South Loop

About This Location

For 50 years, the original Gino’s East has been offering the best deep dish pizza experience in Chicago. Since we opened our doors in 1966, we’ve shared millions of our signature golden-crust Chicago-style pizzas with Chicagoans, celebrities, and visitors from all over the world. Don’t believe us? The writing is on the walls! We’re world-famous for our tradition of letting all of our customers leave their mark on our restaurant.

Gino’s East South Loop is located in the heart of the historic Printer's Row district, not far from museum campus.

Gino’s East was voted a must-visit while in Chicago by TripAdvisor in 2015. Come enjoy legendary deep dish pizza at our neighborhood sports bar.

Gino’s East South Loop prides itself on being a Chicago neighborhood hot spot and in response has solely Chicago land beers on tap.

We also offer a large craft beer selection. You won’t find your typical domestic beers here! We also offer wine and house made cocktails.

Please see our menu for our drink selections.

Have the legend delivered straight to your door.
