In any other city than New York or Chicago could I honestly see Uno's winning that award. For the rest of us, great pizza is much harder to come by. You can't just walk down the street, see a tasty-looking pie in the window, order a slice, and be pleasantly surprised.
Even in Minneapolis / St. Paul, though we have some great pizza joints around town, I have yet to find a deep dish that was as satisfying as Pizzeria Uno's, when it still existed. (Any fellow MSPers out there have some suggestions for me? I haven't edible deep dish in, perhaps, five years... and yes I'm deperate!)
And to all you Chicagoans and New Yorkers out there, you are SPOILED! Great pizza on every-other corner. Even the terrible pizza is delicious...!
