Pizza is among the most successful inventions ever to gain acceptance in America, just behind margaritas, space travel, and mountains. Bite into a borrowed staple with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of pizza, pasta, and more at Nancy's Pizza in Lake in the Hills.
Since serving its first slice in Chicago in 1970, Nancy's has been winning over pizza enthusiasts with an expansive menu of thick- and thin-crusted dough disks, along with comforting Italian dishes. Customize a signature stuffed pie ($15.99–$21.99/cheese only) by choosing from 26 filling options ($1.50–$2/ingredient), or sample one of the pizza shop's tried-and-true deep-dish combinations, such as the chicken broccoli with roma tomatoes or the spicy pepino with pepperoni and banana peppers. Superthin pizza ($5.99–$18.49/cheese only) is streamlined for easy storage and effortless Frisbeeing and comes in nontraditional varieties such as Nancy's original buffalo chicken—a wing-sauced pie housing marinated chicken breast, celery, blue-cheese sauce, and a dash of nostalgia that begs consumers to quit their jobs, flour their hands, and return to their dough-trafficking roots.
For those longing to spend time with borrowed grandmas, Nancy's outputs numerous classic noodle dishes including creamy fettuccine alfredo ($8.25–$11.25) and homemade meat or cheese ravioli ($9.25–$12.25). Likewise, the hardworking chefs concoct an appetizing army of serviceable sandwiches ($5.69–$6.99), salads, and starters, including made-to-order breadsticks ($2.95) and wings served nine different ways ($6.25–$11.95).
