If you love Chicago style pizza or other classic Italian cuisine, then you might want to check out Giordano’s, which just opened a location in Minneapolis, Minnesota, this month. The restaurant hasn’t even been open a month yet and already it has made a name for itself in Minneapolis, a place known for some of the best food around, and the first time you visit is guaranteed not to be your last. Giordano’s first started out back in 1974 in Chicago, with the company offering signature stuffed pizzas to suite your own personal style. Giordano’s quickly began adding locations across the country once word got out about just how delightful this Windy City creation was, and it has finally arrived in Minneapolis for everyone in the Twin Cities to enjoy.
At Giordano’s, you can still get thin-crust pizza, but the stuffed pizza is really what they are known for. There are various toppings you can get as well, such as barbecue chicken, pepperoni, bacon, sausage, and there are even options for veggie lovers such as the veggie pizza. What really sets Giordano’s apart from other pizza places is that Giordano’s has stuffed pies that are 40 percent bigger than their top competitor’s, with the stuffed pizza being two inches deep and offering customers a thick double crust that withstands even the heaviest of toppings. The crust is crunchy and the pizza is thick, which means you just might want to eat yours with a knife and fork, well, at least until you get the hang of just how thick Giordano’s pizza really is. Ordering from Giordano’s is also a little bit different compared to other pizza places around, since you really need to wait about 45 minutes for the pizza to get prepared and cooked, and most of that longer wait comes from how thick the pizza really is. Even if you have to wait another 10 or 20 minutes when you compare Giordano’s to other pizza parlors, it is well worth it, with oozing cheese and some of the best ingredients known to man being offered to you for the most authentic Chicago experience.
You can also get other options at Giordano’s, such as salads and sandwiches, so you might want to try the meatball sub or Italian beef sandwich. You can also get other Italian-style classics such as lasagna and spaghetti, but you can tell with Giordano’s that the flavor is impeccable and it’s real authentic home cooking from people who know what true Italian food is supposed to taste like. You also have some classic dessert options at Giordano’s, mainly the tiramisu and mascarpone with a chocolate and coffee-infused flavor. If you live anywhere near Minneapolis, Giordano’s is definitely a place you want to check out sooner than later, and you can go there on a date or simply order a pizza for your entire family as it’s sure to please just about anyone. You can find Giordano’s at 2700 Hennepin Avenue South in Minneapolis, MN, and you can contact them by phone at 612-444-3143. You might also want to visit their website which is giordanos.com.
