Surprisingly good deep dish outside Chicago. As a Chicago transplant, I'm used to the best, and this actually satisfies my deep dish craving. I've had one or two hitches with the service, but otherwise, it's hard to complain about the pizza. Reasonably priced for the amount of food, and living down the block makes it quite dangerous. If you're looking... More

My husband and I seated ourselves as there was no one around. After about 15 minutes we finally saw someone who worked there. I had to chase him down to ask about menus and ordering. He told me they were closing and only could take a takeout order. Since we were not heading home or somewhere else where we could... More

While at Indianapolis, during Bands of America Competition we had dinner at South of Chicago Pizza and Beef not once but twice! Their Italian beef was awesome. If you are from Chicago and looking for some beef and pizza (including) deep dish then I recommend this hole in the wall. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Happy eating!

Let me start by saying that I had heard great things about this place. My wife and I visited on a Thursday night. The place was about 1/3rd full. The beer was warm.... the mountains are supposed to be BLUE. I ordered a deep dish, Chicago style, and my wife ordered a thin crust pepperoni. We ordered a side of... More

It blows my mind that a company run by such rude people is still in business. You food has to be WAY better than that, to get away with terrible customer service.

High hopes that this would be as good as, if not better than Giordano's. Authentic, thick Chicago style "pie" should hold it's shape when cut. When brought to our table, it was evident the filling had slid down and away from the crust. When sliced, it just spread even further and was difficult to transfer to a plate. We ordered... More

If I could give less than 1 star I would. Never have I encountered such poor customer service by what I can assume was an owner or manager. I ordered online and when I asked at pick up if I could use a zoo book coupon the guy was so RUDE. He said he couldn't give me the refund b/c... More

We went for a late lunch and most of us had the buffet. Very good and they even brought out a pizza close to the closing time (close at 2:00 after lunch and re-open later for dinner). Sausage Bacon deep dish was my favorite. Good salad bar and drink included.
