Their own take on creative pizzas
3463 N Clark St.
Well here we are in Chicago, our first day, and we end up at the Belmont Sheffield Music Fest. That’s another story, but what a great time. This neighborhood in Chicago puts on an annual street fair complete with cover bands. We have seen quite a few but the headliner was called “Wedding Banned” They turned out to be the best cover band we had seen. Now we’re hungry.
Chicago style pizza, can’t wait. Let’s eat at Dimos Pizza. Wait a second, this isn’t Chicago style pizza. Turns out, it’s much better. Let’s see, how can I describe this place. The pizza is sold by the slice, or you can buy a whole pie, but the ingredients are anything but ordinary. It’s bit hippie, a bit cutting edge, all while being really simple. They serve pizza and cans of soda. That’s it. Well not normal pizzas. Pizzas like “The Mac”, the “Finger Lickin Chicken Fingers”, or one we had the “Steak Nacho.”. Seating are these really weird benches where you can get to know your neighbor, and the dining room is tiny. But man is the pizza good. This was the most memorable pizza we have had since Big Ed’s in Oak Ridge TN. Maybe I’ll do a review on them soon. Oh, be sure to go to the bathroom. It’s in the kitchen. Really weird.
We walked in and were helped by a really friendly guy, and another bigger friendly guy. They were really helpful, explained how this whole slice thing worked and helped us with some selections. I’m not a fan of pizza by the slice, how long has it been sitting out etc., but that’s not how it’s done here. You order a slice, they put it in the oven, and it comes out as good if not better than when it was made. Why don;t they do that everywhere? Anyways, we ordered a pizza, half steak nacho, and we told them to put whatever they wanted on the other half.
We wanted some drinks, (Alcohol variety) but they don’t have them. No problem, it’s BYOB and the liquor store is right next door. I walked over and got us some drinks while the misses saved us a table.
The pizza came out, and what I thought was a scary move ordering that steak nacho pizza, quickly became the best move I could have made. It was the best pizza I have ever had. Totally outside of ordinary, yet it all worked so well. The steak was great, the carne asada was awesome. We were soon fighting over the last piece. I thought about ordering another but didn’t, now that I’m back home, I wish I had. The second half was more traditional. Sausage, cheese, red sauce, bacon, pepperoni, a sort of meat lovers. Sausage was spot on, a really great pizza. The crust by the way is just great.
Anyways, not much more to say about this place. It’s a huge winner in my book and when we go north to Chicago again, you can believe we will stop in.
Really cool pizzas and toppings
Can order by the slice
