My favorite pizza in Champaign, Il, is Monicals but a close second is Garcias in Champaign, Illinois. I think they have spread out to a pretty wide area, now. Their pizza is a deep dish pizza that has a great taste.
It's been a while but, they at least used to have a huge hot air ballon in the shape of a flying tomato. That's one way to get write off your expensive hobby to advertising.
You can buy it by the slice from most of their stores or whole pies that weigh what seems like a ton, they are HEAVY!!!
My favorite is the Gut Buster.
It has Crushed Tomato Sauce, Cheese, Sausage, Pepperoni, Onions, and Green Pepper on it. Possibly mushrooms, too, it's now been over a decade since I've been back there to have some of it. We moved down to the St Louis area where they just do not know how to make a good pizza.
Champaign, being a large college town, is full of great pizza places of all different styles. I guess we need to plan a trip back up there to see if all of the pizzas are as great as my memory thinks.
Monicals, Garcias, Pap Dels, Village Inn, and a bunch of other great places. The bad thing is that some of the local stores are being pushed out by the big chains and their cheap, low quality pizzas.
