Grand Stand Pizza is not so grand. I have lived in Chicago all my life and in various areas from downtown, to the west side, to Elmwood Park, to Northwest burbs and I've had my share of great pizza. Grand Stand does not come close. Compared to fantastic pizzas like Rannalli's, Countryside in Des Plaines, Armand's or Spizzico's in Elmwood Park, Nino's in Buffalo Grove, Amato's on Harlem and others, Grand Stand doesn't come close. It is average at best. It seems to be popular in this area (I work 5min. away and we order it often for work parties), but I don't know why. The crust tastes paper-like, the sauce is weak and the cheese is not good quality. I have to give it a 4 out of 10, and that's being nice.
Pros: decent prices
Cons: not the highest quality ingredients
