Home Run Inn’s three Chicago pizza restaurants and six in the Chicagoland area give you plenty of places to try our authentic homemade pizza. Or enjoy our frozen pizza made with the same all-natural ingredients, homemade sauces and sausage without a single additive or preservative. It’s how we’ve done it ever since we opened our original pizzeria on Chicago’s South Side. Consider it our family’s way of bringing our history home to your family.

A great thin Pizza

This is some of the best pizza I have ever eaten and it was done to perfection, but I still have a hard time getting here because of the neighborhood is less than desirable.

Kudos from Minnesota

I have never eaten in the actual restaurant, but my first choice in the frozen pizzas up here in Minnesota is Home Run Inn. Everyone that I have had try it is hooked. If ever in Chicago I'm sure to visit the restaurant.

Best Strawberry Daquiri's

I grew up eating and loving Home Run Inn's Pizza, I moved to Minneapolis, MN 16 years ago and resulted into eating Domino's or Pizza Hut which resulted in me making home made pizzas. Until recently I was told that Cub Foods grocery store sold frozen Home Run Inn pizzas, I was very happy. So now I can have it here in Minnesota and of course when I go back to Illinois to visit, we always have the original.

Best Family orientated atmosphere & food around

I've been going to Home Run Inn Pizza on 31st street since I was a little girl. My father would take us faithfully every Sunday before we would visit my grandparents. I've had many many many Home Run Inn pizzas and every single one that I've ever eaten has been the best around. Sure I've tried others, but nothing compares to Home Run Inn! They load on the toppings & use premium ingredients. You have to try their frozen pizza too, it's absolutely the best. The Perrino's Deep dish frozen pizza is high quality and taste great! Great customer service, all friendly people (maybe because they're a family run business). They care about everyone who patronizes their restaurant.

It's Unique

I have to admit HOME RUN INN is the BEST I ever ate, it just taste different then all the rest and the crust is to die for it's not like any I ever tasted. A friend from England said this pizza would make him move to Chicago and the guy who said the crust was chewy & wet must have dropped it in his beer or something.

Nothing Else Better

this place is the best in chicago
the crust excellent= lightly toasted
the sauce excellent=not at all bitter, just the right seasonings
the cheese excellent=great flavor and lots of it!!!
i have been eating this fantazmagorical pizza for 25yrs and will be for 25 more
i have read a couple of bad reviews here and have come to the conclusion that there are aliens living with us here on earth and they are trying to destroy home run inn pizza with bad reviews and let me tell you it's gonna take more than afew words because:THE TRUTH IS OUT THERE.

It's the best pizza I've ever had.

I grew up Chicago, moved away 30 years ago, and Home Run Inn is still the best pizza I've found in all my travels throughout the U.S. My family and I still look forward to it when we are in Chicago.

Best Pizza in town!

My husband is from Alabama and the first time I ever brought him to Chicago with me we ate at Home Run Inn. Now everytime we come home to visit he wants to go there. He says it's probably the best pizza he's ever had. I highly recommend Home Run Inn to anyone who's an avid pizza lover. Trust me, you will not be disappointed!

Best Pizza in town

I live in Ohio now, but I grew up near Home Run Pizza, just over the 31st bridge and every Friday night my uncle would go and pick up pizza for everyone. Every time I go back home to visit, we eat Home Run Pizza. My sister and I have even made a trip to Chicago just to eat pizza and come back the same day, that is how great it is! Some may remember when it was a very small place and usually we would just enter the bar area and pick up our pizza to take home. Now it is much larger. At one time I picked up 10 par baked pizzas to bring back to Ohio. Can't wait to make another trip back.

how great home run inn is

I have been going here since i was two or three. it was great food then and its great food now. Others try too copy it but dont come close. If you think deep dish is the best, maybe you need too try HOME RUN INN pan pizza. I'd go as far as to say that its the best pan pizza in the world. forget deep dish try home run inn pan pizza. thank you for reading.

HRI

I have grown up eating HRI Pizza. And I must say it is still some of the best tasting pizza around. While the location and the ambiance of the 31st location may be difficult for many (i.e., gangbangers arguing a few tables away)I would suggest you order ahead, probably not on weekend day, and take your pizza to go. I have had hit and misses as far as how the pizza tastes at the HRI in Darien, but I don't hold that against them. Sometimes, it wasnt to my taste. Overall this pizza is genuine and worth the fuss.

I hate to write this...but,

I live in the neighborhood and I don't take my family this Home Run Inn.We take our kids to the other chains out in the suburbs and you WILL taste the difference.This is the pizza we remembered growing up.Try to go around 12pm to 4pm if you choose to go to this one.The buffet is between 11am to 2pm I believe.There is a very busy park across the street and most parking is taken up by the park people.If your are going to pick up a pizza...park at the west lot across the street and walk the few hundred yards.
