Nobody can beat Sanfratello'slocated in Glenwood. Get there early because there is always a crush at the door. I like the thin crust best.TomC

The absolute best, not just in Chicago, but in the whole USA is Nick and Vito's at 85th and Pulaski. I have had pizza all over Chicago and in most parts of the US, and nothing compares. I can't wait to get up there again.

My comments from an earlier topic on pizza..... On the southwest side there was Buddy's at 79th and Hermitage and Onesti's on 71st just east of California (still there, but undoubtedly under different ownership). Back in the day, virtually all neigherhood pizza on the southside was thin crust. I don't recall ever having deep dish until I got old enough to drive and would take a date to Gino East,Uno's or Due's. In fact, to this day thin crust remains far more common and popular out south. Fox's on Western, Rosangelos at 95th and California and Vito & Nick's (very thin) and several others still make great thin crust pizza. I've got nothing against deep dish, but it kills me when the media always refers to deep dish when talking about Chicago style pizza.

I actually worked at Onesti's in the early 70's but cannot recall the name of the owner. It was Italian, but not Onesti. He lived just east of 71st and Western and was into stock car racing.

Vito and Nick's, later just Vito's, at 5640 S. Ashland, not the same people as 85th and Pulaski also had great pizza. It was where I learned to like it. I always kind of turned my nose up at it, until 1 halowee when we went in there and they gave us slices of cheese pizza. I was converted.

One of the owner's was always in the front window making the pies. They used sliced Mozzerella, not the crumbled stuff in use today, homemade bulk sausage, their own sauce and other freshe stuff. When done, they would remove it from the oven to the work table and cut it with a large shears. No pizza cutter.

I think they only served pizza, mostaciolli and spaghetti, and sandwihces like beef and sausage. No alcohol. They did not deliver, but we only lived 2 doors down from them

The best? Palermo's on 63rd & Hamlin! Unfortunately due to relocating to the suburbs I haven't had theirs in 13 years! They've had some of their relatives open locations in the various SW suburbs but by far the original owners of 63rd made the best!!!

YOU ARE SO RIGHT ABOUT NATES BARBER SHOP AND WEBERS POOL HALL ACROSS THE STREET AND RICKIES RESTAURANT WHERE ALL THE POLITICAL DEALS WERE DONE BEFORE THEY WENT TO COURT.

My favorite used to be Santucci's which used to be located at about 60th and Cicero, then next was Chesdan's in Brighton Park also gone now (relocated to suburb's). I guess now it would be Danny's Pizza on Archer and Menard or Obbie's also on Archer a little further west.

I grew up in Burbank IL, and my all-time favorite pizza is still and always will be Phil's Pizza on 89th & Ridgeland in Oak Lawn. Superb toppings, perfect sauce, and lots of cheeese makes this pizza a true Chicago area classic. Try it one time and see what i mean! (The sign says "Since 1970" , but i thought it opened a littler later than that) Enjoy!
