Can't believe this was supposed to be good. Crust was like cornbread and sausage was flattened into bottom of pizza. Had to throw it away.

This trip was our first time to Chicago & we highly anticipated having authentic deep dish pizza. It was a long train ride from where we were staying, but it was well worth it. So many people say they don't like deep dish because it has too much dough, but somehow Gino's makes theirs with the most flakey, light crust I've ever had the pleasure of eating. You definitely feel like a local here. No pretense whatsoever & the 40's decor is fabulous. It was smaller than I expected but that just lent itself to the homey atmosphere. The jukebox was pretty good too. I wish I was there right now!

NO relation to Chicagos famous GINOs Pizza, But this place ROCKS !! My FAV thin crust pizza on the north side. Peggy has been there for 30 years and she makes every pie herself. There are only 5 tables so sometimes there is a short wait.

For all of you in the neighborhood.......It's 5 doors down from the GRANVILLE ANVILLE

Everytime I have guests I always take them to Gino's North. Five years ago I took a friend from Izmir, Turkey there and he still asks about the folks there that he met. They still ask about him, too. Nothing fancy with the food, just great thin crust pizza made in a kitchen of one cook. The crowd is the most diverse you will find, local older folk regulars, young Loyola students, local gays and lesbians from the hood, black, white, latin, you name it. Everyone is always welcome. Now let me warn you the outside is plain scruffy, but once you walk it you are amazed by the 1940's art deco decore. Behind the bar is a lite five foot lady statute surrounded by a water fountain. There is only five booths refurbished as if they were still in 1940. You could imagine Al Capone sitting in one of them. There are even the old phone outlets at each booth when they used to bring a phone over to you. The drinks are cheap, Monday $2.00 beer, Tuesdays calls are $2.00. Don't ask to see the Wine list. It is Red or White from the Jug. WARNING, this is not a place to go with an expense account. They don't even take credit cards. Best local place you'll find!!
