Fast Food

Old Chicago adds new words to its name and dishes to its menu: Try its five-foot pie today!

What is the future of pizza? Will it be rehydrated from tiny pucks, as in Back to the Future? Made available in pill form, like little pepperoni-flavored aspirin capsules, or delivered via pizza drone? These post-space-age pie ponderings are certainly amusing to consider, because here in the present there are more dine-in, carryout and delivery choices than you could take advantage of in ten lifetimes. With so many options, what really makes one pizzeria stand out from the pie pack?

How about creating a pizza that is five feet in diameter and offering free dig-ins to customers just for showing up? That's what Old Chicago Pizza & Taproom , the new name for a 37-year-old Colorado institution, is offering this morning.
