Chicago-style pizza is ingrained in Chicago lore, with its stuffed crust used to lay the foundation for City Hall and its thick tomato sauce ladled atop incumbent mayors every election day. Taste history with today's Groupon to Tortugas Cafe 280. Choose between the following options:
- For $6, you get $12 worth of pizza for lunch.
- For $10, you get $20 worth of pizza for dinner.
The pizza pros at Tortugas Cafe 280 construct a menu of pies made with fresh ingredients and homemade dough and sauce. Lunchtime noshers tuck into Chicago-style slices ($6.05 each), thickly layered with Tortugas' house-blended cheese, handcrafted sauce, and toppings such as sausage and pepperoni or spinach and mushroom, making it doubly effective for anchoring helium-balloon bouquets or stabilizing tables with uneven legs. During dinner, guests enjoy the gustatory opulence of whole pies ($7.75–$27.75). A quartet of meats top off the Carne Special pizza ($19.20 for medium thin-crust), and the mexicana ($19.20 for medium thin-crust pizza) builds cross-cultural bridges with its spicy blend of homemade salsa, ground beef, and endless supply of suspension cables.
Roust a slumbering appetite with starters such as mozzarella-cheese sticks ($6.95) or café sausage ($8.10), which swaddles bite-size bits of spicy italian sausage with mozzarella cheese in a flakey dough overcoat anointed with honey. Fill fists or safety deposit boxes with Tortugas' signature sandwich, The Tuga ($6.95), which spans the distance between hoagie-roll halves with a trio of Boar's Head salami, canadian bacon, and pepperoni.
