Located in the heart of midtown, Zelda’s Original Gourmet Pizza serves up Chicago style pizza. The dimly lit restaurant is decorated with various lights and old articles. If you decide to come here, you should consider ordering ahead as the pizza will take at least 30 minutes to cook.
On this group outing, I ordered their lunch special for $11, which included an individual pizza, soda, and salad. When our large group arrived, the server took our drink orders, but did mess up a couple of times with providing drinks. We were given a choice of a green salad with various dressing choices or minestrone soup. I opted for the green salad with ranch, which arrived later as a bed of lettuce, a slice of tomato, and some rings of onion. The salad was extremely basic and tasted plain with just ranch. I ordered the pizza with sausage and pepperoni. There looked to be a good amount of sauce and cheese and the size of the individual pizza sufficient. Unfortunately, the sauce was flavorless, and the crust tasted worse than cardboard. There were some pieces of meat in the pizza, but that did not help enhance the pizza taste much at all.
Overall, I was quite disappointed with the pizza at Zelda’s. Also, the server did not seem too friendly as she treated our group more like students and she a teacher. With a combination of bland food and odd service, I cannot recommend Zelda’s. Even though I was not too impressed with Chicago Fire in the past, I would have to steer you to them instead of here.
