This was my first time going to the Old Town location of Roots and we loved it just as much as we've loved other locations! The garlic monkey bread is a must, and the chef's specials were AMAZING (albeit a bit pricier than the other pies on the menu). I have a feeling I will be craving the French onion soup pizza I had for months to come.
Hi MMD88, Thank you for your kind words and for coming in! We love the Le Bouchon pizza and all of the Chef series! Hope to see you soon!
We love it!
And we love you! Thanks for coming in!! Cheers, Eric Fritzsche GM Roots Pizza
Great food, and ambiance. Our waitress was helpful in serving a group. Great service. Mozzarella sticks are awesome! Pizza was so good and we liked how we could do half and half of the specialty pizzas.
Hi Jessica, Thank you for your wonderful words! We love our mozz sticks as well!! Hope to see you soon!! Cheers, Eric Fritzsche GM Roots Pizza
Great stop for dinner before Second City show...mozzarella sticks are a must! Great menu and pizza was very good.
Hi David, Thank you for your kind words! I love our Mozzarella Sticks more than any human should! Stop to try our new chef series pizzas, they are delicious! Have a great day. Cheers, Eric Fritzsche GM Roots Pizza
Best motz sticks in town (maybe anywhere?) and the Pizza is very unique as well. Must try if you are sick of traditional pizza joints
Hi Zach, Thank you for you for your kind review! We certainly love our pizza and our new chef series pizzas that are all pretty darn delicious!! Hope to see you soon! Cheers, Eric Fritzsche GM Roots Pizza
It was very positive and our waiter was SUPER NICE!!!! We have been numerous times and it’s always a positive experience.
Hi Elizabeth, Thank you for your kind words! We love our staff here! Hope to see you soon! Cheers, Eric Fritzsche GM Roots Handmade Pizza
I came in and the desk person was on the phone for over 5 minutes. No one offered to say hello or help me. When I finally got seated with my friend who had arrived earlier, no one talked to us. The noise level was very loud; there were way too many children and before anyone could talk to us, we left. No one asked why or offered to move our table. We did not eat there, nor would I go back.
Different pizza than standard Chicago (the best), very good. Worth trying.
Delicious as always! We stayed for drinks afterwards and
our Bartender was very knowledgeable and super friendly.
We love the original Roots on Chicago so the one on Wells was a little disappointing just because of the traffic and the layout. It is a bit more awkward but still the same great food. Our server was super friendly and able to help meet our needs as well bc the app hasn’t been working. I think we will still make the trek to Chicago Roots because of the feel.
Roots was awesome! We had an Indian-inspired pizza which was delicious. We will be back!
Hi Bari, Thank you for your kind words and delightful review! We are pretty darn fond of all of our specialty pizza's! We might have a few more ones to announce soon so stay tuned! Cheers, Eric Fritzsche GM Roots
Their mozzarella sticks were on point! pizza was alright, I didn’t feel like it was anything to write home about.
Pizza was good, but the crust was a little too tough to chew.
Best mozzarella sticks anywhere. Food just as good as Chicago location - though we missed watching the kitchen make the pizza dough!!
Hi Ckop, Thank you so much for your kind words and review! We couldn't agree more about our Mozzarella Sticks! Hope to see you soon! Cheers, Eric Fritzsche GM Roots
I would recommend it as the location and ambiance are great for a casual outing. The pizza was not good as it was not cooked enough and the dough was bad. I was surprised. I will try pasta next time.
We’ve been to the other locations in the past and always really enjoy the food. This time was no different. The food was delicious. Unfortunate, we waited almost an hour for our entrées. The manager was super sweet and apologetic and compared one of our entrees. So the service was great but the wait time was a not long.
Surprised us with remarkable brunch pizzas! Great beers, great service. We’ll be back again soon!
Hi Allison, Thank you for your kind words and for coming in! Hope to see you soon! Cheers, Eric Fritzsche GM Roots
Tried Roots with some friends and it far exceeded our expectations! Amazing add to the neighborhood. Have already gone back and tried their brunch - it was great, too! Go get the pizza.
Quality has suffered from when there was just the one original location. The waitress was not knowledgeable about the ingredients. She even charged me for an item I didn't order and her excuse was I didn't know how to take it off the bill. Overall I was disappointed.
Delicious food, great service! Mozzarella sticks are a must. Pizza was great! Our server Malcom was wonderful. A great Friday night at our new neighbors.
Thank you for the great review! I agree that the Mozz sticks are a must! They are my favorite item on the menu. Thank you for welcoming us to the neighborhood. Please come see us again soon! Thank you, John Aldape Partner
Amazing experience and great food!
Thanks you for the amazing review!
Great pizza, awesome beer list and friendly service. Couldn’t ask for a better neighborhood spot!
Thank you for the great feedback! We're thrilled to be open in this neighborhood. Please come see us again soon! Thank you, John Aldape Partner
Must try cheese stix and pizza is great. very nice selection of tap local beers!! neat looking venue!!
AndyN, Thank you for the 5 star review! I'm glad you enjoyed the mozzarella sticks and the pizza. I'm a huge fan of the rotating local drafts as well... Please come see us again soon. Thank you, John Aldape Partner
This might just be my new favorite roots locations!! Same great food and service but now in a great new location close to lots of nearby attractions.
