Giordano's Tips (31)

Giordano's: How Pizza is supposed to be!!

True Chicago-style pizza. Loaded with ingredients, more cheese than you can imagine, a delictable crust, and the tomato sauce is mouth-watering. The ingredients are on the inside and the sauce is on top.

Favorite Dish Go with the stuffed (DEEP) dish, for sure! It takes a little while to cook but the wait is certainly worth it. Two pieces will more than fill you up.

Giordano's: Giordano's Why go to Chicago+not try deep dish?

The first Giordano's was opened on February 1974. They served a variation of their mother's deep-dish, double-crusted pizza, which she made on Easter and stuffed with ricotta cheese. Today, they serve both deep dish and thin crust pizza. You have your choice of toppings. The small plain serves 1-2 people and costs $8 for the thin and $12 for the deep dish. We got the small spinach deep dish which costs $15.

The one thing you must remember when eating here is that since the pizza is freshly prepared, it takes about 30 for your thin crust to be ready or 45 minute for your deep dish to be ready. You should order a light appetizer for your wait time. Salads are about $5 and the mozzarella sticks and stuffed mushrooms are $6. I was disappointed they didn't include some free bread sticks to chew on because of the long wait time. It is one of the suggestions I emailed to them.

If pizza is not your cup of tea there are salads, pastas and sandwiches to choose from. But why would you come to Chicago and not try a deep dish pizza. That is kind of like going to Philly and not trying a cheese steak.

When the pizza finally did come out, it looked huge. The small deep dish really does serve 1-2 people. It has a lot of cheese which I love but it had too much sauce that is sweet. I scraped that off and ate the rest. I finished my half of the pie, but my mother was struggling to finish the first slice of hers.

The service was good, our pizza arrived correctly. However, the table behind us ordered a spinach deep dish as well, but the waitress screwed up their order and gave them a plain. They knocked off a couple of dollars for them for the mistake. I don't think I would be too happy even with a discount after a 45 minute wait.

Overall the pizza was OK and the service was good. However, the original Pizzeria Uno which I had twice the last time I was in Chicago is my hands down favorite for deep dish pizza. I didn't eat there because I wanted to see what other deep dishes were out there.

Giordano's: Stuffed Pizza ... It's the Stuff of Chicago!

Giordano's is synonymous with Chicago - lively environment, bustling crowds, great authentic Chicago style pizza. Once you get there with your party, you are most likely in for a 45 minute wait. Take advantage of the "Order Your Pizza Ahead" option. That way, your pizza will be baking while you wait. It will minimize the seated at table to eating pizza time significantly.

Favorite Dish I love the classic favorite - deep dish stuffed with cheese and spinach. I also recommend a house salad and a cup of their soup of the day. No matter what is has been, it has always been delicious and fresh!

Giordano's: Deep Dish Pizza

I mentioned my favorite thin pizza in another restaurant tip.

Now for deep dish. Chicago is known for this. I haven't tried, or even attempted to try deep dish outside of Chicago.

I am going to be careful with this one b/c I am not a true native Chicagoan. I also have not tried all of the pizzerias that supposedly specialize in this delicacy. From what I have tried-and I have tried many-I rank Giordano's as my favorite.

Giordano's is actually a chain, so there are many locations in Chicago and the 'burbs. I also saw one in Orlando, FL.

Favorite Dish The secret to deep dish is that more toppings you order, the less cheese you get. There is a lot of cheese in a plain deep dish. So, if your cholesterol is as high as mine, load up on the veggies.

Giordano's: Great Lunch Special Deals

Stopped by for lunch on a recommendation after spending the morning walking around the city solo. Giordano's is one of those "famous" pizza spots in Chicago so I thought I needed to give them a try. It was easy to get a table for one at noon on a Friday. My waitress was super friendly and welcoming too, eager to answer questions and make suggestions. I opted for the lunch special which included a personal pizza, soup or salad and a drink.

The food came out FAST! My pizza, soup and freshly brewed iced tea (score) arrived at my table in less than 10 minutes, making the lunch specials perfect if you are touring and want a quick meal. The soup was good and the pizza was hot and fresh. You probably won't like this restaurant if you don't like cheese, because my pizza was probably 90% cheese, 8% bread and 2% sauce. The crust had a pleasant cornmeal flavor and a nice crunch to it. The tomato sauce was plain and just okay. The cheese was overwhelming.

I wouldn't go out of my way to eat here if I find myself in Chicago again, but my experience was very pleasant. Best of all, the lunch specials are CHEAP! My total check was $10.50. I tipped my waitress $3 so I got a sit down, quick and tasty meal for less than $15. That is unheard of in most cities in America.
