Although I prefer thin crust…

For my first Chicago-style pizza experience, I’ve decided on Lou Malnati’s if not simply for its claim to be the home of the BEST Chicago-style deep dish pizza in the world…

“If you love a buttery, flakey crust, sweet and tangy tomatoes, gooey mozzarella cheese, perfectly seasoned sausage, and other fresh ingredients- you’ve come to the right place.  We pride ourselves on making each handmade pizza just the way you like it.”

Chicago-style deep dish pizza: heartiest style, knife and fork, dough –> cheese –> toppings –> sauce

Family-owned and operated- following a long and rich history- Lou’s is celebrating its 39th anniversary this year so it’s sure to be a treat! And even better news, I’ve already secured my date– who also prefers thin crust.. Sure to be an adventure for the both of us!

2. Ed Debevic’s

On my last visit to Chicago as I was driving to my hotel, everyone in the car started raving when we passed Ed Debevic’s.. “Ugh, we haaave to go to Ed Debevic’s while we’re here,” “I’ve been there!” “Me too!” “Who hasn’t been to Ed Debevic’s?” And that’s when I realized, I have never been to the famous Ed Debevic’s. Devastating. And so number two on the must see list: Ed Debevic’s.

While I do not know a whole lot about the famous burger joint, I do know that like a scene from Happy Days, the 50s style Ed Debevic’s features delicious diner food, from shakes to burgers. Beyond that, the staff are outrageously entertaining, rudeness being the most interesting facet of their character.

On top of everything, the mouthwatering menu is enough to tempt anyone: Chili, burgers, wieners, salads, sandwiches, fries, rings, one of the most amazing dessert lists I’ve ever seen, and “fountain creations” to name a few.

And now, I’m ready to book a plane ticket to Chicago and enter a food coma soon after arriving.
