In a hurry and need a quick bite on your lunch break or between classes? Your best bets are Fratelli Pizza (downtown location) and Oregano’s.
The slice specials are fabulous and cannot be beat. For $6 (including tax) you get two slices and a drink or a slice, a salad and a drink. Let them upgrade ya for $1.50 more. Fratelli serves up lunch really fast in a relaxed environment. Perfect atmosphere for eating alone or with friends.
While Oregano’s does indeed have a slice special for lunch, instead opt for the personal-sized Chicago stuffed pizzas. They only make a limited number of these everyday, and they do run out early. I’ve been there for lunch at 11:30 a.m. and they were already out. Call ahead to find out what type they’re making each day.
