It's fun just to drive around downtown once in a while just to see what is going on.

I have actually done that occasionally on a Sat or Sun that I don't have something else to do.  Some day I may even stop to buy something.

There definitely needs to be a Chicago-style pizza joint somewhere not in South Tulsa.

You southies have Savastano's, Marley's (71st and Sheridan) and Gusano's (101st and Mingo).

Now that there are three in South Tulsa, can we get one up here?



There was one in the old McDonald's at 11th & Pittsburg, but it didn't make it 6 months.  The food wasn't bad either, I just don't think they knew how to run a restaurant.

I miss that place. I went there a few times with no complaints. Now the only time I eat pizza in Tulsa is when I make it out to a Chicago-style joint in south Tulsa.

Or when I've had enough beer to overlook the crappiness of Papa John's. It's quite an accomplishment to be that drunk before midnight or whatever too-early hour it is that Papa John's closes on weekends.

There's got to be a spot in the Brady which would work great for Savastano's.  I could easily picture them in a re-purposed brick building.

Next time I do a mass order from Lou Malnati's Chicago style, I'll get an extra for you. You can compare/contrast. I think Savastano's is pretty close.

Do you get them shipped frozen?

Yep. And it really is not that expensive. 6 pizzas for $99 includes shipping. And there are other menu items. If you don't know about Malnatis, just check Food Network or Travel Channel because that place has been featured numerous times.

That's stupid cheap unless they are 4" pizzas.

I think they are between 9-10" and weigh 24 oz. Big enough to feed me and jr.

Chicago's on 11th st. was excellent pizza! I am sad they didn't last. Last time I had a hankering for Chicago style, I didn't want to go all the way to Bixby and went to Marley's where I was greatly disappointed. It wasn't terrible, but not good enough for me to make a special trip to return. The place on 11th was. And I used to eat at Uno's often before they went away.

Guess I'll have to make the trek next time I want good deep dish.

You guy's keep talking about Chicago style pizza as being so different. I remember a Chicago style Hot Dog place at 73rd and Mingo and was wondering. Is there a Chicago style Dog that is any different from other Dog's ? and I am not sure that place lasted very long either.

Also: I remember a M*A*S*H episode where Hawkeye sent off for a certain type of Ribs and I think they were from Chicago. What's up with Chicago style food ?

I don't recall all the requirements to be a Chicago dog but it's basically like emptying the veggie drawer on your dog.

And never. EVER.  put ketchup on a hotdog.  In Chicago that's considered sacrilege.
