Uno Chicago Grill is a pizzeria and grill located on International Drive in Orlando. I recently dined there with my family while on vacation and I loved the place so much I decided to review my experience online!
I started my experience at Uno Chicago Grill by rushing through the rain to get into the door. The outside of the building was aesthetically pleasing and looked fairly new. The inside was the same. The design of the restaurant was very modern and clean. There were plenty of flat screens throughout the restaurant as well.
The hostess was very friendly and we were seated within seconds of our arrival! I looked over the menu and started off my meal with a seafood dip appetizer. The dip was superb! It was extremely cheesy with sweet chunks of crab meat and tiny shrimp throughout, and served with what seemed like oversized croutons to dip with. You could tell whatever the crouton-like bread they served to dip the seafood appetizer with was made just seconds ago. The freshness of that crouton caused me to overeat on my appetizer and lose some of my appetite, but I still had my Strawberry Walnut Salad and Chicago Deep Dish pizza to enjoy!
The salad was amazing! There was a lot going on in there between the strawberries, roasted walnuts, cheese, raspberry vinaigrette dressing, lettuce, and spinach. It all blended perfectly into a beautiful concoction of greatness in my mouth.
I couldn’t even start my pizza while I was at Uno Chicago Grill, but I took it back to the hotel and had the best midnight snack of my life that night. The crust was still crispy after hours of refrigeration, and the sauce was uniquely splendid! This is one of my all time favorite pizzas!
Uno Chicago Grill is not your typical pizza joint because they offer real Chicago deep dish pizza made with fresh ingredients! Quality and freshness is not something you typically experience with pizza restaurants, likely due to the fact that big chain pizzerias use frozen ingredients made at the cheapest cost possible. If you love tasting the robustness of fresh tomatoes in your pizza, you will love Uno’s pizza!
