In 1966, two cab drivers and their friend 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. They invested in property just off the bustling Magnificent Mile, but then didn’t know what to do with it.
Today, Gino’s still stands at its original spot on Michigan and Superior but has also stretched to a number of other city and suburban locations including Texas, Mexico City, Mexico, and Wisconsin. Whether dining downtown or in one of the suburban locations, 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.
