Best pizza in Chicago; everything on the menu is pretty good. They don't mess around when putting toppings on the pizza, although I wouldn't recommend ordering more than three. I've been hooked on this place for about about a year and refuse to get pizza anywhere else, "what are they putting in my pizza?!"
Mike, a local.
Ok hear is the deal. I have a hard time eating at any place more than two or three times. Alberto's has the best pizza I have ever tasted in chicago. They always have fresh slices ready to go at anytime of the night when all other businesses are closed. The idiots on here posting reviews about the sauce is bland and so forth. He is lying. Maybe he is one of the many eating places on Morse street. I AM ADDICTED to there pizza and wings. I have eaten pizza in many other states as NYC, and in counties as Italy and Sicily. J. B. sweeps them all away. And they will take care of you if you feel that something was wrong with your order. Once I believed my pizza was to cold and they gave me free slices. So if you are new in the area go check them out. Tell them Mike sent you.
Home of the "The Giant" pizza--so big, the box won't come close to fitting into the fridge.. The Scene Rogers Park takeout/delivery pizza parlor serves up thin-crust, deep-dish and stuffed pizzas. Be forewarned that delivery times can be lengthy--when they say an hour, it'll be an hour (and often-times a lot longer).
The Food While the menu is enormous--ranging from Italian beef and burgers to lasagna and barbecued ribs--the specialty is quite obviously pizza. The massive "Giant" is plenty for a group of 10--it's a favorite of local schools since two Giants can easily feed an entire classroom. Thin-crust pies rule here, with toppings and cheese applied sparingly, fitting well with the not-too-thin crust. The deep-dish variety turns the tables, though, with piles of toppings and cheese, with a crust that is more bread-like than the flaky variety found at many Chicago pizzerias. Ribs are available in either half- or full-rack, with a sauce that has a bit of a vinegar kick.
Won't find a better pizza north of Foster Ave..
I can't express how much I miss this place since moving out to the east coast. Easily the best place for a stuffed pie in Roger's Park. Get the tomtato, sausage and garlic for a real gastronomic treat. (That's a good thing.) And don't listen to the haters; JB Alberto's makes a mean pizza you won't want to miss.
Bland and soggy.
After all the rave reviews, we were sadly disappointed. The sauce was the blandest I've ever had, the whole pizza had little flavor even tho there were ample toppings, and the crust was the consistency of soggy cardboard. Over all vote: communion wafer with canned tomato sauce on top. On the plus side, they were very friendly and delivery was fast, even late on a Friday night. 14", 3 topping with delivery: $17.19. P.S. our dogs enjoyed it!
I must use atleast 5 different numbers to call them and they know each one!!! They have the best pie on this side of town.They are friendly and fast. You can pick up a pizza,even a giant for under 30 minutes.Good on those days you need a quick dinner.I just love them!! Thanks JB
North side fave for delivery pizza.
The huge-sized thin-crust pies from JB's are famous all over Rogers Park. This isn't fancy-pants pizza -- go for sausage or pepperoni. Don't be shocked by the price on the huge pie -- it's bigger than any pizza you've seen before and will serve a crowd.
The Best Pizza in Chicago.
I grew up 1/2 a block from the place them moved an hour away and I still get pizza there. The fries are great, the pizza is excellent, the ribs are delicious; all they have is good stuff. I wish there were one out in the suburbs!
Best in Roger's Park.
You know it's pretty bad when they know your voice. We order from them at least 2-3 times a week. Love their Spinach & Mushroom stuffed pizza. Personally, I really like their thin crust, but the stuffed is incredible. Try the meatball sandwich and always deluxe the sandwiches because the fries are those wonderful steak fries.
Home of the 30 second pizza order! While we don't always order pizza, all the menu items have generous portions, great flavor and excellent value. My kids, who live 60 miles north of me, say it's the best pizza they have ever eaten, period! I second that. ALWAYS delivered HOT in under an hour. I swear they bake it on the way to the house. Deep-dish has perfect balance of "stuff" to dough, and the dough is great! We order from them at least twice a month, usally more often.
