If you are from Chicago, or close by, you will appreciate the true Chicago flavor. Omahans who aspire to become pizza afficianados must move past the local fare and experience what really good pizza tastes like. \r
My wife and I have been searching for this place for over four years. The Pizza Shoppe was pretty good, and The Wayside Inn could also stand in as a place for pizza, but Pudgy's takes top billing by we, who have earned the title of being ""Omaha's Pizza Snobs."" \r
While Pizza is great, you need more of Chicago's famous food. Get your fix of Italian Beef done the right way. Then there is the Chicago hot dog... also done the right way. If you are in a hurry and can't make it to Pudgy's... open a can of Spam... Otherwise get to the only place that does Chicago right... Pudgy's! \r
Pizza and beer!! Ahhhh!! Heaven!!!\r
(We are working on getting the decorating touched up.) It is a little bright, and not opened until 4:00, but it is where Chicago area expatriates must go for the real thing.
Pros: It is the only contender for true Chicago style pizza, Italian Beef and Chicago hot dogs.
Cons: A bit too brightly lit and not opened for lunch - yet.
