Small strip mall pizzeria with good Italian style deep dish Chicago style pizza. They have thin, regular and deep dish style pizzas. A bit of a wait but worth it since we were dining in. We did one thin Vegeterian and one deep dish. Between the four of us we couldn't decide which one we preferred. But the men definitely... More

If you go to Pudgey's get the Chicago style deep dish pizza. Be prepared to wait 45 minutes if you plan to dine in or do carry out. We did the hand tossed pizza this time and it was okay. The large is not enough to feed our family - 2 adults and 3 kids under the age of 12.... More

If you're looking for Chicago-style deep dish pizza, this is your place. Best I've had that wasn't from Giordano's. This won't disappoint! And the service is fantastic! I'll definitely be going back next time I'm in Omaha

Be prepared to wait if you order a deep-dish pizza... but it will be worth it. We've always had good food and great service here. The atmosphere is basic: Folding tables, steel frame and plastic chairs, with lots of Chicago posters and paraphernalia. The very first time we visited the owner gave our kids a dollar each to play the... More

I'm originally from Chicago suburbs (favorite CHI pizza is Lou Malnati's, for perspective). My then boyfriend, now husband, started taking me here in fall of 2013 because I get homesick pretty often. It worked. Pudgy's wife now runs the place (he passed spring of 2014), and remembers us every time we come in, which isn't often enough since we live... More

We were craving deep dish pizza and Pudgy's came up as the top choice. We were not disappointed, the pizza was delicious. We had the works deep dish and it was filled with meat and veggies and covered in tomato sauce. The crust has really good flavor and is not greasy at all. The owner talked with us and shared...

It's been a while since we've ordered Pudgy's, so my wife confirmed that they still offer a Chicago style pizza. The order-taker confirmed it. We ordered The Works. What we received is not as I remember Pudgy's. I am not naive enough to think that Chicago style in Omaha will hold a candle to Gino's East or Giordano's in Chicago,... More

Sadly this was the worst gluten free pizza I've ever had. I think it has a lot to do with the fact that the young lady was brand new and working alone. Why the owners would put a new person alone on a Saturday night I don't know but it's not her fault. I just don't think she knew how... More

To begin, we walked in with one family in front of us ordering. When they were done, we continued to look at the menu while the young man, after having taken money, put his ungloved hands into a bag of lettuce for the previous woman's salad, no salad for me, thank you. I looked in back and there was a... More

This isn't really a "fair " rating only because I have discovered I am not a big fan of Chicago style pizza. I am probably the only one in America to say this. HOWEVER. The owner was UBER nice and so was the staff. Everything is very clean. If you are a ranch lover...I would not recommend ordering their ranch.... More
