🍕 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.

The Deep Dish is always satisfying but you never get the crisp. For a Chicago pie, very good. One bite, everybody knows the rules…..

Honestly the best pizza ive ever had... so far... would give it a 10 but... you know the ice figure skating rules soo.... cheese bread was also amazing. You can also order the pizzas online and have them shipped to your house. Definitely not nearly as good as eating them fresh out of the oven tho...

Reminds me of a homemade lasagna, very good, but could only eat so much. Had high expectations and Giordano’s satisfied them!

Only downfall is the wait, but you gotta expect that going in. I’m more of a cheese guy but the topping were excellent and leftovers made for good snacks on the train ride home.

Extremely tasty and cooked perfectly. Really good crisp and cheese not overpowering. Highly recommend

Chicago Style, Giordano’s deep dish meatball pie. Not a big pizza chain guy but they killed it here.

Good pizza however it is a little too greasy. I think it’s would be considered as good as any good deep dish nothing too special and it was a decent cook time for deep dish. Took me about 30 minutes to get.

Really really good deep dish. Sauce on top raises this score from a high 6 to a mid 7

Always good pizza. Had the personal pizza which was par-baked prior. So the cheese was not as melty as usual. Still fantastic lunch. Viva
