Not to beat you up, but that is NOT NYC style pizza. As one person put it, it is just a national chain that is model to be "New York Pizza".

Who f'ing cares as long as it tastes good -- which is anywhere between Chicago and New York, north of I-70.

There's some great Chicago thin crust pizza places out there. Anybody ever try the italian beef thin crust?

After the club, Chicago thin crust, one of the mexican joints, or a Chicago dog is heaven...

I remember many a Monday night, riding home at 4am with a Chicago dog in hand leaving the House joint riding to some Felix Da Housecat.

Heaven

The Best Chicago Style pizza is on par with the Best NY Pizza, they just happen to be different styles. The one area where NY wins, is convenience; Chicago Pizza by the slice isnt really that great, where in NY its pretty much a culture. How often does somebody really have the time to sit down, order a whole pizza, and wait for it to cook (which at some Chicago place, could take up to 45min).

On a side note: Anybody ever notice how every Chicago pizza joint tends to serve drinks (usually Soda's) in those tall, red, frosted, plastic cups?

That's when you know you've found a good place -- it's like a calling card!
