequent there but just don't think pizza should be so expensive. wish they were open a bit later.

We ate at the restaurant and the ambiance is definitely a pizzeria. Only complaint was that you had to go to the bar for drinks.

They said that they import ingredients from Chicago and I love deep dish so I decided to give this place a try. Basically if you are a fan of Chicago deep dish you will LOVE LOVE LOVE this place. The reviewer that said it left an after-taste was probably talking about the type of cheese they use. Again, this is not Dominoes or Pizza Hut so expect the pizza to be different and in my opinion different is good. The prices are about what you would expect to pay in the area - ~$10-$20 per person.

Didn't try the BBQ so no comment there.

Their Deep dish Pulled Pork Pizza is to die for! Everyone I turn on to this pizza raves about it - and their BBQ (brisket,ribs, pulled pork and chicken) is JUST AS GOOD! One of the few places I wanted to be on the rewards program!!!
