I am a working stiff. I go there. I do work. I eat lunch. I do more.
I go home. And every 2 weeks they put money in my account. It is
kind of like an internship except that I don't get any college credit.
My wife and I were talking about how people are snobby about where
they went to college. For us, even though it was like 8-10 years
ago, people still kind of brag about their college and have pride
and stuff. I like my college and cheer for the Marquette Gold teams
but I don't think I brag about the fact that I was a student there
8 years ago.
Attachment of the Week
of the Week
had been debating buying a vehicle for weeks. He wanted a truck. She wanted
a fast little sports-like car so she could zip through traffic around
town. He would probably have settled on any beat up old truck, but everything
she seemed to like was way out of their price range. "Look!"
She said. "I want something that goes from 0 to 200 in just a few
seconds. Nothing else will do. My birthday is coming up so surprise me!"
He did just that. For her birthday, he bought her a brand new bathroom
scale! Nobody has seen or heard from him since.

at Lincoln and Diversey. That restaurant prides itself on serving quality
pizzas. Dough and sauce are made fresh daily in the restaurant. If you
would provide me with an address, I would be happy to send you some gift
certificates so you can give us another try. Your other complaints are
more difficult to resolve. That restaurant is quite small and was designed
primarily for carry out and delivery service. The tables are simply provided
as a convenience. We simply do not have the space to utilize china and
flatware. We also don't have a fryer to prepare mozzarella sticks in that
restaurant. The restaurant was originally self seating. Table service
was added because of the unexpected demand for seating. Our servers generally
do a good job and I regret that they did not fulfill your expectations.
I hope you will give us another try. Cordially, William Bronner

First off - we are lifetime Chicagoans and deep dish pizza finatics and
we love Gino's and think that it defines Chicago's rich pizza history.
On that note, I want to tell you about our experience at your restaurant
on Lincoln and Diversey. The waitresses that helped us seemed like they
had never waited a table before and I saw them smoking in the alley so
now I realize why our service was so slow. I am not sure, but our pizza
seemed to be heated up in a microwave. Do you cook the pizza at that location
or do you just heat up frozen versions of your pizza? The pizza we ate
was not a Gino's pizza. It was a pathetic version of your typical pie.
The cheese was rubbery, the sauce was cold, and the crust was hard as
a rock. The plastic forks, paper plates, and styrofoam cups were just
a joke. Can you invest a few dollars on real utensils or does that location
not have a dishwasher? We will never go to your restaurant again until
you fix these things or close that location. We also are telling all our
friends about our experience. That restaurant is a disgrace to your Gino's
name. Andrew Ziola Chicago
