Help! Heading to Chicago looking for Papa Del's like pizza
« on: July 15, 2009, 01:44:29 PM »
So I'm heading to Chicago in a couple of weeks for business.  I won't have time to head down to Champaign for Papa Del's  :'(.  I've tried a couple of the big name Pizza joints in Chicago but have never been quite satisfied.  Can anyone provide recommendations on the best pizza in Chicago that comes close to Papa Del's deep dish?

Better yet, has Papa Del's ever opened up a branch in Chicago?  If not, they should.  All of the ex-Illini love would make for a pretty good business.

Thanks!

I have never tried Papa Dels, so can't give you a comparison. But I recently tried Burt's Place and really enjoyed it. Very unique and entertaining to say the least.

On the other hand, not deep dish but Great Lake was off the charts delicious and may be the best pizza I ever tried. And I don't give high praise like that often.
