Pat's Pizza at 2679 N. Lincoln Ave. is the best Chicago thin crust in my opinion.
Wow, talk about an ancient thread that is "resurrected." However, I have to second the nomination of Pat's Pizza here in 2011 and say that Pat's has superb
Pizza (thin crust only - don't order any other kind of pizza, but their pastas are excellent, too). I could nominate dozens of other pizzerias, also, . . . but for real "short" visits to Chicago (without driving all over the crazy metropolitan area) . . . and for those who would like to taste the best of 2 worlds of great Chicago pizza (both super thin and deep dish) . . . I have highly
recommended (and got great feedback about) going to both
Pat's Pizza for thin crust and then walking just a short couple of blocks
down Lincoln Ave. to the great, great, great Lou Malnati's small cafe restaurant for one of the greatest Chicago Style deep dish pizzas on the planet. A number of people followed my suggestion at Reply #5 in this thread (http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,8921.0.html
) and have told me that was a "perfect idea
PM me if you need thoughts and suggestions about "cabbing" it a short distance from the downtown area or driving and parking on Lincoln Ave. (which have a few peculiarities). But this can be easily done and makes for a nice "pizza eating" trip (remember to order "small pizzas" at each place, tho . . . LOL).
