Jimano's Pizzeria, a pie palace headquartered in Gurnee, Illinois, is blowing into Denver -- and bringing Chicago-style deep dish pizza with it. When Jimano's opens later this spring at 2950 South Broadway, it'll be the fourteenth outpost for former finance manager-turned-pizza-baker Jimmy OBerto, who operates additional stores throughout Illinois, Wisconsin and Texas.

The menu, a catchall of thin-crusted, deep dish, double dough and stuffed pizzas, pastas, sandwiches, salads, lots of fried stuff and St. Louis-style baby back ribs (weird, but whatever), is only limited by the absence of a liquor license. But a hearing, scheduled for Wednesday, April 7 with the Englewood Liquor Licensing Authority, could mean that you can soon enjoy your fried ravioli, half slab of ribs, meatball sub and "Beast" pizza with an ice cold beer.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
