What to Expect

Meet at a restaurant in the South Loop near Museum Campus to start your tour.  Hear the history of tavern style pizza while devouring slices and a drink at the first stop.  Our bus then picks you up and takes you through several neighborhoods where you’ll get the chance to literally eat your way through Chicago.  You’ll sit down at several pizzerias sampling a wide range of styles and toppings from some of the most accomplished pizzerias in the world.

Our bus driven progressive dining & drinking tour allows us to enjoy the best Chicago has to offer with no hassles

Lou Malnati's

The most significant name in deep dish pizza, their flagship location in the Gold Coast delivers a true Chicago. experience.

Bacino's

One of the best stuffed pizzas in town. They rely on ultra fresh ingredients to make the massive pizza seem light.

Culturally significant pizzeria with family ties to the creation of the deep dish pizza in 1943.

Paulie Gee's Logan Square

The crust gets its influence from Naples, but the rest of this wood fired pie belongs to Logan Square.

What was once an Al Capone controlled speakeasy, is now one of the best downtown pizzerias.

Tours are typically 3.5 hours, but with Chicago traffic, and restaurants being unpredictable, we cannot guarantee a specific end time.  If you have plans for after the tour, make sure you budget enough time in between.  Our concern is providing the best and most complete tour each time out, your next event is not a priority.

We will take care of tips for all of the servers and bar tenders that we work with, if you’d like to tip your guide and driver, they’d greatly appreciate it although not mandatory.  The standard gratuity in the service industry is 15%-20%.

I highly recommend it! Going into it, I thought we would be doing a decent "tasting" of pizza at each place. Nope. There was TONS of pizza at each place. Our group had so much fun and it was fascinating to try all of the different kinds of pizza and pair with drinks!
