on a family trip to chicago based around eating and a bruins/blackhawks game at the united center, stop number one after hopping off the train and checking into our hotel was the original gino's east location situated just off michigan avenue. opened in 1966, gino's east is known for their deep dish pizza and is a very popular tourist location.
arrving around 2pm on a friday afternoon, we waited in a line outside for about ten minutes before being shown to a table upstairs set for five. gino's is a large restaurant with multiple dining rooms, all covered in customer done graffiti. our waiter greeted us shortly, and rattled off a spiel he has obviously recited thousands of times about what gino's is known for and how it takes forty five minutes to an hour for a deep dish pie to cook. declining appetizers and salads, we put in an order for a small and medium (recommended due to our party size) sausage patty deep dish pizza.
