our trip to chicago would have been incomplete without a stop for some chicago style pizza. being that it was a short walk from our hotel, we chose giordano's. we have eaten here a few times before, and have always really enjoyed their famous stuffed pizza
we arrived around noon, and feared that there may be a wait for table since it was a friday. the restaurant was quite full, but luckily there was a table available for us. after waiting roughly ten minutes, we were brought water and menus. we had an idea of what we wanted, and quickly put in our order. due to the thickness of the pizzas, they take around forty minutes to cook. giordano's offer both thick and thin crust pizza's, salads, pastas, and sandwiches. they also have a full bar with a decent beer selection.
we started off with some hot wings, which were good, but certainly not great. the sauce had a decent amount of spice to it without being overbearing.
like i said above, we ordered the small pizza, and we were unable to finish the final two pieces. the menu says it serves 1-2 people, but this pie could easily feed four, especially if an appetizer is eaten prior.
