Sunday Night Wait Time For Pizza?

Elyssa | Jul 26, 2007 07:49 AM

I will be in Chicago for the weekend and want to treat my boyfriend and his Dad to their first ever tasting of Chicago-style deep-dish pizza. (I've had it plenty of times since my parents are both from Chicago).

We will be staying at the Sofitel Water Tower Hotel so I think the closest places to us is Gino's East-River North (located at 633 N. Wells St) and Lou Malnati's a few blocks down at 439 N. Wells Street.

We have late flights...around 9pm or so out of O'Hare but I was wondering what the wait time to get a table usually is at these places on a Sunday night? I imagine they don't take reservations so I was wondering around dinner time how long will we have to wait roughly?

Also...I know this is a hot topic (even in my own household) but are either of these locations better for the traditional deep dish cheese pizza? I don't think either is the original location but I'm sure they more then stand up.
