Real Chicago style pizza
So a few years back I went to Chicago for a Cubs game (Wrigley Field is the best stadium I've ever been) but while I was there I had my first taste of real Chicago style pizza. Does anyone know where to find some real Chicago deep dish pizza out there. BJ's is a joke that is not even close to what they have in Chicago, out here in Upland there is place called "Chicago Joe's" and they suck it's not Chicago deep dish at all.
I love ze fresh brothers. it isn't Giordano's style, but their deep dish is awesome.
Chicago Pasta House in Moreno Valley. This probably the closest you'll find to a Chicago pie around here.

How far you willing to go? Upland to San Diego?
The Pizzeria Uno est. 1943 claims to be the start of the Chicago Deep Dish. It's on the corner of Wabash and Ohio in ChiTown. Hands down THE BEST deep dish I've ever had.
I guess there is a franchise in San Diego off Friars Rd.
Taste Chicago in Burbank, owned by Joe Mantegna. Yes, that Joe Mangegna.

I haven't had a bad thing there yet.
I'm actually more of a NY style fan than Chicago style, so take this for what it's worth...
It's Maxwell Smart's favorite place, and he's the one that took me here. The pizza was really good and it weighed a ton (for some reason, I equate weight with goodness for Chicago pizza) I almost dropped the pizzas as I slid them off the counter they were so heavy.
Tony's Pizza of Placentia
Not too much seating in here, but if you happen to be in North OC, you cna give it a try.
(just over the hill on Imperial East of Placentia Blvd is my 2nd favorite NY Pizza place, Mammalucco's)
Good call! Tony's Little Italy is really good, I think they are on par with Chicago Pasta House.

The interesting thing is that you can have Lou malnati's pizza flown in to you. They bake it, freeze, pack it in dry ice and send it to you. And it's not that expensive. One pizza is $40, but 2 is $60 or you can get 6 pies $100 including shipping costs.
Hmmm...Hockey playoffs, Kings away game...PIZZA PARTY!!!!
Here is the link to Lou's website:
