Windy City Pizza has been serving pizza, BBQ, and Sandwiches since 1984. They specialize in Chicago style deep dish pizza and Texas smokehouse BBQ. Rib sticking American food.

Classic Chicago Hot Dog ($6) with mustard, onions, sweet relish, tomato wedges, celery salt on a poppy seed bun was very good. They use 100% beef hot dogs and the quality showed. Each bite was a combination of all the flavors.
Windy City Combo Pizza ($8.75 for 6in Mini) with salami, pepporoni, sausage, mushrooms, onions, bell peppers was a solid 2in deep dish pizza with a ton of toppings. No tomatoes poured over the top. Decent crust that was not cornmealy or buttery.
Bubba’s Combination BBQ (Pork Ribs, Brisket $14.95) with 2 sides and a corn muffin had some VERY smokey BBQ sauce, so make sure you like that. Sauce was liberally applied to the meat. The meat was average, a tad overcooked and not super tender. They cook it from 4-18 hours. Quantities were decent but not enormous.
Windy City Pizza brings you your food after ordering it at a counter. Prices are pretty average. The ribs were average, but the pizza and hot dog were very good. Prices were reasonable and lots of discount coupons are available on their website for takeout, pickup, or delivery orders.
