Pizza is the ultimate party food—shareable, crowd-pleasing, and safer to ride than a mechanical bull. Saddle up to a delicious feast with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of pizza and sandwiches at Bill's Pizza & Pub in Mundelein and Bill's Pub North in Third Lake.
Conceived in 1957, Bill's Pizza & Pub still serves a menu of thin-crust and double-decker pies, along with a roster of appetizers and sandwiches. Meat disks form savory constellations on the single-layer pepperoni and cheese pizza ($14.70–$16.20), and the double-decker sausage and cheese pizza stashes its valuables between twin crusts ($18.20–$20.20). The mini tacos ($4) discuss international affairs with an italian-beef sandwich ($6.10), and the carefree third-pound Angus cheeseburger frolics through a leaf pile of coleslaw ($7.35).
Bill's Pizza & Pub
Stuffed deer antlers, a large canoe suspended from the ceiling, and carvings of bears surround diners at Bill's Pizza & Pub. The northwoods seeps indoors at the venerable pizza place, which exhibits the idiosyncratic decor of a lodge. The wood-grained eatery first established its novel dining room more than 50 years ago, when its founder and namesake converted a garage into a roadside pizza joint. There, Bill and his wife, Pat, devised the double-decker pizza that still emerges piping hot from the kitchens at two locations. Both locales exhibit the same relaxed setting, in which families can scarf double-decker slices and freely toss peanut shells to the floor or out windows at mounted policemen.
