The Gino’s East story began in 1966 when two taxi drivers and a friend, frustrated with rush hour traffic, decided to open a pizzeria just off Michigan Ave. and Superior St. in Chicago. The Original Gino’s East became an instant legend with local Chicagoans, national celebrities and visitors from around the world.

Atmosphere is great. The deep dish pizza ordered was a sliced Italian sausage. The toppings relative to the crust are spartan. Meager topping portions along with an XL crust netted an imbalanced pizza on the whole. Caesar salad was fine. Service this visit was average.

Not sure what everyone is complaining about. Is the wait ridiculously long? YES, always. Why??? Because it's GOOD FOOD. Every time my wife and I find ourselves in Chicago, we HAVE to stop at Gino's East. This is the best one, in our humble opinions. We go planning to wait at least an hour to get in, and another hour or so just to get our food. This is not a quick experience, and we expect that heading over there. We enjoy the scenery, people watching, and have a couple pints of brew whilst waiting for our pizza and garlic knots. Some of the best deep dish we've had. Are there places even better? Probably.. but not where we're from (Nashville). Our mouths water every time we think about eating here. We'll be back, for sure.

This place is awful. Before we order anything the cashier just told us we could not dine in, though there were plenties of empty space. And 45mins average waiting for any pizza! We ordered soda and the vending machine looks horrible, everything is adulterating with too much water ! We informed the manager if we could just change the soda to water. She told us "it is sweet, ur guys have bad taste" :( this is the most retarded answer I ever heard in my life. *Warning* If you are new in Chicago, do not go this place!

Tourist trap. Not an ounce of the former glory remains. Might as well throw a frozen pizza in your oven and save the disappointment.

Okay before I write this review, I have to first say I am from NY and I am little bias. With out of the way, if you want damn good Chicago pizza, you need to come here. I was sent here by some locals, I said I want the best pizza in town and I was sent here. I love it! This place has been around for years and will be here for years to come. Bring a sharpie and sign your name on the wall while you wait for your pizza.

I've been coming here since the late 80's & the pizza still tastes the same. Worth the time to stop in from out of town but a second place in taste to Ricobene's.

The heaviest, thickest pizza- the south knows nothing about this. It was loaded down with meats in a deep dish. The pizza does not break or slide the topping off when you pick up a piece! It was absolutely delicious and filled my car with the most lovely Italian aroma. It's a must on your trip to chicago.
