If you have had pizza at Uno's since they went to a chain style restaurant you haven't had Chicago style pizza.I have had it twice in Orlando and Lexington, SC and all I came away with was a bad aftertaste and heartburn. The only way to get real Deep dish outside of Chicago is order Malnati's overnight.Excellent!! ........... I forgot the Bears still suck!

Uno's is the only "local" chain restraunt I know that serves "Chicago" style deep-dish.
If you're talking St. Louis, the only Uno I knew (in Kirkwood) closed a few years ago. BUT, Pi has Chicago deep dish, as does Feraro's (my favorite local pie) and Talayna's and I'm sure a few others.
That said, Imo's FREAKED me out the first time I experienced it; I remember saying "I thought we were ordering pizza!" It's definately an acquired taste, but I've grown to love it. I prefer Cecil Whittaker's for my STL style pizza needs. The best thing is, I can have 'real' pizza the next day and shrug it off by telling myself I didn't have pizza the day before, I had St. Louis-style pizza! It's a completely different animal.
P.S.: Woot had a short-lived office in St. Louis, which I'm sure is how that selection worked it's way into the poll.
