Nice local joint for catching a game on their many screens and grabbing a bite to eat. I recommend going with the pizza.

4.25 Stars. This was our second visit picking up and bringing the pizza home. Nancy and I ordered the "Michael's Special" which is cheese, sausage, mushroom, green pepper and onion. An important point worthy of note is that it was as consistently good this time as it was last time. This being the case we felt a review appropriate. We ordered a medium (14 in?) thin crust and there was enough left for another person had one been present to join us. Everything was fresh and the pizza sauce was especially good with a characteristic signature of sweet properly proportioned.
Though the title states Pizzeria before Tavern if you didn't know better you would mistake it for a sports bar, with a long bar and over 20 large screen television sets positioned all over the premises.
For me to rate 4 stars - particularly with all the pizza places that abound in Chicago is unusual, if the drinks are as good as the pizza I can see myself hanging out here on the less than frequent occasions I have some free time.

This really is one of the most underrated pizza joints in the city. People can talk about all of the namebrand places(Giordano's or Gino's), but their thin crust is my favorite. Thier sauce really is what seperates thiers from everyone elses. I am a regular there, but the staff treats everyone as if they had been going there for years. I live in Cicero now, but I still make the hike for their food and good times. Great menu! I haven't had any bad experience there. You have to check it out. It will be well worth your time.
I'M SO GLAD THAT I DISCOVERED MICHAEL'S. THEIR PIZZA IS ALWAYS HOT AND TASTY WITH A DELICIOUS THIN CRUST AND THE BEST CHEESE. WHETHER ORDERING OUT OR DINING IN, THE SERVICE IS FRIENDLY AND THE PIZZA IS ALWAYS HOT. IF YOU LEAVE IN THE BOYS TOWN/UPTOWN AREA, DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND CHECK OUT THIS GREAT SPORTS BAR/PIZZARIA!

Pizza is good delivered but its 5stars if you eat it there. The guys who run it seem pretty nice and service is pretty good also. Also, should be a better place to hang out once the smoking ban takes effect. Not a good place to pick up chicks just a good local hangout to eat pizza and have a few beers

My fiance insisted that I try out his favorite pizza place. I think he meant his favorite place to watch sports and eat pizza. The pizza was fine but the draw if you like sports is a tv every other 2 feet. I wouldn't order the pizza for takeout - there are other options - but, can see why a guy would want to hangout here.
