Wayne's Pizza & Jimano's Pizzeria

Wayne's Pizza & Ice Cream Parlor
34197 N Us Highway 45, Grayslake, IL 60030, (847) 223-2441

Jimano's Pizzeria
2952 W. Rte 60/83, (847) 949-8400

Actually, I hope that's the right address for Wayne's. I'd ordered off of a coupon a couple of times and I know it's a place named Wayne's...and this is the only one that comes up in a Yahoo search. So presumably it is the right place. I'll have to keep an eye out for another coupon.

We've actually ordered from Wayne's twice -- both times we got the thin crust. Maybe it's a Mid-West thing (I dunno), but it comes sliced into little squares instead of regular pizza style. The Jimano's thin crust came the same way.

Jimano's is pretty good, but I have to say I think I like Wayne's thin crust just a tad better. Both are good kind of NY-style thin crusts. Jimano's is actually probably better for you...the thing that was yummy about Wayne's is that it's got more of a greasy street-vendor feel to it.

Both got here to the house in a reasonable amount of time and were still nice and hot.

I should also mention Italian Ovens (847-223-2717). We *must* have ordered a pizza from there since I have a coupon page from them with a coupon cut out of it. But neither of us can remember remotely what it was like. Which is strange, since we've got pretty good food memories. So I'm guessing that it was okay, but nothing to write home about. I guess we'll have to give it another shot sometime and see. I know some people in the neighborhood recommend it.

You have to ask to specifically to get the pizza, pie cut, in slices. Inevitably though, they end up cutting it into squares from time to time. For pizza, I recommend that you try Kaiser's pizza. There's one in Vernon Hills; but the one in Gurnee is better. It's on 21 just north of Grand Ave. Quonset in Waukegan is another good place to go. It's on Mackery just north of Washington Street.
