I'm all about Aurelio's thin crust in the south suburbs. That stuff is great, I was raised on it.
I love Aeurillios :cheers: . Definently my favorite.


I'd like to ask the Aeurillio fans: is it as good in the other locations as it is in Homewood.

I've never had it from there, but I live in the western suburbs (Berkeley, next door to Elmhurst but in Cook County) and the Aeurillios pizza here is fucking awesome. im hungry.


My dad tried to get me on Lou Malnati's, thin crust not deep dish, but I hated it and still do.

^ who the hell gets thin-crust from lou's?

lou's is about 1 thing and 1 thing only..... the sausage disc. (oh and the butter crust is also kinda mind-blowing as well ;) )
sure they're famous for deep dish and rightfully so, but they make a damned good thin, as well.

Does anyone like Gulliver's on Howard for deep dish? It's one of those places that's been around for a hundred years. I haven't been there for the last 75!!! They had a great deep dish, but very, very tomato-y. Still the same from anyone who knows?

my dad hates any pizza that's not thin crust, so growing up I never got to try Lou's deep dish. i'll have to give the sausage disc a try.

No. The Aurelio's in Homewood is the best in my opinion (some of it may be nostalgia though, I recalling having birthday parties there in the 1980's). But I've only had the Aurelios in Chicago Heights and Northwest Indiana to compare it to, neither which were quite up to par, but certainly pretty tasty.

Would it gross you guys out to know that years ago, we went with some friends, their kids and ours, to Nancy's in Niles (around Golf and Greenwood, near Golf Mill...I'm not sure if they are still there).

We ordered pizza (surprise). When it came, one of the kids asked "what's that", pointing to an ingredient we didn't order. It appeared to be a black olive. It wasn't. Olives have never been known to walk on their own 6 feet. Or have sibblings.

Understandably our stomach's we're turning and our appetite pretty well destroyed. But the clincher was how the management wanted to handle things: to take the cost of the pizza off of our bill and charge us for the rest (or graciously offering to make us another pizza!).

Needless to say we let them know that in no uncertain terms we weren't paying a fucking cent. My biggest regret: not having reported this to Niles health officials.

It took awhile to get my taste buds receptive for pizza...but never again at Nancy's. If I ever did go back, however, I'd bring a can of Raid with me.

I've never heard of Malnati's before, yet it's recieved enough votes to make me really curious. Is there a Malnati's close to Hyde Park or the Loop? I don't particularly want to take a long excursion for pizza from a place I haven't heard about before... :D
