My Favorite Pizza

Thanks to my Aunt way back when CPOG first opened in 1972, I was 11 years of age and now 50 and still is my favorite place.\r I have brought many family members and lots of friends to try something new. Back in time they sold 1 & 2 pound pizza's. Now it's 1/2 and 1 pound pizza's. Order the Chef salad, drizzle some poppy seed dressing and a spoonful of garlic dressing, mix and eat. Can't beat it. 1/2 pound meat sauce ... view more

LOVE pizza and oven grinder

I have been coming here since I began visiting Chicago. It is such a fun place to go with friends. The twist on traditional Chicago pizza is what I love - the actual pizza pie. SO good. The antipasta salad is also a must.

I've loved this place for 24 years!

I have been going to this place with my family for my whole life. everyone I bring there loves it too!\r \r You MUST try the mediterranean bread WITH the antipasta salad. The key is the two homemade dressings (yes they sell bottles for you to take home) \r creamy garlic and sweet poppyseed.\r mix them together and it's perfection! \r Out of the dozens of visits,, I've only ordered the grinders once.\r We go for the p... view more

Cash Only, Get Real

The filthy mitt to remove the pizza was disgusting. We tried to overlook that and ate it. Not taking charge cards limited our spending and that was a good thing. Never again. So many better places.

Chicago Pizza Pie and Oven Grinder Company is one of the most unique places in Chicago to eat. It's cozy and the food is wonderful and affordable. The pizza is unbelieveable, and the salad is great too. When I lived there, I tried to go at least once every few months. I am writing this, because value is so miportant these days, and this place really offers just that. So does the other fave. mentioned in a previous re... view more

Best Pizza in Chicago

My husband and I were at Oven Grinder last Saturday night and had great food. We were there early, but really didn't have to wait too long. The Mediterranean Bread and Pizza were to die for! The pizza is simple, but has such good flavor. It is something in the cheese. I think the atmosphere is great. We cant wait until our next trip to Chicago and Oven Grinder

Always a great experience, worth the wait!

This restaurant is one of my favorites! Yes, we always have to wait about 15-30 minutes for a table, but it's always worth it; and, doesn't consistently waiting for a reasonable amount of time prove that the place it popular/well liked by patrons and efficiently run by its staff? The food is unique and always delicious-I LOVE the bread!! And as for some people saying that this place is too crowed and cramped, lighten... view more

Skip the Pizza thing, Grinders OK!

Pizza part gets 1 star 2 stars for originality. The Grinders get 2-3 stars. Ambiance gets 2 stars. We went to this self named pizza place because of the raving reviews on this website and others. I am familiar with the city and it's many and varied restaurants. Now to all the raving reviews I have to wonder A. What are these people smoking or B. These people wouldn't know good food if it fell out of the sky and did a... view more

Favorite Restaurant in Chicago!

I have recently moved to Chicago and was recommended this restaurant from a friend and it is FANTASTIC!! The ambiance is wonderful. You feel as if you are in a mountain town in Aspen...very cozy and cottage like. The food is absolutely delicious...from the salads to the Pizza Pies (what they are known for) is a must visit. I have already been 3 times in the past month! Also, the price points are extremely afford... view more
