Armand's Pizzeria

The Elmwood Park outpost of Chicago-based Italian restaurant and pizza chain, Armand’s Pizzeria is and has been a staple for thin crust pizza in a city saturated by its beloved deep dish for many years. The neighborhood pizza joint has been turning out old style antipasto and pastas -- like Grandma’s Meatballs, fried calamari, linguine with clam sauce, and baked ziti -- alongside its lauded square-cut Chicago-style thin crust pizza since 1956. Though you can build your own pizza, the Spotlight Pizza Suggestion will steer you in the right direction. Or, fall back on the Elmwood Park Combo pizza: Armand’s famous Italian sausage and Italian beef with house Giardiniera.
