Oh boy, do we love deep dish pizza. One of our old favorite places in the 80's to get deep dish pizza was 'Uno's Pizzeria. At one time there were 4 Uno's in the Bay Area. Three in the City and one in Oakland, was our choices. They are now long gone. Uno's has morphed into Uno Chicago Grill located in Antioch, California. Antioch is a growing community on the very far outskirts of the Bay Area. We were returning from the Asparagus festival and Uno's was on our flight path home. It was our duty to have an Uno special. This deep dish delight would be our ticket to a blast from the past.
The Antioch Uno Chicago Grill was located in a new conglomerate of chain stores that looked like any other new community of businesses built in the last 10 years. Once inside it was kind of like any other national syndicate of franchised restaurants. This did not resemble the Uno's of our memories. Would we be dissapointed?
We ordered the 'Numero Uno' pizza. This pizza has pepperoni, sausage, mushrooms and onions. It also has lots of cheese and a chunky tomato sauce. This pizza was so good. The crust was very buttery and rich just like we remembered. The meat and vegetables complimented each other to form a beautiful pie. This orb of meat and goodness was a stroll down the pizza memory lane.
One detail of our pizza experience, that stood out, was the outstanding service we received. Our server made our visit most pleasurable. The owner stopped by our table to see how our meal was. When he found out that Ms. Goofy was in the house, he comped us a bananas foster desert.
Great deep dish pizza and wonderful service was a winning combination. The Antioch Uno Chicago Grill will be a destination to return to.
