This was our 2nd time having a large party at the 12700 S. Kedzie Ave. location. Unlike our 1st experience last year, Beggars did an overall poor and unacceptable job with our 2017 party. As instructed by their party coordinator we arrive at 12:30 for decorating for our 1:00 party. Having dropped our tablecloths off the day prior we expected... More

I was extremely pleased with a catering order I placed with Sue today. I had an Inservice with 15 healthcare professionals here locally and the food was on-time, hot, and delicious. Had three big pizzas, salad, a pasta dish, drinks, and cookies. Sue was wonderful to work with and you can't beat the quality and price.

Good value lunch. Not fantastic but good value. Pizza, salads and pasta, fried chicken, fish and a selection of sides. The price versus food choices makes this very good.

There are so many pizza parlors in the Chicago area that you are bound to find at least one to satisfy your Italian taste buds. And the debate--which is better, deep dish or thin crust?--will continue until somebody invents a better mousetrap. We became acquainted with Beggars Pizza when we celebrated our 50th high school class reunion at the location... More

I have never been to Illinois, so my goal on this trip was to try every food place there was in 3 days. Since pizza is my favorite food, there was no way I could come all the way here from VA and not try a true/real deep dish pizza. Beggars (Atmosphere): We had a group of at the minimum... More

Four of us met for a business meeting at Beggars. This is a pretty big place, lots of rooms but rooms are open to each other so it's really noisy. We had a hard time conversing so we decided to eat first and see if it quieted down. Beggars has an all you can eat buffet and a big menu.... More

I am a native Chicagoan and I was directed here by a friend. The experience was completely disappointing. The ingredients did not even taste real. Can anyone say synthetic cheese? There are some many wonderful pizza selections in this great pizza town but this is NOT one of them.

Thin crust pizza at its BEST! If you like thin crust pizza, then this location is ONE of the best. Lots of cheese and meat on their pizza!

This is our go to pizza restaurant. I do like the pizza. However, every time we go we are waiting, waiting, waiting for the waiter to come back. Have a feeling he's in the bar area watching the basketball game. We've been waiting for 15 minutes to wrap our pizza and bring our bill. This happened the last two times... More
