Old Chicago Pizzeria
Posted by Todd on 12/18/2006
Most of the dishes left me feeling underwhelmed and the delivery service is pretty awful, but for swinging by and getting a full meal in pretty short order, Old Chicago is not a bad choice. The menu has a good variety of items, though the best bets are generally the instantly recognizable options. The pizza, though pretty greasy even for a place like this, is quite tasty. The salads are decent, but the pasta comes pretty wet, making the sauce extra messy. Definitely avoid the seafood. In-restaurant service is good, but it only takes one smoker to cloud up the joint for everyone.

I live nearby and order from here on a regular basis. The food is good, solid but not overly imaginative Italian fare. There are quesadilla and wrap offerings (a nod to the increasing Hispanic presence of the area, perhaps.) The Buffalo Wings are not fried but baked, a nice touch for calorie counters/weight watchers. The seafood offerings are on a par with Arthur Treacher's...pass em' by. The sit-down eating facilities are well-lit and clean with attentive service in a small setting (perhaps 8 - 10 booths). Overall, I find Old Chicago a decent place to order carry out food from and to grab a bite if you happen to want something quick and a tad more filling than traditional fast food.
