Chicago offers some of the most amazing food in the country. If you’re a fan of pizza (who isn’t), Beggar’s Pizza is definitely one to try if you haven’t already. Topped with ample cheese, decently seasoned sauce, and buttery thin crust, this pizza is to die for!
Beggar’s Has Been in the Pizza Business for Over 30 Years
Angelo Garetto opened the very first Beggar’s restaurant at the corner of Western Avenue and 127th Street in Blue Island 35 years ago, and has since expanded to 20 locations scattered throughout Chicagoland. Coming from the south side, this is a pizza I grew up on and certainly one that I don’t think I could live without.
Here’s a cool review from just over in Indiana at the Beggar’s location in Crown Point:
Visit the Beggar’s Pizza in Lansing for a Unique Family Dining Experience
The Beggar’s restaurant in Blue Island instantly became a neighborhood favorite. Soon their clientele included patrons from all over the Chicago area which lead to an additional store in Merrionette Park. After opening five more restaurants in the area in order to keep up with demand and in an effort to reach more of their customers, Beggars is now a growing franchise. If you get the chance, check out their Lansing location at 3524 Ridge Road. This location is one of the last remaining pipe organ pizzerias in the U.S. Be sure to bring the whole family, on Tuesdays and Fridays from 6pm – 9pm you can enjoy a tasty pizza pie and drinks on multi-level seating while listening to Glenn Taller on the massive pipe organ. The kids will love it!
Look for a Beggar’s Pizza near you and see for yourself why so many people in the Chicago area recommend them as their pizza of choice.
