Hi all,

 Lets all throw in our picks for pizza places that we remember. This could be a cool forum for us!

 I miss Dominics on 16th and Windlake, and Auggies on 60th and Mitchell? maybe Lapham.

 Thanks.

Dominics was VERY good! Even Papa Stu`s that came years later was well worth the money.

BUT

For some reason , one of THE best pizza`s I ever had was from a chain pizzaria! Embarrassed

BARNABY`s on 27`th st, south of Layton ave.
'
THAT was one great pizza!


I think they stiil might have a Barnaby`s in Illinois.

Barnaby's was good. I used to frequent one out on the northwest side in the late 70's.

 There is a Barnaby's in Elk Grove right bt the airport. I get down that way for business but have never stopped in.

 In the early 70's there was Neds on 16th and Oklahoma (not for long). One halloween they gave kids a free slice! My and my friends must have made 4 trips in there.

 Barnaby website http://www.barnabysschaumburg.com/

History

Originated in the mid 1960's by Angelo Geocaris as a concept named the Brown Bottle. Due to a conflict with Schlitz Brewery which operated a courtesy room with the same name, it was necessary to change the name. At that time Mr. Geocaris purchased the right to the name Barnaby's from a local downtown bar and Barnaby's Family Inn was born. There have been numerous locations throughout the years.

Barnaby's Schaumburg was originally franchised to Jim O'Toole. At this time numerous other franchises and company units were being opened. Mr. O'Toole thought a location in Arlington Heights would better suit his needs, so he arranged a switch in ownership with the Trader Group owned by George Hillgendorf, Ken Linnaen and James Hansen. Under their ownership Barnaby's Schaumburg opened in 1968. Their leadership team over the years consisted of personnel by the names: Don Richards, Del Brown, Kerry Kuhn, Sylvia Strass, John Reed, Marty Kane and John Bray. This team serviced the northwest suburbs until 1980.

Best pizza I ever had was at Zuli's on Hwy 100 in West Allis. My parents used to take us kids there as a special treat. And it was! Alas, I've never come across another pizza yet that matches their crust or tomato sauce. It was magical. Can't quite pinpoint where the building used to be, though...somewhere between Lincoln Ave and Greenfield Ave I think. Will have to look this up in the city directory some day. I think it was bought out by another restaurant at some point. Anyone know who the owner was or when it finally closed?

 There was a burger place out about 27th & College area and I think it was called Scottys. It seemed like chain and had a Scottish guy with bagpipes as some sort of mascot. Is this the place you are trying to remember? I think it was around thru the 70's and then became a Wendy's I believe.

I slightly remember that Scottys place. But, here`s one I doubt anyone will remember. Undecided
There was place on S 27th betwween Layton and Grange (closer to Layton) called Herkys. It was on the eastside of 27th. (might have misspelled it). They had great roast beef and burgers. They were only there for about a year. Back around 1971.

Hard to believe nobody remembers Crown Hamburgers on 27th and Edgerton. It was there for quite awhile in the mid to late 60`s. Embarrassed

 My mom reminded me about a pizza place we would visit in the lates 60's. Auggies on 60th & Burnham or Mitchell. Anyone recall this? My only recall is that it was dark and very red inside. My dad liked it a lot for some reason. Looking back it was like something out of a mafia movie.
