Yep, that's the one. FWIW, we just found out tonight that they're originally from Chicago

We have seen that restaurant on 72 when we drive to Russell Cave or Chattanooga. Wondered about it? I guess we will try it sometime. Also, how does someone from Chicago end up in the rural area of ALabama? Always curious.

I've not found any here I like. I don't get the love affair with Torturas. It IS good, but it's not great. Everything else there (pasta-wise) falls flat.
I need to try Terry's at Star Market.

My parents went to Chicago in the late 50's for jobs. Many migrated back south over time.

One thing I've learned, fans of St Louis pizza usually don't go for New Haven style pizza. Same for Chicago style, but a bit less so.

If it were in my means I would love to bring a Cecil Whitakers down here. But Imo's would do in a pinch.

We had a Chicago-style deep-dish pizza Thursday night at Good Fellas in Decatur. If you like that style pizza, I recommend it. However, I wouldn't go on a Friday night - it was PACKED! But very pleasant on Thursday night, sitting outside on their new deck.

We ordered Canadian bacon and (sweet) Italian sausage. Fresh...good!

Pizzeria and Tavern - Home

Oddly enough, after decades of NO Italian food in Decatur (other than pizza), we are now getting several restaurants. Vittone's, across from the Princess Theatre on 2nd Avenue, a new Chicago-style pizza place going in on Bank Street (still under construction, though, in the old Decatur Band Instruments building), and I saw yet another one on south U.S. 31, where Gerald's used to be - I think the name was Francesca's, or something similar.

And they're saying that now that Decatur has approved Sunday sales, we'll be more likely to get an Olive Garden. I know, I know, many people scoff at OG, but personally I adore it. So sue me.

I'm not much for Chicago style, but I'm tempted to make a run to Decatur this week.

Really, me neither. I don't care for "sweet" pizza...that's what Chicago style tastes like to me. But it's probably worth a trip for those who do like it.

FYI, Good Fellas is closed on Monday.

Ha, I was about to post about Good Fellas.

This place has AUTHENTIC Chicago pizza. (The sauce is on the very top) Very reasonably priced and I highly recommend it.

Nice folks running the joint too. I wish I worked near there so I could hit up the lunch buffet.
