We regret that the Rolling Meadows Gino's closed, but it was worth the drive to the Chicago location just off Higgins Rd.

The problem is the wait - We waited 45 minutes after they had said the pizza would be ready. FOURTY FIVE MINUTES!!.. Granted you guys were busy. But i hope you can get yourselves staffed well enough to take on a busy rush. I mean, it was dinner time. Its your priority to have lunch rush and dinner rush well staffed! Please take this into consideration and don't take it in a bad way. Also, it seemed that the pizza was lacking cheese. Thank you for listening. Purvish Patel

We ordered two deep dish pizzas ahead of time and it we ready by our reservation. We were also seated in a private room which was great because we had two toddlers and a baby with us. It was a comfortable dining experience.

Our deep dish pizza took 50 minutes, that's on top of the time to get seated, get the waiter to come over and get our drinks and our order, that's way too long. Also, you are the only pizza joint that charges $3 for a child's lemonade. This was our first time Kelley's Roadhouse Gino's East and won't be back.

I have been to the Gino's East locations in Rolling Meadows and Chicago many times before and I definitely preferred those locations to the "No Graffiti Zone" Libertyville location. The place just looked a little too sanitized for me, and having told my kids this is the one restaurant chain where you can write on the tables and walls, they were a little disappointed. Perhaps that kind of atmosphere is just a little too out of the box for Lake County, so I will stick with the Cook County locations in the future.

From Our Editors

In 1966, taxi drivers Sam Levine and Fred Bartoli finally became fed up with their stop-and-go lives full of honking horns and rush-hour traffic. So they shut off their engines, handed in their keys, and took root. Along with pal George Loverde, they invested in property just off the bustling Magnificent Mile, but then didn’t know what to do with it. According to a 2004 profile in the Chicago Tribune, they got their direction when someone finally said, “Put pizza in it.”

Though the rest is history, it wasn’t quite easy. Bartoli and Loverde came from Italian and Sicilian backgrounds, but neither knew the key to a good pizza. It wasn’t until they hired Alice Mae Redmond, the woman responsible for the dough at Pizzeria Uno, that the Gino's East Chicagoans know and love was truly born. Although Alice Mae retired back in 1989, the recipe for her flaky, golden deep-dish pizza crust lives on.

Today, Gino’s still stands at its original spot on Michigan and Superior but has also stretched to 10 other city and suburban locations. Whether dining downtown or in St. Charles, customers find Alice Mae’s signature crust piled with mounds of cheese, sauce made from vine-ripened tomatoes, and plenty of fresh toppings—from sausage and pepperoni to jalapeños and ground beef. Hot from the oven, pizzas arrive at tables snuggled inside seasoned deep-dish pans, ready to welcome a fork and knife. Thin-crust varieties are also available for those who don’t know how to work silverware, as is a bounty of sandwiches.
