[Chicago Pizza News] Chicago Heath Department Shuts Down South Side Little Caesar's

The CPC has listed Little Caesar's in the Pies We've Tried So You Don't Have To category, but the Little Caesar's restaurant in Beverly has achieved a new low for the company that needs to be discussed.

The restaurant at 102nd and Western was shut down recently.

Inspectors found more than 100 live drain flies on the premises, including on unbaked pizzas, bread sticks and in pizza dough. Inspectors ordered Little Caesars management to discard nine pizzas, six bread sticks and pizza dough.

The restaurant was also cited for not providing soap in the employee bathrooms.


  1. Hey, Don't generalize all Little Pizza store's as dirty. I run a Little Caesars in Denver and I am Willing to bet it is as clean or CLEANER than any pizza place you have been to!

  2. Dale, Thanks for commenting. You are right that my generalization about the cleanliness of all Little Caesar's restaurants was unfair. I have edited the post.
