I try to get to at least one White Sox game a year, which allows me to enjoy watching my White Sox, and enjoy eating the best pizza in the world - Connies Pizza. The first peice of food that entered my mouth, was one of Connie's deep dish sausage pizza which made me really appreciate the good food in chicago. I didn't realize they closed at 9:00 and they didn't even blink an eye as they sat us and served us for over an hour. The year was 1985, and the summer was very hot that year. I checked out Connie's web site and discovered the rich history and endorsements rightfully acknowledged of Connie's Pizza. We hope you will all be customers for 55 more years! I ordered two of the pizzas and it was the best pizza I have had and it was frozen for delivery.
We got there between 8:30 and 9:00 pm after my daughter's graduation. The Connies Glen Ellyn location catered a private party at our office on September 4th. We all enjoy celebrations throughout the year. My kids asked 'isnt that grocery store pizza? I thought it was a bit strange that no one else was there but it was one of those stormy nights and some of the businesses close by had lost their power, so I thought people either went home after graduation or assumed places would not be open because of the power outages. The Branch manager Frank was extreemly helpful when planning our event. We entered the ballpark and almost immediately noticed the concessions windows that said DiGiornos.
One day at lunch time one of the senior employees over me came in the building with a slice of pizza that smelled and looked amazing. When ever I visit Chicago, I make sure to make atleast a couple visits to Connies. Browse around our web site for photos of some of the delicious cakes we make. We also make cookies, brownies, full size and mini cupcakes, and vegan and gluten free cakes. I remember working for the main post office downtown Chicago as a 18yr. We are still family owned. I moved to Memphis, Tn.
We no longer play records, we download tunes. I just wanted to say thanks and recognize the staff who were at Connie's in Naperville on Wednesday night, May 25th. My pizza party was such a hit, we celebrated my cousin Eddie's 19th birthday there too!!!. Even though our event was on the small size he treated us as if our satisfaction was his number one priority. There are some things, however, that have not changed. Now that I live in Michigan, I miss two things about Chicago - baseball and pizza.
I celebrated my 26th Birthday the Connie's Archer Ave location with my family. All I can say is I will be eating a lot of your pizzas and driving to your Naperville restaurant for the full menu. Being from down State Illinois I never heard of Connie's pizza. Thank you Connies, for satisfying my pizza fix. They delivered exactly on time and the food was great. And Dad still has the final word! These are a few reasons why I love Connie's pizza and will be a customer for a lifetime and will continue my birthday pizza party a tradition.
I am not a southern girl, strickly northern! Then give us a call so we can make something special for your celebration. The one thing all these celebrations have in common is cake. Everything from the pizza to the ambiance was fantastic, especially the service from Edgar Mgr , in our many visits to Connie's, Edgar always gives us a warm welcome and makes us feel at home. Did I read that right? Birthday Parties, First Communions, Bar Mitzvahs, Graduation Open Houses, Quinceaneras, Bridal Showers, Baby Showers, and of course, Weddings. Keep up the outstanding job of having the best pizza chicago can offer! We are still obsessed with quality and service.
Something that I can't get in Memphis. Connie's is an item on the Oberwies delivery menu and I am an Oberwies representative. Well I ran out there to get a slice before my lunch ended, and my god, that was some of the best pizza i have ever tasted. This year I drove down with my family on July 4 to see the White Sox play, watch some fireworks and of course eat some pizza. I came home in June and attended the taste of chicago which I do every year. We have opened new restaurants and expanded into frozen foods nationwide. .
