Higher than what El Pres said it was but it’s still not in the 8s. It got a lot of hype with my friends and it was good but I’ve had better deep dish pizza elsewhere.

A Chicago classic was at one point my favorite pizza besides barnabys, with age comes wisdom though… with age comes wisdom

Pequod’s is such a staple in Chicago deep dish. That crust is phenomenal! Lou’s is my favorite but Pequod’s is still superb!

Pretty decent pie. 3rd of my Chicago tour. This was the most unique crust I’ve had here yet. Almost a corn-bread texture to it. Loved the crisp edges. Sauce was good, and cheese was decent-although I thought there could have been more of it. Would rank this above Goirdano’s for sure, but shy of Lou’s.

I get it. If you like deep dish, this is the place. The ingredients are fresh. I can’t believe how well they cook each pie. The dough is fluffier than Giordano’s. Get a reservation.

King of the Chicago Deep Dish! Love the unique style, trading Pie Crust edges for caramelized Detroit style. Saucy in a good way. And the dive bar vibe is a bonus!

Best deep dish in Chicago. Absolutely loved the sauce and the pepperoni. Deep dish is not my favorite but would definitely come back to Pequods (of course if I’m in the mood for the heaviness of deep dish). Nice sauce, cheesy as ever and good crust.

While the tourists flock to Giordano’s & Lou Malnati’s, the Chicago locals swear by Pequod’s. The original location in Morton Grove was founded in 1970 by Burt Katz, who then sold the business in 1986 to new owners who opened this current location in the Lincoln Park section of Chicago in 1992. Pequod’s is famous for their pan-style deep dish pizza with a signature caramelized crust, which is outstanding. Very similar to Detroit style pizza with a charred cheese crust as opposed to the buttery & flakey pie crusts you’d find on the Giordano’s & Malnati’s deep dish pizzas. Unfortunately, that caramelized crust is the only redeeming quality of this pie that is smothered in sauce, drowning the entire pizza. This is more like a hearty tomato soup in a bread bowl with an overwhelmingly tangy, tart and acidic sauce engulfing the majority of the pie. There’s not nearly enough cheese; just a little near the surface but mostly a thin layer near the bottom. You’ll need a knife, fork and most likely a spoon to tackle this overly saucy casserole. The layer of dough at the bottom of the pan is more like the bottom of a dessert pie than pizza dough; not particularly tasty, not completely terrible, but definitely not my style. Aside from the caramelized crust, there’s no reason to try this pizza that’s swimming in sauce. I love the city of Chicago but their pizza isn’t in the same league as legendary Brooklyn & New Haven spots. Deep dish pizza just doesn’t float my boat and Pequod’s, version is no exception.

Best pizza in Chicago and probably on planet earth. The crust is caramelized and the pizza has the perfect taste and texture. Going anywhere else in Chicago will be a letdown. Try it and you’ll never go anywhere else in Chicago.

Amazing!! Worth it. I think thick and thin should be separate voting for obvious reasons.

Was hoping for a blow your socks Pizza but was disappointed. The crust was more like a Detroit style. Where the bottom was almost fried in the pan. Great crunch because of that. Good cheese pull. Sauce tasted like it was store bought. Almost something you would get from a box.

I love New Haven, NY, and Detroit style cheese pizza. I’m really not the biggest fan of Chicago deep dish…with one exception - this one. Pequod’s has the charred crispy cheese edges and a tangy smooth sauce that is its own style. Sure, it’s more of a pizza cake than a pizza pie. I get it…you can’t fold it…and you have to eat it with a knife and fork. But, this continues to be my favorite pizza on planet Earth.

300 reviews!!!! What a ride, took the flight out to Chicago to celebrate starting off with the caramelized crust deep dish. Good crunch on the undercarriage while remaining pillowy and airy as well with great flavor on the outer edge. Cheese has great pull upon each bite but the sauce is we’re it’s at here. Sweet rich savory sauce load up the top of this pie and make each bite an explosion of flavor. For my first Chicago pizza I was really impressed, awesome place very friendly staff on a busy Friday night, if your around give it a shot!!!
