Killing time until our train left, we stopped here on a Saturday afternoon. Since there was a wait for a table, we found two empty stools at the bar. After a few minutes, the waiter, who was plenty busy, got us menus and took our drink order. The bruschetta had a balsamic vinaigrette for the diced tomatoes. One unexpected ingredient was the layer of fresh mozzarella, for a caprese touch. The bread was nicely toasted but probably not rubbed with garlic as per legit bruschetta. It was mostly not as loud as you might expect, but there was an occasional crash from a moody bus boy who was not feeling the love.

After researching for the best deep dish pizza in Chicago I decided to go to Giordano's. I wasn't let down, walked in and seated at the bar quickly without wait.

I ordered an Angry Orchard apple cider and some cheesy garlic bread which was very good and came with marinara to dip the bread in. For the meal I went with the meat and more meat stuffed pizza. Amazing and full of cheese and meat, great flavor and crust was even awesome. I will be back again to try the other popular deep dish pizzas!

A group of us are at this location at dinner time on a Friday evening. The service was good and fast and the staff was very friendly.

The food was as good as ever. For a busy Friday night the pizzas came out as expected, the Chicago deep dish style usually takes at least 45 minutes. Quality was great

Just as a word of caution for anyone who hasn't had Chicago style deep dish pizza, do not order the sizing you would order at a national chain such as Pizza Hut or Papa Johns. We had three adults split a small deep dish and we were all stuffed by the end. Even if you're hungry, count on 2 slices per person maximum. It is easy to over-order and end up with way too much food. It also helps with the pricing, while $26 for a small pizza would seem ridiculous, just remember that it can completely feed 3 adults, so $8+ a piece is actually a good deal.

I enjoyed Giordano's when we ate there, it had a lot of flavor and a good amount of toppings, It was no Uno's but it was still good. Had more of a chain feel than UNO did, but it was still a great time, wait time was about an hour for a pizza and that was a bit of a let down.
