Lou Malnotti's is better for deep dish than Giordanos.. and theres one in Schaumburg.

Theres also a Rockler near by. and 2 Woodcraft stores around 25 mins in each direction.

Wait someone told me middle Ohio has the best pizza.

But anyway only time in Chicago was when my sons' high school band marched in one of the last South Side St. Patrick's Day Parades.

My wife has always talked about us going back to Chicago and it came up again over the weekend. Told her about this so I guess I'm in.

Only ever had Giordano's! But a customer told me I should try Pequod's Pizza. Somewhere on the north side. I may try Malnotti's in september, if there is one near my hotel

I see the pressure is on for food at the conference. Well, we did negotiate with the hotel and we can bring in food both Friday night and Saturday afternoon. As John, Ed and I work out the details we will be posting them - and yes we see the need for pizza.

Fantastic, I'll be there, I live about 20 minutes away. IMHO Gino's East is better than Malnatis or Giordanos. I remember Pequods from a long time ago.
