Ever since the Philly cheesesteak courted Memphis ribs and gave birth to the Phyllis cheese rib, intercity culinary marriages have been hotter than a mojito in 2006. Today's Groupon exemplifies this richly intermingled tradition: for $10, you get $20 worth of eats and drinks at Chi-nnati's Pizza in Madeira. Expose your palate to the cheesy depths of Chicago-style pizza without once violating Indiana's travel ban.
Chi-nnati's pizza menu lets you build your own pie or put your faith in a carefully catered creation such as The All-In—which unites pepperoni, sausage, mushrooms, onions, green peppers, and black olives ($18.95 for a 10'' deep-dish)—or the gourmet Mediterranean dressed in kalamata olives, feta, green peppers, and onions ($16.95 for a 10'' deep-dish). Go thin with the crust if you don't like getting sauce in your mutton chops, or go deep and show off virtuosic spork skills. The deep-dish options take a little more time to slow-bake (around 30 minutes), since Chi-nnati's has to wait for the Windy City to deliver authentic flavors to its ovens via a special pizza portal, then clear out any extra-dimensional monstrosities that came with it. If you get peckish waiting for your pie, Chi-nnati's also serves up hot sandwiches, dogs, and more.
- The pizza was good– the sauce spicy and rich, with lots of cheese, and a good amount of toppings…I liked the deep dish crust, dusted with cornmeal, and liked how well it held up to its toppings. – Wine Me, Dine Me
- I’m happy to report that the Chicago hot dog was a hit. The beefy dog, authentically topped with hot peppers, a pickle, chopped onions and celery salt, was accompanied by a side of homemade coleslaw. – Anne Mitchell, City Beat
