MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Pizza pilgrims continue to make the trek to the original location of this renowned deep-dish chain, where a 45-minute wait is the norm. However, solo diners may breathe easy as they can order personal pies from a walk-up counter. The walls, scribbled with years of graffiti, are nearly as iconic as the high-walled pies themselves, whose crusts get their signature crunch from cornmeal and searing-hot metal pans with two inch-high sides. Filled with heaps of mozzarella and toppings like the "Meaty Legend" lineup of spicy pepperoni, Italian sausage and both Canadian and regular bacon before getting sauced, it's hard for some to eat more than two wedges here. Nonconformists can of course opt for thin-crust pies, gussied up with the likes of roasted red peppers.
