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.
Just had an office party. Aurelios dropped the ball on this one. Was quoted one price when we placed the order and at time of pick up we were given a more expensive price. Cashier said it was due to the extra toppings on the pizzas. How this happened is a mystery to me because the girl who took the order repeated it back to me verbatim. Part of our order was for three cheese and sausage pizzas. We were given three cheese only pizzas. When we complained, we were told the best they (Aurelio's) could do was make three new cheese and sausage pizzas and pick up the three cheese pizzas. Kind of hard to do when you have some forty people lined up to eat. I was never directed to the manager even though I asked at the beginning to talk to one..... I guess they were too busy to take my call. Customer service skills are lacking and for the next office party we will be looking for a new place. Anyone have any suggestions....
I was a total wedding bridezilla (i can admit it now!) during my wedding planning process. Prime Food Caterers rolled with the punches when I changed my mind a thousand and one times about the menu, they also gave great advice about our choices. With Eduardo and the team's help, the food and drink was the last thing on my mind during our special day; it was seamless. I can't thank them enough for their flexibility, creativity and friendliness. They never seemed agitated or annoyed with my requests. My mother and Eduardo even surprised us with something we would have never thought of-- but absolutely LOVED-- an ice cream sundae bar after we had wedding cake! I felt inclined to write a review about Prime Food's amazing service!
My family and I have been going here for years and while the service isn't always the best, the pizza never disappoints. We also usually order a large salad for the entire table and it's also very good. We order the deep dish with cheese and tomatoes (chunky sauce) on top of the pizza, which is how all their pizzas are made. We rarely order toppings because we love the cheese and tomatoes so much, but we have enjoyed the sausage a few times, as well as the pepperoni. The crust is flaky and well cooked each time and the cheese is flavorful and just the right texture. Definitely worth checking out, whether you're a Chicago native or out of towner.
I stopped in here on an unusually hot Saturday afternoon in June. I expected to get out of the heat, only to find they had the large overhead doors open, letting the heat and in. If people want to sit outside in the heat with traffic rushing by, let them. Why must they subject the rest of us to it? The noise level was high both from patrons and traffic. I ordered the individual pizza, which really was more of a snack than a meal. Not a good value. After I finished my pizza, I walked down to McDonalds on Chicago Ave and had a fish sandwich and hot fudge sundae!
We used to order from a nearby pizza (P), but they started putting less & less ingredients on their pizzas. We tried Doreen's and found it to be better. The crust is crispy & they put a good quantity of ingredients. They have daily specials including a large 16" pizza for $12 on wednesdays. They make a taco pizza thats loaded with meat, tomatoes, taco chips that gives you the taste of your pizza and taco, two comfort foods at once. We order from there at least twice a week. Their deliveries are fast & hot. They have a wide assortment of sandwiches and sides.
A pizza that is so overwhelming and tasty. I made the mistake by ordering the medium size Chicago style pizza. Just 2 slices filled me up...it's like your eating an Italian flavored pie. Some of the drawbacks is that the associates there have an attitude problem and you wait a century for your meal. One thing they are really fast on is making you pay up right after you eat. I guess if the food being incredible makes up for the other mishaps. Eat here before you die...you'll regret it if you don't.
My first time at 6978 I had heard a lot of good things about the soul food and was very anxious to try it. The atmosphere was very laid back with nice music in the background. The atmosphere was open and spacious but the table chairs were a little weak. The food took a little while to come but when it finally came I was very impressed. I love like soul food and I have eaten a lot of home cooked soul food and this was dead on.
This is Chicago style pizza period . Long before deep dish made people in the U.S. think that is the only kind they made here. And without a doubt my favorite, and I just consider best thin crust in the whole city, not just neighborhood. I actually think words can not describe how good it is. The restaurant itself, the service, and just about everything else on the menu that I tried is just excellent Chicago area cuisine.
This new restaurant is very clean and Spanish-stylish, with an open layout and bustling with activity. One pile of tapas plates and $90 later, I can share that the food is excellent -- the Gilda is a standout, a stuffed olive with anchovy on a skewer, see the picture -- but the service is still getting up to speed (they were very nice but had some trouble keeping the order straight.) All in all, I'll be coming back soon.
