Review: Silo Pizza and Chili

Coming in hot from Chicago's North Shore, Danielle's Dish went to Silo Pizza in Lake Bluff, IL, to have some pizza and chili on a cold January afternoon.  And yes, these are the best things on their menu (outside of the Taco Salad, according to others - but to me the meat doesn't taste exactly like Taco Bell, so I'll stick to pizza and chili for now).

Do you remember what the old school Pizza Hut pan crust tasted like?  Well, that's what the Silo deep dish crust is - EXACTLY like the old Pizza Hut pan crust!  And then the sauce is sweet with large chunks of tomatoes, and is extremely cheesy (especially when you eat in the restaurant with a fresh hot pizza).  Honestly, the crust is what MAKES this pizza what it is, and I haven't had anything like this since I was a kid with old school Pizza Hut.  Sorry Pizza Hut, your crust now just doesn't compare.

And then the chili - this is the best chili I've ever had.  It comes covered in onions and melted cheddar cheese, tortilla chips on the side, and then the meat - the meat in the chili is SO good!  I'm not sure if it is the same stuff as Taco Bell meat, but I'm not a big fan of ground beef unless it tastes like Taco Bell meat and this stuff does (but in the BEST WAY EVER - it's so flavorful!).  If you ever get the chili to go, you get a huge bag of chips, cheese, and onions to put on the chili yourself which I highly recommend.

  • Go to the Silo for deep dish pizza and chili!  But I'd skip the rest of the menu and just get pizza and chili.  It's worth the drive from Chicago.
