Very sadly, this fabulous restaurant is closing in July to make way for condos. There are other Father & Son Pizza restaurants in the Chicagoland area, but we got married here (a wonderful Halloween wedding in the banquet rooms), so this location is special to us. The owners are charitable, supporting nonprofits in the City, and the food and service... More

This is a good choice for brunch - with omelettes made to order, fruit, hot dishes, cold salads, and pastries. It's about $20 per person and worth it if you like a variety. This Father & Son location is sadly slated to close to make room for condos. We'll have to try their other locations.

I've been coming here since I was kid. The Gorgonzola Red Onion and Candied Walnut pie is where it's at. And always end the meal with churros

A great place to have a great meal with ample parking. The bar is fantastic. We were with a large group and we have not experienced a individual table. But the Pizza was great and the service was superb

We have been going to Father & Son Pizza for over 20 years and it remains one of our favorite restaurants. We usually go for the pizza (several styles to choose from) but the rest of their menu is good also. Food is served hot and as ordered. Prices are reasonable. From the time we enter until we leave, everyone... More

We have been going to this restaurant for years and, although, they are sometimes slow on service, for the most part I would say the service was good and the food and pizza is delicious. There is ample parking and the broasted chicken is great. You won't be disappointed.

Restaurant is perfect for grabbing a quick and casual meal and the ice cubes in the urinal in the men's restroom is fantastic (and adds a nice touch of class). As for the food takeout is simple with a special counter for pickup orders and any type of thin crust pizza and salad combination is perfect.

We love this restaurant, and not just for the free parking. They serve the tastiest pizza (thick, thin and flatbread - my favorite). The garlic oregano chicken, almond crusted tilapia and eggplant Parmesan are our big favorites. The menu is large and diverse with reasonable prices. The waitstaff is friendly and eager to please. Join their free frequent diner program... More

Best thin crust pizza in the world!! Yum! Thursday is Martini day. Martini's were $6. Such a deal. Other drink specials different days. Been to this restaurant many times but only have had the pizza as an entree because it s so good. The Calamari appetizer was also very good. Nice size portion for 2 to share.
