If I could give this 5 stars for the pizza (exactly like the original!) but a 2 or 3 for the rest of the experience, I would. In their defense, it was opening weekend. BUT IT WAS OPENING WEEKEND! Why didn't they have more than...More

New location and pizza is perfect! Excellent rectangle slices of pizza from original cooking pans, and full round pies, original booths (some repainted), awesome seat inside the turret. Nice job on Panhandler's 2.0!

I am a FC native and have grown up eating at Panhandler's. A slice of pizza and a beer or iced tea at a good price. Thanks for the memories!

This is a walk-up, order, then sit-down restaurant with good choices. We were there for lunch, so had slice pizza with a salad (excellent salad for a pizza place). My pizza not as hot as I would have liked, but was quite tasty. Had the...More

What a great atmosphere! The first time we stopped in to panhandlers we came because I had a Saturday coupon for pizza and a pitcher, $25 bucks. I'm so glad we did! Cute checkered tablecloths, fire burning in the big grate, cozy booths with little...More

I have been going to Panhandlers for over 20 years. Top quality ingredients. Great Chicago style deep dish pizza with a killer Chicago style sauce. If you miss "Windy City" food, check it out.
