Nostalgiaworld -- Jim & Pete's Pizza

chicgail | Mar 24, 2007 07:26 AM

When I was a child, I think the first pizza I ever tasted -- and certainly the one that was most a part of my life, was from Jim & Pete's on North Ave in Oak Park. It may not have been the best pizza I ever had, but it certainly defined what pizza was supposed to taste like for me.

I have learned that there is a Jim & Pete's a little further west on North Avenue in Maywood or Melrose Park or maybe it's even Elmwood Park. Does anyone know if that's the same Jim and Pete's and, if it is, if their recipe for pizza is the same as it was 30 years ago?
