Well I may be a bad person to ask then, because any time I've gone for pizza that touts itself as being "Chiagco-Style", I don't like it. Too thick and gooey. New York style maybe? The thinner the better, though my husband disagrees.

I agree! We ate the pizza in Chicago and found the crust WAY too sweet. I prefer the thin crust. Cracker-thin and crunchy!

Donato's in Decatur was so awful it shut down.

I like the New York style, New Haven style or the sort of mixed New Orleans Style

Big Ed's is on the Parkway, just south of Home Depot/Costco. I tried it and was really hoping to like it, but I swear it tasted like DiGiorno frozen pizza. They also committed one of the cardinal pizza sins, they used canned mushrooms on the pizza. Nothing screams low quality ingriedients like canned mushrooms IMO.

Sarges Dad: I never tried Terry's while it was around. I have only had the one's you take home and cook from Star. They are OK. I'm looking forward to trying it fresh from their oven once they have the oven up and running at the Five Points Star Market, maybe it will be better.

I'm also a NY style pizza fan myself. Chicago style is ok on occasion, but it is a bit much to eat regularly.

Funny, I remember it being good, but then olds timer has probably set in.. and that was back in the 60s when we probably didn't know better.

Thanks for the tip. I'm a bit skeptical about Ohio pizza, very, very thin, near cracker-like crust is what I've experienced in Columbus and Cincinnati, is it similar?

I love Big Ed's! I think they might make the best pizza in town. I don't know much about "styles" of pizza, but Big Ed's makes a tasty pizza. And it's a family owned and run business. I have never noticed any low quality toppings when I've gone.
