The lot in the back is owned by Pizza Palace, who rents the space to City of Elmhurst so they can generate revenue by issuing tickets. When the City of Elmhurst did not want to pay a higher rate from their 1960s rent price, the owner did

Pizza Palace either sells you pizza by the slice or they can sell you a whole pizza as well. But that is not the only thing they sell. They sell other Italian cuisine too. Not only Italian but American too. They sell hamburgers and fries and such. I have been living in Elmhurst for about 10 years and I just love to go there. There are pictures hanging on the wall depicting what old Elmhurst used to be like. Not only is it a great place to eat with friends but it is also pretty cheap. The last time I went there it cost me about five dollars for a slice of cheese pizza. I highly recommend Pizza Palace its a place to be with your friends and it can also be a family place too.

I cannot, in good conscience, encourage anyone to patronize the Pizza Palace in Elmhurst. As a long time Elmhurst resident, I have eaten there from time to time. The pizza has always been satisfactory. If my most recent visit had unfolded as my previous visits had, I suspect that I would have given this restaurant a good rating. This visit was different.

I drove to the Pizza Palace and I parked in the lot behind the restaurant (downtown Elmhurst has limited street parking). As soon as I got out of my car I was greeted by hoots and catcalls from a gaggle of Pizza Palace employees that were skulking about behind the restaurant?s dumpsters. One of the throng approached me and informed me that I had to leave or they would have my car towed. He said that they owned the parking lot and that it was for their customers only. It was odd that that he didn?t even ask me if I was going to patronize his restaurant. So, I did what he ordered me to do, I left.

While I concede that the owners of the Pizza Palace are entirely within their legal rights to refuse parking and to heckle their own customers and I accuse them of no wrong doing, I must say that it is an odd business strategy. But, we, the pizza loving public need not encourage this behavior by frequenting the Pizza Palace.

Go for the pizza, but you just have to order Onion Rings for starters. You won't get frozen processed onion rings here, these HEFTY babies were sliced, battered and deep fried when you ordered them!

Over the years their menu has been updated, they've doubled in size, adding an upscale dining room, BUT they've also kept the original "50's pizza parlor" on one half.
Kinda like a 1/2 and 1/2 pizza that pleases two different tastes.

We've been going there since Ed's dad ran the place, and their pizza remains the same as it was at their original Chicago location many, many years ago.

No matter where you're from, this place is worth the trip.

UPDATE-----April 17 2010----UPDATE-----April 17 2010----UPDATE

I'd like to add another STAR as Pizza Palace continues to make going there an experience.
Ten of us met there Friday night for my middle adult daughter's birthday. 6 adults, 3 teens and 1 four-year-old.
The service and food was terrific , as always.

Two and a half hours and even our 4 year old granddaughter was NOT bored.
Why? Wide screen showing kid stuff and a very talented and kid friendly teen going around making balloon animals for all the children. Entertaining even for the adults.

Then at the end of dinner came the B'day slice of cake with candles for the B'day gal. and we all sang "Happy Birthday, and I mean the everybody in the place.
Repeated for 2 other's B'days

How can it get any better that this?
Life is good!
