Chicago Syle Pizza?

Looking for Chicago Style pizza in Santa Monica or the Westside. Nothing fancy, just GOOD. Thanks for all your suggestions!

  1. Does it exist on the westside, I'm sure it does... is it any GOOD... No... Chicago Style is just something that is hard to come by for some reason. It seems like all the Chicago transplants I meet go into Marketing and not the restaurant biz! :P Here's a recent posts about my favorite "Chicago Style" places.

    Despite finding these Gems, the best continues to be ordering pies from Lous directly... which I would do more often if the darn thing didn't end up costing something almost $40 per pie! :P
