It’s time to man up. Sure it’s about 80 degrees back home, and it’s in the 30’s out here … and the wind makes it feel like your face is getting a rub down from a pineapple … but the streets are alive and the pizza is freaking unreal! Four words … totally, worth, it … boyeeeeee. I know it’s been pretty well documented, but I love myself some pizza … especially that of the Chicago persuasion. From Zachary’s to Pizano’s, we’ve dipped our GRUB-toe into some of the finest. But this time around, it was time to try one of the originals. So say hello to Pizzeria Uno … the mouth-watering and belly-rumbling Chicago pizzeria that started it all. Like a journey to the west wall, I have found the holy land … and my followers … it is delicious. Like all great GRUB-spots, the line is out the door as we arrive … but have no fear, because even though the wait is about an hour, it takes the bubbling pizza pie about that long to be whipped up from scratch, and they let you put in your order with your name … or vice versa. Hello I’m Medium Stuffed Spinach and Mushroom, table for … whatever you’d give me. Seriously, I’d eat it sitting cross-legged on the floor if it meant I got to shave five minutes off sinking my teeth into a slice of their … thick, sweet-and-savory, buttery-crusted, bursting with loads of toppings, cheese, and thick-chunked tomatoes … pizza pie. While we waited for our bounty, we took down a couple of pints of 312 and Honkers Ale from Goose Island, a Chicago brewery, which primes the belly for the insanity about to ensue. And that’s exactly what it was … absolute insanity. Let’s just say, Uno’s slice can throw down with any of the greats that The Good Grub has encountered. With a slightly sweeter sauce and crust, and toppings that are a little more packed-in and closer to the surface, each bite was bursting with flavor and brought a giant smile to our faces. Match that up with the old-school feel of the place, and our waitress Marty (aka Happy Gilmore’s Grandma … oh, now your backs going to hurt, because you just pulled landscaping duty) … and it was one of the top Grub-sessions yet. So make your pilgrimage to the corner of Ohio and Wabash, weave your way through the line of hungry patrons, and get ready to dive headfirst … directly into the deep dish.
