    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Intimate and friendly. Unique pizza variation.
    Cons: Unremarkable flavor and quality.

    Summary: I have spent most of my life in Chicago and somehow managed to miss this 30 year old institution. Unfortunately it is likely I will not be back for another 30 years. It's not that the pizza is bad it's just that it is so uneventful. Let's start with ... read more

    Pros: great food, makes you think your in an old bar

    Summary: So my parents and I were walking down Michigan ave, and an idea popped into my head "let's check out oven grinders!" So we walk over and we see a huge cluster and my dad says, "Oh man, that's the line." So I go in and ask the guy inside how long the wait ... read more

    Pros: Affordable, excellent quality, deliciously addictive
    Cons: Extreme waits, cash only

    Summary: I shouldn't even be telling anyone else to go to the Chicago Pizza and Oven Grinder company, because the last thing the place needs is more business, and the last thing I need is another hour tacked on to my wait. But you've gotta go. This ... read more

    Pros: food quality and service excellent!
    Cons: crowded

    Summary: Unique pot pie pizzas served individually. Loaded with fresh ingredients and cheese. Salads are out of this world. Bread is very thin with an excellent blend of spices. You will not be able to stop eating it. You can make a meal out of salad and bread ... read more

    Pros: The beer's cold
    Cons: I have to drink lots of it to get through the ordeal

    Summary: Chicago Pizza and Oven Grinder once again proves that any restaurant can succeed as long they serve enormous, oversized portions at a reasonable price. No matter that the food is suspect....as long as you have leftovers for a couple of days. However, is ... read more

    Pros: Offbeat charm and great food
    Cons: The wait can be excruciating

    Summary: Small and dark, the Chicago Pizza & Oven Grinder Company is nonetheless one of the best places to eat in the Chicago....IF you can stand the wait. This place seems to be crowded at every hour of the day, but even more so during the evening and on ... read more
