I have Aurelio’s, Lou Malnatis and Fox’s Pizza all
Within a 10 mins drive. Solid choices.

Best overall experience w/ very good, brick oven variety pizzas is Freedom Brothers in Plainfield.

1960s - 1980s Rock n Roll atmosphere
Great beer selection
Great food, including the pizza

In Carbondale but a definite favorite. Quatros is good too. In Chicago proper I like Atinos off Roosevelt.

Ever get Beggars? WI approved. Lol
I was going to ask why none of you south siders have mentioned Beggars?
I had it probably 15 years ago and dont honestly remember if it was good or not. Probably cause I was hammered, lol.

Any Beggar's and Connie's on Archer are also really good pizza if you're ever on the south side. Connie's pan is like a double dough slotted between a thin crust and deep dish. It may be the perfect pizza.

Paisano's in New Lenox, double cheese & mushroom was my wife's pick.
Full restaurant, nice, quiet, and we loved the enclosed booths.
I tried going back a couple of years after she passed away & cried all the way home, so haven't been back since.

I've never tried Tata's, but I've heard it's good. I haven't tried Waldo Cooney's either. I don't drive Towards Western often. I'm just west of Kedzie. I do like Beggar's though!

Do you remember Baldinelli's near 95th and Central Park? It's been gone for years now, but I always liked that place. Pizza Man wasn't bad either. The jumbo 19" 1 topping pizza for $9.99 couldn't be beat.

Been going here since I'm a kid and nothing else like it IMO. This is my favorite Chicago Tavern Style but so many kinds it is hard to pick a single favorite.

Des Plaines Location Only as far as I'm concerned the others are crap.

You are speaking my language. I miss Pizza Man so much. We used to get that all that time. Not the best pizza but Chicago style and the price was fantastic.

I remember Baldinelli's but I can't recall what I thought of the pizza.

Thin...Barnaby's on Caldwell in Niles

Thick...(No-brainer) Original Lou's on Lincoln Ave. in Lincolnwood

Special shout-out to Candlelite Chicago on Western in Chicago for the white pizzas.

We had one down south also. Maybe 95th or 111th???
We used to eat there once in awhile when I lived with my grandparents.
I've stopped by the one up on Wolf once in awhile when I had time to kill before the hockey game.
The pizza is great, and it's a cool place to meet up before the game.

IIRC, they also have/had a big ass burger, that's what I usually got as a kid.

For deep dish I like Georgios in downtown Crystal lake.... wayyyyyyy better than Lou’s.
Thin Crust is Pinemoor in crystal lake. It’s a tiny little take out place but the pizza is legendary

I have to disagree. Something is weird with their sauce. I have to rank Georgio's 3rd on my list.

@Mook isn't lying that Chuck E Cheese pizza is surprisingly good.

A couple of my local favorites are:

Al's Pizza in Warrenville
Papa Passero's in Westmont
Little Italian in Naperville

If anyone heads into the Southern Wisconsin/Lake Geneva area, Upper Crust in Genoa City makes a solid pie. My favorite is Next Door Pub in LG, I'd put it up against a lot of local Chicago pizza.

I've been here a couple of times with the family. They have good pizza (Rock themed) and solid drinks.

I love Milanoís, (109th and Western) knew the old owner, used to hang at the bar with him. Pretty cheesy, however they have amazing deep dish which I think many people donít realize they offer.

Beggars is good, Barracos seems pretty blah to me, but itís not bad.

Tataís is solid for the price as long as the owner or whoever is making it isnít stoned to high hell and burns it.

Havenít had Rosangelas in LONG time, kinda been slacking on trying other places.. this thread will change that.
