We placed our order in advance, and it still took 45 minute. Trust me, it is worth the wait. Now, some people don’t like Chicago-style, but if you are a true pizza lover, you will like this. Even when we got home the pizza was delicious!
Gino's has multiple locations, and you are bound to find one close by, but unfortunately, not near my hometown!

There is a full-service bar here, so it is sometimes a popular place for people to gather to watch the games. The beer is slightly overpriced, but the wine is a pretty good deal. I would suggest getting a carafe because the price is a lot cheaper for the number of glasses that you will be getting.
I know that you came for the pizza, but I would suggest getting the family-style salad to start off with. It is a bottomless bowl, so you can eat as much as you want, and the dressing is wonderful. It is a little tangy and refreshing but not overpowering. The salad consists of lettuce (a combination, but mostly iceberg), cucumbers, tomatoes, croutons, onions, and black olives. In addition, if you are looking for a starter, the mozzarella sticks and bruschetta aren’t half bad.
For pizza, get the deep dish; it is one of the best that Chicago has to offer. The crust is what makes this pizza a better offering than a lot of others in the area. It is a cornmeal crust (I believe) and not nearly as heavy as others that I have tasted. While this dinner will by no means be light, you don’t feel like you have eaten a rock after you have had a slice or two of the pizza. My favorite type of the pizza is the supreme, and I would suggest it to everyone. The pizza doesn’t get lost in the toppings, but there is a nice balance between the toppings, the sauce, and the cheese.
In addition to pizza, Gino’s East also has some decent entrées. Their lasagna and spaghetti are pretty good. But go for the pizza - it’s what everyone comes for.
