Hey Backintheville2,

I'm not sure why that is. We have more of a medium crust, I would say. We're definitely not paper thin like some NY style pizza is, and we're not deep dish like Chicago style either. Have you had our pizza before? If not, I think you may find what you're looking for.

Have a great day!

I grew up in the Q.C. I've lived in several different cities in the U.S. I have never found pizza to be as good as what you can get in the Q.C. I was just home recently for RAGBRAI. I had to stop at my favorite pizza joint.

1. Frank's Pizza - nothing compares
2. Harris Pizza - very good, not quite as good as Frank's
3. Happy Joe's - BLT is my favorite, but taco is yummy too

Decorah is about three hours away from the Quad Cities.

I know some people don't like Quad Cities style pizza, but my favorites are the places that make that kind of pizza (Harris, Wise Guys, etc.).

At least. But owing at least partially to the fact that this thread is now 5 pages long, the subject has long since expanded to include favorite pizza places outside of the Quad Cities.

I figured I would add my favorite, which also happens to be pretty famous in the entire NE quadrant of Iowa.

Ok, The best pizza of all is from the "Town Clock Inn" in Downtown Dubuque. For the cheapest pizza close to Harris- Uncle Bill's in the Quad Cities. Town Clock Inn Pizza is deep dish but not really deep. And served in your own personal pan at your table. Along with spatula. Well worth the drive. Plus, river museum,casino, and Galena,IL 15 min away. Can't beat it for a weekend. They're closed Sunday's and don't open till 4 p.m. on Sat.
