Pizza-timid guests can sample a commanding menu of handheld edibles such as the grilled chicken pita ($7.49) or myriad burgers and sandwiches. Mount an expedition to excavate the Sunken Treasure—sweet sedimentary layers of Stroh’s ice cream, Sanders hot fudge, and whipped cream, concealing a warm fudge brownie foundation ($4.29).
- I am a big fan of Shield's pizza - it is deep dish... thick and doughy and the toppings and sauce are fantastic. – Valerie G., Yelp, 1/27/10
- The place is actually pretty spacious and the menu is extensive with bar foods and pizza varieties. I last had a meat-lovers pizza and potato wedges, and they both were yummy. – Cherice J., Yelp, 6/27/08
