Chicago thin crust pizza is a dicey proposition in general, so I think a grain of salt needs to be taken at the onset of this review. That said, Yak-Zies does manage to shine in a few key places. The first place being Summer. Yes, that shining I spoke of is primarily the sun, and Yak-Zies takes advantage of every last ray with a great outdoor seating vibe that’s filled with energy (code for young people getting inebriated).
The other shiny object to discover is their famous Chicken Tang Pizza. It’s less novel nowanddays, but once upon a time they were one of only a handful nationwide who offered a Buffalo chicken pie. And being the heat-seeker that I am, I do loves me some Buffalo chicken. Unfortunately though, The Tang is not all that spicy hot. It’s more the flavor of Buffalo spices and therein lies my gripe. The failure to commit. I mean the least they could do is offer up varying degrees of torture, but sadly that isn’t the case. But what can you expect from a sports bar? Lucky for them their pitchers of draft beer are so damn affordable it’s hard to stay mad for long.
