To successfully make pizza, one must toss the proper ingredients into a concrete mixer, wait for the mixture to harden, and then drop in a few sticks of dynamite to blast slices from the drum walls. Today’s deal leaves delicate pie creation to the professionals: for $10, you get $20 worth of pizza and more at Palermo's in Orland Park. This deal is valid for dine-in at the Orland Park location only.
Palermo’s menu serves up authentic Italian flavors with a hearty helping of Chicago style. An authentic appetizer of roma tomato bruschetta ($7) gets the palate nice and olive-oiled before it enters the food-wrestling ring, and noodled delights such as the fresh lobster ravioli ($16) and entrees such as the chicken marsala ($16) will sweetly serenade your swooning taste buds before absconding with their virtue. But the true star of Palermo’s edible opera is the deep-dish pizza ($15.95–$18.95), which braves all kinds of weather on its way to your table and arrives piping hot with your choice of toppings. Jalapeños, black olives, zucchini, love letters, and more can be tucked safely inside the stuffed crust pizza ($16.25–$19.95). For a more level pizza playing field, diners may opt to play chess atop a thin-crust (individual, $7.95; small–extra large, $13.95–$19.95) pizza. Gluten-free pizza (small, $11.95) is also available. All pizzas pair well with a fragrant Sicilian merlot (glass $7.50, bottle $29) from the wine list or a more paisano-friendly imported or domestic beer from the tap.
Ever since it first opened its doors in 1961, Palermo’s has kept its focus on quality ingredients and cooking all its foods from scratch, the most delicious element on the periodic table. Enjoy a south-suburban tradition almost as fun as thinking up new ways to disparage the manhood of Cubs fans with today’s Groupon to Palermo’s.

- The pizza is very reliable, especially if you enjoy a tomato sauce on the slightly sweet side; I prefer the dining room's occasional gourmet-style pizzas, adorned with such goodies as sun-dried tomatoes and artichokes. – Phil Vettel, Chicago Tribune
- This fine-tuning of the menu has made Palermo's of Orland Park one of the best Italian restaurants in the south suburbs. There is a focus here now, along with a singular dedication to getting it right. – Pat Bruno, Chicago Sun-Times
Since its first pizza went into the oven in 1961, Palermo's has been crafting Italian favorites from scratch with recipes passed down through the generations. The restaurant's pizza makers blanket pies in the classic flavors of homemade italian sausage and pepperoni, or glean inspiration from other dishes in Chicago-style beef or barbecue-chicken pizzas. Meanwhile, other Italian staples—all of which are also available for takeout and catering—fill out the menu with such classics as chicken parmesan and penne primavera.
