A Chicago institution since 1950.
I am a pizza snob as I was born and raised in New Jersey with NJ and NY pizza.
One cannot even compare NJ/NY to Chicago pizza whether Deep Dish, thin, or thick since they are in completely different categories. I learned this a few years ago and to compare would not be fair. I ordered a 12 inch sausage and mushroom pie. Thin crust is GOOD and thank God it was not a cracker crust or cardboard with ketchup!! The sauce was decent and the cheese was real. I enjoyed the "9 pieces of paper" measurement cut in small squares, not slices, apparently a Chicago thing. One MUST appreciate the fact that Pat's is a family owned institution in a setting that probably has not changed much since opening day. I love and appreciate restaurants like this! The variety of beers was well appreciated.
