I was recently visiting Chicago with my boyfriend for the weekend. We has seen your pizzeria on Man v. Food and were excited to eat there. It was my last day in Chicago, and it was lunch time. We had about three hours left until the cab

After waiting for 45 minutes we were served cold cheese sticks and then 15 minutes later came this horrible deep dish pizza. This place does not know how to make pizza!!

Everyone is right about Gino's pizza. It has an unusual crust, with some cornmeal as part of the recipe. Most people just rave. However, there is no getting around the crust bit. If you dont like the heavy cornmeal crust this is just

This is the best pizza in the world!!! there's a ton of cheese and an awesome sauce to top it off, the crust goes with it well. This is by far my favorite pizza.

Crazy awesome deep dish pizza (I usually hate deep dish, but theirs is soooooo scrumptious.) Crazy graphitti interior, super fun hangout place. Go here every where when I'm up in Chicago visiting family. What a cool place. If you are in

I've been a fan of Gino's East since I was in high school making trips to the restaurant (in its old location) and writing my name where ever I could. So maybe it's the nostalgia that keeps bringing me back...or maybe it's the pizza. Out

Chicago is a pizza town and sadly so many of my friends when they come to town want to try Ginos. I took my friends here recently and was disappointed yet again. I wish I understood why this place gets so much attention, the pizza is

My family went to Chicago for a vacation and my aunt (who lives there) took us to Gino's East. It was some of the BEST pizza I have ever had! Love the atmosphere too! I think I put my name in the booth! haha

We went in to the one on Superior and ordered a large, 3 topping DD pizza, and cheesy bread for carry out. Cost's were conveniently not posted, but hey, it's just pizza right. WRONG. We were rung up and told the price was over $45.00!!!

What's not to like about delicious deep dish pizza [unless you don't like grease!]

Try it with mushrooms and extra cheese! Yum!

I also like cheesecake for dessert. If you visit Chicago, you gotta check out Ginos!

Pros: Best deep dish in town

Cons: Usually crowded and not exactly heatlh food

These guys know pizza. While I'm not a fan of the deep dish anywhere (other than the funky version at Chicago Pizza Co), I do enjoy good thin crust. This is thicker than many thins, but still delish. I had a spinach pizza and it rocked.

Pros: Spinach thin crust

Cons: It won't make you any skinnier

This place used to be great. Number One! But now, Cheap cheese just made to look stretchy, cheap ingredients and overpriced. Whoever owns Gino's now clearly deals in volume over quality. I'll go to Malnati's for real italian deep dish.

The service was great. Our water glasses were never empty. Great menu! Deep dish pizza takes a while to cook, but well worth the wait! Interesting atmosphere (you get to write on the walls). Awesome, awesome pizza.

It started out pretty good. We got seated quickly and the beer I ordered tasted good. It went down hill from there. The cheese sticks were extra salty and the sauce was just so, so. The waiter forgot about us the rest of our stay except to

Gino's is a great pizza joint. I really like pizza, so it was perfect for me. I like all types of pizza, in fact. Sausage, pepperoni, green peppers - not a big fan of black olives, however. btw, this is a test of the reviewing

I agree with the person who wrote stating that, as minorities they had received terrible service. That was also our experience at Geno's. Our waiter looked put out that he had to serve us and treated every request with a roll of the eyes.

Fantastic pizza. Just what you would want from a Chicago pizza place. Watch out for long lines, but if you have a little extra time, it is well worth the wait. It has great atmosphere, and is nice to eat in if you don't mind a lot of

When we first arrived, the restaurant was half empty but the host told us to wait 10 minutes. This would be fine except when another group arrived they were immediately seated (and no, they did not have a reservation). We were then led

Gino's East lives up to their reputation for delicious deep dish pizza, but their service leaves something to be desired. We were originally seated at a dirty table, then were moved to a section with no waiter. It took forever to get our food. The pizza, though, was very good.

Have to agree with a previous reviewer. We also found the deep dish pizza to be a saucy mess and certainly not worth the 45 minute wait. The service was friendly but our waiter seemed shocked that we didn't want to take a 'doggy' bag.

Maybe I expect too much from their pizza but I thought Gino's would be one of the best that Chicago has to offer. My friends and I were sadly disappointed. Their pizza is just oozing all over the place with sauce which didn't even taste

I have read the other reviews and truly wonder if this is the restaurant I visited. The crust was hard, heavy and flavorless. Cheese was almost nonexistent and tomato sauce appeared to be nothing more than pureed canned tomatoes dumped

Overall, this is the best pizza in Illinois. The atmosphere is comfortable; you feel welcomed. The "patty-styled sausage" makes Gino's East's sausage pizza the best - Hands down!!! The lines are long, especially on Friday nights, but

I LOVE this pizza. They have been voted numerous times as the best pizza in Chicago. I can't even begin to describe the crust - it's very buttery and is making my mouth water just thinking about it. Great place and if you are ever in Chicago you must go there!

PROS: Best pizza - hands down
