On game day, the food hits the spot either before, during or after the Hawkeyes have graced the field (or dirtied it up). The food is pretty good and the prices are prices fairly for an economy that continues to act in total confusion. The waitresses have always been most gracious even on those occasions when the food has not. I would rate it as one of the better pizza establishments in town but certainly not the best.

I'm a Chicagoan so I know pizza and Old Chicago's pizza is really good. I had a personal sized thin crust and, just like it should be, the crust was crispy, the toppings fresh (though I wish yellow onions were an option - Chicago pizzas do not have scallions or red onions!). Service was good, even though I was alone, and the drinks were good too. The restaurant has TVs everywhere so you won't miss your game and it is very close to many of the Coralville hotels. Highly recommend!

We ate there on a Monday night so was relatively quiet except for the younger group (teenagers) there with their friends. Meals were good, fair priced but service was slower than would be expected with not very many customers. Our waitress was friendly and attentive. Did look a bit unkempt, not exactly dirty but like they hadn't had time to catch up from a previous busy time (which I doubt there was).

The very best quality of this place is the service. The price ranks up there as well. The food is filling with ample portions. We had 10 people in our party and did not have to wait long for our meals. We ordered a few items that they had just sold out of so we were a tad disappointed when we learned we had to go with a second option. However, the waiter informed us of this before leaving the table to put in the other orders. There was a "sports bar" atmosphere with flat screens around every corner. It looked like a fun place for the college crowd.

We have visited these guys in a number of states when we visit the USA. They are a couple of notches above the rest. Every place can have a bad day/server now and then, but we have been here about twenty times and have no complaints. The menu has many regular items and also a number of variasions of many items you would normally find in a food establishment like this. Staff very good.
