The thin crust pizza was the best I ever had. There is a lot of cheese and it was served piping hot. The small pizza was so large my to go box will give me two more meals.

From deep dish Chicago style pizza to Italian beef sandwiches, this place is like a time warp from Chi-town. Plenty of Chicago sports memorabilia! Especially the Cubbies. The best place to go in Birmingham for a Goose Island, a slice, and watching the game.

We went here for dinner on a Saturday night and ordered a Chicago deep dish. It was enough for four of us with a piece leftover. You will have to wait about 40 minutes after you order but it’ll be worth it.

Have you ever wanted a pizza that's burnt on the bottom but the ingredients are still raw on the inside? Then Tortugas is for you! This pizza is garbage. The crust tastes like they stole the recipe from microwavable pizza. I've never had a pizza,...More

My family and I love this place! It’s one of our regular restaurants we eat at. I’m super picky with my pizza, and their cheese thin crust is the best! I also recommend the Hawaiian pizza and the lasagna. Friendly people and friendly atmosphere.
