Being from Chicago, I am always skeptical when pizza places advertise Chicago style pizza. Tortuga’s however hits the mark exactly. So excited to find this place, home away from home when we have a taste for Chicago style deep dish pizza. You will not be disappointed.

This small dining room is directly adjacent to Good People Brewing, one of the larger breweries in the southeast. As a result they deliver to the foodless tap room, and offer a lot of carry out. I found that out after committing to a table in the not-fancy, but clean and new, restaurant.

Pizza is thin crust (the hard crust) and Chicago style. If you are looking for authentic New York style, don't look here. This is southern style with hard crust, lots of cheese and very little sauce. I still enjoyed the fresh toppings and flavor. Service was good!

Phenomenal Chicago style deep dish pizza south of Chicago. We used to live in Illinois and love deep dish pizza from Chicago. The owners are from the Chicago land area and they have brought the deep dish with them. It is phenomenal! The service is fantastic and the owners kept asking us how we enjoyed everything and actually sat down and spoke with us. Very very friendly people. You must go.

Wow! The thin crust traditional is outstanding. We were enjoying a beer at Good People Brewing Co and hot pizza was delivered to us!!

Such a great pizza place. We had a group of 7 for dinner. We were seated right away and placed our drink orders. We ordered thin and deep dish pizzas. Expect to wait a while for them to make it fresh to order. The menu actually tells you how long it will take depending on what kind of pizza you order. And it's worth the wait folks! I didn't try the deep dish but the thin crust pizza was delicious. Crispy crust and perfect ratio of ingredients. Plus, I was thrilled to see that they cut the thin crust pizza Chicago style too, the way I'm used to. We drove to Birmingham from Huntsville just for this pizza and it did not disappoint. We will definitely be returning.
