Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

Pepperoni pizza rolls, with a side of Ranch Dressing, FTW!

I wasn't sure at first but now I know "St. Louis style" is a euphemism for "horrible".

Chicago deep-dish is the best. If you disagree, you haven't had the right deep dish yet.

Ah, the question is actually Giordano's or Carmen's.

I prefer thin crust, it allows me to fit more pizza into my stomach.

Humbug. It's a pizza with the creamiest, most delicious cheese ever (Provelone), hamburger that doesn't double as sausage bites, and zingy tomato sauce. It's delicious.


Love me some deep dish, but St. Louis style thin crust is the best.

I like "normal" crust pizza. Don't like thick, don't like thin. Gimmie normal-azz pizza. Your special "new york/chicago-style" is garbage. You ain't special new york/chicago (see, don't even deserve being capitalized, not special)!

hooray beer!

Just for the record, St. Louis has a number of Pizza restaurants featuring excellent Chicago style deep dish. Not all of us like provel on a super thin crust.

Pizza and Sex are two things that no mater how bad they are you will never say no to seconds and when someone offers them and you might be willing to try something different.

And for the record... it's Provel, not just provolone, but a combination of provolone, swiss and cheddar.

Truth, and my mistake for not breaking down provel at the time I posted. Still delicious.

Uno's is the only "local" chain restraunt I know that serves "Chicago" style deep-dish. It's not bad, it's just not something that I want to go all the way across the city or order.

(P.S. The poll already says that I'm on the losing side of the argument regardless, still gotta share the love!)

I voted with you. LOVE Imo's. Left STL 11 years ago and when family comes to Cinci, they bring two or three half baked pizza's for us to cook when they get here.

Ugh, the Uno's chain is garbage. If you want good Chicago deep dish, you have to come to Chicago. Or order a frozen Giordano's pizza and bake it yourself.

Psh, Chicago style is like catfish and tofu. There are two types, bad and horrible, and everyone says I just haven't had it made right.

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!

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.

Makes sense, my preschooler wasn't even able to sit in a high chair last time I went. Sad to hear it's gone, though...

PI has been on my "To Do" list for a while, ever since I heard they had a "roving vendor" food truck/van. :D I grew up thinking Cecil's and Imo's were the same thing, but the cheese and sauce is slightly different between the two.

To me it's all about Chicago style. New York pizza barely counts as an appetizer, it has so little substance.

As far as Chicago style goes, it's all about Giordano's or Gino's East.

Tomato Pie [not pizza]: Trenton, New Jersey, is a town known for its tomato pies, and is home to the oldest tomato pie restaurant in the United States [1910]. The pie has thin crust cooked til crispy with the mozzarella placed on the pie first followed by the sauce, just the reverse of pizza.

A snub to Detroit-style pizza! Thick crust improved with fat in the pan, square with crispy, delicious corners. If you have a Jet's Pizza in your area, do yourself a favor and get an 8 corner.
