This is the OTHER deep dish pizza place in Chicago. Or should I say… The BETTER one?? DUNDUNDUUUNNNN……
Yes, ladies and gentlemen, Gino’s East is definitely better than Giordano’s. I like this place more because of several reasons:
First. The deep dish pizza actually tastes good. I got the Chicago Fire, which is pizza with (and I quote exactly from the menu) “patty-style sausage made extra hot & spicy with fire roasted red peppers and red onions.” It was really hot. Coming from an Asian, let me tell you that it WAS HOT. It was so hot that I think a skin in my mouth peeled. I swear.
Second. The restaurant itself was really young and fun. Apparently people are allowed to write on the wall and the chairs so there are graffitis everywhere!
Third. The portion is smaller and more reasonable. My friend and I actually finished our food!
So if you are trying to decide on where to go for deep dish pizza, you should definitely come here. Despite the fact that Gino’s pizza is $2 more expensive than Giordano’s, the taste is definitely worth it!
