Topic: Chicagao style deep dish (3 msgs / 50 lines)
1) From: John Brown
years ago when i was at school in Great Lakes Naval Station, payday
meant a trip to Wakegan and the bar restaurant Friar Tucks.  for most of 
my fellow student that meant yard long beers and a pizza,  for me it 
meant a small deep dish pizza,  i would get full on two slices and take 
the rest back to the barracks.  i put  the box in a laundry bag and hang 
out the window, i was on the second floor so no problem with it being 
stolen.  that was my breakfast and may lunch.

I had the wonderful experience of going to Pizzeria Due in Chicago a bunch
of years back with a college buddy.  We're both big guys and finishing off a
typical large pizza was a no problem.  We go into the restaurant and they
would not let us order a large.  They flat out said no, we're not going to
sell you that much pizza.  They reluctantly let us have a medium (which I
think was labeled as 6-8 people).  What they brought over was the "size" of
a medium, but about 3 inches thick!  It must have weighed a good 8 pounds.
We both went well past full and there was still pizza on the table. :(
If you're only experience with Chicago pizza is the Pizzeria Uno chain,
you're missing out on a whole experience.
Of course, all other things being equal, I still prefer NY thin crust, as
it's what I grew up with.  But when in Chicago... :)

Yes, I remember that place.  That was back when you could go to Park 
Place and they served all you could eat spaghetti and meat balls for 
less than $2.00.  I think it was $1.25.  The bar there was open 
24hrs/day also...
