You can’t go to Chicago and not have deep dish pizza, it’s basically the law. I usually prefer thin crust pizzas, but I was willing to make an exception for cultural immersion when I visited Chicago. I googled “best Chicago pizza” and was completely overwhelmed by the choices and the strong feelings on the matter, so I asked a friend and she recommended Giordano’s. Done! I went with my boyfriend after a long day of sightseeing to guarantee maximum hunger, and we split a pie. Wow, what a gut buster! I’m no slouch when it comes to cheese, but we were in a full-on food coma afterward. So worth it though!
