fantastic thin crust pizza! On Mondays they have 1/2 price pizzas if you dine in. The back room is quiet and usually empty perfect for a family to enjoy a simple dinner with their pick of what to play on the 2 TV's.

Had to eat because I was starving. However I ordered a large cheese pizza for $16. Worst pizza ever. Had a weird taste. And a pool of grease in the middle one of the worse pizzas I have ever tasted. I have had $5 pizzas much better than this.

They have the best pizza. The crust is almost like a cracker. It did take a while but it was definitely worth the wait. They have a nice outdoor area for smokers. The staff is nice and pleasant. The bar area is a little dark for my taste but it's a bar.

There are many great pizza places in Chicago but Waterworks pizza is a stand out. Yes, the decor, well it reminds me of a lodge in Wisconsin and needs some work but the pizza nothing short of outstanding.
