Casey Rabach And Will Montgomery Review Some Chicago Pizza

Posted by Matt Terl on October 24, 2010 – 12:15 pm

Casey Rabach grew up in Wisconsin, with Chicago as his nearest big city, so he knows Chicago style deep dish pizza. “Very familiar with it,” Rabach says. “It’s a big hit throughout the Midwest. It’s a workingman’s pizza, not a flimsy New York style pizza — nothing against New York style pizza, but it’s not that.”

So when the team got to Chicago yesterday afternoon, Rabach and a few other Redskins players headed out — on a recommendation from former Bears quarterback Rex Grossman — to Giordano’s Famous Stuffed Pizza. What that is, for those who are unfamiliar, is a deep-dish pan lined with a buttery pizza crust, filled with cheese and inaccurately-named toppings, then sauced on top and baked. Forever. If you go to Giordano’s, be aware that a pizza takes upwards of 40 minutes to hit your table.

Anyhow, here’s their review:

Ambience: “Real pleasant,” offensive lineman Will Montgomery says. “Kinda family atmosphere.”

Price: “About what you’d expect,” Rabach says. More specifically, you’re looking at $15.00 for a one-topping small pizza, which is more food than it actually sounds like.

Food: “Absolutely awesome pizza,” Rabach says. “Very good take on the traditional Chicago deep dish pizza.” Montgomery concurs. “The pizza was great, and we’re all happy.”

Value, And Teasing Will Montgomery: “Each slice weighed in at about six pounds,” Rabach says, “which came as a surprise to Will Montgomery. He had high expectations for himself, which he failed to achieve. He told me, ‘Just to let you know, I can eat, like, three-quarters of a pizza.’ I think he had two and a half pieces. I’m pretty disappointed in him.”

Montgomery nods sheepishly. “I thought I was going in for a whole pizza and I only got three slices in,” he says. “But I think each slice was really like four regular slices, so I had about twelve slices on the conversion ratio.”

This review refers to Giordano’s Jackson location.
