This is a nice bar-restaurant that serves Chicago-style deep dish with Daiya vegan cheese! It's one of few places in the country to get a deep dish pizza with Daiya, as far as I can see (and I'm from Chicago myself).

The first time I got their pan-style pizza, actually, as I heard it works better with Daiya. Be warned that there's a long-ish wait for deep-dish pizzas (35-40 minutes) and pan pizzas (25-30 minutes) as they take longer to make.

The pie was pretty good: I liked the sauce and the crust quite a bit. It wasn't reminiscent of Chicago in any way, but it was just a solid, all-together decent pizza. Definitely better than Amici's, too, which is the other Bay Area chain that offers Daiya vegan cheese.

I later got a 10" Chicago-style pie with mushrooms, green peppers and Daiya ($21 with tax). This pizza is easily enough for three people. The first thing I noticed was that it feels heavy in its take-out box. It was vaguely like a Chicago crust, but a bit too soft, and not crumbly on the edges. Daiya works well on this pizza and I'd recommend getting the Chicago crust over the pan or any other.

The service was friendly and the ambiance agreeably casual. I'll definitely be back.
