NileGuide Expert tip:
There are usually long waits for this cozy establishment, so arrive early to avoid the line. Cash Only.
One of Chicago's oldest pizza joints, Chicago Pizza & Oven Grinder is a cozy establishment set in an old brownstone building with beautiful wood paneling and plenty of private booths to enjoy great conversation. Often frequented by couples to intimately share the restaurant's signature pizza pot pie, made with Sicilian dough, a delicious homemade sauce, cheese, and a selection of other fillings. Make sure to order the enormous garlic bread as you wait for your pizza. And, if you just love the pizza pot pie, take one frozen to go! The restaurant also has a delightful bar where you can wait for a table to open.
