[Chicago Pizza News] Happy 91st Birthday Fred Rosati

The Daily Herald recently profiled Fred Rosati, the founder of the eponymous chain. Rosati's now has more than 150 locations spread over 7 states: Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin, Arkansas, Texas, Nevada, and Arizona. Half of the restaurants are family-owned.

  1. I used to get Rosati's all the time in Wheaton, where I grew up. It used to be my favorite pizza.

    I ordered from one of the Chicago branches several times when I was living on the North side of Chicago and kept getting half-assed pizzas that took forever to be delivered.

    They kept cutting diagonal slices and I could never tell if that was intentional or just sloppy. The pizza was never cooked consistently and the toppings was haphazardly distributed. Eventually, I gave up on them.

    If you can find a good franchise, though, I think it's a pretty good pizza.
