🍕 Chicago Classic : pepperoni, green pepper, onion, mushroom ⭐️ 7.7 (Brett) ⭐️ 7.1 (Brady) ⭐️ 8.4 (Dave Portnoy) 💸 $24 (Small = 6 slices) 💭 Stop☝🏼on our Chicago Deep Dish Tour and we decided to go with the undisputed heavy weight champion. Giordano’s was once synonymous with Chicago Deep Dish and has found even more fame by going commercial and expanding throughout the country. “They” say it’s Chicago’s best but we still don’t know who “they” are and as dedicated pizza reviewers we decided to find out for ourselves. We went with the Chicago Classic Deep Dish. Weighing in around 10lbs, this thing was STACKED with cheese. We think they pride themselves in their cheese pulls and go out of their way to make theirs the cheesiest. So while it looks great in photos, it tends to dominate the whole pizza. To make the dough to cheese ratio more favorable they make this really “doughy” with no type of crunch. And then the veggies were a little undercooked and not chopped up small enough in our opinion. For the best known deep dish spot, our expectations were higher especially after Dave gave this his highest Chicago Deep Dish rating of 8.4. Did Giordano’s sell out and go too commercial? Still worth a try but we believe the best is yet to come.

Pizza was phenomenal unfortunately I didn’t get a picture that’s how locked in I was with the pizza. Body of the pizza is the best. Crust I’m not a huge fan of.

Excellent Chicago style deep dish. Super heavy. Cheese is delicious. I’ve had better crust in this style.

Giordanos is my favorite Chicago deep dish I've had so far. The pies are pretty consistent when I ordered them in the past. The cheese is the star of this pie. Definitely not wearing a bikini after though 🙃

Didn’t eat deep dish but the regular was still very filling and rich with cheese and toppings.

Score based on Chicago-style pie...it’s really good but not pizza to me. This is a meal. Feels more like lasagna. Love the sauce on top...delicious. But leave time for a nap afterwards

Deep dish pizza...different than my normal pie but it lived up to the hype. Good sauce, lots of cheese, solid crust. I had to take off points for requiring a fork/knife. That’s just not how a pizza should be eaten...

Really good pizza! This is what a pizza should be. However, I think their pizza are frozen if you buy individual or small. Besides that no no, I like the taste and the cheese. I love cheese so it was good mixture.

Small cheese. Great taste, crust and sauce. A little too heavy on the mozzadell than is usual.
