I tried this place last Sunday on a whim and fell in love.

MOD pizza is a casual dining place, ala Chipotle or Panera.The concept is just like this: pick your size pizza/salad. small, MOD or Mega(double decker crust) it's all one price, add whatever toppings you want with no up charge and they cool it right there in front of you with a wood fired brick oven. Not sure on exact prices, a MOD (11") pizza and fountain drink is a hair over $10 which is an absolute steal for a custom pie in my opinion.

They serve beer, wine, fresh made flavored of lemonades, iced tea and milk shakes.

I went last night for my second time with Jason [MENTION=11473]JBruno88[/MENTION] and he loved it as well. Ordered a mega pizza which is two crusts with sauce and cheese stacked on top of each other to start. Added fresh chopped basil, roasted garlic, olive oil, spicy sausage, pepperoni, green peppers, onion, oregano, and finished it off with a basalmic fig glaze. that with a fountain drink was $13.xx




They have a few Chicagoland locations, this particular one is the south side of Army Trail Rd just west of Schmale in Bloomingdale.

Went there saturday... First time it's a little confusing specially when you got two kids.. I recommend looking @ menu online first before you go so can get idea what they offer.

The blackberry lemonaid is great.. The pizza is good as well.. Ingredients seem'd fresh. They also have salad which looked pretty good as well.

Went to this place over summer vacation in Seattle. It was solid pizza and ingredients for the money. Sauce was good also.

I love pizza

I never knew that. Not a fan of their beef so I never go there. I'll have to give it a try.

Yep. Thursday used to be $5 pizza day. But now its $6. But the pizza is still pretty awesome. Usually get the Supremo loaded up with crushed red pepper before they bake it. Spicy goodness for days.

Personally I think MOD is better. I've had both places. Mod has many more options also
