Top 20 Restaurants Cont.

#17 Giordano's Evanston, IL

Let's cut right to the chase here...Giordano's is all about Chicago-style deep dish pizza. Giordano's is good, although I really don't have another deep dish place to compare it to. Giordano's was recommended by family and it certainly lived up to expectations. I had never been a fan of deep dish, but Giordano's instantly changed my mind. Are there others that are just as good? Probably. But I haven't eaten at them, so they don't make my list. If you are in town for a short stay, Giordano's gets my vote for a true Chicago pizza experience. Be prepared to wait, not so much on the table, but the pizza. Deep dish takes about 45 minutes to bake. A piece, maybe two, will do you.

Kevin forgot to mention why this pizza is truly special (spoken by a thin crust pizza fan): it was like a moderately thin crust topped with massive amounts of fresh toppings and cheese, topped AGAIN with another pizza crust. Until this experience, I thought deep dish was what you get at Pizza Hut. I was wrong! Thanks for helping me re-live this food memory, Kevin!
