The Northbrook outpost of this once-mighty pizza chain—now significantly shrunk and Balkanized under separate ownership—banks on oceanic reserves of nostalgia among suburbanites of a certain age for its unique thin crust Master Pizzas. With their fluted edges and malty-tasting, cornmeal-dusted, paper-thin crusts, the pizzas can be ordered par-baked for takeout and freezer hoarding. These are top-heavy with tangy sauce, and the fennel-rich coarse ground sausage is a particularly exceptional topping. Despite the pizza's popularity, you'll see plenty of blistered cheese-topped bowls of French onion soup, half-pound Angus burger specials, chicken parm, and baked mostaccioli come over the counter. While the point of purchase system is awkward—order and pay for food at the cashier, do the same with the bartender, then wait for your name to be called to serve yourself—complimentary pimento cheese and Ritz crackers after 4 PM ease the hassle. —Mike Sula
