In 1943, when Ike Sewell opened a restaurant at the corner of Ohio Street and Wabash Avenue in Chicago, Americans only ever ate pizzas as snacks. Ike figured that if you combined some of Italy's old, authentic recipes with impressive quantities of the finest meats, fresh cheeses, ripe vegetables and flavourful spices, pizza could become a hearty meal. That was the start of an American tradition - the Chicago Deep Dish Pizza. Ike's Original Deep Dish Pizza has been imitated many times, but never quite duplicated.
In the mid-1990s, Uno® broadened its concept to encompass favorite dishes that diners expected from a high-quality, full-service restaurant. To expand the menu and meet increasing customer expectations, Uno completed a multi-million dollar kitchen upgrade in its restaurants, installing sauté stations, grills and fryers, and invested heavily in the training of its front and back of the house staff.
The new Uno Chicago Grill locations are larger and feature a "Chicago warehouse" looks that creates an inviting dining environment.
For the hospitality. For the friendship. For the deep-down, soul-satisfying goodness of our classic deep dish. For the inventiveness and tastiness of our seafood, salads and thin crust pizzas. For the feeling you get when you know you've come to the right place.
Because we all need something really good to eat. THAT'S WHY WE'RE HERE.
