Lefty's Chicago Pizzeria

The ultimate is Lefty’s “stuffed” pizza, a 14-inch, 8-pound monster that needs one hour “make and bake” time. They do Chicago hot dogs, char burgers, beautiful spicy fries, juicy Italian beef au jus sandwiches. Inexpensive to low-moderate. Also at 4030 Goldfinch, Mission Hills.

Best deep dish in San Diego. The sausage there is a homemade secret recipe and is my favorite. It can be hard to find a seat or parking but in between lunch and dinner it isn't a problem. The best part is the PBR on tap for only $2. What more could you ask for when having a slice or two than a cold beer, and the whole crew there is cool.

Lefty's Chicago Pizzeria has Chicago style deep dish pan pizza and vienna beef products that makes you feel you are back in the "Windy City". The deep dish pizza is a meal in itself and the hot dogs and Italian Beef sandwiches dipped in 'da jus’ sauce are delicious. The food is always served right out of the oven or from the grill. The atmosphere is very open and friendly with lots of Chicago sports memorabilia on the walls. The restaurant has indoor and outdoor seating. For having only 1 our 4 places to carry vienna beef products in San Diego, Lefty's works because of the quality of food, the great atmosphere, and the reasonable prices. Kudos to the Lefty's for keeping Chicago food relavant!

Forget Dominos, Papa John's and Pizza Hut, look no further than Lefty's Pizzeria. I am orginally from Chicago and Lefty's brings a lil' bit of home here to San Diego. The Deep Dish Pizza is DA' BOMB and the chicago dogs, along with italian beef can never be beter. What also makes this place great is the staff. If you don't want to order a full deep dish pizza, they offer 2 slices and a soda for less than $7. Trust someone who is from Chicago, Lefty's lives up to what real pizza is supposed to be.
