Two recent articles that could be called "deep dish is basically for tourists".

Not mentioned in the articles, Marie's Tavern and Liquors on Lawrence Av, it's a classic that's been around since the 40's.

Chicago is an awful city. It is plagued by violence, corruption and extreme racism/segregation.

It's definitely not my cup of tea and I would never recommend it. NYC and the DC Metro area are far better destinations. Yes, they are pricier, but the food, attractions and diversity are much better.

Oh c'mon, Chicago in July is paradise!

Based on a recommendation from a friend who lived in Chicago all his life until recently, we went to Pequods Pizza.. I was more a Pan Pizza than a deep dish, but, WOWWWWWWW was it good.

We just returned from a Midwest trip. We had a great time in Chicago.
