    they were great 25 years ago back in Chicago. their frozen pizzas (which is what they serve) here have been going down hill ever since.

  • Maybe a real deep dish place like Lou Malnati’s or Giordano’s can be convinced to open up here…

      Your comment is funny because Pizzaria Uno invented deep dish pizza.

      • I understand that they invented it, but the restaurants I listed care much more about the quality of food they produce, rather than cutting corners to spread across the nation. Uno’s might have been great once, but their time on top is looooong past.

        I agree with loganhc. Maybe instead of using wikipedia to try to sound smart…you should just try the pizza. Giordano’s is so much tastier than Uno’s.

      Yeah, maybe we could even get a branch of the restaurant that invented deep dish pizza! Oh wait…

    • Of course Lou Malnati started his own place after running Pizzeria Uno with his father — but your point is taken.

    The last meal I ate before leaving for the Peace Corps was at this very Pizzeria Uno. I thought about that pizza a LOT over the following 2+ years!

      wow, your stint must’ve been rough. did they only serve gluten balls and goat testicles where you were or something?

      • RPCV

        Sheep, not goats, but otherwise that was pretty much the cuisine!

    Uno = Overpriced mediocre pizza.

    You might as well just order Pizza Hut and save money.

      Or buy frozen Uno pizzas from the grocery store. When I’m in the mood for deep dish pizza, I make it myself. It’s pretty easy to make if you have a cast iron skillet.

    This was a happening place circa 1988 back in Georgetown’s heyday.

      Sunday of labor day weekend, 1983. Went there with a bunch of folks from my dorm, my first weekend in town as a GW student.

      Met the man I am now married to that night, there. Although, he doesn’t remember meeting me.

    I won’t quibble with the hate on the chain restaurant cuisine but the booth in this restaurant that was perched over the downstairs downstairs dining area and overlooked the bar really was one of the coolest tables in Georgetown.

    Yep, they used to be good, but that was a long time ago.

    I worked here for a summer during college in the late 90s. Back then the pizza wasn’t frozen, and it was pretty tasty. I ate one pretty much every shift I worked, so I should know! It was hard work being a server in a restaurant with four levels–lots of stair climbing to get from kitchen to prep area to tables!

    Where am I going to buy my drugs now? Damned gentrification. Time for a panel discussion somewhere.

    Oddly the original Uno location in Chicago is nothing like any of their chains, menu, food or otherwise.
