Listen, it's no surprise to me that the impossibly hip site largely ignored the South Side when compiling one of their so-called best of lists. Besides Vito and Nick's, the only other entry south of the Loop was Phil's Pizza in Bridgeport. (Yeah, never heard of it either.)
While they might have a bias for that north side deep dish stuff, those of us down here know real pizza is thin and cut into small squares. I do have to give credit to Chicagoist for recognizing the delicious magic that is Vito and Nick's ultra-thin crust pies.
I might be a bit biased. Vito and Nick's is probably where I ate my first piece (not slice!) of pizza and the brown carpeted walls and, let's be generous here, 'homey' vibe of that place is forever seared into my sensory memory.
It's nice to see my Chicago news site brethren giving some props to that magical place on Pulaski. Yet, I can't help think they are missing a few awfully good spots closer to our neck of the woods.
If you haven't been to Vito and Nick's, 8433 S. Pulaski Rd., go now. My recommendation is the sausage, green pepper and onion. Thank me later.
