This place was a joke,although very busy the food was no where close to authentic. I'm from the Southside and went in with high hopes. Right away I knew we were in for trouble,but i drove all day and was starving. California doesn't know pizza,but i already new that. My prize was to be a combo sandwich dipped with mozz... More

Unbelievable.....really......UNBELIEVABLE! You will have a difficult time stopping and not devouring the entire pizza. We had the "Tony's Special Deep Dish with added Pepperoni".....Delicious. We are lucky to live close, but I tell you I would drive 100+ miles just to have this incredible pizza.

I heard about Tony's and decided to give it a try. I found their deep dish pizza to be amazing. They take 45 min to an hour to cook (depending on how busy they are), so call in advance to get your order in.

Been here in CA 25+ years after having moved from Chicago and have been searching for that one perfect Chicago Deep Dish. Well, without a doubt, this is it. There's no other place that even compares. B Vlach

Everything is made fresh. So it takes a while to come out.But oh so worth the wait! Large Portions. Nothing Better in town. If you're planning on lunch, call ahead it may take 45 minutes.

Our family has been going to Tony's for many years. They are a family-run, small shop in a little strip at the southeast corner of Placentia Avenue and Bastanchury Road. There are a few tables if you choose to eat there. Otherwise, call ahead at least 30 minutes before you want to pick up your order, since everything is freshly... More

The place is small but clean. I have to be honest in that I don't usually go for Deep Dish pizza but I do love a great tasting dough with lots of cheese. The way the cheese and the crust come together are incredible. Like cheese bread with toppings on top. Not too oily. I am getting hungry just thinking... More

This place is absolutely THE place to go in Orange County for Chicago-style pizza and pasta. The owners are great local people who have been in business for years. They have a very loyal clientele base who keep the place hopping.
