Best deep dish pizza in Chicago?

My husand and I are visiting Chicago next week and are looking forward to trying authentic, Chicago deep-dish pizza. Any suggestions for where we should dine?
Thank you!!

  1. My personal favorites are Lou Malnati's and Pizzera Due

    1. My favorite has always been the original Pizzeria Uno. Others are good, but none quite as good!

        1. Lou Malnatis on Wells or Wellington, Pizzeria Due on Wabash, and Gino's East on Rush street are tops. Do not try the Due or Gino's satellite locations as they are a terrible representation of the original.

            I think Amoncada means don't go to the Uno's satellites otherwise known as Uno's Chicago Grill. And I wholeheartedly agree!!

            1. re: abf005

              Have you tried the deep dish at Gino's East on Lincoln and Diversey? It's truly disgusting stuff!

                Nope, never been to that one, and thanks for the warning!!

                But it can't possibly be worse than the Gino's East Liberty-vile location!! That place gets my vote for top 10 worst deep dish pizza's in Chicagoland, right after the Gurnee Uno's Chicago Bar(f) & Grill. Has everyone else noticed how the chain abomination of Uno's conveniently left out the word "Pizza" in its name??

          2. I agree, Pizza Uno, Pizza Due or Lou Malnati's, those are great!. Every visitor we have in town HAS to go there and they all loved it. Just a Problem, take your time and be patient, becuase they are always packed, you'll wait to be seated, so order your pizza wheen you're in the waiting list, don't order once you're seated, because that will add anther 30 minutes to your wait.
