Beggars Pizza In Crown Point – Authentic Chicago In NW Indiana
Do you ever get the urge to make a run into Chicago to soak up some old world atmosphere, take in a Cubs game and enjoy authentic deep dish pizza? I know I do, and luckily, I don’t have to travel any further than Broadway and 109th street in Crown Point!
I’m talking, of course, about Beggars Pizza. It’s been there four years and business is booming!
“We have thin crust, deep dish and stuffed crust pizzas here,” says owner Randy Medina, “and our deep dish is truly Chicago style, baked in our own unique rotary ovens and topped with Beggars’ own recipe sauce and a ton of toppings.”
The traditional rotary ovens give the crusts a crispy outside and soft center and even heating all the way through. This becomes even more important when you see the mounds and mounds of toppings you get every time. When you take the first bite, you know it’s authentically unique.
“We were the first store to go with the open ceiling concept with stained concrete, and hand-painted murals on the walls,” says Medina. “Cliff, my business partner and I have a real love for old Chicago and wanted to bring that feel here – you can see and feel it as you look throughout the restaurant.”
Beggars in Crown Point keeps a light, comfortable and entertaining family friendly atmosphere in the forefront and is completely non-smoking. The hand-painted murals on the walls have dozens of hidden “Where’s Waldo” style gems that will keep kids and adults alike intrigued. They also have a full liquor bar and wide beer selection.
It’s a great place to enjoy a game, or bring the kids in for a pizza party.
Beggars offers carry-out, delivery and dine in, and they have a lot more than just pizza. Dig into some of the hot wings with traditional wing sauce if you are looking for something a little different. These wings are very fresh and much bigger than wings you get in other places, plus the sauce is spot on tangy and focused. They serve a variety of salads and pastas as well and have catering available.
If you are over by Broadway and 109th street, it’s definitely worth your while to stop in and have a bite and brew while feeling like you’re back in old world Chicago.
