Sure, Gino's and Giordano's have tasty pizza, but you can't knock the original...though you might not recognize it. Pizzeria Uno changed its name to Uno Chicago Grill to reflect its "new Chicago warehouse look" and a fresh menu of "hip and intense new tastes that are built on Uno's history of artisanal fare." Umm, OK, so long as artisanal means gooey deep-dish pizza.
Located in a converted home, the restaurant has a unique ambiance and, quite often, long lines. The fancy new menu has flatbread pizza, but go for the mile-high one; we like the Farmer's Market, with caramelized onions, spinach, sun-dried tomatoes, eggplant, plum tomatoes, pesto, feta, mozzarella and grated Romano. Meat-fiends should try the (no joke) Bacon Cheeseburger pizza. Two slices should do any normal appetite very well; you'd have to be super-human (or super-hungry) to down many more.
Average cost: $10-$20
