Someone, I won’t name names, made the absurd claim that Texas style barbecue is better in Chicago than in Texas. Absurd.

I’m going to make a similarly bold claim though, but this one is grounded in reality: Chicago-style pizza in the Bay Area is better than Chicago-style pizza in Chicago. Bold? I dunno. I’ve said it before, I’ve been to Giordano’s, which is supposedly among the best. Eh. We went to Pizza Chicago last night and Dave’s with me – it’s really good. Better than Giordano’s. And I think Zachary’s is (on good days) better than Pizza Chicago.

So that’s my claim, it’s better here. I’m willing to be wrong, just name specific places in Chicago that Dave or someone else can verify.
