Not authentic Chicago deep dish pizza. Crust is to thick, not nearly enough cheese and toppings. Looks good in the box but falls short on the plate. As someone who relocated to SoCal after living in Chicago (go cubs!) for 12 years, I was

Boy, I don't think an "eh" expresses my aversion to this place. I wouldn't just dismiss it, I'd actively warn people against the place.

We put in a phone order for pick-up. We were told it would be ready in 12 minutes. (!) Wow, a place

I tried the Italian beef and was very disappointed. This was nothing like the Italian beef I ate in the Chicago area. This was more like a French dip type of sandwich. If my wife tried her first Italian beef here, she would not have had

This place is good if you want to take things to go. Its a little too crammed for me inside. However the food was good & the service was pleasant.

The girl at the cashier always seem so grumpy. When I discussed with her about my order, she was rude. I'm not going back again, and I'll make sure all of my friends know how I feel about this place. \r

I have eaten here many times and I just love the food. It reminds me so much of the great food in Chicago. I don't understand these people who complain about the hot dogs. Where do you usually go? I think this place is a God send for

Pros: Ribs, Not Crowded

The deep dish pizza is a little greasy for my taste but the stuffed jumbo shells are awesome! They are reasonably priced for the portion size. The downside is that the parking lot is very small and usually packed.

Pros: Good tasting, Chigago style food

Cons: PRICES ARE WAY TOO HIGH!

Although this place is a bit expensive, the food is unbelievably good! Owned by actor Joe Mantegna, Taste Chicago has the best italian beef I've ever tasted. The pizza is very good, too. I live a mile away and it takes everything in me not to eat there every week!

I have been in the pizza industry in the midwest for about 15 years. I love the deep dish here. It's very similar to Chicago's classis pizza, and the deep dish is wonderful. It's huge, with extra large slices for about 20 bucks.

This was by far the worst pizza I've ever tasted! It cost $18 dollars for 3 slices and it wasn't even baked all the way through. After eating a few bites of the pizza I instantly became sick, that is not an exaggeration.

The food is great. My only problem was the limited parking. Both the ribs and chicken are worth the trip. The service is friendly. This place is best enjoyed on a weekday around 2:30. Less lunch crowd.

Here's the deal; you order at the counter, then you find a seat and wait for your food to be prepared. Problem is, as soon as you walk away, you stand a good chance of being forgotten by the ditsy bimbos at the register. DON'T LEAVE

I have tried "chicago-style" dogs all over the valley: Encino, Van Nuys, Canoga Park, Winnetka. However, I found their Chicago dog to be the best I've had locally. The poppyseed bun topped it off. Everything was perfect. I even considered

This place is owned by Joe Montagna and his wife (he plays the father on Joan of Arcadia), hence all the hype. The food is OK, but nothing great. The hot dogs and beef sandwiches DON'T include fries; in fact they don't even have fries,
