Like dance partners at a sock hop, pizza dough is meant to be tossed and spun before you can kiss it. You're going steady with pizza with this Groupon.
$10 for $20 Worth of Pizzeria Fare
Choose between the Evanston and Mundelein locations. The menus include thin-crust ($5.75+), deep-dish ($6+), and stuffed pizzas ($6+) as well as ravioli in housemade alfredo sauce ($9.50) and meat or vegetarian calzones ($5). The menus are different at each location; see the Evanston menu and Mundelein menu.
Carmen's Pizza first began kneading its dough in 1979, establishing itself as a destination for authentic, Chicago-style pizza. Although the chefs still bake deep-dish pies with thick, golden crusts, they also hand-toss thinner pizzas and layer ingredients between the twin crusts of their stuffed pies. The 16-topping-strong selection includes perennial pizzeria favorites, including sausage and mushrooms, along with slightly more eclectic options such as giardiniera and pine nuts. Hearty pizzas dominate the menu, but the chefs also blanket orders of pasta with housemade tomato or cream sauces and smuggle sweetened ricotta into cannoli shells.
“I have always loved Carmens but without the Groupon I would not have known they were open again or in Mundelien. I am so happy they are back and the food is as good...”
“I have always loved Carmens but without the Groupon I would not have known they were open again or in Mundelien. I am so happy they are back and the food is as good as ever. I was at the old Evanston location a couple years ago and the quality had really taken a dive. This is now what I had grown to expect. ”
